@djjd62,
DJ? Due to inflation of the Canadian dollar, you will need a little more Canadian based patriotism to equal the amount of American patriotism. Okay, it's only a penny's worth but still.

Looking at this very elementary structure of this alleged survey, I sincerely hope that this project is for a middle school or high school level assignment.

Patriotism is a propaganda trick, emotionally blackmailing you to do the trickster's bidding or be stigmatized as un-American. Just say no!

@Thomas,
Isn't that misguided or misleading patriotism Thomas?

@tsarstepan,
Perhaps. There may be examples of patriotism that are not misleading in this way. But I haven't seen them.

Ambrose Bierce

Erstwhile journalist, soldier, and alleged lexicographer.

Born, 1842, disappeared after St. Stephen's Feast, 1913.

Combustible rubbish ready to the torch of any one ambitious to illuminate his name.

In Dr. Johnson's famous dictionary patriotism is defined as the last resort of a scoundrel. With all due respect to an enlightened but inferior lexicographer I beg to submit that it is the first.
