I respected my parents and elders as a youth.
I respected my grandparents.
I respected my neighbors and supported my community.
I respected and honored my teachers.
I promoted accountability and responsibility despite the personal gain and wealth I could have acquired by ignoring it.
I sacrifice personal time to help others less fortunate.
I monitor the elderly and offer material assistance, words of encouragement when material assistance will not suffice.
I volunteer time and money to help those less fortunate.
Whats the point?
The point is is that as a youth I learned that this IS price that must be paid to secure a free and stable family / society.
To work hard, save, and pass down these essential truths.
Politicians and Hollywood will not change this about me despite their daily attempts to do so.
All that, and a buck-fifty, will get you a cup of coffee...but it won't be at a table at the Ritz.

How are you different from the rest of us, who perform the same services, gratis, on a daily basis?

Just checking...since some of us don't have US birth certificates, drivers licenses, social security numbers, or military ID??

Now, just so we know who we're talking to here - I'm a liberal, more Blue Dog than far left.

And you?
I'm sure you're a respectable fella but don't you find that labeling yourself only serves your best interests?

For the record, I'm a citizen.

That's it.

I desire everyone to share in my dreams and make it my goal to help them accomplish theirs.

Oh, and one other question - which do you prefer: Lies My Teacher Told Me or A People's History of the United States?
According to which source?

Media or Standard Reading Requirements (Gov)

Quite frankly, I'm not really sure anymore.

Please don't understand my not hating someone as an endorsement.

Obama has no more power or influence than the oligarchy will allow. Those with the real intelligencia do not want peace let alone patriotism.

Which begs the question, What is Patriotism?

Is Mr. Willie a patriot?
Is Mr. Catcher a patriot?
Are you a patriot?
Am I?

Good question.
Probably very little, if in fact you are performing those very same services gratis.

Got John Coltrane going and life is good. Shout out to the patriots cleaning up the national mall as I type. Don't think they want any recognition just a small way to say thankful to be here.

Why are you talking about sources?

I asked YOU which of the two books you preferred. Seems a simple enough question...

Sorry, apparently these were actual books? I haven't read them. I thought your were generalizing.

I've heard enough discussion concerning those particular topics and others which leave me even further in doubt concerning actual truths.

Back to you, which book do you agree with?

I don't 'hate' Obama either - he's not worth the energy, and he's not really the problem. Our apathy is. Only about 15% of eligible voters even bother. Of that 15%, less than half bother to fully inform ourselves of the issues, and rely solely on 'mass media' for information.

Am I a Patriot? Well, I haven't given my life for my country, even metaphorically, since my priorities include feeding, clothing, and sheltering my family, before running for office, or joining the military...so maybe not?

Can't answer whether you are or not.

But I think the others you mentioned, think they are. JMO

More inclined to Lies My Teacher Told Me, because the further into the 20th century you get in A People's History the more you get the impression that the author did some postgraduate work somewhere south of St. Petersburgh - the one in Russia, not Florida.

I'm a little surprised you haven't heard of either book.

As in just don't care or could care less?

I see it more as losing faith. Faith in a fair an equitable system of governance. Add to that the outright lies and corruption and you have THE predictable level of present participation.

It seems as those who participate feel they know what's best based on the data only to sadly find out later they were mistaken. I believe the future numbers will reflect the participation of those with special interests and not reflect what is in the best interest of all. Granted, this also begs the question, What is in the best interest of all?

So many authors simply provide tit-for-tat and we all get enough of that.

Good to know. I could have taken it either way.

I responded that I considered myself a Citizen in reply to your identifying yourself as a Blue Dog.

Was it because I didn't associate myself with any particular group that you felt my reply was without substance?

I capitalized Citizen this time if that makes a difference.
