I keep seeing articles about Obama and his wife. He stopped wearing that flag lapel pin. She is prouder of her country than she has been since she was a child. People keep saying this is unpatriotic. I disagree. You can love your country and be ashamed of your governments actions. None of us are proud that our country slaughtered Indians or enslaved Africans. That doesn't mean we aren't patriots. If we are ashamed of our recent torture and warmongering, I don't think that makes us unpatriotic either.
