Well, I don't think right wing Americans like us commenting about their government.
They seem to have this paranoid fear about the government messing with their lives if they introduced something that even resembled a health
Like I mentioned earlier, the big bail out of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac seems like the government screwing around with the free market, and
instilling socialist ideals.
Of all liberal democracies, America is the odd one out in my mind. All I'm hearing on these boards when Obama comes up is "I work for my money and
everyone else can go jump!".
Well, if you're so hung up about it, don't pay taxes and don't vote - don't even work!
Have another violent civil war and revolution when Obama is voted in, and install the autocratic theocracy you so desperately want and stop whining
You can talk about our goverment all you want, we sure do it. Just stop trying to tell us what's best for OUR country, and that we are wrong to want
what we want for OUR country, and that we should change our beliefs to make other countries happy. If what you have in your country is socialism and
it works for you and you like it, who am i to tell you to change it because i don't like it ?
We don't have a "paranoid fear" of the goverment messing with our lives, what we have is a true realization of just how much they will mess with
our lives if we allow them to.
Don't ASSUME that all Americans are happy with the bail out of the morgtage industry, it's not like they asked us our opinion on the matter.
They're only doing that to help out the corporate world, not us, and they've attached a lot of strings to that bail out. Do you really believe that
it will be our goverment that bails them out ?
That's where you're wrong "liberal democracy", this country was founded to be a REPUBLIC, NOT a democracy, and that's where the problem comes in.
Americans want their country back, we want our REPUBLIC back, not the democracy that the politicians are trying to turn this country into and would
have people believe that is is.
I say that we should go back to what we used to be an isolationist republic. Worry about our own country and keep our noses out of everybody else's
Quite honestly voting doesn't make a difference in this country anymore, our votes are wasted, they don't count for squat. Don't get me wrong i
will vote, i do every election, i'd just like to have someone worth voting for instead of having to vote for the lesser of two evils.
Don't work ? Maybe you enjoy the mentality of having things handed to you that you didn't work for, but i don't. I may not have much, but what i
have i earned through my hard work, nothing was handed to me ! I have no problem with helping out those in need, i'm just tired of seeing people
taking advantage of the system. People get up and work hard everyday and struggle just to get by, and then you have those that get the handouts to
help with everything, food, rent, medicine, utilities, but drive around in new cars, covered in gold, living in goverment townhouses. That's where
the problem comes in, people that don't want to work shouldn't have more than those that do and out of our money ! Sorry for the rant, but if you
don't live here you don't see it, so you don't know.
If we were to have another civil war it definately wouldn't be a aucratic theocracy that was put into place. It would be a goverment of the people,
by the people, for the people, like our forefathers intended it to be.
