My niece is a Socialist. She will not admit it and vehemently denies this when I call her one. Obozo isn't a Socialist and he just wants to make America more equal. I said we have equal opportunity, but that doesn't guarantee equal results. To that she agrees, but went off about "rich people" not paying taxes to support public schools and sending their kids to private school, which she apparently considers some sort of crime against the poor. She is toatlly in Obozo's control and I'm just a gun hugging dork. I told her that people that send their kids to private school, pay their kids tuition to said private school AND their taxes to the local substandard, Gov't run, poor teacher perfoming ISD. She wants equal RESULTS which I told her is one of Marx's major tenents right next to the redistribution of wealth. She will not admit that Obozo is a radical Socialist and told me that Reaganomics was "revisionist history" and the reason we are in this current mess, naturally with Bush's 8 years and Clinton's as well. I'm trying to get her to come to Texas because 70% of all new jobs in 2008 were created in the Lone Star State (Republic of Texas) When I make secesh talk, she calls me a dork. I told her after we sec.ede, I might be able to get her through the check point, but only if she drops the Socialist Ideaology. I can't make any headway with her. At least she and I can discuss it until we are both shouting (I woke my wife from her Sunday nap ) and we decide to disagree. I had to leave the house and go to the local internet cafe to talk to some "RIGHT" minded folks!! Her sister either hangs up, leaves the room or blocks my e-mails ROTFLMAO It frustrates the hell out of me and I can't get through to her that the American dream is not a right. This great nation is in trouble because of wrong headed thinking like this. And to think, should it come down to it, that I would lay down my life to save it from the wrong ideas of my own family. Sounds like ci.vil wa.r all over again. I am at a loss trying to disuade her from thinking that he is her Messiah. She won't read links I send her that are well thought out and she wouldn't read "Libert & Tyranny" if I sent it to her. I think I'm going to write her personal e-mails with excerpts from L&T and not tell her it's from an evil conservative talk show host! Thanks, I needed to vent and rant. Forgive my spelling, for some reason the spell check isn't working on this CPU. I hope one day she will wake up before it's too late, but I think that is a pipe dream. She will change her mind when I kill a Unicorn in the Hill Country.
