Just so there’s no doubt, patriotism means

None of these widely recognized, authoritative sources mention The President. While I’m sure most of us assume any President should be a patriot, the reverse — loving the President and his acts — does not make you one.

You are welcome to do so, love the President — you enjoy that freedom in this country — but don’t call yourself a patriot for that reason. That’s not what “patriot” means.

  1. I agree that patriotism means that you love your country. It is important to remember that getting a great education ca help you understand things around you and what they really mean. I would want to make sure I choose a school that teaches my children to be patriotic and to be good citizens of our country.
