Patriotism is supporting your country all the time, and your government when it deserves it. Mark Twain
In that one quote Mark Twain shows his real understanding of the very complex issue of patriotism. For while we should always support our government our government should always deserve our support. Far to often today our government deserves only our forgiveness.
Just pray that soon a patriot can again support our government without regret and as Americans we that once again we can hold our head high.
