    Its not the water but Christian Far Right dogma used to justify anything that forwards their narrow view of the world around them. But this takes the cake. By 6th grade the average kid should know that the pilgrims came here so they could worship as they pleased. The congressmans Idea of their wanting to escape socialism is totally off base, back then socialism didn't even exist, but in this congressmans mind, throw a little religion in with a patriotic story and use it to make a jab at socialism to influence his uninformed listeners, and its the perfect combination to get religious people to back him.

    Oh, how enlightening, more new history to go along with MLK was a member of the Black Panthers, Nixon was a man of honor, and there was no slave trade but instead an Atlantic Triangular Trade of free enterprise.

    I think he's just quoting Rush Limbaugh.
