Why does the right wing insist this is "their" country?

    It strikes me as odd that the right insists they are the only true patriots.

    Only they follow the constitution or can appreciate it.

    They know who the "real" Americans are.

    They are the only ones who really "love" this country.

    I seem to hear that message whenever Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin, Newt Gingrich or anyone else on the right speaks. They say the things they do because they "KNOW".

    How did they become so "enlightened"?

    Probably for the same reason far left wackaloons like you keep insisting this is "your" country.

    Because we live here and love the values of freedom, self determination, and self government that this country stands for.

    Which is so odd considering that the right seems to be against civil rights. Not just for blacks, but for Hispanics, women, gays, atheists and others.

    Their policies are designed to harm America. How do we know? Just look at the last 10 years.

    It's a shame really.

    I think FDR's Tuskegee Experiments and LBJ calling his own SCOTUS pick a ****** shows where Dems fall out on Civil Rights

    It is my country. It's yours too though. It really isn't all that complicated. You're just over-analyzing.
