If Americans need an enemy, need to have someone to hate, there’s a bigger problem that no one seem to be addressing.....

Why do you have to have someone to hate?


That’s actually a very good question. I think these days more people in our society define themselves by what they aren’t, instead of what they are.

I believe a huge shift in how we perceive everything, including ourselves is needed to change that.

This is the United States of America. He have no kings and will not. Go to another kingdom if you wish to be ruled by a monarch. We have the Constitution and are ruled by laws, not tyrants, comrade.


Pretty sure he was talking about Jesus.

Could be wrong tho

That is one big thing I hated about Obama. The almost blind adoration by so many. I wonder how many would want him back if the constitution would allow it.

Now, ask me about Trump. Here, let me copy and paste my earlier reply
''That is one big thing I hate about Trump. The almost blind adoration by so many. I wonder how many would want him to stay past the time the constitution would allow.''

They have one.

Trump supporters are NOT inherently bad. But someone is telling the ‘left’ that this is the case. The same people who scream “not all muslims” are vehemently against ALL of the President’s supporters.

Democrat supporters are not ALL low-iq thick braindead morons. But someone is telling the ‘right’ that this is the case. The same people who scream for tolerance are vehemently against ALL leftists.

Is the media the enemy? I don’t give them that much credit. But we all know there’s a deep state behind it all.

The same evil minds behind the racist, genocidal Kalergi plan are working hard to divide the United States and destroy it from within.

It’s working.

After 9/11 was the USA united or divided? I would say United towards a common enemy Their names: Osama Bin Laden, Al-qaida, Saddam Hussein, Qaddafi, ISIS, Taliban, ect, ect, you get the point Where or who is the unifying Common enemy NOW hmm Dems ? Repub's ? ISIS? Russia?, Saudi Arabia?, Turkey? China? Who? .....

There isn't a common Enemy of the USA out side of the USA .....Well there are, but their all within the USA between our selves this leads to division and eventual collapse ill tell you it's US, We, Americans- all of us. Not good for us & very good for our enemies they just sit and watch Meddle, n Poke,

We Recently had the Caravan from Honduras escaping to not Mexico or the next Country over but the USA Specifically! and don't forget Russia & Saudi Arabia, China, & Turkey who just attacked US troops in Syria in case you didn't hear.

So My question is WHO is the USA's COMMON enemy because if it's not anyone else outside of the USA it's each other -us within the USA and we cant have that it will weaken us and eventually Destroy us from within.....

So WHO's it gonna be??


If you need an enemy to survive, maybe you dont deserve to live....
Maybe you should just stop looking for someone to blame for all youre problems, and start looking for solutions

if you think about it, only two times in history has the US been this divided. divided by such extreme positions that it caused Irreconcilable differences. first the revolution. and then the years leading up to the civil war. not so sure at this point if we could even find a common enemy or cause. there are indeed dangers to the country. but those dangers are some of the very issues that the country is so divided over.

I know we have our own problems here in the UK and there have never been so many divisions in our country since the Thatcher days, but....

Speaking as someone who is viewing events in the US from the outside I've got to say I personally have never seen such a disunited States of America.
Of course there have always been differences and divisions but the vitriol and at times pure hatred displayed for each other seems to have reached unprecedented levels.

I can't blame any particular party, group or viewpoint, all seem equally entrenched in their beliefs and unwilling to consider and even respect opposing views or lifestyles.

As such I would say that the US definitely needs some sort of unifying force.
I don't know what or how that could or might manifest itself.....I just hope its not another war.

For all I like taking the piss out of our colonial cousins over the pond I really do wish you guys well and sincerely hope you sort things out....the world is a better place with a strong but fair USA.

And remember, there'll always be a place back in the family fold for the prodigal son.

We are even divided over who our enemies are. It's those damn aliens from space. If somebody admitted that we have something here that we don't know anything about and they are flying around our airspace, well we should have a space force to investigate and deal with it.a reply to: TheJesuit

Abso lutley.

Can we forget the major concern of conservatives only a decade or so ago? That the US would be made into a second rate nation? That in order for the globalists to take over the world, the USA would need to be dismantled? That our influence influence arcoss the globe be throttled?

This notion that Trump seems to have that we can go it alone, that we can deal through strength rather than cooperation appears to me to be just that, weakening our influence in the world. And this certainly can be understood to be part of the larger plan to dismantle the US

Now I cannot offer proof of this assessment as proof now all seems to be based on established opinions. It is just that to discount this '' interpretation'' seems to me to be a turn to blindness rather than keeping a watchful eye on what is happening to us all.

As a society we need to evolve beyond 'enemies' and unite behind common causes. I was hoping making America 'great' again would be something all Americans could get behind, but sadly politics have derailed that because the hatred of Trump is greater than the love of country.

What we need to do is pursue things like space exploration, infrastructure development and other things everyone can get behind. We need to have some 'wins' as Americans like the way the 1980 Olympic Hockey team united us all. We need to stop the politics and focus on positives for the American people.

I would rather have friends than enemies.

Like the people or country that actively tries to subvert our democracy and interfere with our democratic processes and institution thereby harming our country?

Didn't quite work. Crickets from too many people as long as they have power.

As someone who lives outside of America, I gotta say;

There is something really wrong with American thinking if you think you need enemies in order to live your lives.

For one thing to have an enemy you gotta make an enemy of somebody so you can destroy them.

That is really fraked up

Left in this country needs to set down for a bit. Maybe forever. Look at the gains they have made over the last 50 years to current. Whats going to ruin the country is the lack of a decisive and long standing defeat of the left.

Hmmm a common enemy huh.

Lets spin this here globe and throw a dart at it.

Where ever it shall land shall be our new beef taco supreme.


Whats that say?

Lie chten stein? wtfs that?


Liechtenstein is a German-speaking, 25km-long principality between Austria and Switzerland. It’s known for its medieval castles, alpine landscapes and villages linked by a network of trails. The capital, Vaduz, a cultural and financial center, is home to Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein, with galleries of modern and contemporary art. The Postmuseum displays Liechtenstein’s postage stamps.


How do we know those castles aren't storing weapons of mass destruction and these alpine landscapes???????????? more like bio-warfare centers connected by a network of dope and people and babies and bazooka smuggling tunnels.
