    "There's a big part of America that really believes that there is a war on terrorism, and that we need to finish up. So I thought it was beautiful the other day when Obama went to Afghanistan and got educated about Afghanistan and Iraq. He came back and said some really nice things. So as far as leadership and patriotism goes, I think it's really important that those things have to take place. And I think he's the best Democratic candidate we've had since Bill Clinton. And that's coming from a Democrat."

    I hate that word, patriotism, it means to follow blindly and has nothing to do with what being American is.

    That's what it means to you because you aren't patriotic.

    Patriotism means being willing to commit to something bigger than yourself, and to appreciate the sacrifice of the men and women who have given their lives to keep you free.

    Patriotism has everything to do with being American.

    *rae* Look up it's origins and roots. It's nothing to do with America and everything to do with being a slave.

    Here's a good explanation of what 'patriotism' is dong to our country. P&T explain it well.

    Having personally met Toby Keith, I can assure you that he's a giant douchebag and I wouldn't want anything to do with him.

    "Citizens by birth or choice, of a common country, that country has a right to concentrate your affections. The name of AMERICAN, which belongs to you, in your national capacity, must always exalt the just pride of Patriotism, more than any appellation derived from local discriminations. George Washington.


    George William Curtis:
    "A man's country is not a certain area of land, of mountains, rivers, and woods, but it is a principle and patriotism is loyalty to that principle."


    "The government is merely a servant -- merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is right and what is wrong, and decide who is a patriot and who isn't. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them." Mark Twain

    Want me to go on? someone can most assuredly be a patriot and love their country and if that is the foundation for what being an American for them is, then who are you to judge that? It seems the man our capitol is named after tends to disagree with you a little.

    On the Original topic of this thread, Toby Kieth in the article said he is a life long democrat . so this is shocking for what reason? Now if he has said he has never voted for a democrat in his life and is voting for Obama and I did read it three times and didn't see that anywhere, that would have been a pretty good surprise.
