Dixie Chick Natalie Maines on patriotism, 2003:

I guess on some level I feel like me speaking out, not only that particular statement, but here today, is the most patriotic thing I can do.

Dixie Chick Natalie Maines on patriotism, 2006:

I don’t understand the necessity for patriotism. Why do you have to be a patriot? About what? This land is our land? Why? You can like where you live and like your life, but as for loving the whole country … I don’t see why people care about patriotism.

As Thomas Jefferson said: “Not caring about patriotism is the … er … greatest form of patriotism.”

UPDATE. Maines is from Lubbock, Texas. I spotted a Fiat 850 Spider rusting among other vehicles in someone’s front yard on Lubbock’s outskirts about 15 years ago. Anyone know if it’s still there?
