I’m No Patriot

I have a confession to make, I’m no patriot. In fact the very idea makes me nauseous. This is a post I have been thinking about writing for a long time now in the interest of transparency–but have been avoiding it as I know it will probably piss a lot of people off. To be honest I have a lot of confessions to make, but I can’t really make them all at once so I will just take it one step at a time. I am one of those people who have to go out and make mistakes for themselves, so I have a lot of things I have done in my life that I am not proud of, but those are tales for another time. Right now, I just want to be upfront, as honest as I can be at the moment and clear on where I am coming from so I don’t mislead anyone.
