Good ideas, thankfully, don’t just squirm away and die. The best of them take on a life of their own. This year’s good idea, one that has been in vogue for a while, but that is taking on heightened importance now, is the core nature of being an American. My focus is on freedom, brought to you courtesy of the United States Constitution. Patrick, the Paragraph Farmer, also sees in Americans a distinctly national character, defined by our beliefs — and by the things against which we stand. Do check it out because, as we observe in the White House a president who believes freedom is anathema and who, by his upbringing, lacks any understanding of the American character, it is more important than ever that we affirm what makes us us (or should I say what makes us U.S.?).
