What Can You Do For Your Country?

John F. Kennedy said these famous words:

"Ask not what your country can do for you...ask what you can do for your country."

So I have a query that I would like to address to all my Facebook friends, indeed, the entire country.

Does "asking what you can do for your country" include upholding all aspects and all parts of the Constitution and Bill of Rights,even those you don't agree with, and not just upholding and protecting those selective parts we agree with, ignoring and subverting those parts we find irritating and inconvenient, or dare I say "incompatible" with or "impractical" in the times we live in?  Does that include defending the very principles of freedom, natural and civil rights, and liberty that "our" country was founded upon, no matter the situation and time period?

I most definitely and resoundingly declare YES, that is doing something for your country.  But what say you?
