    In principle Sam was a Cap who picks a side politically speaking, where as Rogers always straddled the line.

    I didn't mind that as an idea, I simply objected to how Nick spencer used it, and Sam became the proxy by which Spencer expressed his own political opinions - or at least the stories and environments that Spencer put him in.

I think the dilemma Sam ran into:

1. You can't be political and be Captain America

2. Why would you want to be Captain America unless you could be political and fight for positive change?

At the end of the day Sam sort of showed how worthless the whole mantle is. You can only be a symbol in a lame meaningless stand for nothing sort of way. Speak out and voice your politics and you're unfit to be Captain America.
