    While 1776 - 1809 was the greatest era in U.S. history, the greatest era in world history was the 1980's. The Iron Lady, Margaret Thatcher, was leading England. Conservative Brian Mulroney was leading Canada. Pope John Paul II was in charge of the Catholic Church. And of course, the great Ronald Reagan was President here in the United States.

    We're seeing a global return to that era after left-wing socialism/communism destroyed the global economy, stripped the masses of liberty, and brought oppressive misery to the shores of almost every nation. First there was the stunning "Brexit" vote that restored sovereignty to England. Then there was the stunning landslide victory of Donald Trump over the establishment Hitlery Clinton. And now Marine Le Pen is on the verge of finishing the trifecta. It is an indictment on the failure of the left-wing ideology and a major rejection of it.

    If Marine Le Pen is able to win in the hard core left-wing nation of France, we will likely see an era of prosperity that we have not seen since the 1980's. With real leaders with backbones like President Trump and Marine Le Pen sitting in office, nations will be exponentially more secure and terrorists will be on the run. Economies will be exponentially better off which will result in innovation, better products and services, etc. And most of all - liberty will be restored and expanded.

    If I had to pick the greatest era in world history, I would say it was the Pax Romana during the years of Constantine The Great.

    Christianity had just conquered The Roman Empire and catholic doctrines were being framed in council.

    Everything that has happened since then was influenced by those times.

    Well if you're going by peace and prosperity, then the 90's and onward have been the greatest period in the history of humankind. But if you ask me, it was whenever the Vikings were fucking shit up. Go Odin!

    Constantine merged paganism with Christianity and called it Catholicism. The Reformation brought about by Martin Luther was the start of religious freedom.

    Martin Luther was the first person to say "meh, Christianity is too hard. Let me invent my own feel-good version." :laugh:

    Le pen is losing right now.

    That sounds like a communist speech. The kind USSR let loose until it died. But if you want to make a point, why not make it properly?

    That sounds all very nice and almost as if you read a book of some sort some time in your life, but maybe you should've read two. How was that time great and how would your proposed new order not make us a third world war and nothing else?

    I doubt Le Pen will win. Both the Liberals and Republicans will unify to vote against her. Of course despite my vote for Trump I figured that Hillary would win. So I've been wrong before.

    It was Christianity that conquered Europe and turned the bloodthirsty heathens there into peace loving human civilized peoples.

    Unfortunately there was also within Christianity a legacy of reprisal against Jews who had originally paid off Roman emperors to persecute and murder Christians.

    That debt was apparently not paid until after 1945.

    In more practical terms the Catholic Church changed their dogma on Jews by and large.
