One man’s love of his country can take him through a long journey.
This is especially true with Tony Amorose, a passionate American history teacher. Whenever he is talking about the United States, you can hear the strength in his voiceAs he talks to his students, he constantly reminds them how great the United States is. As he speaks about the country’s Founding Fathers, you can feel the vibe of respect he has for them and how thankful he is to be in a free country.
Dedication, loyalty and respect are highly prized to him. However, as the United States drifted away from his ideals, he decided to run for Congress to change the way the country is run. For example, Amorose said, “I want to repeal Obamacare, reform the tax code, and secure the U.S. borders.”
When asked about how Obama was running the country, Amorose replied, “Yes, I think Mr. Obama is trying to accomplish things that are not in the best interest of this country.” Amorose went on to say, “I want to persuade the president to make the U.S.A strong and proud as it used to be.”
However, he was passionate: he did not win the election, though he did receive 5,000 votes. Nevertheless, to many of his students that’s a good thing because, before they met him, they never knew history as well as they do now.
One man’s loss in Congress is Unis Middle School’s victory.
