This country was founded based on questioning authority and rebelling against the Brits.
Besides the immigration issue, I think the country is doing well! nobody wants a war, but when it comes to our own survival,..I think it is pretty much justified!
As for questioning authority,...we the people are the authority,...c'mon, be real,.....England had a King at the time who was not voted into "office", and nobody had a right to question him,......... unlike today's society in the U.S.

To be honest, your analogy is off.

"Blind Allegiance?"
