Wingnuts like to tell us that liberals are not patriotic. We all know that’s a bunch of BS, but for some reason, too many voters buy into that meme.
Liberals love this country as much as conservatives do, no matter what Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh or others of their ilk might say.
Given those circumstances, it seems a let me point out some of the reasons I love the US:
The 1st Ammendment, 4th of July fireworks, abolitionsists, Abraham Lincoln, Apollo space program, Appalachia, apple pie, argument, Austin, TX, baseball, BBQ, the Bill of Rights, Bob Dylan, the blues, diners, California, Chicago, Chicago deep dish pizza, chili cookoffs, Cesar Chavez, civil rights marches, corn on the cob, Christmas in Indiana, Earl Warren, Elanor Roosevelt, Ellis Island, the Everglades, Family Guy, fireworks flappers, football, Franklin Delano Roosvelt, Frederick Douglas, freedom, George Washingon, Georgia peaches, the Grand Canyon, Habitat for Humanity, hamburgers, John Brown, I Love Lucy, immigration, inability to understand or enjoy soccer, jazz, John F.

What needs to be added to the list?
