However, “it all comes ‘round again” has been my take on American history, and while this type of uber patriotism flames up from time to time, I’m reminded of another specific time in American history when charges of anti Americanism were rampant. So rampant in fact, laws were passed that seemed to go against the freedoms we were fighting for in the first place!! Let’s hop in the old historical time machine to the turbulent 1790s, our…

    True Patriotism Patriotism to me means serving one's country, but at the same time knowing what's right and wrong to do. several countries have very strong patriotism and some don't most likely based on religious culture or the way they were raised.

This in turn can result in…

Seemingly, this will keep the soldiers keen and aware, and…

    American As A Patriot I feel as if the Americans were the patriots in the time. The ways that I would see it is we were fighting for freedom, we made our own rules, and we started a population by ourselves. These are the ways that I think can make us a patriot. People think we are bad for wanting to go and being on our own. We the people aren’t the bad ones for what we had done. The first reason I think that we are patriots is we fought for our freedom. We fighting for our freedom was a huge…

    I believe that patriotism is the amount of respect and feeling that someone has towards the country that they live in. Different levels of patriotism can be determined by the amount that someone is willing to sacrifice for their country and the people living within it to help the country as a whole. This can be displayed through various ways but the main one that comes to mind is of those that serve in the military. These men and women should be given the utmost praise for what they have done by…

    Patriotism is extremely important in America and is a piece of the foundation of our government, since it, as well as, nationalism and American pride have been rampant since the American Revolution and early years of the United States. Through patriotism, the U.S. can accomplish many things with the help of its people, especially when times are rough and a considerable amount of help is needed, even if it means sacrificing an arm or a limb, theoretically, for our government. Today, there are…
