It's an odd question. You might quickly answer it means you care about freedom and democracy. You might claim it means you care about free markets or Judeo-Christian values.
But I don't think any of that is correct. Frankly, I have a hard time putting my finger on it as well. I took the time to ask a few people about it this weekend and none of them could give me a concise answer either.
I know what it USED to mean to be an American and I know what many in our country believe today. But we are a wide and diverse nation. Pinning down what it means to be an American today is complex and nearly impossible.
So I thought I'd take some time to discuss what I think it SHOULD mean to be an American. I hope you find it valuable when deciding for yourself what kind of country we want to have.
