What have YOU done to help the country, "Real American" Dave??

“If you can read this, thank a teacher,” reads a popular bumper sticker, with some versions adding: “If you can read it in English, thank a veteran.”

After millions of Americans went to the voting booth last Tuesday to exercise one of their most cherished rights, we should pause and remember those who help make it possible. Simply having rights isn’t enough. They must be defended, often at great personal cost. And it’s the members of our armed forces, past and present, who put their lives on the line every day to do just that.

How fitting, then, that Election Day...
