Originally a word used to describe someone who takes pride in being a citizen of their country. Most recently used to keep down anti-war activists by accusing them of not loving their country because they don't want to send innocent men and women to their deaths for unjust cause.

After being called a non-patriot, it is very likely the person will also be called a terrorist as well. Ironically enough, so-called "terrorists" would be probably be considered patriots by their own people.
If you're not a patriot who wants to kill people, you're a terrorist who...wants to kill people?

The man who can holler the loudest without knowing what he is hollering about.
--Mark Twain
Joe: Gay marriage must remain illegal!

Jim: Why?

Joe: Because...it must! I am a patriot! I must defend my country's sacredness and the rights of the American people!

Jim: But is gay marriage really that damaging? And aren't you taking away people's rights by opposing gay marriage?

Joe: Well...um...you did read that study, didn't you?

Jim: What study?

Joe: You know...that one...a while back...that proved that gay marriage is evil?

Jim: How did they prove it? What were their methods?

Joe: Well...um...they...did a bunch of...um...statistics, and....

Jim: ...There is no such study, is there?

Joe: Well...um...not exactly...

Jim: So...why do you oppose gay marriage?

Joe: Well...um...because all of my friends are opposed to gay marriage, so I'm going to oppose it too!

Jim: (facepalm)

One who loves, supports, and defends one's country. --Country being not the landmass, nation or government, but the citizenry--

I am a patriot, because serve in the military and kill for my country (being my fellow citizens; servicemen/veterans, those born in America or legally naturalized) in service to the citizens of the United States of America. So that they have the choice to be or support; PC/multicults, Communists, NeoCons, or general kleptocrats and continue to fail the next generation to come, as those have since the "Social Revolution" of the 60's have failed us. True Americans vest themselves into the system we serve for love of country and whilst most tend to accrue --that which commonly is-- ordinary ignorance of the law, government, geopolitics. All the while believing in hypocritic illogical fallacies fed to them by their localized media source or network.

A patriot is a verb and not a noun because one must actively seek to protect or further the interests of his/her country. If there is no active involvement, the person is not a patriot, but a citizen. The act of protecting or furthering the good of the country must be done for the love of the country and not simply a means to an end.
An example is a person joining the military to protect his/her country is a patriot. A person joining the military to benefit from the college tuition benefits is simply a citizen.

The scope of patriotism may be small or large. Giving your life for your country is big act of patriotism. The simple act of picking up trash in your neighborhood is a small act of patriotism for it leads to a better society and hence, country. If this same vision was share by 10,000 people throughout the country, a simple act of patriotism would make a large impact.

1. someone who believes that the country in which they happened to be born entitles them to the destruction of other peoples and nations.
2. someone who finds paying taxes in order to overthrow existing foreign governments, replace them with their own nation's corporate lobbyists, and then later destroy them when deemed to be out of compliance with the economic interests of their own country to be a worthwhile expenditure.
The Ameriacn patriots empowered Hussein with millions of tax dollars and weapons in order to fight Iran, then starved 50,000 Iraqi children a year from 1992-1997 by blockading and destroying supply shipment routes to civilian areas before realizing that yet another war was necessary if their country was ever going to establish true economic control of a region vital to nurturing American overconsumption.
