    The way I see American politics, it seems there is always, like ALWAYS a huge amount of the population that hates the government, probably because of the stupid two party system.

    I love me some Mark Twain, but this quote is a sign of his times, and is naive at best. A contemporary of his had it much better figured out…

    “It will be said, “Patriotism has welded mankind into states, and maintains the unity of states.” But men are now united in states; that work is done; why now maintain exclusive devotion to one’s own state, when this produces terrible evils for all states and nations? For this same patriotism which welded mankind into states is now destroying those same states. If there were but one patriotism say of the English only then it were possible to regard that as conciliatory, or beneficent. But when, as now, there is American patriotism, English, German, French, Russian, all opposed to one another, in this event, patriotism no longer unites, but disunites.” ~ Lev Tolstoy

    “Tell people that war is an evil, and they will laugh; for who does not know it? Tell them that patriotism is an evil, and most of them will agree, but with a reservation. “Yes,” they will say, “wrong patriotism is an evil; but there is another kind, the kind we hold.” But just what this good patriotism is, no one explains…” ~ Lev Tolstoy

    It’s frightening how few people seem to realise the difference between patriotism and nationalism.

    Patriotism is over rated.

    Isn’t government a huge part of a country, though? What does he mean by supporting the country?

    Well now that people are so public with their politics, this doesn’t work so well. Because others know who put the government they don’t like in power. It’s why I try to encourage privacy. There is a reason it’s illegal to take pictures of your ballot. We need to start acting like privacy in all forms is important again.

    The question that needs to be asked more than ever is: does the government deserve to be supported?

    I say no, and it hasn’t been for a long long time.

    Nowadays the government runs the country. Any other viewpoint is thrown in jail, by the government. You can’t even fish without a permit or you get thrown in jail for repeated offenses and tickets.
