what is a "real" American, anyway?

America includes all of us.

"Real" America does not mean just the Republican party. This country was founded as a place where people could find refuge from the oppressiveness of other countries. Freedom of opinion and expression is its most important tenet.

I lean towards Democratic. My friends include electricians, house painters, teachers, janitors -- people who the McCain campaign would consider the salt of the earth -- and we are all voting for Obama. We were all born and raised here. We work our asses off to keep paying the mortgage and send our kids to school. We're all Joe the Plumber, except we actually have our own licenses, and we can't afford $250K to buy a business.

But because we're not Republicans we must be fake Americans.

I want to see T-shirts that read "Joe the Plumbers for Obama."

Edit: and here it is!!!
