The answer often depends on whose ox is being gored. Republicans often felt dissent from Bush was not patriotic at all. Liberals & Democrats would respond, “Dissent is patriotic!” Now the shoe is on the other foot, and it’s Republicans/conservatives/libertarians who are the big dissenters. It is they who now proclaim “Dissent is patriotic!”
Now all this is fine, even amusing. For us, it’s not what you’re against but what you’re FOR. That’s why we’ve been attracted to the Falconist Party. Like us, they call for the political, economic, social, cultural and military rebuilding of America as well as the expansion of the USA.
