I sincerely hope this is the last I'll ever hear of

Mr. "I grew up in a socialist country and that's why I'm a Republican" Thomas Peterffey.

All those millions in ads and nothing to show for it. Poor Thomas.

1. I hated those ads too! Kept seeing them on YouTube. Every time I saw them, I thought

oh c'mon man, that was under the USSR-controlled Hungary, not remotely like the socialist countries of Western Europe.

5. Why Don't Republicans Know the Definition of Socialism?

We have had a progressive tax rate for a long time. The rates on the various brackets have varied wildly. At one point the top rate was over 70%. Yet Obama proposes increasing the highest rate by 3% to what it was under Clinton 39% and they scream socialism. The rich will be poorer by a piddly 3% tax rate increase???

That's the problem in this country. These guys are fighting socialism but we're not socialists. They refuse to listen to reason.
