I am an American first and a Californian second.
I'm a fair-weather state patriot. Right now, at noon (with windchill), it's -7°F. I don't become a MN fan until Spring arrives.
I'm a native born Texan, and as such, love my state, but I love my country just as much.

How about American, then Canadian? We are so close.
I'm a Canadian first...then an Ontarian.
