Really, you're all mentally ill-- marching to all these labels that you're so quick to invoke. Obama is a marxist? Look around, government involvement is the rule, we're experiencing what deregulation fosters. You don't send a 3 year old out on a two wheeler w/o training wheels. Immoderation unchecked, is that what you call patriotic? Let the battle royale spit out the infirm and let them die in our wake. Patriotism -- does it have anything to do with people or just ...whatever works principles. You've got to quit listening to that fat man Limbaugh, he's got you all thinking like fundamentalist zealots. I imagine the rest of the world observes right wing zealots and just shakes their heads.
