What a fine example we have here of correctness thinking...
You criticize something and it is immediately assumed you "hate" America......
Patriotism is a disease, a false idol users use to rally others to do their fighting, congressmen whose sons will never face war love to wax on about "patriotism'. and through that, the word has come to mean "love it or leave it"
Loving one's country is not only possible, but desired over "patriotism", as it comes from the heart and is strong enough to see what's wrong and try to fix it. The "patriot" believes its wrong to even see what's wrong.
"Small people talk about people, average people talk about events, great people talk about ideas" Eleanor Roosevelt
“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists to adapt the world to himself.
Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” ― George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman
