You grossly underestimate the fighting spirit of the American people, just as they will.
Really? If this fighting spirit of the American people is so #ing amazing, why do the American military actually bother to train anyone? Why not just
give everyone an afternoon of introduction to some of the bigger toys – you know, the ones civilians aren’t allowed to have - as obviously it’s
going to take longer to fly one of those whirlybirds or something and then just let them go fight wars?
Yeah, I know I keep forgetting, even untrained Americans are some kind of supermen imbued with some ‘special’ quality that no one else has. Even
their own military and government don't have it, as they apparently lose their
‘fighting spirit’ the minute they either sign-up for
government or the military because only civilians have 'fighting spirit'.
Better to die on your feet than to live on your knees. Some of us would prefer death to complete and total enslavement. Maybe you will be happy
living as a lap dog to your masters, licking their boots and begging for the crumbs from their table.
See, at the end of the day, this is what it comes down to, the mentality of Rambo and Braveheart DVDs. I hope you do
get to die in the hail of
bullets that you apparently seem so fitting, right and noble! You almost seem desperate for it!
This is so bizarre. You are so blind in your insistence that you won’t be happy being a ‘lap dog to your masters’ and ‘begging for crumbs from
their table’ that you don’t actually see this is the case now
. Even with all your fancy guns, you’re as much a lap dog as anyone else,
and yes, we’re all lap dogs now
. You dance the dance the government wants you to dance. You might not be happy about it, but you do it all
With each passing week, there’s new threads on this forum about ‘how can the American government do this? How do they get away with it?’
regarding some shafting or other; half this board is about the American government screwing the American people in one form or another. What do I see
for all this? Threads like this. People typing and talking crap about how they’ll stop the government, how they’re prepared and ready and yet they
live through sham elections, phony wars, strange ‘terrorist’ attacks, bogeyman manufacturing, having their bank accounts pillaged forever &c.
It’s going to be interesting what that next big thing is in six months that people are hinting at, I wonder whether the American citizenship will
‘fight back’ then too. I’ll happily put money on them not
doing anything about it if it’s government connected.
‘Oh, but it’s not bad enough yet!’ Here’s a clue: when it really gets bad, it will be too #ing late. You might pity us poor defenceless
Europeans, but the truth of it is that you’re going to be in the same boat as the rest of us: guns or no guns.
Meanwhile the rest of us will do what every generation has done before us when faced with tyranny and oppression at the hands of a rogue state.
We will revolt and we will fight back with any means necessary. Win or lose, death is better than the alternative.
Every generation? Put the flag down for a second and answer me this, is this the America that’s very selective about which rogue states they take on
anyway? I mean, America doesn’t have a reputation for being particularly altruistic despite what many Americans think; American involvement usually
comes with a price tag. Whether it’s WWII or Iraq, you must be aware of history and honest enough to admit this, surely?
Unless you’re talking about your own state, America, of course. The one where Americans don’t really revolt against tyranny and oppression every
generation at all. Or rather they did a couple of hundred years ago (‘oh noes! Taxes!’). Now unless China have been putting really weird stuff in
your food for a long time and you've become embalmed, that doesn’t really account for every
generation. Maybe you’re as obsessed with
Highlander DVDs as you appear to be with Braveheart and its ilk of course and your
generation is very, very old.
Sure there will be many who will gladly lay down and submit to their overlords, just as many Americans were loyalists to the King of England.
There will be many Benedict Arnolds in the ranks, but there will also be many Patrick Henry's and Thomas Jeffersons. People who are willing to fight
and die for a cause more noble and more important than themselves.
I’m welling-up here. Truly beautiful. Also a little sad, because, with all due respect, you sound brainwashed. You sound like you’ve been
brainwashed by the very propaganda that you believe you can see through and fight against.
So you’re admitting there’s going to be “many Benedict Arnolds”? So that that magic 300,000,000 figure is
a nonsense then? And that’s
the government starts thinning the resistance out?
Im not here to try and change your mind or anyone elses,
This particularly sentence has given me a chuckle and set me up for the rest of the day, thanks. I’m not entirely sure what you set out to do with
this thread at all. I don’t think you were particularly interested in what your ‘European and Aussie friends’ had to say on this issue. You’ve
read the many other threads directly related to this topic, so why did you think this would be any different?
Your thread was a set-up from the start. You use pathetic and ridiculous terms like “jealousy” and “sour grapes” which, if nothing else,
speaks volumes of the arrogance that runs through many of these threads.
The best bit is you put me on your ‘foe’ list during this thread. Hahahah! So a European ‘friend’ answers your questions, you then don’t
like the answers and they get put on your ‘foe’ list? Hahaha! Classic. Why don’t you put your government on your ‘foe’ list too! That will
really show them! Go on, fight back!
I know which side I am on. Perhaps you would fall into the group who would say "take away my rights but feed and clothe me". Well that to me
is a defeatist attitude and is not within my protocol to believe that way.
It was ascertained fairly early on this thread that attitudes to gun ownership is, to a large extent, a cultural thing. I like the way that it’s now
come down to “defeatist attitude”.
Best of luck to you and your countrymen, hopefully everyone in the UK doesnt subscribe to the same hopeless belief system. If so then your
nation is truly in shambles and simply a well fed chicken waiting to be plucked.
No, you’ll be glad to know that I’m sure there’s people here that are equally convinced they can take on a better trained opponent who is armed
‘better’ weapons. I like the “hopeless belief system” comment because that really just about sums up the attitude that has been the
undercurrent for this thread from the start.
