'fraid so. I have to measure my words, though, otherwise I get accused of knee-jerk anti-americanism.

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman

I understand, same way anyone who is American is vilified by the right and their army of minions when we march, protest or say anything against the government/politicians.  Everyone loves their own country but anyone who also believes their own country and people can do no wrong end up in a downward spiral and will never be able to correct or change any kind of wrong doing/wrong thinking.

Bobby Kennedy liked to quote Camus who said 'I should like to be able to love my country and still love justice.'
