Even so, I'd like to feel the assurance (and satisfaction) that my country will continue to be great, and prosperous, long, long after I'm gone. I do care about that. Although if I had kids, I probably would care a lot more than I currently do, because I'd have a personal stake in the future.

Yes - exactly. If you had a grandchild named Merri-Kat who loved raspberries and tomatoes, you'd probably have a more connected stake in the future. You have a stake - it's just not so personal.
