Are you one out of four Republicans?

Aha! I see it now Western Hunter, my appologies. You said a born US citizen and in skimming your post I thought you were worried about being a naturalized citizen and if you were covered by the Constitution.

Cutoff date for the draw was Tuesday, you apply in time?

Accumulating wealth IS the American Dream. You want wealth, too? Go out and earn some. But have enough dignity to do it yourself rather than leech off of the labors of others.

This is why socialism and communism have failed throughout history. If sitting on your butt gets you the same reward as busting it, people will sit on it -- and the nation descends into poverty.

My point proven. Socialism make you lazy, try actually reading instead of skimming next time.

I know I'm covered by the Constitution. How about you?

Poster above talking about accumulating wealth and working.

I assume you mean that by hiring people and making a profit off their labors I'm doing something bad? That's called capitalism isn't it? What do you want "to each according to his abilities and rewards according to his needs" or some such commy socialist claptrap?

I contiuously collect and deposit checks, and from my bank account I pay workers, insurance, advertising, fuel, overhead. And you get a multi colored government check right?

Commy

I'm talking about your Robin Hood model of redistributive economics, and the idea that the poor are somehow entitled to what the rich earned.
