Just a quick explanation from my perspective for the purposes of comparison (think of it as a "control group" for a study): I love this country. Seriously. I worship our founding fathers. I love our history - the things we did right were amazing, the things we did wrong (ie slavery) we later corrected. I read the US Constitution and the Declaration of Independence several times a week on average. I consider those documents, our founders, and many historical items and places sacred. I have the highest respect for our military - I am deeply grateful to them for what they have done. In the thousands and thousands of posts I've read here on USMB, I have observed the following universal truth. Liberals hate this country. Seriously. They hate our founders. They hate our history - constantly slamming the US for every decision it made from the Constitution to slavery to Iraq. They despise and reject the U.S. Constitution. They lie about it's creation and distort it's contents. They detest our military. They spit on those who serve (literally) and are constantly trying to gut the budget that provides our men and women with the tools, training, and benefits they earn and deserve. Despite what the angry liberal will say, these are not my words and this is not my opinion. This is what the liberal posts. Which raises this question: Why do liberals remain in a country they have so much deep seated hatred for? I detest their Communism/Marxism/Socialism. If the US were run like they want - like the former U.S.S.R., I would seriously just leave. I would. Why not live where you will be happy? Why stay where you are miserable? Cuba has every policy they believe in and has beautiful weather. Yet, you never see a liberal denounce their citizenship and go live in any of a number of countries that shares their ideology.
