Ashamed to be an American?

After spending 10 days in London with friends who were outspoken about their disdain for President Bush's policies, Berns Rothchild came home wishing she had a way to show the world she didn't vote for him.

"I sort of felt ashamed, and didn't really want to be associated with being an American," said Rothchild, who lives in New York City and voted for John Kerry.

Could it be that you are not, at heart, an American? Your thoughts and values are not even close to those of the founding fathers of this nation. America was founded on freedom, personal responsibility, freedom of religion, not freedom from religion (and the founders had a strong and outspoken faith in God), the sanctity of human life and small government (a Republic, not a democracy).

Face reality and stop trying to make America over into your image, because you can't change the foundation without destroying the house.

But then again, what you want is more important than anything else, isn't it?
