What is a patriot?

The term "Patriotism" first appeared during the reign of queen Elizabeth, from the Latin word "patriōta" (countryman). The Latin "patriōta", comes from the Greek word, "patriotēs", which means "of the same country". The Greek term "patriotēs", comes from the Greek word "patris", meaning "father land", or "country".

During the French and Indian Wars England (and later Great Britian) assumed a massive war debt. The French and Indian Wars consisted of King William's War (Nine Years' War), Queen Anne's War(the War of the Spanish Succession), King George's War, War of Jenkins' Ear (the War of the Austrian Succession), and the French and Indian War(the Seven Years' War).
During Quen Anne's War (the War of the Spanish Succession), a group of radical Whigs (classic liberals), and Jacobite Tories (Pro-house of Stuart) formed the "Country Party", also known as the "patriot party", or "Patriot Whigs".

The Patriots of the Country Party were opposed to the Whigs and Tories who formed the Court party. The Court Party was made up of Junta Whigs, and Hanoverian Tories. The Court Party believed that government policies should serve the interest of the King and/or Court (the king and/or parliament), whereas the Country/Patriot party believed that government policies should serve the interest of the people (the countrymen).

The Country Party opposed the French and Indian wars because the wars were running up a debt, and impressment. Between 1755 and 1757 there was a recorded 16,953 men impressed into the royal Navy; this made up 24% of the royal navy. The increased debt was the reason behind the taxation which led to the American revolution, and impressment was another grievance listed against the king in the US declaration of independence.

A patriot is therefore someone who supports his fellow countrymen, against the State, and against any other threat or opposition.

What are you illiterate? I didn't just use the Etymology, I showed how it was used after the word came into the English language.
