“I’m worried that I will be the last Republican president.” - George W. Bush
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
I also know many conservatives who refused to go to war or to die for their country. I also know many conservatives who don't fly a flag, pray in a bible, etc.
I also know liberals that are anti american, and I know conservative facist groups that are anti american.
The thing about all this is that many veterans don't mind either way because they put on the uniform and protect this country, so liberals and conservative can have these beliefs. When me and mine choose to serve, we did not care what either group felt.
Pidegon hole charactures are made by those who refuse to see past their own beliefs.
It is better to die on your feet than to live on your knees.
Haven't we beat this horse enough?
"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)

I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
