Locked: Bush, should he have stayed? in Off Topic
I push for my ethics, I protect my religion, and I question my religon. I see nothing wrong in ensuring the 10 commandments or otherwise, I can respect your opinion...Also look at your money, look at the pledge of allegience, look at a number of religous sayings and symbols, they cover many of the founding documents of our country. Morals can be found outside of religion, but it is a rare person who does. As for your Salem Witch trial theory...do I even need to argue that? That's so stupid - what's the point? How many founding fathers do I have to point to? How many Christian presidents have there been? Consider yourself lucky a violent strain of Islam didn't shape this country, consider yourself fortunate that the ideals fostered in this country have all helped to shape an easier life for yourself.

Yeah, he was genius, and a bit nuts. Everyone knows that. My point still stands though, this nation has its roots in Christianity. The Mayflower voyagers came over for religous freedom, contrary to the popular secularist theories that they came for wealth or some other nonsense.
If any American is asked if they live in an oppressive country they would likely say no.
So I don't understand why foreigner's like to spin a tale that we are indeed oppressed and that something must be done.
Also, I love my freedom of speech. It can create some polarization but largely it is beneficial to help address the will of the people.
History will someday be the judge, and hopefully people then will see the strategic move to be gained in attacking Iraq's deadly regime, and then the terrorists who reside and/or are trained there.
Banning guns results in less guns all around. Even if that means a higher proportion of said guns are illegal, there's still less guns. And less guns means less gun-related death. Simple enough?
