Merry Christmas – Because it’s OK to say that again!

December 2019

Hunter Nation Members,

As you gather with your family and friends to celebrate the miraculous birth of our Lord and Savior during the season of Christmas this week, we here at Hunter Nation wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a blessed and joyous New Year!

The War on Christmas, long perpetrated by those who seem intent on undermining America's fundamental values, seems to have taken a back seat this year as everywhere I go in America’s heartland, people from all walks of life wishing one another a Merry Christmas.  And there seems to be a much more joyous tone in our interactions this Christmas season.

Why is that, I wonder?  Well, I think it has a lot to do with the fact that over the last few years, America has become more prosperous, more blessed, and more hopeful than we were during the preceding decade.

We have a lot to be thankful for — although you won't hear much about that from radical politicians or their allies in the mainstream “fake news” media, who seem to spend every day telling Americans that everything is bad and getting worse. But it's just not true.

The fact is that more Americans are working, providing for themselves and their families, and for the first time in a long time — thriving, thanks to the economic resurgence we’ve experienced in the last three years. In short, the American Dream is once again within reach for more Americans with every passing day.

And this Great Recovery hasn't just been limited to better jobs and bigger paychecks. America's values, too — the fabric and bedrock ideals of faith, family, and freedom that hold us together — are also making a comeback. And that's no coincidence.

In a first of its kind study, the American Enterprise Institute earlier this year asked over 2400 Americans about their attitudes toward society and community. What they found not only speaks well of our chances to protect our way of life, but it also provides a blueprint for doing so.

The researchers found that when they asked about what it takes to achieve the American Dream, people didn't just talk about becoming wealthy, owning a home, or climbing the corporate ladder.  In fact, 85 percent of them said it was more about “having the freedom of choice in how to live.”  And 83 percent of this large, diverse nationwide sample said “having a good family life” was essential to achieving the American Dream.

And these patterns also spanned the political divide — with more than 4 in 5 Republicans, Democrats, and Independents saying that freedom is essential to the American Dream.

For the vast majority of us, achieving our American Dream is as much about personal freedom and healthy home life as it is about material success and economic prosperity. That is why Hunter Nation is so excited about what we can accomplish with an army of citizen activists rallying around an effort to protect traditional American values of FAITH, FAMILY, FREEDOM, and the Outdoors.

In closing, thank you for being a member of Hunter Nation.  Your support makes it possible for us to engage in the fight for the future of America, and for that, we are eternally grateful.  If you haven’t already, please be sure to purchase your chance to win one of our incredible Dream Hunts!

MERRY CHRISTMAS! May God continue to bless you, your family, our troops, and the amazing United States of America.
