    Constitution and what it stands for versus, say being ruled by an oil barron king or a religious leader, then yes, I AM proud to be an American.  Because I am luck enough to have been born on a "piece of property" that offers the promise of individual liberty and representative government.  

    At the end of the day, it is our system that gives or denies the right to that individual dignity.  

    No one can terrorize a whole nation, unless we are all his accomplices. - Edward R. Murrow
