She sounds like an old school, economic and personal freedom conservative. I like.

I find a lot of truth in this, AB.  Unfortunate that it is changing.. the prolotariate is winning.  The more highly educated we become the more Europeanized we become.

I see what we have now is a complete inversion of what she said. One of the things I always hated about Pat Buchanan and those like him in describing the US is being a 'Eurocentric' culture. We aren't. We are very unique and the foundation of our culture was to throw off much of European culture.

Exactly... want to see the differences read what EC asks us...with all due respect to EC... but we are a curiosity to Europeans who are so used to a Socialist society.. They really don't understand why most of us cheered John Wayne or RR... but that is what makes us different.... or "did"
