to all americans and those who aspire to freedom. and while there are many different views and ideas shared here both for and against policies, persons, and concepts, I think it is important to remember that we all are passionate about the direction of our nation because we love it. regardless of the faults (which are many), they are outweighed by the fact we are free to discuss said faults. this country should be treated as a work in progress, and not as a final product. And this board is just one example of a forum from which seeds of change and improvement might just come.
