My parents, my uncles and my aunts all served for the military or married others serving. A few of my cousins are also in the military. I show that I am a Patriot by respecting and honoring my family and the others who served along side them. I'm proud of my country- but not everything it does. Part of Patriotism is realizing your country isn't perfect at all but still choosing to respect your fellow citizens.
i do, i express it by standing up for everything i believe in, expressing my views, and exercising my rights as an american. i do not believe we are even close to as good of a nation as we should be with our global power / influence and technology. but opposing the powers that be is one of the most patriotic thing an american can do.
I am a thoroughly patriotic American! I express it by wishing the best for my country and trying to hold it to the highest standards. Be all that you can be USA, and stop being the low-life cesspool of political and ECONOMIC corruption that you have devolved into.
