In our society we have learned to see patriots are those that have fought and die for their country. But what is actually the definition of an American patriot. I have never fought in wars and I am against my government’s policies, for many that is not very patriotic.
But I defend my constitution and will have no problem dying for my nation if we ever get invaded by a foreign forces and we are forced to fight against it. What is your own definition of been an American patriot and please share it with us. Edited by Don W]

No patriotism like the path is an indefinable...it is rooted in the love of home, in caring for your fellow citizens and behaving as a good citizen, even to the point of disagreeing with your government or protesting the wrongs done in our name as it also means a willingness to fight and die for your home.
For me, while I love my country, I love my planet more....nations are an artifical construct, earth is our ultimate home, and that home includes every nation and nationality. We screw this place up we are just plain out of luck.
