    Besides, it's not as if a self-described libertarian could fault the progressives for being awash in idealistic fantasies with any degree of seriousness.

    I'm not posting to you, I only post when I'm bored.

    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.
    The thing is, it's not patriotism they want to teach.

    From your link:

    It was March 5, 1770, a snowy night, when a couple of young boys began throwing snowballs at soldiers. As the crowd grew larger people continued to throw ice and taunt them.

    From the same link (you should have read it to get some details, which you will see are EXACTLY what I said):

    On March 5, 1770 at approximately 9:00 pm an angry crowd approached sentry Hugh White standing on guard outside of the Customs House. By this time the agitators have already been in another street brawl were ready for action. One of the leaders, Edward Garrick started insulting private White, saying among other things that his company commander was a cheat and did not pay him for a wig. In perhaps the most critical mistake of this evening, White allowed himself to get involved in the quarrel and struck Garrick in the face with the butt of a musket. From there the situation quickly escalated. Despite the reinforcements and the actions taken by captain Preston trying to control the crowd, the angry mob was getting out of control. The seven British solders tried to take White to safety but could not reach him and were forced to defend themselves. Some of the attackers were waving clubs and throwing stones. At some point somebody yelled “You sons of bitches to fire! You can’t kill us all! Fire! Whey don’t you fire? You dare not fire!”

    In the next few minutes the violence reached its peak. One of the attackers threw a club at private Hugh Montgomery, knocking him off his feet. Rising, Montgomery fired a shot into the air. He was stricken again with a club and Montgomery had no choice but to point his gun at the attacker, Richard Palmes who quickly fled. At the same time another soldier Private Matthew Killroy pointed his musket at the other two attackers, Edward Langford and Samuel Gray. “God damn you, don’t fire!” Gray called out. Probably the anger and the fear of being beaten by a club like his fellow solder, private Killroy pulled the trigger mortally wounding Gray. More shots were fired and more people fell to the ground wounded or dead, leaving the aftermath of 5 civilian deaths.

    I have noticed that they obey and follow authority and government leadership when it's conservative. For example, I remember Fox News screaming at Bush Admin protestors as being "unAmerican." But if you're antigovernment or small government, shouldn't you be critical of all forms of government? It doesn't make sense to me.

    I suspect the patriotism crap they hope to teach is anti-immigrant or "real America" indoctrination too. BS.
    You seriously have no idea what the difference is between being for small government and disrespecting the United States?

    Only a liberal would see the act of instilling a sense of national pride in our school children, as a form of political indoctrination.

    Good grief.

    The act of instilling a sense of national pride is in fact... indoctrination.
    A man without fear is a fool, a man that succumbs to his fear is a coward and a brave man acknowledges fear yet presses on.

    Do you think civil protests disrespect the government? Do you think we could obtain a smaller government without a fight or civil protests? If so - how??
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    I didn't say anything about civil protests in my post, which was purely about the difference between being for small government (which isn't the same as "anti-government", and which most real conservatives advocate) and disrespecting the United States (the opposite of patriotism) . It was in response to a post that said this:

    Why are conservatives trying to teach respect of authority and patriotism when they are anti government?

    I don't advocate "fights". I advocate electing people who are smart enough to do the right thing, and agendas that don't bloat the government.
