Before we start with all this 4th of July stuff...

I know, this is the weekend when we pay lip service to our love for our country, while downing as many hotdogs as we can muster.

But before you start waving the flag around, answer these questions?

When was the last time you voted?

When was the last time you wrote to/called your Congressman. Or Mayor. Or President?

When was the last time you actually researched a political position...instead of reying on talk hosts, commentators, or even passed-on e-mails?

When was the last time you said something positive about public figure you disagreeed with poltically?

When was the last time you said something negative about public figure you agreeed with poltically?

When was the last time you bought a gift card from a restaurant to a homeless person?

When was the last time you did a kindness for an undocumented visitor?

When was the last time you actually sought to understand another fait other than yours?

When was the last time you enjoyed a movie/song/tv show featuring an person whose politics were different than yours?

When was the last time you actually saluted the flag as you passed it by.

There are a lot more, but you get the picture.

It seems there's a lot of people who pledge patriotism....but many are just Americans in Name Only. Are you one?

Happy 4th, buddy.
