Thought-provoking ruminations here!

Your use of quotation marks was a bit distracting--when they're used other than for dialogue, they seem to indicate sarcasm, and I'm not sure if that's what you intended in every case.

I thought your opening paragraphs were particularly strong.

Your care and concern for the USA is evident in your writing, and I appreciated reading your thoughts.

I am wondering, though, if you mean you are a natural-born citizen instead of a "naturalized" citizen. Since you earlier stated you were born here, I believe you mean the former.

Thank you for sharing this piece with us!
