THIS is part of WHAT INDEPENDENCE DAY MEANS….
During the 3-1/2 years of World War II that started with the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor in December of 1941 and ended with the surrender of Germany and Japan in 1945, “We the People of the U.S.A.” produced the following:
22 aircraft carriers
420 destroyer escorts
34 million tons of merchant ships
100,000 fighter aircraft
24,000 transport aircraft
58,000 training aircraft
257,000 artillery pieces
3,000,000 machine guns and
2,500,000 military trucks
We put 16.1 million men in uniform in the various armed services, invaded Africa, invaded Sicily and Italy, won the battle for the Atlantic, planned and executed D-Day, marched across the Pacific and Europe, developed the atomic bomb and, ultimately, conquered Japan and Germany.

It’s amazing what America did in those days and I feel this information is worthy of Independence Day because it was AMERICA-LOVING CITIZENS BEHIND ALL THAT BUILDING UP FOR WORLD WAR II, THAT GREAT SENTIMENT OF “AMERICA FIRST” AND HELPING OTHERS, AND THAT HUGE AMOUNT OF VOLUNTEERS WHO SIGNED UP TO FIGHT FOR WHAT’S RIGHT!
Today, I CELEBRATE CONSERVATIVE AMERICANS……I CELEBRATE OUR PRO-AMERICAN VALUES, I CELEBRATE OUR ASTONISHING ECONOMIC RETURN OF LATE, I CELEBRATE OUR TOUGHNESS TO COUNTRIES AROUND THE WORLD WHO WANT OUR MONEY BUT HATE US, I CELEBRATE A LOT OF THINGS TODAY…EVEN TRUMP, A ‘TOUGH OLD BIRD’…HERE’S ANOTHER TOUGH OLD BIRD!:
HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY!
