“I love my country…but I think we should start seeing other people”

A popular bumper sticker for people with some disagreements with the United States is:

“I love my country...but I think we should start seeing other people.”

The bumper sticker has been cited in print since at least 2003.

Have you seen that sticker that goes
“I LOVE MY COUNTRY, BUT I THINK
WE SHOULD START SEEING OTHER PEOPLE” ?

Saw a bumper sticker on a vehicle when I was almost to my office at the University. This was the sort of commentary you would only see in the proximity of a typical college: pretentious and condescending, with not-very-well-disguised anti-American-proletarian sensibility.

The message: “I love my country, but I think we should start seeing other people.”
