2.- Most Republicans equate to be patriot the same as to be American; it is not. There are scores – millions – of Americans (Republicans and Democrats alike) who are not patriots. As pointed out in the earlier paragraph, millions of Republicans including GOP Legislators in Washington (and across the country) are American citizens but they have all proven beyond a shred of a doubt they are no patriots. Perhaps their misunderstanding of the word contributes to their lack of patriotism; perhaps! As such, most believe they’ve met the requirement of being patriots because they are Americans. With such blatantly erroneous understanding of what patriotism is, millions of Republicans have – knowingly and unknowingly – volunteered to help America number one enemy destroy the foundation of our democracy. And yet, by their calculations, they are patriots.
