The original American patriots were those individuals brave enough to resist with force the oppressive power of King George. I accept the definition of patriotism as that effort to resist oppressive state power. The true patriot is motivated by a sense of responsibility and out of self-interest for himself, his family, and the future of his country to resist government abuse of power. He rejects the notion that patriotism means obedience to the state.” — Ron Paul

This one works for me0 what is your definition of a Patriot?

I am saddened by what I found...there are no longer quotes supporting but 99% are against and how wrong Patriotism is..............

I would question the self interest part, as most patriots didn't fair to well,.. then or now..

usually when you go against a government it isn't in your own self interest..


to see some views.. (I think a few really said it well),, but I didn't fully agree with any single one...

I think most have an idea that standing up for what is right and God given is not always the easiest path. but needs to be done..
