DU Doesn't Like America


From DU: If You Don't Like America...

In fact, I hate America, there, I said it.


Strike that, I hate what America has BECOME. This used to be the land of the free. No longer.This once was the home of the "brave".

Now, our populace has largely been reduced to sniveling cowards who exist (not live) in fear of the next "terrist attack" that Unca Boosh will protect you from. All you have to surrender is your very soul, your essential humanity, and out of that eminently foolish bargain, you, Mr. Rightist, get a wonderful false sense of "security", whatever that means in this ignoble year of our Lord (with all due sarcasm), Two Thousand and Seven.

This country is my enemy. This government is my enemy. And all too quickly, the PEOPLE of this once proud, honorable nation are becoming my enemy as well. I'm no spring chicken, I know of the atrocities perpetuated by the United States of America since our inception, but let's be honest, there is a fundamental, qualitative difference between past crises and the morass in which we are at present, collectively mired. This is a disaster of our own making. And by "our", I mean the Joe Sixpacks and 'Sally Housecoats' out there.

(snip)

I am ashamed, utterly mortified, to be of this country. I DO NOT believe that my labor should be used to perpetuate death and destruction of innocents any longer, so I'm making arrangements to leave, once and for all.

(snip)

For the record, "I hate this America, and the sooner I can get the FUCK out, the better."Again, there, I said it. I KNOW that I'm not the only one who feels this way. Those who are like-minded, stand with me. Your only other choice is silence. And silence is acquiescence. And acquiescence... I need say no more.I want out, the sooner the better. So to those who would all-too-quickly brand me an "America-hater", I say: You're right."So bankroll me and I'll be out of your hair once and for ALL... Oh, and a hearty "FUCK YOU!" while I'm at it.

DUers Chime In:

--I'm already making plans for Central America. Belize, Panama, or Costa Rica. And my wife is finally on board. I feel like a Jew in Germany in 1937.

--Let's just kick out all the Bush lovers. There are two of us for every one of them, and most of them are wimps.

--But where would you go? There are few if any places left on this planet that aren't touched by the New Amerikan Corporatocracy. And those places that do seem remote from its grasp will soon (if not already) be suffering from global warming, courtesy Amerika. Personally I agree with every word you wrote. I hate what this country has become. I hate that it started before I was born and that my eyes were ever opened to it, because the more I learn the less I see can be done to change things. The America I learned about in school is a fiction, or might as well be for how it contrasts with reality.If you find a place to go where you can escape the Global Empire, let me in on it.

-- I hate America under George Bush. This isn't the America I know and love. What the fuck kind of country preaches that they are the land of the free, yet will torture anyone they damn well please? Or warrantlessly spies on their own citizens? Or charges insane amounts of money for gas, yet refuses to raise the minimum wage? Or thinks universal health care is a bad idea? Or treats celebrities like royalty and gives tax cuts to the people who don't need it? This isn't the America I grew up with.

--I Hate *This* America Too. But I can't leave because I don't have the money. Actually, I heard that Vermont wants to secede. If it does, I'm moving to Vermont!

Think this stuff is 'cherry picked' (the Left's favorite excuse)? No, this is a variety of opinions, pulled from DU, by a large pool of posters. They are sandwiched in between various negative comments and death wishes for Vice President Cheney during his pacemaker operation later this summer...

This is what the Democrat party has become; if you vote for it, this is what you'll get.

Where do these stupid people come from? How can they look at the same things that I look at, and see it as all bad when I see it as all good? Doesn't make sense to me. I still see an honorable and repected and much loved country. This is the country that I live in. I don't know where du-ers live!

The left is not only illogical, they are contra-logical. Their corrosive emotions (most of which stem from a lack of power in their own lives, and thus an overreaction when their party doesn't get their way on the state or national stages) dissolve hold they had on rational thought. Thus, like Orwell they can be against free expression when it suits them, or say that it's not a free country yet protest to their hearts' delight, or any number of blatantly hypocritical things. Their anger, their powerlessness, and their sense of entitlement make for some very frustrated tyrants-in-training. Note that despite how much they hate America, they're not above asking us all for money to help them leave. It is truly breathtaking.

And please, let's not talk about "cherry picking" until someone can post all the text that demonstrates that you picked a few choice quotes. To this day, I have never seen such texts posted. Have you?
