    I feel really sad for this country because the concepty of individualsim and the liberty that goes with it has been squashed completely. Look at how many people have to justify their actions to their leaders and to the political process as something that either benefits the whole or is politically correct in some way. It is no longer acceptable that a person can do things on their own merits for themselves or to even to hold an idea that isn't inline with PC doctrine without have to justify it in PC terms so one will not be "judged".

    To sum it up, this country is not free or at least not free on the individual level.

    If you hate America so much then don't let the door hit you on the ass on the way out.

    I said I feel sad for the society that had developed into a socialist way of thinking. I did not say I hated my fellow Americans because if I was a liberal I would have added that all Americans are evil murderers because of some either slavery or vietnam and that is not what I said.

    Its the way of thinking that imprisons the mind from being what it wants hence denying the individual the power to choose his/her own personality and have that be chosen for them by the political process.

    Yes I feel sad for my fellow Americans...I do not hate them.

    Which ones. Be specific. Find some aspect of the patriot act that you have a problem with and we can discuss whether or not it violates the constitution.

    2 of the main telecom/net carrier companies were let off thw hook for violating federal privacy laws under the Bush administration.

    So do laws really matter? Or is it all politics and lobbyists?

    God Bless America,
    Land that I love.
    Stand beside her, and guide her
    Thru the night with a light from above.
    From the mountains, to the prairies,
    To the oceans, white with foam
    God bless America, My home sweet home.

    Wimpy loser......If you don't love your country....just leave
