This is a special treat for those of you who feel that just because you can go golfing and enjoy your BBQ's and bring your smug attitudes to a very serious thread.............ENJOY your so called freedoms while they last!

What I don't understand is the anti American sentiment from posters in this community. Here for the most part are the Americans who do think for themselves. Americans who do realize there is an issue with today's worldwide political climate. Yet members from other countries alienate an already alienated group of Americans. We are already portrayed as fringe, or crazy by the MSM. If you are from another country in this community and wonder why Americans are so defensive on this site, understanding this concept is a good place to start.Oh yeah, S&F
Americans who want to control and subjugate fellow US citizens pre-date Bin Laden and they simply used Bin Laden to advance their own agenda, Bin Laden was the excuse, not the cause of the problem. Indeed many people believe that Bin Laden was originally an American puppet.The problem then is not some outside force, but from within.
Having your wealth maintained and not stolen for example I don't have a clue what you mean by this, although I suppose it is an emotionally loaded way to say you think taxation should be abolished. Again, I don't think all of us want what you call a right, which is in fact a political position.
I could always understand the anger from citizens of other countries towards average Americans. We as a whole do dictate what most other countries do, to one extent or another. How would Americans feel if another country came here and started to dictate what we do, or how we operate? What if another country started to surround the continental U.S. with bases? The answer is self evident.
You might wonder, what can we do about this? It's so overwhelming that my personal answer is nothing short of violent revolution, it's the only solution. Just talking about it gets us nowhere and protesting is just another way for the MSM to film you and then laugh at you in the evening news. I'm a pretty much a pacifist and to come to the realization that the solution for these problems is violence is very disheartening.
The main issue here is not what freedom means. The issue is we are coming into a choice time that could limit freedoms to the point that we don't have the freedom left to make new choices to get back the freedom. It's like the flash point of paper.
None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.
You may not be aware we have an underground culture that attend protests for the express purpose of causing violence, looting and damaging property. They don't really have a cause. Anarchy is not Freedom or welcome in any Free Society.
