MIGHT HELP...:

Republicans are blinded by love: Lefties just don't have the same feeling about America as the hard right does. (Joel Stein, December 26, 2008, LA Times)

[I]'ve come to believe conservatives are right. They do love America more. Sure, we liberals claim that our love is deeper because we seek to improve the United States by pointing out its flaws. But calling your wife fat isn't love. [...]

Conservatives feel personally blessed to have been born in the only country worth living in. I, on the other hand, just feel lucky to have grown up in a wealthy democracy. If it had been Australia, Britain, Ireland, Canada, Italy, Spain, France, Luxembourg, Belgium, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Japan, Israel or one of those Scandinavian countries with more relaxed attitudes toward sex, that would have been fine with me too.


...to try and pick a country that we didn't liberate, defend or create.
