Somehow our Founding Fathers took the best of historical experiments in government and crafted the governance of our republic in ways that work. Although our system of government can engender divisiveness, the ever-adjusting balance of power allows us the freedom as a society to take our ideas and run with them. We are just beginning to see the splendid fruits of galactic amounts of information in the hands of multitudes who care to click on it and create the new and good.
In short, I love being an American. I realize I have a part in the most significant experiments in liberty and justice. I want to take advantage of my good fortune, and I want to play my part well.
