I am a conservative and not a libtard demo like you. That certainly doesn't qualify me or any of the other conservative posters here as ignorant.
If why you are saying is true then why weren't all of those people arrested?
I wasn't talking about a government overthrowing anyway. I was talking about the potential for a sitting president to get so big for his britches that he thinks he can can the constitution and take over like hitler did in Germany.
I was speculating about how our military forces would respond to such an attempt.
Seroiusly dude ... you need to go improve your reading skills.
we just had an example of a President canning the Constitution and he go away with it. No one stopped President Bush when

he had American citizens arrested and imprisoned without a trial
had foreigners kidnapped, imprisoned and tortured
lied about intelligence to get us into an illegal war
illegally invaded a foreign country
instituted a policy of torturing prisoners of war
violated the Geneva conventions which we are a signatory to
illegally wiretapped American citizens phones
conducted illegal searches

Are the libtards using the race card a lot today? I would expect so as Ryan scares them.

He is a liberals worst nightmare, but a breath of fresh air for patriots.

So what! I agree with your people. They should be enslaved.

It's the only card they've had in their deck since Da Bammy screwed up the oath of office. Now it's worn out, lacks cohesiveness, and is useless ... like Da Bammy.

Want hope? Vote for change. Romney/Ryan 2012

You didn't mention the Jews who were enslaved by the Egyptians for 400 years. They weren't treated like royalty. It has also been noted by several Ancient Greek historians that Egyptians were black or dark-skinned.

Although cruelty was rampant in the slave industry in the south and even after they were freed, many slaves were treated well and were more like stewards. Some slaves stayed on the plantations even after being liberated.

There are many instances in world history where cruelty was part of being a slave - no matter the race or ethnicity of both slaves and slave owners.

Not sure what your point is.

True. Truman ordered the bombs on Japan and in Germany.

Wonder if another president would have felt it necessary to make the same decision. Something we'll never know.

That, Galt, was speculation THEN, and remains through out History as still-speculation.

Truth be told...

The U.S. only they sock the bomb in the already agonizing Japan to show strength and intimidate the rest of the world with your new atomic toy.

The attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki were completely unnecessary because Japan was already on its way to surrender.

They also just entered at the war 'in Europe' because they saw that Nazi Germany was already in clear decline, and aimed to prevent Europe from falling all over the Soviet occupation.
