Having watched all this patriotic flame wars over the last few months with growing amusement and bewilderment, I thought we might want to find out, how patriotic AE members really are .
So, on a scale from 9 - 1 , how patriotic are you?
9 stands for: I support my country, regardless if its right or wrong what the government are doing. Even if they invade Liechtenstein!
1 stands for: I couldn't care less what country I live or was born in. Long live the Internationale!

I voted 2 btw: "Deutschland vor, noch ein Tor!"

I guess i am the kind of patriot who won't hesitate to object when my country goes off in a direction that i think is against the best interests of my country.  In fact i think i will work to put the country back on the path when it strays.

If you add Rugby to the football, other than that my country ends at my front door.

I voted 1. The simple fact that I'm born in the country I live in does not make it better or more important than any other country in the world.

anywhere between a 1 and a 6, depending what the goverment is doing and my mood.  If you had asked me when I was in 9th grade I probably would have said 7-8, right now definately more of a 1.

I voted 5, but that is for my Armenianism. When it comes to my country of birth, America, i couldnt care less. Armenia would need my help much more than America would, plain and simple.

I voted myself a 9, because I don't confuse the current government with the country. I love deeply the principals under which the country was founded, although the balance of power seems to be breaking down today. I will see what happens.

I chose 7, I love my country, it has its problems though, that obvious. I'm not exactly happy with the current adminstration, and most of all the Republican lead congress.

I voted 6. What about "I support my country, regardless what the government are doing. Especially if they invade Liechtenstein! "? Just think about how much money they could seize..

Actually, some local Austrians wanted to annex Liechtenstein to the Grossdeutsches Reich in autumn 1938 (or march 39?), but were called back by their superiors.

Luxemberg would be even more profitable... Than again both better again. Austria is pretty wealthy too.. and German.... and Poland's practically part of Germany! The french'll come round after a few years occupation and the Italian's can barely run the country themselves you'd be practically saving them. And Russians they just need liberating and Germans could even settle some of the Ukraine.... you never know it could last a 1000 years, that's the spirit!!
