Let's get started

When I wrote the lyrics for "This Is Real Country" it was meant to enforce a spirit of pride in our nation. i don't have anything against other countries, but i do have a concern that our people won't have jobs. Jobs are being sent overseas. If American people don't have jobs, how can we have a strong economy. Other countries are coming in and using Americans for cheap labor and buy raw materials for manufacturing at a price that is less than our industries can purchase the same materials. 110% may not work out mathematically, but it works out morally. What I want to convey is that people have that extra commitment to America. We need to be dominant in math, sciences, and in the arts again. The way it was in the 1950s.

Keep the faith,
