Do you defend your country without asking why?

Yes I'm a patriot although I regard myself as Scottish first and British second.

I'm a patriot but first i defend my life and my family then my country. If one day i'll have to defend my country i'll do it indoors not outdoors! Indoors i'll be defending my country, outdoors i'll be defending someone else's war.

Absolutely not. What kind of country would America be if we all reacted blindly instead of responding intelligently? Dictatorships are made that way- didn't we learn anything from the rise of Hitler? It IS patriotic to ask why- that's how America became independent of Britain.

I don't think so... I would always ask why I risk my life. I don't see why I (or my boyfriend, or sb of my family or friends) shoud leave my home to fight without know the reason why.

If needed, yes, I think I would defend my country. About my freedom, I defend it every day : freedom of speak, freedom of think, freedom of act, etc. I'm a quite independant person, so I already defend my freedom on different ways. I don't think I would go backwards if I have to defend it at a higher level.

im not a patriot .cos i beleive being grouped with patriots is a big "nono" They just exhibit their patriotism..even if they have none ..since they cant really think what they re doing blinded by a desire to disply........so no im not a patriot

Yes, I am. I know that my country has its drawbacks in plenty, thanks to dirty politics and politicians. Yet, I salute my country. I love my country. Jai Hind.
