As Benjamin Franklin said:
“Those who give up liberty for security deserve neither.”
It’s a tough time to be a U.S. citizen. Americans are a patriotic people. What does it mean to be a patriot? Can you be a U.S. patriot and still renounce your U.S. citizenship? We are returning to 1776 – the debate between the Loyalists and The Patriots – does the true patriot stay or renounce U.S. citizenship?
I am patriotic. I am a patriotic Canadian–this is where my family and friends are, and I will die, if necessary, protecting them.
