What is a true patriot?
Originally posted by worldwatcher
I love my country and I support our good deeds and defend us when I feel a cause a justified, but I also speak up against things that I don't agree with in this country, so am I a patriot or not? I don't know.

The real worthwhile patriot is/are the one(s) who support and protect ideals rather than just flags or nations or even ideologies.
Law abiding liberty.

I'm not sure I could call myself a true patriot as I cannot claim to be overly proud regarding the history of my country, but I am still British.
Looking back in history, the British, in fact, more specifically, the English have caused a great deal of upset, conflict and destruction of which I would prefer to be disassociated with.
So, if you don't mind, whichever country you hail from, what is your take on being patriotic?
