Great article right guy-
"Fabians believed in gradual nationalization of the economy through manipulation of the democratic process. Breaking away from the violent revolutionary socialists of their day, they thought that the only real way to effect "fundamental change" and "social justice" was through a mass movement of the working classes presided over by intellectual and cultural elites."

Excellent post, RightGuy! Simply excellent.
It is very unnerving to read posts from the left saying that rightwingers are hate mongers. The overwhelming majority of those on the right share the common emotion of 'love' for this country and oppose anything that threatens its security, culture, constitution and heritage.
I cannot say the same for many people on the left...ESPECIALLY our current President. Please don't blame me for this President because I voted for the one who is an American.

Let me take this one point at a time.
"Born in the USA" So I guess by your definition, if you've chosen this country and become a naturalized citizen, you can never be an American. Maybe you should say that directly to families whose sons, daughters, husbands, or wives have fought, and perhaps died, for this country. Tell them "thanks, you can die for this country, but you'll never be a true American". Oh, wait, you just did.
"Possessing a valid birth certificate from a location in the U.S. that is readily availaile for confirmation?" What do you consider a "valid birth certificate"? Are you excluding Alaska and Hawaii as locations in the US?
"Descending from parents who are Americans?" So, that would be any Native American, right? Unless you're descended from the "people", everyone else came from somewhere else.
"Supports America's values" I really wonder, based on your comments, what you consider "America's values".
"and doesn't bad mouth our country or apologize for our greatness?" We're supposed to be the good guys, leaders in the world. You know, the ones in the white hats. When we have leaders making decisions that seriously impact our good guy status, we need to, no, are obligated, to speak up, and loudly.
"Doesn't want to drag us down to the level of 3rd world country?" What is your definition of a third world country? Have you actually been to a third world country? Vacationing in Mexico doesn't count. I don't think you can compare life anywhere in this country, especially not Pleasanton, to life in, oh say, Rwanda, for example. Or would you?
