    Trump, because he's the only open nationalist. Sanders has some nationalist policies, as well, as well as very socialist ones.
    As a note - while Nazis were nationalist socialists, it was the socialism that was more dangerous than the nationalism. No one cares about nationalist Puerto Ricans or Scots - they don't kill anyone. Socialist regimes killed at least a hundred million last century.

      Yeah nationalism is so much better than socialism. Medicare and social security are socialist policies, believing your nationality is superior than others is a nationalist idea and one of the reasons for the holocaust.

      Do you feel closer to Canada than the US because you live close Canada?
      Your comment doesn't have a point!

      Exactly Tamara, Trump is the only patriot in the presidential race.  Hillary is a globalist & Bernie is a stone cold communist to be avoided at ALL costs!

    What is your definition of Patriotic?
    And how does it fit into the election?

    If you think what a patriot is referring to in this country, a rebel that fought during the Revolutionary war to give people a voice in their government. Then I'm going to have to say Bernie Sanders.

    Our constitution is the document that defines our government and our laws and it starts with "We the people of the United States of America". So that's what our founding fathers, true patriots wanted, they wanted our government to start foremost with the authority granted to it by the people it was built to represent. Now which one sounds like that, willing to make major changes for the benefit of average Americans?

    There's Hillary, who doesn't stand with the people, at all in my opinion, more and more often it just seems like she's in it because she feels entitled to it. Not to mention the way she "evolves", a politician should change their platform a little to align itself with what the people want but she has gone left, gone right, do a 180, and then go back to her original stance on the issues this election, which direction she goes depends on what state has an upcoming primary. For example she said she would put coal workers out of jobs and then went to West Virginia and said that she supports coal workers and what they do for this country.

    Then there's Trump, at least he is trying to look out for the best interest of the Citizens of the US; but he's just a rich boy trying to relate to how bad it is to be poor. He makes some good points on occasion and he wants to change how the government works so that it works for all of us but I just don't think a man who considers $1,000,000 a small loan can really relate to a person like me who currently $38 overdrawn and waiting on my next paycheck.

    Finally there's Bernie, he's not wealthy, nor was he ever that wealthy. He's stood up for civil rights his entire adult life, did what he could to make positive change during his time in the House and now in the Senate, and sticks to his convictions. The last part is something he's commended for by his political allies and political rivals alike, even Trump has admitted that Bernie is an honest man.

    Donald Trump is by far the most patriotic presidential candidate.  He espouses the positives of America & his hopes of making America better socioculturally, socio-politically, & socioeconomically.  He unabashedly cares for America & put its interest first & foremost.  He is no-nonsense regarding his stance on illegal immigration & the fight on terrorism.  He isn't afraid to speak up for & fight for the interests of the American people.
