Conditions that exist in our country today require that patriotism should be promoted in every way possible.
Too many of the politicians are putting the Country's interest second and their personal gains first in their desire to stay in office or gain a higher position. They're not even Americans, these so called Democrats, or Republicans, or whatever! They're not interested in the American Constitution, or its founding principles! Are we going to stand for that?
Giving aid and comfort to the enemy, during time of war, is considered treason! If a citizen repeats, as real, the propaganda of the enemy --- that, in our book, is treason.
Such statements were in vogue, on both sides of the isle, when Congress was in session this spring (2008).
