When we hear this song thoughts of God, patriotism, and American ideals run through our mind, but is that what the video is depicting?
Unfortunately no... What the video actually depicts is an American family losing their home, but in spite of it they are clinging to the ideals of America. Those ideals being freedom - hope - family - and founding principles, all the while having to deal with the fact that their farm is up for public auction. (view title image above)

Does the video suggest a problem? I think it does - a problem with American priorities - and what's truly important.
Through symbolism we see a woman wearing a dress with a white bow over her heart - is this the answer?

A new perspective?
Watch the video and see for yourself...
