If the Left truly does "love this country", as they incessantly tell us in their Tourette's Syndrome-like way, why is it that they want to change, quite literally, everything about it?
That's like saying, "I love my wife, but she needs to lose 20 pounds, have plastic surgery, get breast implants, color her hair and get it styled differently. I don't like the color of her eyes, either. And her wardrobe needs to be completely changed. The way she talks needs fixing, and her laugh drives me nuts. While we're at it, her entire personality is wrong, and needs to be changed completely."
What the Left means when they say that they love this country is, "I love what we could turn this country into if only the stupid American people would just shut up and let us turn it into the Socialist utopia that we envision."
The only thing that they presently love about this country is that it gives them the right to attack it without being thrown into a gulag. A real gulag, as opposed to the Dick Durbin type, which is like being locked into the Hyatt Hotel. Yes, it would be nice to leave, but the room service is excellent.
Other than that, I challenge any Lefty to tell me one basic thing about this country that their side hasn't critcized. One thing. I'd even be interested to hear from my friends on the Right: can you come up with anything? I can't.
