But why is it that conservatives, when they are unhappy with what our government is doing, wave the flag and declare themselves ashamed of our president, while liberals, when they are in the same position, burn the flag and declare themselves ashamed of America? [...] The conservative speaks of all the good things America is, and wants to defend them. The liberal loves all the things America is not: a nation with universal health-care, ever more "progressive" taxes, subservient to the United Nations; a nation with no guns in private hands, a nation you could traverse from coast to coast and never hear the name of God. If you love all the things America is not, and care more for them than for all the things she is, then, no: you don't love America. Not really.
