    This is a concept that I learned when I was itty and bitty.. It also happens to be a concept in our pledge of alligence..

    So are we? Are we one nation??

    I have been on these boards a couple of months now and I can't say that I see that we are..

    Conservatives are hell bent on doing everything they can to hate and stop liberals from doing anything.. There is no sense of team spirit what so ever.. To be fair, some liberals aren't much better..

    Gay marriage?? Are not homosexuals americans?? Do they not deserve the same rights and privileges as the rest of us.. They do not have the same rights and privileges as straight people do.. Straight people can marry who they are in love with.. Homosexuals can't.. There is a difference..

    Abortion? The bottom line here is that it is currently legal.. Roe V. Wade made it legal and that is the current law of the land.. So to hold a current healthcare bill back because of funding for abortion is stupid.. It is the law, and that is the way it is..

    Obama?? What has this person done to any of you to deserve your hatred and disrespect? He is your president and that is the simple truth.. It is your duty as an american to do anything you can to help him and this government to succeed.. If our government succeeds, then we succeed.. Lower taxes isn't the solution for everything.. That isn't to say that raising them is either.. But our government can't run on air.. It needs funding..

    Religion is a major issue inour nation.. As the line on most issues can be drawn right down religious lines..

    The facts of the matter are this.. This nation was never created with the intent of being a christian nation.. Most of our founding fathers were not christian.. They came here looking for religious freedom.. The very first amendment gives all of us that freedom.. That amendment does something else as well.. It seperates church and state.. A government simply can't govern a people of many religions unless the government is free from all religions..

    We are all americans..

    Some of us are conservative and some are liberals..

    Some of us are christian and some of us are not..

    But we are all americans.. It is time we start acting like it..

    What say you?
    :cool:

    well my only problem with this is, there seems to be divisions bettween the two legged and the four legged Americans here


    apparently some are more American than others.....~S~

    Basically: Fuck You.

    I'm not united with you and never will be.

    Basic principal of aikido is that you'll fall because you're out of balance with your environment

    If it's kooky (sic) to advocate for equality, then I guess it's the left that's 'kooky'. If Obama led us into an unjustifiable war, then I'd say he's doing harm to the country. If it's 'kooky' to uphold the law of the land and guarantee reproductive freedom to women, then it's just a lefty, kooky country.

    But I believe that all Americans deserve equal rights. I believe that women deserve the right to their own uterus. I believe that we actually elected this president and he is serving legitimately.

    I guess concepts like freedom, equality and justice for all is now considered 'kooky lefty'.

    What moral ascendancy is left for Conservatives? They have abandoned the notion that freedom extends to all Americans. I guess they feel that property rights trump personal rights.

    The Dems are out in Lunatic Fringe Neo-Marxists Land, lead by a guy who thinks the Constitution is all wrong and wondering why we don't join them.

    Most definitely a 'you must agree with me because I'm right' post. 'I mean, come on, isn't it American to realize there is no other correct position then mine!'
