I guess you must be speaking about the moron tea baggers.

The Tea Party is gaining momentum, as more and more people realize that Obama's socialist and redistribution of wealth from those who have earned it to those who have not, is not what our great country was founded on. May day is actually a socialist holiday, celebrating Marxism principles of communist countries. I am confident that real Americans realize what a threat his ideology is to our country, and he will not be a two term President.

What, pray tell, is a "real American?" If my views differ from yours, if I voted for Obama and agree with many of his views (which I don't consider socialist...just ask a true Socialist about that), am I not a real American? I believe my first ancestor came to this country sometime around 1580. But then again, I consider Obama, and even recently naturalized immigrants to be every bit as American as I am. Whatever their political views. Why do Tea Partiers think they are MORE American? Seems like pretty un-American attitude to me.

Curious: What is a "true socialist"? Is is someone whose primary economic principles favor a redistribution of wealth, from those who have earned it, to those who have not? Is is someone who on the record has stated that rather than a free market approach, he favors the government telling businesses how much profit they can make? Is is someone who mandates free healthcare be socialized by those already paying for their own healthcare? Is is someone who steals a well known socialistic mantra, "Yes We Can" as his political slogan? If the sickle fits, wear it!

A note to Curious...just ignore "American"...his sanctimonious babble is kind of amusing but not really worth responding to. I'm glad there is a political party for folks like him so they can all congregate and practice their intolerance amongst themselves and leave the rest of us alone.
