Someone asked, “Why do liberals hate America?” This response from a 10-year US Marines veteran is GOLD: “Let me ask a better question: Why do you hate the United States?
“I’ve been examining this odd idea that comes from the right that they have some kind of monopoly on patriotism for some time. The more I examine it, the more I see how little water it holds.
Liberals don’t hate America. Liberals love what America is and can be.
Conservatives wearing red hats with white writing love some strange perception they have of what it was at some point in the past.
In general, though, conservatives do love America. This is true.
But liberals do as well. The thing is, though, it’s a different kind of love”

I disagree. The current crop of conservatives don’t have the capacity to love the country. They have been swallowed up by the quest for power over others and money. Compassion and care for those less fortunate is a lost virtue.
Most of the current crop of elected conservatives most directly involved with propping Trump up look like they have given up and thrown caution to the wind. The MAGA base all by itself is not enough to reelect Trump but that base is all Trump and anyone tied to him. It’s a form of wreckless and soulless abandon.
