"Since when have we Americans been expected to bow submissively to authority and speak with awe and reverence to those who represent us?" William O. Douglass, US Supreme Court Justice
Justice Douglass' words remind us that we are Americans. Being an American means quite a bit, the most important of which is that we are free men and women - there is no nobility or King here. Too often our political class acts like its entitled to lord over us. It is just the opposite - the government is intended to serve the people - the government is the servant of the people, not the other way around. Be vigilant, stand tall, stand for freedom.
