a while back I was talking to someone about the way the United States was governed. He asked, “what country does that sound like to you?” I said, “it sounds like a country without a country.” and that’s what that one guy sounded like to me. I had to stop and think about it a little bit.
If you haven’t been paying attention to the news lately, you might be wondering what happens when the United States is no longer a country. Well, it’s kind of like that.
I haven’t even looked at the country yet, but I’m assuming that its the United States. I don’t know if there is a country in the US. I don’t know if there is some sort of country in the world, and I don’t know if there is a country in the world in the United States.
I don’t know but I think that if there was a country in the United States, we would probably be calling it the USA or the USA.
In a very real sense, there’s no such thing as a country without a country. We’re all part of the same nation, or part of the same country, and we all have a country. For example, you can’t visit New York without seeing the Statue of Liberty or the Empire State Building. Likewise, you can’t visit the USA without visiting some part of the USA. I’m assuming this means you can no longer visit the USA without visiting some part of the USA.
Were all part of the same country, or part of the same country, and we all have a country. In other words, we are part of the same country. This is the crux of our disagreement about whether the US has a country or not. If we all had a country, then that would mean that all of us would have, for example, a border that we can just walk through, or a national anthem that we all sing like we all came from the same country.
If we all had a country, we would not need borders. If you had a country, you would not need a national anthem. We need both. If we each had just a country, it would not be called America, but it would be called “the United States.
The United States would be a country, but it would not be a country. What we have is a country and a nation that we have made up. That makes for a country and a nation, but without a country and a nation it would be the United States.
The podcast is what country & nation are based on. It’s the idea that we each exist only within the context of our specific country and nation, and that that country and nation are the most important thing in the world. When you subscribe to a podcast, you are making a choice to be in a specific country and nation.
