Fourth of July Meme

Tagged by Toast with this patriotic meme.

1. Are you "proud to be an American"?

Of course I'm proud to be an American...where at least I know I'm free, and I won't forget the men who died, who gave that right to me and I'd gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today, 'cause there ain't no doubt I love this land.

2. Favorite Founding Father?

Probably have to go with Ben Franklin. He seems like a pretty interesting guy even without the founding father stuff.

3. Favorite president?

I'll go with Franklin Pierce, because we share the same birthday.

4. Biggest "Patriotic Moment"?

Probably some time in the 1992 Olympics watching the Dream Team.

5. Favorite patriotic song?

Living in America

6. Favorite American cuisine?

Pizza, and fuck anyone who says that isn't American.

7. Happiest political moment of your life?

I'll answer this one in about six and a half months.

8. Best fireworks display you've ever seen?

Probably something at Disney World, but that doesn't really fit the theme, I guess.

9. America's gift to the world?

Easy, football. And fuck them if they don't appreciate it.

10. Favorite Bill of Rights right?

The Second. Without it, all those gun nuts, who love to talk about their guns non stop, and look at pictures of guns as if they were porn, would have to keep those things to themselves, and then we wouldn't be able to so easily identify them as crazy people we should stay away from.

11. Favorite American Holiday?

I was born on Thanksgiving, so I'll go with that.

12. Favorite D.C. monument?

I don't know, but the knowledge that there will never be a Bush monument makes me pretty happy.

13. Your dream for America's future?

That we actually strive to uphold the American values that made this country great.
