Nope I'm not patriotic. Personally i think our government completely ruins America and so does our president. I want to move out of this country. I'm with blue_rebel about writing a whole book about it.
A white rose no longer alone
I know who's heart it is to represent
I didn't pick it, but i let it grow
For he's the one that's heaven sent. : I love you, my White Rose.: The Poop Forums
You know, I figure that if I were the leader of a country, I'd want to be proud of the country's people. But with all of you going on and on about how much you resent your countries... well, geez, that's exactly why America has nothing to be proud of! That's why every other country in the world can't be proud of itself, because all their citizens are turning against them!
So, yeah, like I said, there are plenty of things I'd like to change about my country, but there are a lot of things I'm for too.
The attitude says more about you then your country. A perfect country does not exist because people are not perfect. If you want to hate then you will never have any trouble finding something to hate. Patriotism, on the other hand, is the opposite of hate and just like any relationship you accept those faults and try and make them stronger inspite of them.
I wouldn't go as far as saying that patriotism is the opposite of hate (it has been used to sprout hate more than once) but a real patriot would indeed be able to see the good and the bad sides of his/her country.
Being a patriot is a noble thing yes.Yet u cannot b certain if ppl r patriot if u know them by nature/reputaion n not in person becoz they can lie bout it.
