Republican Europe Bashing

Here's what Mike Huckabee said at the Republican convention last week :
John McCain offers specific ideas to respond to a need for change. But let me say there are some things we don't want to change: freedom, security, and the opportunity to prosper. Barack Obama's excellent adventure to Europe... (LAUGHTER) ... took his campaign for change to hundreds of thousands of people who don't even vote or pay taxes here. But let me hasten to say that it's not what he took there that concerns me. It's what he brought back: European ideas that give the government the chance to grab even more of our liberty and destroy our hard-earned livelihood. (video here)
This comes from the man who finished 2nd in the primaries.
The man must be right - surely Americans should be aware of the danger of European propaganda. They should probably not even travel to Europe. Who knows...? They might even get sick and get free health care there and even enjoy it.
Or worse, Europeans might even convince some Americans that government intervention in the private sector is a good thing. Because THAT would never happen in the land of the free. We'd never let anyone take our liberty to go bankgrupt... (not even if you're Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Bear Stearns, Lockheed Aircraft Corporation, the Penn Central Railroad, Chrysler.... etc .... or would we?) or "bomb, bomb, bomb"anyone we want.
