    Reading through many of these threads it strikes me as somewhat peculiar to see so many self-identified republicans hoping (even praying) that Obama fails miserably and that America is befallen by an economic catastrophe of never-before-seen epic proportions. Isn't the only logical conclusion that they must hate America? What other reason could they have to so desperately hope for Americans to suffer more than we've ever suffered before?

    Perhaps it is because your argument rests on straw-man, faulty premise. You hoped Bush failed didn't you? Well my friend, it is obviously YOU that hates Americans. Maybe rephrase to make this thread slightly less ridiculous.

    You can start with any threads started by KMAN or Sinatra.

    Then come back here and tell me my premise is faulty. :eusa_whistle:

    I'm for the principals that the party was founded on. If America isn't that anymore, then it's time to move on. I will be marching on April 15th. I know many more will join me.

    My question would be "Do our elected representatives hate America?" As I see it, they do.

    I think the way it works is this...if you disagree with any Republican policy, you hate America. If you wish for Obama to fail, you love America. And lately it seems if you disagree with Rush Limbaugh AND you are a Republican, you hate America. If you live in the small pockets where "real" Americans live you love real America and hate false America...which is the majority of America but that doesn't mean you are being unpatriotic.

    It's kind of confusing.

    Why...aren't you one of the ones that gets back more than you pay in? If so, why are you marching to protect high income from being taxed?
