This is not about proving things. This is not claiming certian rights and opinions. It is about expressing these things, not defining them. We are
here discuss, not argue. In fact many are here just to learn. So for them, it can be hard to get any learning done when no one will even listen to one
another. It seems as if, everyone is a propagandist. I know I am, I just don't expect everyone else to be. I preach good will and humanity, but I
live in a world where those things are unpatriotic.
I think this patriotic crusade has gone too far. The people who promote it and the people who react to it are only splitting this nation even more and
more than it already is. Do we really want to start persecuted our brethren over selfish and opinionated differences??? Do we not have enough, people
in detention???? Is our jail system not overloaded already???
I think the American people need to stop lookin at one another like hawks. This is going to lead to bad results for our children. Gun violence in this
country is out of control. New York today has more gun deaths than it did before the attacks their in 2001. The children of this country, being aware
of their abilty to get weapons and use them because of the overt use of them in this country, will be even more likely to end up using them on their
own brethren and countrymen, out of fear or hate or even vilgilante justice. We as men and women on the internet are no different from haters on the
street who kill, when we persecute our brethren for their beliefs or their views. Stop the Crusade.
