If that is truly how you see this country do it's citizenry a favor would you? Please remember a little thing called FREEDOM. Please exercise your
FREEDOM to move your *SNIP to North Korea, Cuba or any other of a long list of countries. Hell, you just let me know and I will be more than happy to
come help you with your travel arrangements.
From the looks of your post I would say it is quickly becoming land of the blind and home of common sense's grave.
The most dangerous attitude towards change is one of complacency, or contentedness with the status quo. This type of argument is the scariest of all;
the 'ol patriots "Love it or leave it" hymn. Just accept what's going, cause hey, it's worse somewhere else! This sort nationalist viewpoint has
been very effective throughout history in getting masses of people to accept all kinds of atrocities.
I live in California, and your stereotypical retort is far less than accurate. Believe me, California (esp. Berkeley & San Fran) is no threat to the
status quo; the Beemer drivers here could give a rat's a$$ about what is going on as long the sushi is fresh, prop 8 gets passed, and Macy's has the
latest fashions in stock.
The letter makes some valid points, and Craigslist, ATS, or anywhere a open ear can be found is a good starting point. It is plainly, and painfully
obvious, that the biggest threat to any type of change in the direction we are heading, is the BLINDLY patriotic citizen willing to put a bullet in
the back of those that dare question or comment on the way things are going.
No the "Love or Leave it" anthem, is much better suited for a country like N. Korea, or China, where a constitution like ours never exisited.
Go back to sleep...
