Insite, you really are something you know... You twist the meaning of words as if everyone, or most members, in here didn't know their meaning....
Let me address some of the points you talked about...
29 countries huh?, yep is a lot, but have you trully lived in all those countries to see what it is "living" in them?
I was born in Cuba, i lived there for 7 years, and i have visited my family in there in 2001 for a month, that is trully a country under a dictator,
an oppressed country.
I lived 10 years in Spain, visited and lived in many parts of Spain and in Lisboa, Portugal for a bit.
Spain back in the 80s was a mix between democracy and socialism, yes there were many good things about it, but there was a lot of bad. In Spain,
althou the education system is free up to what in here is high school, after that unless your family has a lot of money and you are an A student, is
really difficult to get an education past high school.
Crime in Spain is a lot higher than that of the US, the thing is that in Spain the media doesn't announce crime as much as it is done in the US.
Now, about our forefathers.....
Unless I am totally wrong, the forefathers of the USA made not only a bill of rights but also provided a means to have a balance on "law" in the
"government" when they wrote the Constitution.
Anarchy in itself is the "absence" of law, anarchy is "lawlessness", a conditon of no government in a nation...
I think i am pretty enlightened about what anarchy and freedom is. Yes, with freedom you should also have responsibilities and "laws" to make sure
other people's freedoms and rights are taken in consideration also, otherwise it becomes "anarchy", and anarchy was not the intention of our
forefathers. This is why they wrote the Constitution. They did not write the Constitution for the US to be an anarchy...
Your opinion about hating the right of others to hate the US being against freedom falls once again in the category of what is within the "law." It
is not only that these people and groups hate the US, but they are "actively" seeking to bring down the government and "the way of life" of the US
to "further their own agendas.
As for adding new laws as our country has grown and progressed, it is only natural. Very few countries keep the original form of their government
intact, but they keep adding new laws as their countries progress and grow.
About your view of freedom meaning being able to grow pot, or whatever else and do whatever you want, even if it is against the law....in here you
have to get back to the "laws" of the country, you have to follow these "laws" otherwise what you want once again is "anarchy" and our
forefathers wrote about a form of government where there is a check and balance, still it is a form of "government" with "laws."
Once again...read the Constitution of the United States, because i think you have read something else, and see that our forefathers devised a "form
of government" and not an "anarchy."
