    Nope, I don't like my country at all. Most of the time I oppose the government just because they're the government :p

    I consider a patriot to be a person that questions the government and not agree with them blindly just because, so yes I am a patriot.

    Patriotic dissent FTW!

    No. Patriotism is a poor trait.

    No I'm not. I vote for parties who have no chance, I won't join the military and I won't go into politics. One person can't make a difference, as I prove every day.

    No. Patriotism is a dangerous trait.

    Yes, I love my country [face_flag] We're so blessed in this country compared to a lot of other nations.

    Misunderstanding what patriotism is is the real danger. Blindly following what your leaders tell you, for example, is not patriotism.

    I'm speaking from the Anglosphere here (UK, USA, Australia, Canada, NZ)... most anti-patriots are self-flagellating, anti-white-guilt, anglophobe apologists.

    Yes, I love my country, but I will never follow my government blindly.

    No. I used to be, but I've grown out of that. If there is a draft I am moving overseas.

    I'm certainly not a patriot to my part of the country.

    Yes, I consider myself a patriot, and damn proud of it. I love my country, and thank God everyday for allowing me to be a part of it.

    Contrary to what many conservatives call me for opposing the handling of the Iraq War, I, too, think one of the fundamental beliefs of a patriot is to be vocal when you're country is wrong, for it shows that you truely care about the direction of the nation.

    I would have to say yes, but never to the extent that I believe everything the government tells me to believe. In fact, I probably don't believe *most* of what the government wants me to, but I do support my country and hope my contribution will make it a "better place."
