People talk about our Patriotic duty but few put a definition with it. After reading an article this morning and having a discussion with a friend, it occurred to me that I would like to at least try to define it. Recognize that it is MY definition and you may not agree. That’s O.K., America was founded on the principle of free speech and the freedom associated with it. So, here goes:
Patriotic Duty – To support the United States Constitution and our Bill of Rights. To vote for the candidate of my choice in any election, public or privately held (any time we participate in the voting process that is not for a public position). To support the rights of others as long as those rights don’t infringe on the rights of others. To believe in and support majority rule. To speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, be they in firmed or simply under the age of 18. To fight (if necessary) for these rights against any enemy that would seek to restrict our right to exist as we have agreed upon as a nation.
I understand that some (in fact many) will take issue with what I’ve said, again, that’s O.K. If you have a point of view why not add your voice to my own and comment below.
