“As Americans, we believe we are endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights – rights that no man or government can take away…
“But we also believe in something called citizenship – a word at the very heart of our founding, at the very essence of our democracy; the idea that this country only works when we accept certain obligations to one another, and to future generations.”
