What does it mean to be a citizen? This is the take-home message I liked best from President Obama’s speech tonight. I was in the hall, saw the confetti, held the signs, felt the mood of the crowd. What does it mean to be a citizen?
This is a profound question to ask Americans at this moment. What does it mean to be a citizen? Our president said tonight that being a citizen means both rights and responsibilities. It’s not about the rugged individualism that is core to our national identity; it’s about a commitment to community, to country, to civilization. When we join together, we make change. We solve problems. We create a better world.
Or you can be own your own, protecting your liberty.
It’s a choice election.
