The uber patriots at FreeRepublic.com are especially bitter. You can tell by the general tone of the posts and doomsday thread titles like "Defeat in the War on Terror Is Now Almost Certain." They believe that our constitutional republic (or what's left of it) will give way to an Islamic theocracy. They are afraid that Mexicans will overrun America, that gays will start marrying and reproducing, and that abortion clinics will soon have drive-through service.
Well, suck it up, crybabies. You had your chance. You could have taken a principled stand against bigger, more expensive, more intrusive government, but you never did. You could have said, "Hell no, we won't go!" when you were asked to support an unconstitutional war against a nation that posed no threat to you. You could have stood up to the president as well as Republican and Democratic members of Congress when they used the Patriot Act to turn America into a police state.
And now you suddenly pretend to be concerned about the future of the nation? Give me a break.
