I love some things about where I live, but I can't honestly say I love the country any more. I used to but it's... well, like loving an abusive partner, at this point. All they do is hurt you and treat you like you're worthless, but you're either unable to leave, too scared to, or too invested in the one or two bright aspects of the relationship to give up what hurts.

That isn't what America or the Constitution stand for ~ that is the American government (and you'd get no argument from me that Uncle Sammy needs a boot up his arse).

I agree.

Where do you live? Texas?

Oh? Isn't this the rhetoric we hear from "TRUE 'MERICANS" all the time?

Military loves this bullshit. Constitution screamin' wingnuts from the right love this rhetoric.

And don't give me that constitution bull. The constitution was written by and for a bunch of rich white male slaveowners who said everyone should be free... except blacks, poor people, immigrants, women and Indians. It remains by and for rich, white men.
