LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT?
We hear it said, "America, love it or leave it." That confuses the government with the society it governs. You can love the American people and still be very critical of the government. Suppose I hire a guard with a dog to protect my home, and the dog continually attacks my family and refuses retraining.
Would you expect the guard to tell me to leave if I complain?
It is claimed this is the freest country on earth, but is it as free as it can be? A
maximum security prison is a limited animal cage. Medium security offers more freedom and
minimum security is the FREEST PRISON in the system...
but it's still a prison.
To offer democracy or a republic as the best form of central control, authority and bureaucracy is like saying arsenic is a better poison than cyanide, because it tastes better and acts slower. The best of several evils, is still evil.
We can smell the bad breath of tyranny in Wash. D.C. Just because Russia, Cuba, or Iran have worse bad breath, doesn't justify a democratic tyranny. A rose by any other name smells sweet, and tyranny by any other name still stinks.
Love it or leave it? Should we vote with our feet again? Our ancestors did that to come
here seeking liberty.
It's unacceptable to talk about leaving America, the haven of freedom, to seek freedom. If we won't vote with our feet, we can still vote in elections, on juries and/or by withholding tax dollars and other support.
I'M ASHAMED OF U.S. GOVERNMENTS ,
BUT PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN.
