Are some people "too patriotic"? (UQ)
Adolf Hitler says, NO! There is no such thing as being too patriotic.
Nationalism is bad? I would have to disagree... I can think of so many reasons nationalism is helpful to society
America is sure full if simpletons.
"Too patriotic" is nationalism and nationalism is a bad think. It brought Germany the Nazi Party.
abolitionist@ that is the dumbest response you could come up with. You need to do more " real" research your wonderful president. You folks who doesn't want to believe the things that have been exposed about O you reflect by bad mouthing the people who have taken the time to research the accusations
And you are disrespectful! That's pretty obnoxious !
I find you very judgmental and disrespectful. Being patriotic is simple I believe in our country! If you don't move!
You are either proud to live in America or not! It is simple
For our flag and pride in being a American. These posters who bad mouth our flag our God and the pride that many people feel in this country you have options MOVE TO ANOTHER COUNTRY! I am proud to be America God Bless America! Deal with it!
Hi Cowboy! It sad that you have ignorant people who doesn't care about our country only want our country will "give" them. Selfishness is want makes up a small group of people in this country. They are disrespectful to our flag our freedoms and our personal choices. Continue to be proud and fight
Working in China, yes.. Definitely. Same in the US
Their jot "over-patriotic". Some people are jus passionate about the country. I think it would be scarier to have a majority who hates your country than a majority of over passionate people.
It's possible to be blinded to patriotism. Everybody and every country makes mistakes. If you, and 55% of Americans, have got your head too far up our flag's ass to see that we're not an exception to this rule we're screwed.
A friend of mine wears USA under shirts and USA underpants... You get the idea
Only black and white
And no silly shades of gray
Simple way to live
Honestly, that's not an attack. It's really how I think you see your world. Most of us have to think about all sides of an issue, but for you, there are only two sides - good and bad. It's limiting, but it is a lot easier. Saves painful thought processes.
I'm jealous of you, cowboy! It must be easy and comfortable to live in a world, that is so black and white. No need to analyze subtle differences; no shades of gray. There are only bad guys and good guys - no imperfect human beings, doing their best and making mistakes.
It's called Nationalism and its alive and well in the old US of A.
Blind patriotism is not patriotism. Believing we are a terrible country is pure stupidity
Yes ... and if you can write a better haiku for your side, I'll let you win! *chuckle*
All you have to do is look and see that 72 percent of Democrats said yes.
Its really hard to defend such an anti-American so you attack me. I get it. Thanks.
@whoami So instead of a serious answer I get this? Ok. That makes sense...
A haiku for this discussion:
Hated the United States
cowboy waves flag! ... Huh?
Virgil, you are hardly a patriot just because you insult a military wife sharing her story because she's a liberal. You are a disgrace to fellow Americans.
It depends on what our personal perception is of what we feel patriotism to be.
Most people that say they're patriotic are just obnoxiously loud idiots.
Some patriots are funny. "God loves america the most!"
What about the rest of the world? Arent they gods children too?
Between learning Islam in Indonesia being mentored by a Communist Frank Marshall Davis working with and having campaign parties in a terrorist's (William Ayers) living room Where did Barrack Hussein Obama or Barry Soetoro learn about American patriotism? Seriously. Where?
@whoami I said it. I don't know how you cant see that barrack Hussein Obama hates America but ok.
How is either party communists when their both controller by banks and corporations? You don't know sh!t, rush Limbaugh has you living in his pill induced reality and you can't even think for yourself.
Cowboy, don't put words in my mouth (or on my keyboard). I did not say Obama hates the United States. I said I don't support him for President.
And that's funny. I think the same thing about you Commies. Stupid sheep.
@Abolitionist I didn't say "if".
If Obama hates America then George Bush is an enemy of the state cause he was a lot worse than Obama. Your a sheep, you listen to words and don't look at action. Your so easy to manipulate its pathetic.
@whoami Liberals can't even stand the American flag. Let alone the confederate flag. I'm not trying to change your mind. If you don't get it its not my problem.
@whoami Good for you! Barrack Hussein Obama obvisouly hates America. And wouldn't even fly the American flag if he could get away with it.
Never mind ... I give up. If you think it is ok, even patriotic to fly the confederate flag, you are hopeless. Moving on.
@whoami That's right. The government is here to serve you...
Actually, I don't like Obama either. It may surprise you to know that I agree with you on that.
This has nothing to do with being afraid. The confederates were definitely NOT loyal to the United States. You are quite the hypocrite, if you support them.
@whoami Call them whatever you want. Still doesn't change my point for the present regime.
The leaders of the Confederacy were hardly patriots. You could even call them traitors to the United States.
@whoami I said that we Americans aren't afraid. And never will be.
Oops! Ignore that last post ... I hit submit by accident, while trying to edit.
The Confederacy was quite a bit more than not being afraid of the government. It was an act of open defiance against the United States!
The Confederacy was a "bit" more than "not being afraid" of the givernment. an act of defiance against the United States
The confederates only supported states rights when it served their interest. They applauded the fugitive shave act and the Supreme Court ruling that blank ppl have no rights a white man is bound to respect, both of them were a violation of states rights. Read a little more.
@whoami Good I'm glad. Then you'll understand. Yes. To always remind those in the government that we're not afraid of them.
