I'll respond to your eccentric questions

I don't live in an etherial fantasy world where everybody gets along. That's humanism. I recognize that as a citizen of a society I have to abide by some rules. I appreciate my civil rights and don't want them infringed upon.

Wherever did you get that idea? Live free or die bitch. I don't feel restricted or opressed yet but I recognize some serious issues with the constitution. I'm totally opposed to Obamacare and feel it is detrimental to the economy in measurable ways.

I don't know what you think we are hated for why don't you explain it. Name a freer or greater country and tell me why you don't go there if it's so bad here. You're free to do so.
The actions of sovereign nations are complex; we're involved in the world, and I don't know if you advocate a total laissez faire policy. If so, how do you think the turmoil quotient will react? Instant world peace or something? You don't seem to recognize that the whole world does actually hate us and in particular radical islam that is more determined than ever to militarize and violently oppose us. I don't want war, just peace through superior firepower.
