    Thank you Mr. Peterffy for your story. I was born here and feel ashamed for being asleep for far to long to let this happen. May we take back this country for your sake. Voting for a more responsible America to continue your dream. Yours truly America!

    That people do not learn from history, I totally agree with. However, I must mention that recently I was listening to an elderly Holocaust survivor. She is deeply concerned by the attempts to ‘clean up’ the voter rolls, and limit times to vote or access to polling places that she is seeing. This is also a historical pattern that needs to be remembered.

    Please Mr. Peterffy, play this spot everywhere you can. This is such an important message and Americans that were born here don’t understand what the slide to Socialism means for a society and Americans DO NOT think that Socialism is even close to a possibility here in the USA. And Politicians with a Socialist agenda (from the Cloward and Pivien socialist playbook . . . look them up and read their book!!) want to SNEAK Socialism in just a bit at a time so that people don’t really see what is happening. But once there it is very difficult to turn back to Democracy. Thank you so much for sharing your story!!! You are a True’er American than many people I know Mr. Peterffy.
