A few thoughts on people wanting change and their critics

I’m always baffled as to how certain Amercains attack people who want to change certain aspects of their government and country with such comments as “if you hate the country so much, why don’t you leave” and calling them unpatriotic.

Don’t you see, it is exactly because people love their country that they want to change things, to make it even better for themselves and their fellow citizens (re: the Constitution: “to form a more perfect union” (my emphasis)).

A question for you: If someone you love becomes an alcoholic, do you help them get on the right track or do you leave them be?
