    And liberals and moderates feel free to chime in also.

    I see a lot of flag waving and hear a lot of oh say can you see from the right. I hear a lot about how contemporary Democrats are socialists, the conflation of course being that they are in fact communists, hence the sworn enemy of "our way of life." There's a general aire of the right claiming patriotism and love of freedom for their own; Eg, Hannity's "You're a great American," et al. Most of you claim the founders for your own.

    So I pose a number of questions in varying degrees of intensity. Can any of the following people be "Great Americans?" Can some or any of them be patriotic, and love America and freedom just as much as you?

    1. Any liberal Democrat?

    2. Any Obama supporter?

    3. A proponent of single-payer healthcare?

    4. A gay, pro-choice, card-carrying ACLU contributor who supports raising top tax rate to 70%?

    Ok... Ready... Go.

    No to all, though why you threw in Gay I have no idea. I have no problem with gay people and yes even an abnormal person like a gay person can be a great American.

    Thievery (raising taxes to ridiculous rates) is un-American.

    Would you say then, that we've been guilty of thievery for the vast majority of our post war history?

    Needless to say, I don't view it as thievery, but semantics aside; is this thievery not responsible for at least some of our greatness?

    Yeah Big Guy anybody CAN , the question is WILL THEY ? the citizenry needs to put all these petty differences aside and UNITE to make the politicians fear the citizenry once again and the fringe progressives and neocons be damned in the process .....

    "When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty. "-- Thomas Jefferson

    All you idiots that want to make the gub'mint the ultimate purveyor of fear need to pull your heads out of your rear ends and get with the program 'cause you're on the wrong side.

    RISE UP!
