And whose fault is that?
Say what you want about America, She gets what She demands.
I have only voted for two Republicans in my life. I am dissatisfied with Barack Obama, but I voted for him in 2008 and 2012. Obama is an incompetent beneficiary of affirmative action, but I would vote for him a third time against any Republican.
The only thing "skewed" must be my way of expressing my thoughts. Other than your attempt to "teach" me something, I don't necessarily disagree with anything you said. Moreover, if you spent more time trying to discuss and less time trying to sound like a self important asshole, we might be able to help those with truly Socialist leanings see the error in their ways.
The "simple stuff" is that government and society are two different things. A federal government has to be concerned with the collective. That is the very reason for the existence of a federal government. Put away your "word of the day" calendar and try having a discussion with someone rather than preaching to people and you may have better luck.
I am sorry if my original post did not flow correctly which led to this discussion. Please read it again through the prism of me being an open minded constitutionalist with a full understanding of individual responsibility and freedoms. Sorry for the trouble.
Not sure if ya can read my response above... some glitch I guess.
Here is my response:
If you're offended, perhaps the problem is within you. Look in there and see if you find something bent out of shape. I have my way, you have yours... that doesn't mean we can't converse civilly.
The interests of the collective are inherently resolved where the interests of the individual is resolved. There is no better place for the interests of the individual to get their interests resolved, than THE INDIVIDUAL THEMSELVES.
Government is THE PEOPLE... and the people (The Collective) get precisely the government it DESERVES!
Thus we can deduce from that, that the United States is a hot mess, having long ago become infected by a virulent Ideology which sets Foreign Ideas that are HOSTILE TO THE PRINCIPLES THAT DEFINE AMERICA, in opposition to those principles... .
The United States is faltering... it will likely cease to exist as you've known it, within the very near future.
If it has ANY CHANCE, it is in a resurgence of the INDIVIDUAL taking responsibility FOR ITSELF... bearing the responsibilities that sustain its rights... and doing so without regard to the 'feelings' of those who challenge those rights and reject all sense of responsibility.
Not necessary... and I feel ya. I read it the first time. I get it... we can move on.
When do we get to execute one?
only because as a liberal you lack the IQ to understand how freedom and capitalism work best. That is the very definition of liberal. Sorry.
