As bad as I think it is here sometimes, I then step back and try and think what is it like for those who don't have the freedom's we do.
I have to agree with this, but I also have to put forth that anything can be improved on, including our existing freedoms (that are being attacked day by day). One day, you might thank these people for creating a place where you can escape some particular oppression that ends up haunting you. Who knows?

In my (biased) opinion, if some people are dissatisfied with the state or direction of the current system, rather than begrudge them into compliance, I applaud them for peacefully taking the matter into their own hands. Finding an innovative solution to political problems of the day was one of the first triumphs of the American spirit, and I'm glad to see it being carried forth.
