    I'm tiring of reading/hearing "Well, I have the RIGHT to express my opinion" and "My opinion should be respected" or "All opinions are valid"

    Look - Frankly, there's a good chance your opinion DOES NOT matter. Chances are high that your opinion cannot be backed up by FACT or even DATA. There are very few people who originate 'opinion'...most others, YOU even, tend to steal OTHERS' opinions and claim them as your own.


    As a rule, people who have never served their nation have no right to an opinion criticizing how that nation operates.

    Take it from me...nobody cares.


    That's all.

    :D

    You're a special, positive person. You remind me of light itself.

    Well I think that's bullshit! People "serve" their country every day. They work (absolute necessity for the gov't to run), they pay taxes, they obey laws. These people have every right in the world to question authority. That's why we have freedom of speech in this country. Just because the gov't makes a decision doesn't mean that it's the right one.

    Thinking like that doesn't get anyone anywhere. Our fuckin' "nation" wouldn't even be here if it weren't for criticizing gov't!

    dmp,

    What do you think, people have to join the military to have the right to speak out? Do you think that every person in America is going to join the military? Did you read the last line of my previous post? Are you really that stupid?

    I'm probably smarter than you, first off. Not guaranteed, but its likely.

    Don't put words in my thread. Read what I wrote, then see if you want to edit your post, Chucky.
