I'm going to agree...to a certain extent.
We all want a solid foundation. We all want to be fiscally responsible. We all want a Nation that is sound, fair and respected. We want to grow
wealth and we want opportunity to abound for all that are a part of what we are building.
I think we disagree as a nation on how to achieve our dreams. I think we have a lot of work to do to find some common ground.
I really, really think that as a nation, we need to go back to our roots and embrace certain ideals while we reject revisionist history. I think that
we rightfully admire our Founding Fathers but we have lost sight of what they envisioned for our nation.
You might think it strange but I've always been rather uncomfortable with the idea of "I'm proud to be an American." I've always felt that I owe
thanks, that maybe I'm just plain lucky to be an American. I've not served my country but I've reaped the rewards of being a citizen. Pride is
something that should be earned, maybe like respect?
I've also always felt stuck in the middle with my feelings. I'm DAR on my dad's side and first generation American on my mom's side.
I don't think that my vote doesn't matter. I've voted since I was 18 and I'll vote until the day that I pass. I'll vote for whoever I feel best
represents what I want my America to be.
