Thank you SOO MUCH WyrdeOne!

This is the best post I have read on ATS all week.

I was astonished when I first found out about the "prejudice wedge" instituted in jamestown to divide those who did the work against eachother.

Thanks for bring these points to light and detailing what it means to be a Patriot.

at heart, i believe that the united states is a great nation, that we are a nation of destiny. i believe we are an example and a beacon for the rest of the world. i believe that, although americans may squabble amongst themselves over details, a true patriot wants what is best for his nation in the long run. i believe in a united world with the united states taking the leadership position.

Believe in whatever you want, even in your PNAC Bull#.
This will never happen, your country is going down.

"I am a patriot to my country".... sounds familiar doesn't it..

Lets look at what this really means...

The "country" to which the declared patriotism applies to is the area of land the present and past governments/rulers have proclaimed as theirs.. They are merely artificial man-made borders that rulers have used throughout man's history to incite a false sense of security within its subjects. Anything man-made is subject to change.

IMHO, being a patriot should really be used to declare our sense of loyalty and duty to the [whole] planet we live on, rather than to the small plots of real-estate that we have been conditioned to believing we 'own' as nation.

As long as these man-made borders exists, we will always be kept under the control of the few and our true potential to expand as an enlightened race will always be kept in check by the few.

No, I have never nor will I ever swear alliegence to any nation or person.

5000 years of history show us what nationalism does.

I don't believe the U.S. today is remotely like what our forefathers created and they would be ashamed of it and us.

So people frequently tell me I should leave if I don't like it. I've lived my entire life less than 5 miles from the place of my birth. Why should I leave just because a hostile enemy government happens to be occupying my homeland?

So there it is. From an American's perspective I'm a traitor, but I will never act against the government. For who am I to tell others how THEY should live.
