15. Obama has begun to talk about what patriotism REALLY is - I hope he continues...
Edited on Mon Jun-09-08 10:28 AM by polichick
imo patriotism has to do with sacrifice for the greater good ~ these days that can mean giving up gas hogs and assault weapons, as much as it does taking care of our vets and ponying up for great schools. But the Republican "all talk, no action" brand of patriotism is bullshit.
