So tell me on this July 4th, what are you fighting for?
You’re here at Political⚡Charge because while you’re not entirely happy about the state of your country, you’re not content to just live with it — you want to make it better. Working to improve your country seems very patriotic to me.
Mark Twain on patriotism:
Patriotism is supporting your country all the time, and your government when it deserves it.
And President Obama:
We, the People, recognize that we have responsibilities as well as rights; that our destinies are bound together; that a freedom which only asks what’s in it for me, a freedom without a commitment to others, a freedom without love or charity or duty or patriotism, is unworthy of our founding ideals, and those who died in their defense.
What would your quote be?
