    Are you proud of your country despite whos running in it? Or are you proud only with a good leader and when things are going right?

    Or do you just not care?

    As for me im not really patriotic. I find it silly enough they sing the national anthem at baseball games here in the state. :lol:

    Yes, I think I'm patriotic, but I'm patriotic enough to criticize my country to make it better.

    i am ashamed to be patriotic when our nation makes a fool of itself but i am glad i live here.

    but i am 100% anti-nationalist.

    america isnt the saviour of the world and i hate when people act like it is

    I'm patriotic enough not to blindly agree with leaders taking my country down the wrong path.

    Patriotic enough to know that the United States is the only country in the world that I'd want to live in, even with all of her flaws.

    Even if my country does something that I dont agree with, I will still be patriotic.

    It's more a sort of humorous response, although I think that a patriot is "proud" of his country, which I find ridiculous, whereas a nationalist thinks that his country is the best damn nation on the planet.
