    Yeah, so why are they still here? If they don't have the sense to realize they CAN leave, I'm not going to take them seriously.

    To tell someone to leave their country because they don't like its current conditions shows the signs of narrow-mindedness. If people do not complain or grieve about the conditions in which they live, if they complacently go about their routine without facing the truth of injustices then America will never undergo change. If people do not recognize their own consciences, which make them aware of the evils of prejudice that still exist, then America does not evolve. Where would our nation be without complainers? Without people who didn't like the conditions in which they lived? African Americans, women, and all minorities alike, have announced the injustices subjected on them. With their loud voices America has perpetually evolved into an ever more democratic state, with more and more representation of the citizenry, and more and more participation among all legitimate groups of people. When someone says they don't like America, don't tell them to leave; ask them how everyone can improve it.

    Wasn't America born because people didn't like the country they lived in and demanded some change?

    So they demanded changes in their respective countries. Then they moved out of their countries because they didn't like it and thought they would be better off elsewhere. Good post, Scourge, and good advice to those that are anti-American.

    We're not referring to the people who don't like the current administration, we're talking abou those people who burn flags and show support for terrorism. I've seen one of them holding a sign proclaiming that they like NY better without the WTC.

    Here are a couple of examples of people that I think should be on the next plane out of the country.

    I just felt the comment that people who don't like the U.S. ought to leave was a somewhat undemocratic. As for the flag burners and those who praise terrorists and their murderous ideologies, I am sickened by them. One must not enjoy their country, necessarily, but to support people who attack it marks treason in my mind. Those people should be stripped of their citizenship.
