He's among the few patriots left willing to take the risk. What we need to do is redefine what patriotism means. Because it seems that we often
confuse Nationalism for Patriotism, and they are more certainly not the same thing.
Nationalism is shallow, a tool for the government through propaganda campaigns. It is a false ideal meant to create sheep.
Patriotism is love one's land and wish to protect it. It is men and women who fight for it under oath or not, in combat or in the court room, on the
streets, or in Congress. An American patriot knows and understands the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. Our history isn't perfect,
but it isn't called the American Experiment for no reason. We are meant to perfect it, but not by destroying the pillars of freedom, the only
supports that kept this nation great for so long. But by promoting them, and demanding that our government promote, protect, and PRACTICE these
principles, and the Rights of the people HERE and abroad.
Men like Schiff know this. But few step up to the plate.
I hope he wins.
