He wants to change America, and not in a good way.

And where should Sorkin go, pray tell? North Korea, Cuba( Full disclosure: I enjoyed not just "The West Wing" but "A Few Good Men")? America is as much his country as it is Rush Limbaugh , Sean Hannity or Bill O'Reilly. The trouble with this "America, love it or leave it!" argument is that implies that some people have a greater claim to the US than others and that critics remain there only by sufferance- what about those"conservatives" who threatened to move to Canada just because they disapproved of the US Supreme Court upholding the ACA or the Texas governor who threatened secession when Obama was elected?

Don't have time to comment on the rest of the post, but I will ask you to check your facts
on this comment about Governor Perry. His out-of-context comment was in answer to a
reporter's dumb question.

N.Korea fine by me... be nice to see him leave. As for Texas secession from the union... if they do it.. i'd move there ASAP.

And what about all the libs that where saying if Bush got reelected they'd move to Canada. Now that would be sweet.

And here I thought that one of the great things about this country was the freedom to have your own opinion, whether it's popular or not.

Silly me.

Because he as much right to his views as the rest of us do.
