The original "patriots" actually were "terrorists" who not only didn't salute the flag, or cover their hearts during "God Save the King," but sought to overthrow that gov't and famously attacked an encamped enemy on Christmas night in Trenton.
Those guys were and are our model "patriots." Not conformists, patriots. They were people who decided what the country needed and worked for it THEIR WAY.
And it occurred to me that those "original patriots" were traitors
to their country of origin... now do you understand why we call democrats unpatriotic when they don't support the president while he defends our country? Quite simply, today's democrats are only fair weather patriots
That's just gibberish, Mike. You continue (erroneously) to think that you alone are the arbiter of what a "patriotic" cause is.
On the subject of our safety, for example, I think it far more "patriotic" to abandon the cowboy folly of "going it alone" and pursue a more cooperative international solution to keeping the planet safe. And, in fact, if the last presidential election proved nothing else, it was that most Americans agreed that we shouldn't keep trying to be the lone policeman in the world, not only because it does such violence to our ideals, but because it's simply doomed to fail.
And all of those voters were "unpatriotic," Mike?
