Liberal Patriotism, is that an oxymoron or just a moron?

The Dallas Morning News reprinted an article from McClatchy Newspapers. It was about an American liberal who for the past 8 years of Republican President Bushs administration, kept the flag in a closet. This liberal felt no patriotism during those years. The day after Senator Barack Obama became President-elect Barack Obama; this person took the flag out of the closet to demonstrate his new found patriotism.

Once again another illustration of the mental disorder known as liberalism. A true patriot does not have their love of country predicated upon who the current occupant of The Oval Office is (The White House). Patriotism is love of country, the nations history, and fellow citizens, present, past, and hopefully future.

Thomas Paine pamphleteer of the American Revolution (1776 1783) wrote:

"These are the times that try men's souls: The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman."

Liberals such as the person in the article are the summer soldier a seasonal patriot, while rest of us are patriots for all four seasons.
