You can be a good patriot and not agree with George Bush.
Patriotism was drummed into me ever since I can remember. My ancestors fought in the American Revolution; one of them was a captain. I was always taught to honor my ancestors' sacrifice.
George Bush crosses the line when he accuses people who don't agree with him of being traitors. Just where is he coming from, exactly? His whole family is highly suspect when it comes to their patriotism. His grandfather bankrolled the Nazis. (Check this out, "How Bush's grandfather helped Hitler's rise to power," from the Guardian.) What kind of patriots are the Bushes anyway, and who is George Bush to impugn the patriotism of other Americans? He comes from a family of war profiteers, or much worse -- the Nazis exterminated millions of innocent people.
George Bush went out of his way to avoid military service to this country and is now responsible for killing over 3,000 of our soldiers in an unnecessary war in Iraq, waged on lies.
He has countenanced an obscene spate of war profiteering, while depriving our soldiers of basic equipment needed for their own survival in combat.
What kind of a patriot is George Bush? Look at his background -- the fruit doesn't fall far from the tree.
