The actor expounded on a familiar set of words, and reminded Americans of their country's greatness.

Feeling a bit jaded by American politics these days? It seems there’s so much divisiveness sometimes that one just wants to unplug.

A lot of people might have felt that way in the early 1970s, when Richard Nixon was under fire for the Watergate scandal. But in 1972, actor John Wayne recorded an album that reminded Americans of their country’s greatness.

It may seem corny now, but Wayne’s exposition of the Pledge of Allegiance is a great reminder of why we love America.
