Your Country: The people and lands you live in, and the ideals which you agree are important to human flourishing.
Your Government: A group of people responsible for protecting the people, lands and ideals which you agree are important for human flourishing.
You can have a great country and have a crappy government. I’ve never seen a crappy country with a good government though (or a good government that last).

I feel like we really need to stop with the left/right paradigm and Republicans/Democrats narrative.
