What Does Patriotism “Look Like?”
Posted by jeremiasx on January 22, 2007
Maybe something like this?
This man has literally laid his life and livelihood on the line for what he believes in. What could possibly be more patriotic? These types of displays are lamentably rare in a culture that embraces convenience and shuns the “protester or dissenter” as something to be maligned, humiliated, and discredited.
Those who question his motivation have the absolute freedom to do so…however, he has the absolute freedom (constitutionally) to redress the government for grievances, and if it turns out he’s right…who wouldn’t want to join him in the same protest? How many of you will defend your government’s right to tax you without representation or even allow you to question the practice? That seems like ignorant bliss to me…*sigh*
