- Alan 7/4/07: "The best way to celebrate the 4th of July is to call us to uphold our ideals. We need to re-read the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights. We must remind ourselves of the ways we fall short by electing a president who disdains human rights and terrorizes other countries. It is un-American to say 'I don't want to know what the CIA does.' Our leaders are our servants. That is the American way."
