I wrote a big ol' rant about this on Friday, and the LJ client ate it via core dump. Suffice it to say that I am sick of being told that I have to rubber stamp every idiotic policy our idiotic president and his idiotic cronies propose to be a true American. What's more: I can be -- and am -- pro soldier while being anti-war. Dissent is a form of speech protected under the Bill of Rights -- at least until the powers that be manage to remove it as an obstacle to the 'war on terrah' (aka 're-election plan').
Am I automatically anti-American just for speaking out against those who speak out against those who speak out against US policy?
