Liberty and justice FOR ALL.

Not 'if it's not me it's not my problem'.

People seem to want the nation to adopt this second mantra.
you are confusing liberty and justice with socialistic social and economic welfare entitlemenr programs
Our constitution doesn't say it's ok to redistribute paychecks and jobs according to need. That's Marxist ideology. Also it's not governments hub to be sure everyone has s job. That would be more like the old Soviet Union style communism. On the other hand it would be nice if our government didn't destroy the ability of business to hire people but more government interference = less jobs

The whining and entitlement oozing from some working class white males is nauseating.

Oh woe is me, the world has stopped kissing my ass. Some guys need to get over themselves
So you know the race of people whining for entitlement?

It's at the point now that equal rights are not the issue; too many want more and more for their particular group, and to the detriment of all.

And, oh, yeah, some in government are fostering this nonsense. Makes for easier control.

We need less laws.
We need less regulations.
We need less pandering.
We need more privacy.
we need more ethics in government.
We need more freedom

Ya. We also need less people trying to hide their bigotry in long diatribes. It still looks like bigotry.

And you still look like you added absolutely nothing to this thread other than a supposition which is incorrect.

Looks like we both need some work.

On the other hand - You have no idea who I am, what I'm like. Bigotry? Has nothing to do with it. I seriously don't care if I'm surrounded by diverse people, so long as they're held accountable to all of the same things I am. I should not have any more rights than them, nor them, me. I'm very accepting of all walks of life - So long at they don't try to alter my life in ways that are protected by the constitution. Special religious groups, with people like Ted Cruz at the reins for instance - Not okay with me. We have freedom of religion, and also freedom FROM religion. ( That is, government cannot combine with religion )

But the whole point of this thread is to point out that these diverse groups of people give politicians a way to create division, to appear altruistic while stripping our freedoms. To look like they are propping someone up, noticing the hardships of one subset of people, to look like they care for us as people and want a better nation for us all...

Please argue that point, if you can. If not, please don't assume I'm just some bigot.

More government = Less money, worse economy, less jobs, etc.

Some governments can make it work when over populations fractions our size, but European/Eastern nations still have their ills.

I think we rather need to cut the Fed to 1/50 it's size, and give all states a lot more power and sovereignty. States, and the people within are vastly different from coast to coast. A cutting technology/ IT based- state needs different considerations than a state covered in farms, for instance. A highly religious state might consider different ways of viewing things than states without. ( Without crossing constitutional boundaries, even. )

Oh give me a break. The only reasons any minorities whine so much is because they HAVE TO. And what always happens is there is a period of hearing about them a lot, and hearing their complaints and blah blah blah, but this is part of the natural process of MAKING SURE THEY ARE TREATED EQUALLY. In the 60s it was black people, 70s, it was women, now it's gay people and TG. Leave it alone and it will balance out. Keep griping about it and you just make it worse for longer for yourself and them.

The only group currently being catered to and/or given special rights in the US at the moment are the religiously inclined.


Exactly.


Well all the corporations and scums must be religiously inclined then, cause they get away with pretty much everything they want as well, and the government.

When you gonna realize it is all being stirred to a conclusion by people that do not care one bit about religions, but instead have a gun held to their heads, and a hint for ya , those with the REAL guns, they are not human.

Agreed. My original post mentions ethnic people, including minorities receiving more benefits than natural citizens. It's definitely a messed up nation.


So minorities are not natural citizens now?

You know what the reality of cutting the fed to 1/50th of it's current size would actually be right? If not I will tell you, total take over of power from large corporations. It would destroy America as we know it/ as it has been. I have no inclination to live in the United States of Wal-Mart Stores, Inc./ExxonMobil/ Apple / General Electric / Ford Motor Company / Chevron etc.

Catering to the minorities/groups is not good for the country

It isn't.

Because there is only ONE group of people that live in the United States of America.

AMERICANS.

After that we have TWO sides fighting over the sheep deciding which one of us they are going to have for dinner.

Throw in some identity politics.

That's your hypenated American moniker.

Throw in some sex warfare. Pitting the straights against the gays, and make up an entire new sex to grow on.

Throw in some class warfare. pitting the evil rich against the poor, and middle.

Throw in some democat,republican, liberal, and conservative.

WHAT EVER FLOATS your boat people.

After all WE JUST HAVE to fight between ourselves because calling ourselves American.

Just American is 'offensive' to someone.

That's right people.

That's just effing OFFENSIVE.

'Minority' is just a manufactured label like everything else in the charade of politics.

It's entire practical aim is to convince the sheep one side is supposedly better than the other.

X says they 'care'.

X says they 'don't care'.

BLah,blah,blah.

99.9% of American politics is complete, and utter BULL SNIP.

You are missing the point that WE as AMERICANS do not view everyone as equal. (I do, but bigots don't)

So we must as you call "cater" to the minorities to enforce equal rights.

Once you understand that, then come back and chat

Wrong. This country was literally built to cater to one group, white males. Do we have to deny historical reality now?


You know ,,, Your Absolutely god dam right on that !!

well ... well since 1787 ... you know Culture Minority's and Race
Slavery of Native Americans and Negros ..


( Then there was a GAME Change )
Things turned after the Civil War .. and from the Industrial Revolution
from the Flood of Immigrants from the mid 1800s to the Turn of the Century in
The USA .. The Liberty Book was Open for the Tired Weak and Poor from All Nations
Those Degenerate , Unwanted , Nuisance, People that America had Taken in ...

Which Makes up the Nation ! of Today...

Most People Forget that WE are a NATION of NATIONS !

in Honesty .. you your bitching about Immigrants coming as of Today from this Decade and the Last ..

well.... America Should Close that Liberty Book in NYC .. and Take Care of America First..

say for like a few Decades ...
The US needs to Take Care of its, OWN People and Stop being TEAM USA
The Worlds Police Force !! ..

And equality...equal protection under the law..

The argument that affording everyone equality somehow infringes on individual liberty originates from racists and bigots.

Yet we daily capitulate and cater to a minority, and always have:

The wealthiest among us.

We lick their boots and pray for table scraps, and allow them to brainwash us into following them, support them and enable them to use us and abuse us to consolidate their wealth more. We allow them to divide us, pitting us against one another so we don't see the pillaging taking place around us.

We allow them to point fingers at those with even less than ourselves, blaming those "others" for our own misfortune in order to keep us from seeing the treachery they themselves commit.

So yeah, we cater to a minority group.

Just not the one we think.
