Well, I think we are talking different things here. Whether or not I
choose to support RPA is a bit different than citizenship, don't you
think? You are suggesting that one should not dissent when one disagrees
and that any dissent requires one to renounce citizenship. I hold that
the United States was formed upon the basis of dissent. Remember, the
"patriots" of 1776 were dissenters rebelling against the legitimate,
established government of England. Today we label the people who
supported and remained loyal to the established government "royalists"
or "loyalists". It is interesting how the meaning of words drift with time.
In looking at various governments I have not found one that is better
than of the United States as defined by the Constitution and Bill of
Rights. OTOH, I am discomforted by the erosion of individual rights in
the US under the guise of "security" (DHS, TSA, etc.) and "safety" (FAA,
But that is not the purpose of this list. Let's just drop it. I have
said my piece.
