Patriotic Quotes. I thought after all this US bashing we all could use some good ol'e fashioned uplifting quotes to reel things in a bit. Feel free to move this thread, but I think this is a good home for it..

"Do not criticize your government when out of the country. Never cease to do so when at home."
Winston Churchill (1874 - 1965)

"Feeling good about government is like looking on the bright side of any catastrophe. When you quit looking on the bright side, the catastrophe is still there."
P. J. O\'Rourke (1947 - ____)

"Good government is no substitute for self-government."
Mahatma Gandhi (1869 - 1948)

"A government is like fire, a handy servant, but a dangerous master."
George Washington (1826 - 1877)

"A government that is big enough to give you all you want is big enough to take it all away"
Barry Goldwater (1909 - 1998)

"A patriot must always be ready to defend his country against his government."
Edward Abbey (1927 - 1989)

"This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can excercise their constitutional right of amending it, or excercise their revolutionary right to overthrow it."
-Abraham Lincoln

Im sure there are thousands more. Anybody else have some
