    Much like the NEH standards debate of 20 years ago, it seems people are agreeing on concept, but nevertheless disagreeing by using overly vague generalities of intensity.

    That's a given. Every 4-8 years there's a cheerleading competition. Then on the sidelines, there's a group that wants to point out the hysteria of the two groups. Further behind them are the few who say it must be so and let them bicker. I'm the last, the libertarians and the independents tend to be the third.

    I suspect the patriotism crap they hope to teach is anti-immigrant or "real America" indoctrination too. BS.
    It's all indoctrination, or socialization if you want a tamer word.

    It's fine though. We hammer out the details, and it becomes moderated.... conservative. Just as it should be. Patriotism and nationalism mold with various amounts of critical thinking and minority consciousness. Life goes on.

    How many soldiers you think the Brits could fit on a boat?
    Tsk, tsk ....

    General Washington never had an army larger than 17,000 under arms at any one time. (Over 90,000 served in the Continental Army, but a significant portion of them for only 6 month enlistments prior to Valley Forge [1777]).

    The English, on the other hand, had over 60,000 under arms in 1779 alone - including 25,000 hired Hessians from Germany. In addition, until the addition of the French to the battles, the English had complete control of the east coastal cities via their uncontested navies (not included in the figures above). There were also an estimated 25,000 Loyalists who fought along side the British. http://www.americanrevolutionarywar.net/

    You may as well be. I might be a progressive because I agree with the means and a severely moderated version of what they saw as the end, but in the end, if I were to be pooled in with them, then I'm not a good progressive. I haven't the idealism in me that you do. Idealism seems to me far more present in your words than mine. I'm interested in small gradual changes, if not the status-quo for most things.
