    Can someone explain to me the 'love it or leave it' mentality we get from some (okay, many) conservatives?

    Did the FF leave the colonies or change the system?

    Should the abolitionists and slaves have just left instead of changing the system?

    Should women have left instead of changing the system?

    Should children have left if people didn't want them working in the mines with no protection?

    Should blacks and women have simply left if they didn't like being able to vote?

    Maybe they should leave if they don't like *insert social program or government policy here*? Or do they only want people who disagree with them to elave so they can avoid real debate?

    In some parts of the world you can't "leave it".

    It isn't so much a "love it or leave it" mentality;

    it's an "if you hate it so much, go where you think it's better" mentality,

    and quit trying to ruin it for the REST of us by turning THIS unique place into just another one of THOSE places.

    Seriously. If the very BEDROCK of this system is so wrong,

    get on down the road to a place that you can be HAPPY

    by manning-up with the courage of your convictions

    and SHOW us how great it is elsewhere.

    I'd be down with funding ONE-way tickets to whomsoever wants a Better Place To Live,

    as well as funding the bureaucracy to change over citizenship status for you,

    but I'm absolutely CERTAIN that you'll find some sort of fault with ^that^ more-than-generous offer...

    Cripes.

    Odd I dont recall any conservatives stating they were moving out of the country if they failed to win an election. Yet many of the left have, Could there be a conservative who did? Probably

    So I find your point lacking any real objectivity.

    Thanks for the offer but I got out before the cancer set in.

    Shit. If you have to live in the m_pyre you could at least find somewhere better than the idiot capital of it.

    Get a passport. You need to get out more. You're flagwashed.

    Why then have the tea party partakers not taken flight? Since the nomination of Obama for the office of POTUS they have whined and complained about everything. I suppose no other nation would take American emigrants dressed in 18th century garb who hate and fear anyone they determine is not American enough.

    If they knew of somewhere that they'd be HAPPIER,

    YES!

    Especially if their "ride" was FREE.

    I spoke to this, regarding forums, in another post.

    If I'm not happy here?

    I'm down and OUT.

    There are a MILLION other places that I can be, online.

    My friends, here? If they're my REAL friends? They'll follow/search for/watch me,

    to see if THEY want to be where I am.

    That's life, pal. That's how it IS, in all reality.

    If YOU aren't looking for a place to "be," that suits YOUR ideology,

    you're nothing but a rabble-rouser who wants everyone else to PAY for your dissatisfaction.

    Fuck, dude. WE'LL PAY for you to get on down the road. In the Big Scheme of Things, paying to get RID of you will cost us SO much LESS,

    AND

    YOU, too, can be HAPPY!!!

    If you've ever read a Bible? You know that women were considered Property.

    Yet and still, men held their loves close to their hearts,

    cared for and Concerned themselves with what that "property" would think of them.

    If you resign yourself to BEING "property," you're just someTHING;

    if you don't, you're someONE.

    Mang, I can't believe that the Bible is as THIN as it is,

    considering the fact that this shit is this HARD to explain!
