"There is little value in insuring the survival

of our nation if our traditions do not survive with it.

And there is very grave danger that an announced need

for increased security will be seized upon

by those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits

of official censorship and concealment."

-- John F. Kennedy

(1917-1963) 35th US President

"The high office of the President has been used to foment

a plot to destroy the American's freedom and before I leave office,

I must inform the citizen of this plight."

"And so, my fellow Americans:

Ask not what your country can do for you --

ask what you can do for your country.

My fellow citizens of the world:

Ask not what America will do for you,

but what together we can do for the freedom of man."

This is perhaps one of my favorite quotes of all time. IMHO, it really demonstrates what it means to be a citizen of my country.
