That's not going to happen. Think about it a minute. Look at the current irrationality, rhetoric, ranker, idiocy, and deep divisions caused by Health
Care Reform. Most people who open their mouths to speak about it, don't have clue one about the depth and implications which it represents. I don't
even think most of them care. Understanding the issue properly is too hard. Besides, if you've already got your mind made up anyhow, then what's the
damn point of making the effort to know the details in the first place?! They wouldn't matter. It's enough to know that you think it's something
bad, and then say Hitler was all in favor of it. What are you gonna do anyhow... probe the issue in-depth in a rational and meaningful manner? That's
not how you win debates. No, no, no.... you just have to be the most ignorant one about it, and scream that ignorance as loud and angrily as you can
until the other guy is irritated enough to leave.
I understand switching to the metric system standard would be a damned smart move for America in terms of time, money, and resources which we should
done decades ago. I see no defensible or rational reason why I shouldn't support such a move... and I would support it. ...But even I don't
want to hassle with that awkward transitional period of switching to the metric system. How can you even joke about something like that I can
already hear the cries of allegations of fascism, the predictions that it will be the death of America, the fear-mongering of crippling of American
Sovereignty by "globalist European elites", and the Craftsman Death Panels. You know, Hitler used the metric system.
So yeah... you're god damned right switching to the metric system would make Obama a truly historic president. You throw those kinds of people an
issue simple enough that even they can understand and conceptualize? You're just asking for this nation to plunge into civil war shortly after such
an attempt was made. You have to understand that being represent a significant threat... (no... an ASSAULT really) on America's sovereignty and our
fundamental liberties to be as ass backwards obstinate for no good reason as we see fit.
Sheesh, next thing you'll suggest is that we all start driving crazy like on the other side of the road such as up in Canada.
