Ah, but maybe to such people I want to be a dishonorable scumbag who does not love his country. Think of it, these people like to brag that they're real men because they're willing to get their dicks shot off. They're doing it for scumbags like me who wouldn't sacrifice (or so they say). Like I said, how it must stick in their craw.
If I were a politician I would have to play lip service to patriotism just to not be a detriment to my party. Thankfully I am not.
