Love it or leave it

EDITOR: I'm old enough to remember when left-wing Democrats were complaining about all the wars and other problems in our country about 50 years ago. The Republicans had a great retort: "America. Love it or leave it."

Now right-wing Republicans are complaining: Get rid of the government. Secede from the union. Why don't they just "love it or leave it"?

Mitt Romney offered an even better slogan: Why don't they just "self-deport"?
