Patriotism

If someone came up to me and asked me something along the lines of "Hey, where's your American pride? Where's your flag pin, and red, white and blue colors? You're no American, how are you a patriot?" I'd give him a simple answer:

"I'm still here."

Failing economy, weak dollar, subprime mortgage crisis, stretched military, lame duck president, rising gas prices, the "War on Terror", the "War on Drugs", the American Incarceration Machine, and the ignorance of our government as a whole.

As of today, I consider anyone who still lives here an American; a patriot.

Happy Independence Day.
