How do you define a "Real American"?
What church they attend?
How long the family has been here?
Voter ID card/party affiliation?
During a recent exchange on FB with an in-law over a "God Bless America or F**king Leave" post, I asked if it bothered her at all that so many were advocating running anyone different out of the country (some worse). Her response to me was "You are not a true American, you have no right to be here, if you don't like it being a Christian country you need to leave"
FYI: born and raised in the US in a family that goes back to the cracking of the Liberty Bell (CJ John Marshall is an ancestor).

My ancestors have been here since 1670 and I have had NUMEROUS people tell me that because I'm an Atheist who has a problem with the Christian god being all up in the government and I feel there should be stricter regulations on guns, that I should get the hell out. I'm called unpatriotic and un-American (even though I served in the Army for 4 years).

IMO A real American is a citizen. (others maybe striving to be Americans but are not yet)IMO. A true American believes and defends the constitution, to the death if necessary. A true American strives for a better America for all its citizen. It has nothing to do with race or color or religion. It has nothing to do with sex or poi tics or age or how long you or your line has beenlegal citizens.
