Problem is....if there is a massive revolt and civil war, and the government is overthrown and replaced by new people...it will just keep happening over and over. There is no answer when it comes to overpopulation, greedy human beings and our generally sinful nature. Thinking that man can solve the plethora of issues facing us with more knowledge and better ideas is a phallacy.
Human beings have no chance. The atheists and other non believers out there should really be praying that God exists. We damn sure aren't going to fix ourselves....and we are almost out of band aids and quick fixes.

Damn, I mispelled fallacy. I think I have some kind of weird dyslexia concerning ph and f words. Or maybe I just listened to Phish too much as a teenager.
Honestly, I understand the optimism and wish I could share. I don't.

America must NEVER let the 2nd Amendment be stripped away from us by any modern day TRAITORS currently in charge!!!!!
We The People have the Right to KEEP and BEAR ARMS, and that shall not be taken away no matter WHAT stunts, planned events, or reasoning our modern day TRAITORS try to pull!!!!!

WASHINGTON – President Obama today issued a sweeping executive order banning the manufacture, sale and possession of all semi-automatic firearms in the U.S.
Obama cited for his authority for the action a national state of emergency that has been in effect ever since Sept. 11, 2001, and renewed annually by both President George W. Bush and Obama ever since. He also cited portions of the Patriot Act that suspend certain civil rights that remain classified.
The dramatic action by the president follows closely on the heels of the Newtown, Conn., massacre of 27 schoolchildren and teachers by Adam Lanza a week ago.
The Department of Homeland Security is truly massive it employees upward of 180,000-plus employees not to mention the servicemen and women of the U.S. Coast Guard and the Secret Service.

I wasn't going to watch the video until your reply.
Now I don't always agree with the OP here....often disagree in fact. However, it's in respect and I know him to source his stuff and put thought into his positions. It's almost weird to see an attack come on not only the OP of a thread...but the first reply in debate of it. So basically, everyone is wrong and these threads have no right to exist at all? I'm kinda lost by your issue......just what a solution would be?
