    Specifically, RELIGIOUS freedom.

    Had it not been for religious persecution in England, its quite possible this country may have never been formed.

    They didn't run away from GB to go start up companies and make becoup money morans...they ran away from GB to be FREE to practive their own RELIGION.

    What the hell is wrong with you Right-Wing Nutjobs? Isn't your party the party of self-proclaimed Christians?

    Damned neo-cons...the lot of you.

    Its not God, and its certainly NOT what the founding fathers intended to base this country on.

    It was a by-product, a side-bar of their intentions.

    Let you Neo-Cons and self-proclaimed tea-baggers tell it, its the end-all and be-all of this nation.

    HOGWASH!

    You are entirely stupid.

    This nation was born of a lot of different things, you idiot.

    Yes, a desire to achieve religious freedom WAS a part of it.

    But a desire for SELF-determination was another.

    The desire for LIBERTY was paramount and ...

    only tools like you are unable to grasp that a significant part of liberty entails economic liberty and property rights. Neither of those things is consistent with socialism or Marxism. Both of them are consistent, however, with capitalism.

    I'm glad you finally agree that this nation was founded on religious freedom but freedom is not a mandate on anyone. The freedom of religions may demand that we be good and moral people and perhaps help the poor but what if I am not of that faith or of any faith whatsoever. Should I not be able to decide what my religions morally compells me to do about those issues or should that be decided by my government? What if my faith demands me to horde every ounce of money I have? Should the state be able to undo my religion? What if I worship satan? What should I do then?

    Do you see the intersection between our freedom of religion when the state begins to see itself as the moral authority over people's lives?

    I may be stupid, but not a FOOL like you.

    The nation was built as a DIRECT result of RELIGIOUS FREEDOM!

    Why did the pilgrims leave Great Britain MORAN?

    Was it to form Corporations?

    Was it to open up some shoe cobbling shop?

    Was it to sell beer? Tea bags?

    Snap out of it you partisan hack!!

    Stop being such a FOOL!

    "That I finally agree that it was built on freedom of religion?"

    What kind of NONSENSE are you saying?

    Do you even KNOW what you're saying?

    Present your Neo-Con HACKS with hard FACTS and watch your arguments CRUMBLE.

    Can't stand Neo-Cons, they really are a bunch of FOOLS!

    America was built on a genocidal overthrow of a nation.
    They got their real estate just like IsNtReal is doing today.
    Then they bought/captured slaves to do all of the work.
    Gawd Blass Murka ! One Nation under Gawd ! With liberty and justice for all, 'cept them thar ******* and red savages.

    Maybe that's the reason for the silence about IsNtReal from Murkastan and it's inbred cousins, the Queen worshipers ? Pot can't call kettle black ?
