What is the Democrat definition of patriotism?
Over the last several years, various Democrat politicians would get very indignant and complain that people were questioning their patriotism whenever their judgment on national defense was challenged. Well, after a recent speech by a leading Dem presidential candidate John Edwards I have to wonder if they have any understanding of the word patriotism. Discussing a plan to heavily charge (okay, tax) industry for creating greenhouse gases to generate money for investing in clean technology Edwards finished with these words:
"That is an aggressive goal but an achievable goal," Edwards said. "We need you, we need America to be willing to be patriotic about something other than war."So, now it is a form of patriotism to want to cripple industry with a 40 billion dollar assessment in an attempt to solve a problem that may not even exist. However, in their bizzaro world dealing with a real threatening enemy (Islamic fanaticism) that has vowed to kill us if we don't pray to Mecca five times a day has nothing to do with patriotism. Huh?
