    Jindal was born in the USA (of immigrant parents), and I would argue that he is a "real American" simply from the way he thinks and acts. Imo, a "real American" is defined by acceptance of the American ideals set forth in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution more than it is by circumstances of birth.

    Yep, Piyush is an American -- just like Obama.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Definitely not "just like Obama" -- that would make him a dishonest Chicago pol with a murky past and a forked tongue, determined to remake the US into a third-rate country.
