    Hell no. They don't want my kind around. Too independent and hard-headed...

    and then exacting from the contributors--to whom a little means so much--a double share to guard the treasure!

    Not where it matters. Both represent large, intrusive, governments.

    Absolutely. Ol' GWB jumped the gun on that one. I never did understand the need to go beyond the CIA (External) and the FBI (Internal).

    My father is Russian and my mother was Romanian, and are both naturalized American citizens_

    My brothers and I are 1st generation American Citizens and we were all raised to be devout capitalist_

    My family has prospered under Capitalism which can only be done through party affiliation under Communism_

    A two class pyramid: A large Proletariat labor class at the bottom and several levels of Party Elites at the top_

    The politics of socialism/communism/marxism is the most corrupt on earth and more greedy than any corporation_
    When a crime is ignored ~ it becomes flagrant;
    When a crime is rewarded ~ it becomes epidemic:

    I'm thinking maybe including John Adams, Abraham Lincoln, and Woodrow Wilson as well.

    Our whole nation must be socialist!
