    Definitely 'yes'.

    Every single drop of water makes a sea. It is simply like that, a country is made by each and every person living within it. You need to love your nation or else you cannot have a positive outlook regarding your country. As simple as being in a family. If I don't love my family then what is the use of staying in it. To be patriot is an important aspect of a person's character building. A person needs to be patriot or else there is always a strong chance that the person may harm the country to satisfy his/her opportunistic intention.

    Yes, I am a Patriot.  I say this because I support my government and my country and maintain my respect for people who view things differently than I do.  I think it's important to be a Patriot because if we undermine our government and our authority figures we can destroy them.  If this happens, we have nothing left but a bunch of people without leaders.

    Whilest I think your question is innocent enough, for the most part..... it happens that - here in the USofA - there are people who have coopted the word "Patriot" to mean:

    "Patriot, (noun); someone who matches my thoughts about what it means to be a "citizen".... even though I don't think that our Country ought to tolerate anyone whose politics don't exactly match mine...."

    I would say that yes I'm a patriot, however others may differ in their opinion. It is important that everyone adhere to the same definition. For example, during the US Civil War the Union soldiers felt they were being patriotic and the Confederate soldiers felt as though they were being patriotic.

    During the US Revolution those that were loyal to the British Crown felt they were patriotic while those that fought against British rule believed in their rights to liberty from the King of England.

    Hence, it depends on whose ox is being gored and your particular political ideology. Therefore, in order to determine someone's Patriotism, it must be defined. My definition of American Patriotism is "defending the Constitution from enemies both foreign and domestic". And if that means being considered a traitor by some Americans then so be it.

    But it is important to maintain core values and be committed to those ideals. Because there will come a time when communists like Obama and socialists like many liberals is Congress (McCain) test your will and commitment to those values in an attempt to compromise those values under the grand illusion of compromise.

    That is why fundamental ideals cannot be compromised, which makes the argument about the benefits of compromising so absurd.
