I think it would be interesting to see what people think is doing something for their country. I served 4 years in the USMC, and have paid my taxes for the last 45 years, and I believe I have been a good citizen. Is that doing enough? Should it be more? What actually makes a person patriotic?

That is doing something

I want taking about the countless of "super patriotic" people who claim they are more patirotic than liberals etc yet all they do is... claim they are more patriotic while they sit on their butts

I am sure that happens, but both sides generalize too much. Defining what patriotism is would be a good start. Can you be patriotic if you love your country as you suck the free benefits out of it while giving back nothing?

No you're wrong, being patriotic is a love for one's country and would defend it if necessary.

I'm very patriotic, I love my country, but I've never went to war, I've never marched in a parade. But I've raised a good family, lived a good life, paid my taxes and am a good citizen.

I know I can't change the world but figured if I kept my own backyard clean, paid reasonable taxes, raised working taxpayers, wasn't a burden on my country, stand for the flag and pledge to honor my country, I was patriotic.
Mission accomplished.

They think that bitching online and using "clever" terms like libtard strikes a major blow for the common man
