But not for some of the folks over at Democratic Underground. If you ever need to re-enforce your belief that liberals are a whiny little girls then this is the website for you. Some highlights from their popular thread titled:
Excuse me for not feeling patriotic
I haven't felt patriotic in quite some time.
If I had the money, I'd probably be living in Canada.
Excuse em for not feeling patriotic about a country that:
allows others to profit off the suffering of others (health care industrial complex, military industrial complex, prison industrial complex, etc.)
does not guarantee health care for everyone, regardless of ability to pay
does not provide a good K-12 education
does not guarantee full employment or make an attempt to have full employment
has a corrupt legislative branch (Congress)
is engaged in two wars that we won't win
racially profiles its own citizens (War on Drugs)
locks up more people than any other country in the world
has allowed itself to be corrupted by Big Business
does not treat everyone equally under the law
hardly gives a damn about its own citizens
That is all.
I am sure many of you can add more to the list but I am sure you get where I'm going with this.
So the original poster would rather live in Canada but doesn't have the money. I suppose a that getting a job to earn money is out of the question...
But the follow up comments are when it gets really good:
Some don't even regard GLBT Americans as worthy of being citizens, some would stone GLBT Americans to death, that is how bigoted and racist this country is IMO.
The USA is a bigoted and racist country because the above commentator is just positive that "some" would stone gays to death. Later on the same person posts this:
But stoning would be more painful, I think of them as so cruel and heartless. I would not put it past some of these people to start extermination camps if they came to power, they are made of the same evil cloth as those who conducted the inquisitions. I have often thought in my lifetime that many citizens one day might have to flee America for asylum in other countries.
Where would these gays flee to avoid stoning? The middle east? Africa?
I could keep going but feel free to read it for yourself. Just a reminder that not everybody here loves our country or the liberties that our founding secured. Those people are Obama voters.
