I’m an anti-American American, I guess.

Not long ago, opposing the President was considered un-American. Now, supporting the President is un-American. Blood for Oil was patriotic; now, clean energy is treasonous. What the Tea Party calls “ObamaCare” is communist, even though the Bob Dole led Senate Republicans proposed the very same thing back in 1994. In fact, check out this post, which shows Barack Obama is even more conservative than Richard Nixon was.

Yet, I recently received this comment:

You Liberals are NOT of the body of America, much in the same way as an infection is in the body but not of it. You are, in point of fact, the domestic enemies I swore an oath to defend this country against.

We’ve been told, many times, that America is not a democracy, we’re a republic. Just like the People’s Republic of China and the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. Despite this truth, it was Republican George W. Bush’s doctrine to spread democracy, by force if necessary. His father’s dream was a one-world government – the New World Order – remember? Which of these leaders was a “domestic enemy”?

I don’t want to be an enemy of the state. I don’t even know when I became one. Hell, in high school, I won the Citizenship Award, and my beliefs are the same now as they were then. But that was a long, long, time ago…

    I salute you for sticking to your principles, and no they don’t make you “un-American”. However, be intellectually honest about what you support. Don’t hide behind Richard Nixon and Bob Dole, as if mistakes made by those men excuse the radical Marxist agenda being pursued by Obama.

    You didn’t mention it, but Nixon imposed wage and price controls, which is one of the most un-American and anti-capitalist acts in the history of the Republic. Who cares that he was a Republican; it doesn’t matter. Bad policy is bad policy, and Obamacare is bad policy, as anyone in the UK or Israel can tell you.

    Obamacare has a fascist requirement for all citizens to buy health insurance in order to subsidize, in true socialist style, the 30 million who have not had insurance but soon will. The public option is part two of Obama’s plan, and it is no secret. There are many YouTube videos (check out Paul Krugman, for example) in which Democrats state very clearly that full-on socialized medicine could only be forced down the throats of Americans if done in two steps. This is socialized medicine, so just admit it and don’t try to be slick in passing it off as something else.

      I absolutely support a public option. I didn’t mean to slip anything by, it just wasn’t the main focus of my post.
      Thank you for being fair. It’s quite refreshing.

        It’s never un-American to stand by what you believe and to support it and be vocal about it. Unfortunately, we are at some sort of crossroads in this country and the right is going far right and the left is going far left. I wholeheartedly agree with your statements about the two Bushes. Where I stand, both political parties have failed immensely. Being a libertarian, my ideals get lumped in with the conservative sect but then when they’re confronted with the fundamentals of my stance, they think it is too extreme. The liberals typically don’t even want to hear it. Neither of them wants to hear anything from each other. It’s gotten to a point where real discussions, debates and sharing ideas to come up with a common solution are a thing of the past and have been replaced with bickering and just taking extreme measures to counteract what the other party is saying or doing.
