Patriotism in Buddhism

It seems the United States is headed in the wrong direction, and yet I feel such gratitude for my country.

There are more Buddhists in America than any country outside Asia, especially due to our immigrant heritage.

America was the first nation on earth founded on the ideals of freedom and democracy, and our history has been a constant struggle toward fulfilling these ideals.

It’s also worth mentioning the bottom 5% of Americans enjoy a higher living standard than 68% of the world:

Does Buddhism have any teachings related to patriotism?
