What percentage of Americans do you consider patriotic? 50%? 60%? How about almost 90%?
Asked about their pride in being an American by Gallup in 2003, 91 percent of Americans either were "extremely proud" or "very proud." When given the choice whether to live in the United States or some other country, a March 2004 Fox News/Opinion Dynamics poll found that 93 percent of Americans would prefer to live in the United States
By looking at this you would have to believe that we are truly unified in our love for this land. And in part you would be right. But what this poll is hiding is the descriptive definition of patriotism. If both sides agree that patriotism is the love of country, do we both agree on what that expression of love is? Absolutely not! Here for example, in the same research poll, is an indication of what I mean.
