Are you patriotic?




Whats doe it mean to be patriotic. No, I'm not talking about waving a flag,thumping a bible..and tell everyone around you(much to our annoyance) how great this country is. This is what it mean to be patriotic to me. Pointing out we have problems. Real problems that are not going away by praying to your "god". Problem that we the people have to fix. Everyone in this country has a right to voice their concern. Because you are gay does not mean you have less civil liberties then me. Because you don't believe in a "god" that you don't have a right to criticze organized religion. One of the founding principles of this country is "we the people". Not the we the corporate conglomerate, Special interest group,etc. As American I feel that NO one should have to go with out. Be it heatlh care,higher education,food and housing. Giving big tax breaks to the up one percent,while expecting the rest of us to pick up the slack. Cutting social programs so we can waste billions on military hardware that doesn't really work(I drove a Bradley in the army..just ask me about it). I feel as American it is your duty to vote. It's our voice and a birth right. Something they haven't taking away from us yet. We as the people should be mad...I mean really mad. Of the course this country is taking. It's not for the benefit of all of us....just for the few. It's time to stop this madness while we still have a country,world to save. The similarities between Bush and Hitler are numerous. That it scares me. We have problem...that we can fix.

Well said Bob!
It might come down to "We the People" taking back our country, by force if necessary!

You know Bob....When I was growing up, I never thought about religion or politics. Now that I'm older I see how religion affects our lives. It creeps into politics, so, I have to have an interest in both. I'm still learning as I go. I watched that video of Naomi Wolf twice, once by myself and once with Brian. No matter how many times I watch it, it's still scary.

There's a difference between the two. Hitler was a great orator, while Bush stammers and falls all over in speeches.
