    In the Name of Patriotism (Who are the Patriots?)

    For some, patriotism is “the last refuge of a scoundrel.” For others, it means dissent against a government’s abuse of the people’s rights.

    Perhaps some of our conservative members might vote this guy as their favorite patriot: Byron “Low Tax” Looper. Mr. Looper had his middle name officially changed to "Low Tax" in an effort to bolster his Republican conservative status. He then proceeded to murder the guy running against him.

    Now that's a patriot!

    If being American means sticking out my chest and bragging about how great my nation, my ideas and my culture is, then Call me the un-American.

    I criticize and protest some of the actions of my nation and the people inside it. I criticize my ideas and my culture. I even criticize the Constitutional Republic that our forefathers created.

    If what I described is Americanism, and what I do is Un-american Then I shall happily die an Un-American. I am to full of flaws to blind myself to them.

    Even the word Patriot has been co-opted. There is a book on my shelf, "The True Patriot", that proves the point on the left side, but the Reps do the same thing playing right into the hands of those who argue via relativism. Just another burr in the saddle of the average man, breaking down what he believes in, right or wrong, which, ironically, is relative.
