Yeah, many misguided Americans from our grandparent's generation thought the country was going to hell in a hand-basket in the 60s and 70s too; it didn't. The generation of sex-drugs-and-rock-and-roll grew up and got smarter too--just like always. Change is frightening to some people--but it's the one constant in life. Retreating to butter, guns, and the Bible makes you feel better, but it doesn't solve real world problems.

The right to bear arms is one thing; a veiled assasination threat, another.

Most importantly though, there is a big difference between a prosperous republic that ensures the general welfare of society through a safety net....and that boogie-man of Socialism that the far-right keep trotting out. Too bad so many WANT to believe the lies of the right... listening to the voices of cynical and self-serving sychophants of the plutocracy that has emerged in the last 15 years in this country.

If "Dittoheads" and "true Americans" want to see naive, they need to look in the mirror.
"America represents something universal ...'You can go to Japan to live, but you cannot become Japanese. You can go to France to live and not become a Frenchman..... 'Anybody.... can come to America to live and become an American.'"
--Ronald Reagan, 1988

"There’s not a liberal America and a conservative America. There’s the United States of America. There’s not a black America and white America and Latino America and Asian America....We are one people, all of us pledging allegiance to the stars and stripes, all of us defending the United States....”
--Barrack Obama, 2004
