A patriot is a person who "loves and loyally supports his country." After the long thread at Arizona Eighth, I realized that what upsets me the most about these discussions is that Bush/Cheny and the right wing gasbags in the media have so effectively distorted the distinction between what is your country and what is your government. There is currently a government in power that I did not vote for and that I do not support. The Bush Regime is not my country. My country is the land, the people who live here, and the democratic principles upon which the nation was founded. My country is not George Bush and his failed foreign policy.

We need to get back to a place where we understand this and stop calling each other names.

Of course, why would the right wing gasbags want to do that? What they really want to do is to keep people away from real news and real information. And they do it so well.
