you are so liberal all of a sudden..
respecively.
you are half right about the civil war, lincoln only used freeing the slaves in 1863... a s away of mustering support for the war.
BUT we were all brought up on "united we stand"
so a separate slave state didnt make that much sense....especially with the worldwide challenges of the 20th century.
you are right about fundamentalists, they travel under all flags and religions..
and background checks as well...
I think responsible gun owners would like to buy a gun that ONLY they can use(palm print recognition)
that is my favorite idea....
and if background check save 2o kids from being shot up with an AR15, then i think I can get behind inconveiencing all these freaks who are buying their 19th gun for afew hours or minutes that it takes to run a check on his or her record...
we dont want felons(who demostrated they can not handle firearms responsibly) to have eASY access to them.
Im with you, it wont save many lives, but a starting with a handful of lives saved, would be helpful.
Ok, let me pose a hypothetical for you...Suppose, just for the sake of argument, that someone was ex-military, got into trouble for a minute, got a felony, later had it expunged and now owned guns, what would you say to that ? Let him own guns or not?

You are behind the times, better check the polls
53% to 58%( depending on which poll ) are in favor of Same Sex marrage in the US
Polls don't decide anything, most are fixed depending how the question is asked. People show different results when they vote.

OMG, you really are stupid. Don't you know that we didn't fight that war to free the slaves? Ever wonder why it was called "The War Of Northern Aggression"? It was because the South was making so much $$ from the trade it had, with other countries, that the North ordered it to sell them raw, unfinished goods and products, at a drastic loss, and then buy back finished goods and products, at rapish profits, that the South said "no". It was then that the North moved on the South, with blockades of all ports that the South used for exportation. THAT was what the Civil War was all about. Lincoln owned slaves. Lincoln said that if he could save the union, without freeing one slave, he would do so. The abolishment of slavery was a strike at the workforce that the South used, to make its profits. You dumb-ass. Don't post when you don't know what you are talking about. Damn.... You're welcome for the history lesson.
Well said. Does he think the racist north would die fighting to free the slaves? It's amazing how the liberals are educated from movies. They should watch the Civil war documentary by Ken Burn's since they don't seem to be able to read.

depends on the felony?? and if it involved guns OR violence.
and espungment is espungment....

you cant get esponged of a hainous crime that easy...

if there wasnt a premeditated gun violation??

id say his chance of regaining the right to own a gun is good indeed.

we dont give hainous criminals back their voting rights immeadiatle,and unconditionally, even in blue states...

so it depends on the circumstances of the case.
in 13 southern states, no felon gets their voting rights back(a shame)

I thought that whole three stikes thing that clinton pushed on us was stoopid.

they passed a mitigation to that law, last election, here in california...

they are having serious over crowding issues anyhow...
so they had to send violent criminals to COUNTY lock up(believe it
)
if someone who has two strikes?? gets caught later in life with a bag of meth for instance....

it is stoopid to hand out a LONG sentence(even in a hard ass state, with more room in their prisons)

even though meth is stoopid itself.....two stoopids(locking up drug addicts) dont make a smart..

prohibition itself creates the crime surrounding drug use.
educate not incarcerate.

Well, it can be a daunting task, arriving at the truth, when we are inundated by propaganda, but if one has many sources of input, it can reduce the difficulty. I have lived extensively abroad, and that helps a lot. Getting a completely different view from the outside is a rare thing. Having lived for a spell in the Mideast, I know that most Muslims are wonderful people, but that the few have given them a bad name.

i HAve watched that documentary....

its great!

you know ken is gay right?

I watched that, and somehow it didnt turn me into a republican, or a slavery lover... or someone who was sore at the union ..it potraited a middle of the road explaination....

i wouldnt have watched it if it was some weird right wing peice of agiprop....

the republicans were really the first party of civil rights...

and MADE this country in many ways....

buT that was the 19th century...

and the culture of the twentieth century is waY different.

and soemhow the repubs became the party exclusion.

I KNOW how, but you wont buy it, and neither may rock.

next post.

reich and rock

the republican party was reborn in the 70's and eighties, because the democrats at large, no longer represented the MORAL values of the dixiecrats.

and so nixon and then reagan capitalized on this new paradigm. the southern strategy.....im sure youve heard that term spoken. now the south votes pretty much republican

back when the civil rights act was passed???

it wasnt passed along party lines...

it WAS passed along geograpic lines, with the south voting against it...

where are all those moderate northern republicans who voted WITH those who wanted voting rights ensured for minoroites.??? where have they gone?

your party(reichardo) is no longer the party of inclusion....

they have ALWAYS been stingy bastards, when it came to social programs??? but they use to at least CONSIDER progressive civil actions.
