What does "America: Love it or leave it!" really mean?

"leave" can have two meanings:

-- to depart

-- to desist

So what do you think? Does it mean "go away if you don't love America" or does it mean "you can love it or not love it"?

    Basically it means the speaker is an idiot.

    It does NOT mean: "you can love it or not love it".

    It means: Love it. If you don't want to love it, then leave. Go. Don't stay.

    In rougher words:

    If you don't like it, then get the hell out!

    I think it's similar to "do it or leave it."

    In what English dictionary is the word "leave" defined as "desist"?

    I suggest your premise is faulty.

    Well most of us can't leave it. We don't just get to snap our fingers and have a life somewhere else. The only place that would take me is Mexico, and yeah that's worse. Canada wouldn't let me in lol. But just because I don't wanna go to a third world country, doesn't mean I can't point out how stupid our country is. I'm not here to ruffle feathers and hurt feelings. I just am who I am. I can respect troops and disagree with wars at the same time. I can be pro gun and pro choice at the same time. I can sympathize with problems of minorities, and be proud to be white at the same time.

    I can be a normal human being who respects and treats others with the same respect I would myself. And that's why me and politics don't mix. I'm looking to knock down barriers, not create more.

    False Dilemma/False Dichotomy

    This line of reasoning fails by limiting the options to two when there are in fact more options to choose from.

    America, love it, or help fix it.
