    ^ This, basically.

    Also, I do not think I've ever referred to any President as "my" President.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    I consider all of the United States my country including Texas.

    I consider Los Angeles just being under occupation by foreign invaders.

    Deal with it.
    Is that your version of, "America - love it or leave it"? Obama - love him or leave the country?

    As for GOP money, we already know that love it or leave it applies here..
    It means the GOP skips the USA with their money after earning it here and become a GOP tax scofflaw..

    I occasionally hear people say, "President <insert name here> is not MY President!" Usually by people who intensely dislike the current President. To me, this places party loyalty, and to a lesser extent ideology, above country.

    Have you ever had such sentiments?
    Actually, is it really bad to place ideology above country? If the US (or more acurately, those acting under the color of US authority) say, started systematically searching houses looking for guns to confiscate that would run directly counter to my ideology and I would not change my ideology just because it's the US doing it. I might even be actively disobedient.

    You mean something like this?

    John Kerry Saves $500,000 By Docking 76-Foot Luxury Yacht Out Of State

    Can't say I blame Kerry a bit.
