I believe in the United States of America as a government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice, and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes.
I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its constitution; to obey its laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies.
My wife and I were listening to the radio the other day, a call-in show that was talking about an upswing in in-migration into our state in the last couple of years. The host asked people to call in if they had recently moved from another state and tell about their experience. Of the four or five people that called in, all had recently left California, and all for pretty much the same reasons. You can guess – taxes, schools, taxes, crime, taxes, and general deterioration. Our state is one of the light green ones in the map above.
