I confidently trust that the American people will prove themselves too wise not detect the false pride or the dangerous ambitions or selfish schemes which so often hide themselves under that deceptive cry of mock patriotism - "Our country, right or wrong!". They will not fail to recognize that our dignity, our free institutions and peace and welfare of this and coming generations of Americans will be secure only as we cling to the watchword of true patriotis, "Our country - when right to be kept right; when wrong to be put right."

                             Senator Carl Schrzn Chicago, Illinois, October 17, 1899

 ( This quote was found in a small book - True Patriot - written by Eric Liu and Nick Hanauer - worth reading )
