Wow. Color me impressed!

Truer words have never been spoken... Here's an excerpt:
All Americans are enfranchised citizens, not subjects to a crown or property to a Lord. All Americans are co-owners in the greatest enterprise and longest running experiment in liberty the world has ever known. All Americans are my brothers under the flag.

I once had a guy from England tell me that what made his country great was how no matter how long I lived in England, I could never be English, but that he could come to the States and be an American right away. I told him he got it the wrong way around, that what he said is precisely why America is a great and growing country and his is not and will never be as long as he held that attitude.
