H.L. Mencken (Letter to Upton Sinclair, October 14, 1917)
This is how I feel. My parents risked everything for the American dream and now that I am here, now that I feel in my heart I am an American, it hurts-ANGERS- to see the selfish acts of some ruining the immense potential the country has. I criticize the actions of this government because I think we can do better, that the American people deserve better. NOT because I don’t love this country, actually I do it because I do.
