My Duty to my Country

"I believe in the United States of America as a government of the people, by the people, for the people, whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a Republic; a sovereign Nation of many sovereign States; a perfect Union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity, for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my Country to love it, to support its Constitution; to obey its laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies."


-- The American Creed by William Tyler Page

This is a fine sentiment and I agree with it as it applies to Canada a sovereign nation with a governor general (who is representative of the crown in this independent country of the commonwealth) and an elected government under a prime minister. I am prepared to pick up arms to keep it that way.
