It seems as though most Americans are treating this country as though it were their favorite football team....with flag stickers all over their cars and silly little semi-clever catch phrases like "these colors don't run" yada yada yada. To me, this has turned into nationalism, NOT patriotism. I am ALL FOR patriotism, but nationalism is a completely different story, and something I Think we should be concerned with.
..also, before people start calling me unpatriotic, I"ll stop you right there, because I love this country just as much as the next guy. I am afraid of the direction it is going in though, and I am trying to do what I feel is right to get it going on the right track.
