David Harsanyi, Denver Post Columnist asks, “Is dissent still patriotic?”
Do all Americans truly have a yearning to fundamentally “remake” our nation? There must be a subversive minority out there that still believes the United States — even with its imperfections and sporadic recessions — is, in context, still a wildly prosperous and free country worth preserving.
And that’s one of my big problems with the left. I think the US, despite many things I disagree with, is the pinnacle of civilization so far. To place it in moral equivalency with evil regimes and kleptocracies is intellectually dishonest.
