My personal definition of the word 'patriot' would simply be one who believes in and follows the Constitution of the United States of America as
drafted by our Founding Fathers.
Anything beyond that is approaching propaganda.
Definition of PATRIOT : one who loves his or her country and supports its authority and interests
I am an American. I am a member of the human race. I think the sovereign rights of the individual should protected and defended with steadfast
determination. This is why I cannot be a patriot. The following is a perspective I found to be very interesting.
Very well written and argued link that you provided, thanks!
Like it mentioned, however... the head of tyranny in 1775 was in England, today it is here among us. And times back then were more civil than they are
now, I believe.
But people who believe such as you do, and as I do, are being systematically put into lists and databases for use by Federal LEO's under the umbrella
term of 'patriot', being guilty of spreading 'hate speech.'
And I have a very big problem with those labels and accusations.
