    I can't think of anyone that is 100% happy with the way the country is going. I would hate to see the day when expressing this makes you un-American.
    That is exactly correct. The phrase is specifically tuned to shut down the ability to rationally process. Taken far enough, it can literally be used as a trigger - it's virtual brainwashing.

    And I wish I could say that I was kidding. However, applied psychology is well at work in these things... it is intentional. Just look for the chanting mechanics at any political rally, especially during speeches. It also washes away the ability to process rationally, IOW, intentionally designed to prevent proper consideration of the speeches being given.

    This is slightly different, however it follows the same principle. It categorizes a person or concept so that the individual nuances won't be processed.

    People who genuinely hate America usually are not American citizens to begin with. Unfortunately, people who love America but who holds the wrong ideas about how to change it do far more damage in the end.

    I don't think Obama hates the US, but I do think he's overly eager to suck European nutsacks.
    "We grow up thinking that´╗┐ beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are´╗┐ easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of´╗┐ a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Well, yes, exactly. Throughout history, people who love their countries tend to do infinitely more damage than people who hate them.
