It's going to be very hard to participate in this thread without someone wanting to go total Republican or total Democrat on someone of the opposite
For the purposes of this thread, give it your best shot.
America has fought in some pretty significant wars. I would say the three most defining wars for us have been the Revolutionary War, the Civil War,
We aren't at the piont were Republicans and Democrats are going to take up arms against each other. But you can feel the negative intensity and both
sides may already hear whispers of such dramatic action.
Can our nation be fixed by simply going out to vote? Both sides say we need to throw the bums out but on the election day, but when we go to vote,
that logic is forgotten.
So again, can we fix this nation by voting?
Democrats want to make significant changes to our current system and they have the President willing to take such bold action.
Republicans want to keep things as they are to an extent and they would also like to see the values of "yesterday" reintroduced to our society.
Somebody is going to lose this fight. One side or the other. Are these the beginning stages of the third internal war for the US? (The first two
being the Revolutionary War and the Civil War.)
Are there any Revolutionary War and Civil War buffs that can explain the short and simple version of the events that took place before each of those
two wars began? What were the events that led up to the beginning of each of those wars?
We all know the pop culture version and certainly anyone can pull books at the library. And most people know how to use google. I am not talking
about that. I am talking about someone who knows their stuff and can type of the short and simple version of those events with approximate dates.
Does health care reform = slavery?
Does health care reform = the stamp act and/or the tea party?
There was allot more to those two wars then those pop culture bullet points.
Once we dwell over that information, just how far do you think the US is willing to take the fight to the other side?
Is this all political drama that will soon fade away or should we as Americans start thinking about the possibility of choosing a side (or refusing
The states are filing a law suit against the federal government over health reform. Soon, the Supreme Court will have this law suit at their door
They will soon have to decide whether to dismiss it or hear the arguements and make a decision. No matter what they do, even if they do nothing, one
side is going to win and one side is going to lose.
If the Republicans win this suit, how will the three Democratic Houses respond? If the Democrats win, what then?
Surely, the Democrats are not done trying to make their version of a better America come to fruitition. And the Republicans have their very different
very as well; and they are showing no signs of giving up.
When voting for change and demanding change didn't work for George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, we know what the end result was.
So is Barrack Obama the new George Washington/Abraham Lincoln? If a Republican wins the White House in 2012, might they elect "the third one"?
I think we are setting ourselves up for the perfect storm.....which has already happened twice. Three times if you want to count WWII.
Is this storm going to break up or is it going to pour rain, thunder, and lightening?
Because it it's all about to spiral down the toilet, we need to start getting ready. Both sides. Lest one side does and one side doesn't.
In addition, is there anyone on this website that has been a UNARMED CIVILIAN caught in the middle of a war? Can you please share your survival
I suppose this is a thread that might be better suited as a multitude of threads; each covering the individual points I have touched on.
But maybe this is a good start. We aren't going to be able to change much of anything. But it might do each of us some good to have a better
understanding of what might be shooting down the pipe.
I think to much change all at once is poison. What's next; cap and trade? Immigration reform? All in the span of 4 years or less?
Not to mention that it's during two concurrent wars and a pretty serious recession.
How will the Democrats react if the Republicans retake control and start over turning Obama's policies?
The way I see it, Republicans and Democrats each have a very different direction they want America to take RIGHT NOW! And neither side wants to give
the other an inch.
I think we are in real serious trouble. I think armed conflict internally, however remote it may be right now, is becoming a more likely
Let me give you an example of the division; do you think the US Constitution should be upheld in it's current form or is it just a piece of paper in
dire need of an update?
Welcome to the hornet's nest. I invite you to jump right in.
