    As I also stated in the Patriotism Is Bad YKTTW:

    "Patriotism" has come to be a kind of loaded term, and also a term people are going to disagree on the meaning of. Some will take it to mean never questioning or disagreeing with the actions of one's country or its government (especially so in time of war); while others will take the view that a true patriot can care enough about one's country to actually question it or its government's actions critically, for the sake of the betterment of their country. (I tend to take the latter view.) And then of course, among patriots who allow for such questioning, what or who (or which party) is questioned is often dependent on what values the "patriot" thinks are "patriotic values"--which of course will happen to coincide with their political worldviews.

    As such, the term is almost meaningless--more often used as a term to "righteously" distinguish one or an "us" from a "them", than to express a sincere love of country which maybe both have.
