    Some of my beliefs are considered authoritarian so I know what your saying.

    For instance, I'm staunchly against universal voting rights, to the extent that I want them severely regulated.

    There's a difference.

    American's aren't socialists.


    The people that voted for Obama may think they're American, but since they don't recognize the American values of self-reliance, freedom, and justice, they're not Americans.
    I'm an American and a socialist as well. the problem with Obama is that he is not a socialist but he is a fine president anyway. You may want to look up the difference between social programs and a socialistic government. Has Obama asked you for all the land yet? I don't think he will so he is not a socialist. Thanks

    Last I heard, he was a socialist AND a fascist. Neat trick!

    How is he a "fine president"? Most of his administration's fiscal policies are going to be devastating to the economy, to the point where they could be (probably will be) irreversible.

    Not.

    One.

    American.

    Voted.

    For.

    Obama.

    The logical corollary is, thereforre, that people who voted for Obama weren't Americans. As I pointed out, already, they may have been US citizens, but that doesn't make them Americans.

    Nope. Not possible. Americans do not believe in stealing. Socialists can't achieve their policy goals without stealing. therefore, American socialists do not exist.

    He's a socailist and a boob of a president, rivalling Jimmy Carter in his incompetence.

    You may want to read the Constitution, where you can learn that the government isn't allowed to run social programs.

    I don't think Obama has my telephone number. Stealing people's money to fund unconstitutional social programs....socialism.

    It is only an insult if one strives to adhere to Scarecrow's subjective (and therefore irrelevant) definition of "American".

    I've stated facts.

    Do you feel insulted when people state facts?
