I too, grew up as you did. I was proud to pledge allegiance to my country and I still tear up when I hear the Star Spangled Banner. I have always thought then, as I do now that this is, and always will be the greatest country in the world. The country has changed considerably even since the Reagan days, but I think there are still many like us who love our country and would fight to see it restored to its former glory. We have nothing to apoligize for. We just need people in office who know right from wrong and have this country's best interests at heart-not their own.
