Yes it is unpatriotic to not respect your country which you clearly don't do.
Kinda like Micheal Moore who hates his country so much even though it allows him to make millions of slandering it.
Popo freedom and rights are NOT free. People like you make it seem that these things are givens and are not needed to be protected.
We have more rights than any other country. We have one of the highest standards of living. The best technology. And some of the smartest people.
Most major advances of mankind have come thanks to Americans. And yet you have an avatar making it seem like we are all dumb fucks that can't screw in a light bulb, yet if it wasn't for Edison who was American you wouldn't even have electricity.
O yeah and read my sig.
Phantom, we can have all of these things without the need for wars and patriotism and all that. Do you realize, that we would have about $300,000,000,000 extra dollars if not for the war in iraq? thats enough to give every person in this country $1000, and if you cut out the upper and middle class, you can give all the poor people in this country like $3000. or, you know, spend it on something beneficial to the human race besides killing.
I prefer to show Earthism, rather than patriotism. Patriotism is only beneficial to the US government. How does your patriotism help anyone but them? it doesnt help me, or anyone else, or even YOU. the rest of the world needs our "love" too. Like the millions of starving and dieing people in Africa. Imagine if they were given the same benefits as people in the United States? or what about the millions of Mexicans who are dirt poor coming to America to make a better life forthemselves, yet people like you and your patriotism want to drive them out for not paying Taxes. They wouldnt need to if we didnt spend $300,000,000,000 on the war in Iraq, and anothr $250,000,000,000 on the avoidable Katrina Catastrophe
