Bruce Springsteen: an American patriot???
It's only a brainless savage who could associate his views as patriotic. They aren't patriotic to this country, but they are very patriotic to England or any of the socialist countries that preach "responsibility" to others, self-sacrifice as a virtue and refuse to let Man exist for his own sake.
Responsibility, Bruce? To whom? Enforced by whom? For how long?
The end result of this doctrine is a Dead End: Russia. Here in America, there exists no such "responsibility" but there are three things granted in the Constitution that can be found in the history book of any 12-year-old student: life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
Your life. Your happiness; pursue them now while you still have a chance.
