Regarding your “Pick of the day” of Sunday, Oct. 6, (“Hate government? Then leave”):
What’s new? The ideology-driven rhetoric can be found in this publication, in one form or another, almost any day in the week. A distaste for big government equates to a lack of patriotism, and anyone who disagrees with that point of view should go elsewhere.
Allow me to offer a suggestion from another point of the political spectrum: Those folks who love big government more than they love their country or their fellow citizens are free to relocate to another nation that offers the all-pervasive government they desire.
Cuba comes readily to mind, but Russia is available, as are most European nations, and for the ultimate in government control, there is the People’s Republic of China. Enjoy!
