    Oh yes they did.

    When reactionaries jeer at those of us who want to improve the country, telling us to "go back to where you came from" (eastern Washington, presumably) or "America: Love It Or Leave It," that is exactly what they are saying. This country is perfect the way it is, the pinnacle of human civilization. It cannot be improved and anyone who tries is tampering with perfection - nay, with Divine will!

    Maybe no one who thinks about such things thinks the system isn't flawed. But there are people out there who don't do a lot of thinking.

    You and I are going to spend our sunset years telling our children's children what it was once like in America when 25% of the population was batshit insane.
