    Anyway I am new to this site, so I am going to start telling you what I think is going wrong with America.


    First of all you need to recognize that we have put our country into a dangerous position. The liberal side believes that most Americans (whites) should feel bad about our countries past. Most don’t believe that this country had the right exist in the first place, not to mention having a position of strong influence on the world. What happened to Native Americans is the core reason for these beliefs, followed by African American Slavery.

    So with respect to illegal aliens and immigration, liberals tend to believe that they must tolerate it, so this country can make up for the “white man’s sin”, its’ past relationship with minorities. . They don’t care if most illegal aliens or immigrants come from either Latin America or Asia, regions in which America has had historical little influence over. It’s a race issue to them, and even the fact that most Hispanic American are decedents of Spaniard the first European colonial power, the liberals somehow forgive Latin American countries from their past sins, and focus on the Western European countries instead.

    A common liberal belief is that most wealthy countries in this world, stole their wealth from the weaker regions in the world, this was achieved first by colonization and is being currently maintained by globalization. Liberals tend to forget that hard work, investment, and inventions were also responsible for the rise of Europe, and so don’t focus on education or other forms of investment as being of much value. Liberals do believe that if American were more racially balanced, however, that America would somehow become a great influence for good in the world. They tend to forget that mankind has exploited one another for thousands of years before most of our ancestors even knew that their were people how looked racially different.

    Conservatives on the other hand who have traditionally built up American, believing in investment and national development as core values. Have suffered a major setback to their beliefs in recent years, liberal’s guilt trips. These guilt trips have resulted in Liberals gaining the keys to American’s future and leaving conservative to focus on their second most important value, greed and the accumulation of wealth. With conservatives now focusing mostly on themselves, illegal immigrants suddenly just become a source of cheep labor, and outsourcing jobs simple become a means to make more money.

    What this adds up to is that most Americans now focus on themselves and care little for the future or even the rest of the world. The few who really pay attention to what’s going on either don’t have the power to stop it, or feel that they can benefit form it. The rich conservatives are positioning themselves for the global market place and diversifying their funds through out the world (Bill Gates and Warren Buffet), and preparing themselves for what ever comes. The liberal are simply waiting for their chance to seize control, and chance America into the country they believe it should be (a minority dominate country).

    The result, in the future the White American that have the means and the education will flee back to the soon to be largely depopulated European countries (low birth rates), and the rest this countries remaining bright minds will flee to what ever other country they can get into. Leaving the liberals to scratch their head, wondering how they let the conservatism outplay them again. With America by then being heavily indebted to the world (high trade deficit) and incapable of maintaining the quality of life they had become use to (to much global outsourcing).

    Hi Markainion, Welcome. Let me comment on your post.

    I wouldn't feel bad about warring upon Native American tribes, as they, along with the rest of the known human world at the time, did so ruthlessly upon each other for thousands of years. The Indian tribes were just as barbaric as the worst of humanity, carrying out torture, rape, kidnapping, murder, as a way of survival... they were certainly nothing like the peace-loving utopia Leftists worship them for, that's for sure.

    African slave trade? Africans are the first people to practice slavery, as well as one of the last remaining places on Earth. It existed far before 'whitey' started exploring the dark continent. America was the last country to practice slavery and the first to eliminate it (in several states). So why feel guilty.

    The reason Liberals pander so is to secure votes from illegal aliens and disaffected minorities by promising them money in exchange for their own power. For people like Kerry and Dean, it's not what they really believe that counts, it's the means to the end for obtaining power through minority votes.

    That's true, but Liberals don't do well at all with immigrants from Cuba, Eastern Europe, or even Russia, since most of the immigrants from genuinely socialist states are well aware of the promises and eventual fate Liberals (ie. Socialists) deliver. That should be a lesson to all immigrants, who do have their own opinions, and do eventually become Republicans (at least the legal, successful immigrants.)

    The liberals focus on Western European countries like France and Germany because they generally represent the type of stagnant, nanny state they wish upon America. And it's no surprise that the UN is like a gleaming tower of Babel to them all, liberals of America, Europe, and despots of the Middle East... all of them.

    This is such a ridiculous argument from the Liberals.

    It's almost like there's some valley in Western Africa which grows these poppies full of golden microchips.

    It's the Judeo-Christian society which dominated and then created all forms of wealth today (including oil as a commodity), as long as you remember that, you'll be well grounded in history.

    :thup:

    I'd say that Congress, the Senate, the Executive Office, and soon to be the Supreme Court are ran by Conservatives, who hold the keys to pretty much everything in America. Don't you agree?

    America is not an isolationist country anymore. You think we are spending Billions to liberate several countries after 9-11 for oil? Be carefull before you attack 'most Americans' and Liberals in the same breath, before you realize Liberals are a minority in this country, especially since Bush's last re-election.

    Neither the far right, or the far left will ever dominate American politics. And never have. I'd stop worrying about the eventual 'race war' and start focusing on your own personal education in politics, which you will find enriched by time spent reading posts at this board.

    I can't imagine one single American who would 'flee' to Europe, not in my neighborhood. Like I said, you might not live long enough to see your terrible prediction come true.

    Yeah, I don't think it's going to happen in my lifetime. And unless you're already packed and bought your plane ticket, then don't expect me to get too excited yet.

    Anyway, I like alot of what you say, and hope you'll explain your arguments more so we can pick your brain a bit more. Welcome to the board.

    Some were, some were not you know they fought amongst each other. The same can be said about aboriginals in Amazonia, some are more peaceful then other more aggressive tribal units. This of course is a very simplistic reply, not intended to cover all problems existing within aboriginal cultures now and then.

    Most of the tribes were peaceful. Of those tribes, the only times of warring against other tribes were over territory. The handful of tribes that weren't peaceful, like the pawnee for one, were the usual instigators of warfare between tribes. To lump all the tribes as 'barbaric and savage' because of the nature of a few would be like lumping all republicans as chickenhawks and warmongers, because of a few.

    These are excellent points and show the futility of feeling anything - especially guilt - over something that happened before any of us were born. Of course, by the same token, we don't have any right to feel proud about the Constitution created by our forefathers or the sacrifice of the heroes who have died to keep us free. We didn't do any of that either.

    What does make some sense for us is to recognize the facts -not the feelings- about slavery and freedom in our history. The former has left us with some pretty ugly problems; the latter with the solution to some of those problems (if we can figure out how to implement it).

    One thing that does trouble me though is our increasingly bi-polar wealth distribution. Democracy in the sense of political equality, flourishes best in conditions of moderate social equality. That a few are getting richer while a lot are getting poorer - the richest 1% of America owns more than the poorest 50% put together - threatens our political system. The poor, naturally want to use their votes to raise their living standards through government programs. The rich, who equally naturally don't want to see their resources confiscated for redistribution, must find ways to manipulate the system so that they can overcome the potentially much larger number of poor voters. Folks in the middle don't know whether to scratch their watches or wind their asses. Their heads point in one direction, their hearts in another and no one is talking straight any more.

    The only problems left from slavery are by those who won't let go of slavery...see: Jessie Jackson, Al Sharpton, etc...

    The rich own more than the poor?!? Of course they do! That's the definition of rich and poor! Good for the rich people for working hard and getting rich!

    Exactly my point. The introduction/implimentation of certain things such as pastoralism, contributed to raiding and feuds over territory, but many also worked together and joined other clans out of nessesity too.

    Chickenhawks. :D That reminds me of bugs.
