The Changing Definition of the Word "Patriot"

Don’t you love how the definition of the word “Patriot” has changed? Patriots of the old days were the ones that wanted to throw off the chains of the oppressive British government. They were the radicals, the minority, the risk takers. Today, a “Patriot” is one who salutes the flag, obeys the government, pays their taxes, hates muslims, hates “terrorists”, supports the troops no matter what kind of murderous genocide they commit, votes Republican (or Democrat, depending on the crowd), snitches on their neighbor for breaking the law, no matter how ridiculous or victim-less, etc, etc.
