You may think you are old, but you were no in the war of 1812. You never fought for my right to do anything.
As I said before, if you want to be a part of a society where the individual has no responsibility whatsoever, you need to move someplace else. Here your citizenship comes with responsibilities to your fellow citizens.
If you reside in the US legally, and/or if you are a US citizen, yes I did, and so have a lot of other people. If you are neither then you are right, and you need to return to where you legally belong.

List of WHAT?
I'm asking for hypocrisy on current political issues.
Don't give me: "Oh, in World War One some Democrat was actually of German descent."
Give me an _issue_ that displays hypocrisy on the side of Liberals. You claim that they are all hypocrites, let's have an example from the last 3-4 years.
<quoted text>
Sorry, but that's where you are wrong.
We MUST use the term "Conservative" and "Liberal" because when we talk about Republicans posters like to pretend that Lincoln was on their side.
The parties switch philosophical stances. The stances don't change.
Conservatives supported slavery during the Civil War just like the are anti-immigration today.
From what I've read,(believe it or not, I wasn't alive back then), the White Southern Plantation Owners probably didn't have a Political Affiliation, for the most part. They were only interested in not losing their Labor Force that was making, or had made them rich...and it had cost them practically nothing, but Room and Board. In their Minds, it was all about MONEY...kinda like the TEApublicans of today!

I've been fishing, but so far no bites. I've had a few nibbles, but they've been minnows. I'm kinda after the big fish, if you know what I mean. It would be just the confirmation I'm looking for. I guess the idea is that there are those prowling these threads, and if I find one I'm gonna poke it with a stick. LOL

1812 wasn't about slavery, but Britain's attempt to retake the Colonies, as I recall, and the US kicked their London-derrieres. Been trying to work that one out, but no joy thus far. Slavery was in the 1860's {give or take a bit}.

Oh yeah, there was something else to go along with that. Why is it that the Emancipation Proclamation wasn't written until 3 years after South Carolina declared their Independence, 2 years after Fort Sumter, and only sought to free the slaves in Maryland and Virginia; none in the North, and there were slaves aplenty up in Yankee Land.

It is sure easy to blame the South for slavery, but who brought the slaves from Africa? Northerners. Who sold them the slaves? The conquering tribes, arguably almost always black. What were they bought with? Rum and Bibles. Who beat the black slaves? The slave traders and the overseers until they were caught by the plantation owner. How long would slavery have lasted without the War Between the States? Maybe 10 to 15 years because the industrial revolution was beginning and a machine requires less medical care, housing, and feeding than human slaves do.

It never ceases to amaze me how little thought people put into the middle 1800's.

I'm calling bullshit on this.

There has not be a legitimate threat to the US since 1812.

No war you could possible have fought in has anything to do with my freedoms.

Iraq 1 or 2? Afghanistan? Panama? Grenada? Vietnam? Korea? None of these represented real threats which extended past their borders. Certainly no threat to the US.

If you go back as far as WWII, you can find some bigger players - but even then, no real risk to us. Even if we had sat it out, Germany wouldn't have beat Russia.

So that leaves who? Japan? Laughable. They were hard to beat into submission when they were defending to the last man, but they certainly were no threat to our freedoms.

Only in your wildest dreams can you come up with a scenario that involves Japan taking a single city in California, and even then they couldn't hold it.

So, here you are telling me you fought for MY freedoms. No. You fought (if you fought) for a paycheck and benefits. That's all.

Yes, the war of 1812 involve England invading and sacking out capital. It was the last significant threat we've faced to our "freedoms".

You did not fight off the Brits. You never fought for freedom.

Ah! So that's what you meant. I can actually agree with this post, for the most part anyway.

However, the government you think we should all obey called us to duty, directed us to fight its war, and did this in your name among others. Yeah, we do fight for you, and we die for you as well. Have they been legitimate wars? I would say not, but that doesn't change one thing, Nuggin. If you wish to support this government, then you share in the blood it has shed on both sides, and I do believe one day you'll be called to answer for that blood, every last drop. Be thankful you won't be alone.

You are claiming that you fought for my freedom.

However, your fight was not for my freedom. Did you fight in Korea? That was a draw. No freedoms at risk.

Did you fight in Vietnam? We LOST Vietnam and yet... all the freedoms are still intact.

Did you fight in something after that? Not if you want to claim that the government asked you to fight.

So, exactly which freedoms were at risk? And why didn't we lose them when we failed to win those wars?

I don't need to refute it. I'm above it.

The reason I bring up Damon and Affleck is best they wrote and starred in "Good Will Hunting" ~15 years ago.

That film has a scene that demonstrates exactly what I'm seeing here. You are acting like a sophomore in college, high on a tidbit of learning and trying to impress people you think are beneath you.

Sadly, the arguments you are posing are EXACTLY the arguments being made by the douchebag in the film.

It's particularly sad.

I am fighting for freedom right now, and you are, and have been, fighting against it. You seek to strip people of rights, autonomy, and everything that makes a people free. You may not be British, you may not be French {1814}, and you may not be Mexican {1830's}, but you have set yourself against Freedom, and had the audacity to invite me to go to some other country?

What is funny is that I, and every military man and woman serves with the thought that we stand ready to guard the rights protected by the Constitution for each and every person, including you, even while you stab us in the back.

You are admitting that your interpretations are based on a film? Here's one for you, "Life is pain, Princess, anyone that says different is selling something." - Princess Bride

You don't want "freedom". You want anarchy.

You want to be "free" to endanger the lives of other citizens. No society can survive under those circumstances.

Being a part of a society means accepting the responsibilities that come along with the benefits.

In this case, the benefit is health and sanitation. The responsibilities are taxes and vaccination.

You are not "free" to reap the benefits and not take on the responsibilities. You are, however "free" to leave.

Get over yourself.

At no point did you fight for freedom.

IF you were drafted, then you went because it was your responsibility to do so. And you have been compensated for that work.

That compensation does not include endless bitching about how you saved everyone from some non-existent threat to "freedom".

If you weren't draft, but rather volunteered to go, then you took a job for the pay and benefits. That is all. It may have been a bad decision in hindsight but tough crap.

Stop pretending you're a martyr to some higher cause. Freedom was NEVER at risk. Killing the child of some farmer in Vietnam did not "save" American freedom at all. It was totally irrelevant to everyone but the child and the person shooting him.

No, I'm pointing out that even Damon and Affleck 15 years ago were tired of douchebags trotting out their rehashed claims that the civil war wasn't about slavery.

It highlights you as a pseudo-intellectual who doesn't honestly have a grasp of the history. You're a step above a high school student and you think you've reached the mountain top.

You haven't even started your climb.

The Civil War was about slavery. Trying to show it in any other context is like claiming that Iran 1 and 2 had nothing to do with oil. It isn't just the elephant in the room, it's a herd of elephants crammed into an elevator.

IF you continue your education you will _EVENTUALLY_ get to a point where you can see that. You aren't there yet.

You talk about me taking vaccines to protect you from getting what you took the vaccine for and you think it is none of my business about what GMOs might be in the food I eat because you say they said it's fine.I am to not know about food to save other people from starving,because if I won't buy GMOs because I don't know they are great,and I and others like me,will for sure put others at risk for dieing of starvation because Monsanto will go out of business and the world will parish.REALLY?
