American nationalism

An 1869 Thomas Nast cartoon espousing American nationalism. In the cartoon, Americans of different ancestries and ethnic backgrounds sit together at a dinner table with Columbia to enjoy a Thanksgiving meal as equal members of the American citizenry, while Uncle Sam prepares and sets the table. Thus, the cartoon espouses an inclusive form of American nationalism that is civic in nature, where membership in the nation is not dependent upon ethnicity.[1][2]

American patriotism is patriotism involving cultural attachment of Americans to the United States as their homeland.[1] American patriotism has been identified by some as distinct from American nationalism because of the emphasis of American patriotism upon values rather than a commitment to a nation.[1]Ralph Waldo Emerson described the United States as an "asylum of all nations".[2] Official American values were laid out in the Declaration of Independence that emphasized human rights, such as declaring that "all men are created equal", that people have "inalienable rights", and that people have the right to "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness"[3] American patriotism has also focused on the principles and values of the Constitution of the United States.[4]

Patriotism is an active loyalty to one’s country. Patriotism is important to any country. It is what bonds citizens of a country together regardless of other distinctions. American Patriotism is a loyalty not to a party or president, but to the American Constitution and founding values. The Constitution guarantees the basic freedoms and rights of American citizens, establishes a balance of power within the government, and creates the system for elections and peaceful transitions of power. The Constitution is America, and American citizens are America. As America changes, its roots stay the same. America is, as Abraham Lincoln said, “government of the people, by the people, for the people”.
