Patriots? Where?

  • Get teary-eyed over the "Stars and Stripes" and the national anthem.
  • Say things like "our government" and "my president".
  • Believe that "if we just elect the right people..."
  • Believe that the Constitution is the answer, if only it had been enforced.
  • Say "Love it or leave it".
  • Chant "USA, USA".
  • Believe the propaganda about the latest Enemy of America, whether economic or military or "terrorist".

  • Would have started shooting government employees by now.

Note: I do not consider myself a "patriot", and I am certainly NOT a "nationalist". Liberty is what matters, not where you find it. Or don't.
