“Happy birthday America, as we celebrate our independence today, as we celebrate our birth as a nation, the day that kickstarted a revolution to gain our sovereignty,” said the 51-year-old star.
“Let’s admit this last year’s trip around the sun was another head scratcher, but let’s also remember that we are babies – as a country we are basically going through puberty in comparison to other countries’ timelines – and we’re going to get the growing pains,” he continued. “And we are going through growing pains, this is not an excuse to say, this is just a reality.”
Emphasizing the need for harmony, McConaughey went on, “We got to keep realizing that we’re a place where our individual perspectives and desires need to be appreciative and supportive of our collective responsibilities as Americans – hence the United States of America.”
He added, “We’re all in this together and if you don’t purchase that, move on, go somewhere else.”
