Our American Government

"There's an old story about how you can always tell whether a man is a native American. If he is, the story goes, he won't know the second verse of the Star-Spangled Banner. That may or may not be true, but it is shocking to note how many Americans aren't aware of some of the basic fundamentals about our country. Perhaps because of that fact, Representative Wright Patman of Texas has been answering questions about our government in his weekly newsletter to his constituents for nearly 25 years."
