Comment: No Lysiandad, "patriot" is not too strong a word at all.

(See in situ)

No Lysiandad, "patriot" is not too strong a word at all.

If every American thought as you do, we would have held our politicians to their oaths to uphold our Constitution - throughout our history and right to the present congress and executive.

Then we would not have involved ourselves in endless wars ever since that rat Woodrow Wilson got us into WWI.

In fact it is exactly your ideals which MAKES us patriots.

Marching off to wars NOT designed to defend us, but to enrich the profiteers of war does not automatically a patriot make.

This idea was reinforced when so many great soldiers (like Adam Kokesh and Zak Carter) came back from the middle east and spoke out about the folly of our foreign interventions, adverturisims and downright atrocities.

In the end, they knew it wasn't about defending the United States.

I've said it before; The book "The Creature From Jekyll Island" is a must-read for every American.

It explains the true motives and profiteers of America's endless wars.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
