Could it be that some modern Republicans really don't believe in America; that they are driven entirely by their own ideology? Could it be that this is pervasive and the reason we saw such a reckless disregard for Constitutional Law, under Bush? Out of frustration, many liberals and independents wanted to leave the country when Bush was re-elected in 2004. It seems that given that same frustration [Obama has only been in office for 90+ days], these Republicans would rather destroy the country and start a civil war.
