"I'm proud to be an American...


...where at least I know I'm free.
And I won't forget the men who died
and gave that right to me.

And I'll gladly stand up next to you
and defend her still today.

There ain't no doubt I love this land.
God Bless the USA."
Lee Greenwood

I like to see a man proud
of the place in which he lives.
I like to see man who lives so that
the place he lives is proud of him.
Abraham Lincoln

Patriotism is not short, frenzied outbursts of emotion,
but the tranquil, steady dedication of a lifetime.
Adlai Stevens

This nation will remain the home of the free
only as long as it is the home of the brave.
Elmer Davis

This country will not be a good place
for any of us to live in
unless it is a good place
for all of us to live in.
Teddy Roosevelt

We should never forget that men
first crossed the Atlantic
not to find soil for their plows,
but liberty for their souls.
Robert J. McCracken

and on a lighter note.....

A real patriot is the fellow
who gets a parking ticket
and rejoices that the system is working.
Bill Vaughan

Happy 4th of July!
