Nader's Independence day memories

Since I gave Mike Gravel yesterday's thoughts on Independence day, I thought today I would share a message from Ralph Nader about Independence day. ...

One day when I was about eight years old, my mother tossed one of her frequent "out of the blue" questions at me:

"Ralph, do you love your country?"

"Yes, mother," I said, wondering where she was going with this.

"Well, I hope when you grow up, you'll work hard to make it more lovable."
