The Rolling Log; How America Became Great
July 11, 2018
When the early settlers and colonists arrived in America, life was very difficult. They had to clear the land using hand tools, build their own houses, produce all of their own food, and make their own clothing.
There is an old American Tradition that dates back to the early settlers here in America. In fact, I can’t say for sure but I suspect it may have been a carbon copy of sorts how the Native Americans treated the first European settlers that arrived here on the shores of the North American Continent a few centuries ago.
It (the term rolling log) has sense been hijacked and is now generally known to people as a political term called Rolling Log Legislation meaning the trading off of favors and exchanges of votes for various bills and legislation. Many of which are not always in the best interest of our nation and people.
The Original Rolling Log was not a swap of favors and votes for political and personal gain, but rather a matter of survival; new friends and neighbors helping each other.
When new settlers landed in the new world, the people of the existing settlements banded together and all helped the newly arrived colonist’s build homes, taught them the necessities they needed to survive in this new hostile and unsettled continent. They helped them with livestock and other things they would need to farm, fish, hunt, chop trees to build homes ect.
The people of the settlements helped the new settlers to survive and adapt to the new world, helped them become part of the community. It was a matter of survival. And by doing so it helped the settlements become stronger communities. And that is the story of what is known as The Rolling Log.
It was about people helping people to live prosper and survive. Communities working together, or they perished.
Here at Bradford LifeStyles we’re trying to mimic that rolling log example and that is why we are building a site with only American made products from American companies. Charity begins at home.
We hope our visitors will always find what they are looking for; if not with us than through our All American Menu listing of American businesses.
We’ve already begun inserting names and links to the websites of several American companies for our site’s visitors and shoppers, as a free service to our visitors and we will continue working on that and adding more and more as we move forward and grow.
It’s our way of contributing to the rolling log system. No matter what your political views or feeling might be We as Americans need to remember…
It was “WE THE PEOPLE THAT MADE AMERICA GREAT” NOT OUR POLOTICIANS OR LEADERS. THE TIME FOR DIVISSION IS OVER AND IT’S TIME WE STAND AS ONE PEOPLE, AMERICAN PEOPLE… INDIVISABLE.
A HOUSE DIVIDED CAN NOT STAND.
We hope you all had a wonderful and blessed Independence Day celebration with your family, friends and neighbors from Bradford LifeStyles.
