    the reason so many of us have it relatively better than many others is because of our system of government, our Constitution.  It hurts our cause when people like you are so quick to throw that away.

    And, you can try and sound self-righteous all you want, but your way helps only those currently in power, user id 232224.  I'm a bit suspicious of your motives.

      But the reality is that the powerless don't care about your American principles or even your law.

      They care about whether you're doing what you should be to make sure the least insane American is living in the White House.

      Go overseas and tell the Haitians you're not going to vote for Obama because of the things in Appendix M and they'd look at you like you were a spoiled brat. They'd look at you like you were crazy.

      The reality is that you're the one being self-righteous, because you think your idealism about America's form of government is more important than real living breathing human beings.

      Ask people overseas if they think indefinite isolation, limiting sleep to 4 hours a  night, and stress positions is a reasonable issue to base your withholding of support of Obama on.

      Again, they'd look at you like you were a spoiled fat little American with a cozy nerf life who has the luxury to make such decisions from the comfort of their living room while they blog about it.

        the country, then, if you don't like the rules.  Glad I finally get to use that line.  I'm done with you.
