Why do so many Americans hate America? And if they hate it so much why don't they just leave?


One thing that really bothers me is the way some Americans seem to hate everything about America. I'd just like to ask them: "If you hate everything about the country you live in then why are you living in it?" Any insights?

    Only free speech is slowly being outlawed. HR 347, for instance, makes it a felony at the discretion of some government officials. NDAA allows the government to throw you in jail for no reason. And Obama makes war without Congress. Treason!

    I'm afraid that America and its Constitution are being strangled as we speak (or write). Look at the work of Ben Swann, Judge Napolitano and other patriots. You have to stop looking at Corporate Party news to find truth.
