6. I agree -- there is way too much of that in this country
The Republicans and our MSM make every effort to equate patriotism with acquiescance to whatever our leaders want to do and a belief that our country can do no wrong. I guess they forgot the warning of our Founding Fathers that the preservation of democracy requires a constant struggle.

I saw a piece on FOX News just yesterday that was really disgusting. They're trying to ram down the idea that anyone who criticizes the Iraq war is not only anti-war but anti-troops as well. They base this on a supposed study that claims that criticism of the war hurts our troops morale.

These people are just too much. :mad:
