PROTECTING OUR EARNED BENEFITS

Protecting our earned benefits so that seniors can retire with dignity and security

About Mary May

I grew up as the daughter of a career Navy man and a stay-at-home mom.  My parents taught me about work ethic, and the importance of community.  My three brothers taught me to stand up for myself, and to not be easily bossed around.

My family and I have lived here in the Spokane Valley for 11 years.  We love the natural beauty of the area, and the warmth of the community.  My children have grown up here, attending the public schools.  My oldest is now attending a local university, and my youngest is attending high school here in the valley.  

True patriotism isn’t simply about waving the American flag. And it’s not mostly about securing our borders from outsiders.

It’s about coming together for the common good.

Real patriotism is not cheap. It requires taking on a fair share of the burdens of keeping America going – being willing to pay taxes in full rather than seeking tax loopholes and squirreling away money abroad.

Patriotism is about preserving and protecting our democracy, not inundating it with big money and buying off politicians.

True patriots don’t hate the government of the United States. They’re proud of it. They may not like everything it does, and they justifiably worry when special interests gain too much power over it.
But true patriots work to improve our government, not destroy it.

Finally, patriots don’t pander to divisiveness. They don’t fuel racist or religious or ethnic divisions. They aren’t homophobic or sexist.

To the contrary, true patriots seek to confirm and strengthen the “we” in “we the people of the United States.”

— Robert Reich, 2015
