I just seen this.
Your freedom was never freedom and I rather doubt whether you could define freedom if pressed to do so.
Freedom stands for something greater than just the right to act however I choose—it also stands for securing to everyone an equal opportunity for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
Please take a look at your own history and then talk to the Native Americans, the Blacks and the Chinese about how much your forefathers believed in freedom and the amount that has extended to them
I am Native American and I do know what freedom were taken from us....yet in today's society I will fight to keep the freedoms that I have left......History about how the government treated my forefathers will not influence my views on freedom....I can only look forward and remember
And while you are doing that, you might want to find out what the millions "given" to foreign countries were used for. Of course, you could also find out how many people your government killed and the how many trillions of dollars robbed from the natural resources your government ostensibly went to help.
I know in times of disaster that America helps other countries financially........Would that money help people here eat,get proper clothing,stop living in the streets.....we have alot of homeless hungry people right here at home...why not take care of them first!
I don't agree with wagging a war over resources....And I hope that wasn't/isn't the case.
This may be a little taxing for you, but you could count the tens of millions of people murdered by your government to keep gas prices less than $3.00 a gallon.
HOGWASH!!!!!...Not even worth a response
Naturally, it is necessary for people like you to say the often repeated nonsense about "tremble" and "stagger". However, it might be useful for you to look at the economic growth of China, India, Brazil and other non-European countries and determine who is trembling and who is staggering.
I recognize that the US isn't the economic powerhouse they once were but that still doesn't take away from the fact that the US is still the most powerful and influential country on this planet.
Ignorance might have served you well for a long time, but you are just beginning to feel the first frigid winds of a special winter. Please get a heavy coat and you may need to get better insulation as well
Your assumption of my ignorance shows me that you are the type of person that cast judgement about someone without even knowing them......which also tell me that you might need to take off you winter coat and inspect it because the frigid winds off DUMBASS are about to blow right up yours!
Talk is very important, but it would be even more important if it were based in fact. Allan
Alan...c'mere....no closer.....*whispers* "It was just a poem.....yep just a widdle poem.....let it go and take a deep breath".
Have a good day
