What is an American? Conclusion

The Conclusion. 

I love America more than any other country in this world; and, exactly for this reason, I insist on the right to criticize her perpetually.  James Baldwin

What is the essence of America?  Finding and maintaining that perfect, delicate balance between freedom "to" and freedom "from."  Marilyn vos Savant, in Parade

There is nothing wrong with America that cannot be cured by what is right with America.  William J. Clinton

Some Americans need hyphens in their names, because only part of them has come over; but when the whole man has come over, heart and thought and all, the hyphen drops of its own weight out of his name.  Woodrow Wilson
