What you are not understanding, TPC, is that objectivity and clear thought are unpatriotic.
If you would delude your mind into believing "socialism is bad" and "military is good," and disregard that military economics are the dictionary definition of socialism, then you would be closer to understanding what they are talking about.
If you are capable of hitting that level, then maybe you could reach further and understand that entitlements are bad, except the ones you may get, which should not be considered entitlements. So, for old people, Social Security and Medicare are not entitlements, to the retired military person military retirement is not an entitlement, and so forth.
If you can delude yourself into believing that level of crap, then you should be able to reach further and convince yourself that all our forefathers who came to this country for religious freedom did so in order for us to be Christians. There is something in the Bible about judging others, so it must be okay for us to do it.
Perhaps then you will be able to add prejudice against immigrants to your repertoire. Stephen Colbert probably said it best: "(Our) grandfathers did not sail across an ocean to come to a land overrun by immigrants."
Finally, you may be able to gain an understanding of the Constitution. The parts about search, seizure, and rights to jury trials don't apply to people accused of crimes. If they wanted those rights, they shouldn't have been accused of a crime. The part about cruel and unusual punishment doesn't apply to those who are convicted of crimes. Cops are always right. Law breakers are always wrong. That is what our tax dodging, authority shooting forefathers meant, and not literal interpretation like those damn liberals would have you believe.
If you feel you are incapable of reaching that level of understanding, perhaps a lobotomy would help.
