It is absolutely important to teach our children patriotism right now! This cannot be over-emphasized. The next generation will have to be true blooded Americans who love their country. If not, all will be lost. America as we know it will be no more!

I think it is important though I believe you can not teach it. Kids will learn patriotism by watching it in action.

I don't think kids should be taught to blindly support where they happened to be born, no.  A lot of people confuse patriotism with elitism; America is the best country in the world! and yadda, yadda.  How can you honestly say that when you've probably never been to any other countries yourself?!
