Individuals do not have freedom in a democracy! In a democracy the majority rules. Think about what that can do to freedom when the majority are blood-sucking parasites.
Democracy is and has been a commonly used by-word for our form of government when in actuality it's not a true Democracy. I think most of you are quite aware of that fact, at least those that ever went to any form of a educational system.

I think that while most of you look for some form of error in anyone's opposing politic view, you often are grossly mistaken in your rebuttal.

But why shouldn't you be, garbage in, garbage out.

"Democracy is and has been a commonly used by-word for our form of government"
It's a known fact that when something is repeated often enough, people start to believe it. Ever notice that politicians always use that word? And that's what's taught in schools. It is a form of brainwashing! Now the younger generation actually believes we live in a democracy. That's what they will grow up espousing. Why do you think this government doesn't want kids to understand what a republic is and what form of government our founders created?

Every nation has violent loners, and they tend to have remarkably similar profiles from one country and culture to the next. And every country has known the horror of having a lunatic get his hands on a gun and kill innocent people.

But on a recent list of the fourteen worst mass shootings in Western democracies since the nineteen-sixties the United States claimed seven,

and, just as important, no other country on the list has had a repeat performance as severe as the first.

You can't get through to people like that. Hmmmmm is a major part of what is wrong with this country. People like that are more interested in hearing about Honey Boo Boo and Kim Kardashian than they are about hearing the truth about our country and the world. Their thought process is not sophisticatd enough to realize that eventually they will unknowingly eat the goose that laid the golden egg and starve theirselves to death due to their sheer ignorance! This country is doomed!

Yep were doomed. you cant change folks core concepts with facts. Only after great personal disaster will a few see things as they are. Many folks after their homes are destroyed by a flood stubbornly rebuild in the exact same location. the other day I was discussing debt with a deep in debt up to the eyeballs neighbor. He tried to say as long as he made his monthly payments he wasnt in debt! then after he lost that arguement he stated it didnt matter because he started out with nothing. And he was living large right now and dont really care about the future. He actually blamed the banker for allowing him to borrow so much. If the economic collapse dont wake folks up the continued clatyclismic earth changes will. to be realistic its going to get worse & much worse.

Interesting, name the 14 worst mass shootings in Western democracies since the nineteen-sixties, as of 2007 when he wrote that article.

Tell me who they were, where were they registered at?

How do you know they, "all had liberal core values" ?


What is your "FACT" source?


BTW- since you like to point out grammar errors you should tell your buddy it should have been, had >the< liberal core values" .

First off; I almost NEVER point of grammar and spelling errors. I ONLY do that when one poster is questioning someone else's level of education (simply because they disagree) while they themselves appear to be lacking in that area.

Second off, you should have placed a period after "interesting." "Name" should have had a capital N. A comma should have been placed after "2007."
This sentence:
"Tell me who they were, where were they registered at?" was not in question form and should not have had a question mark placed after it.
Then there's this"
"How do you know they, "all had liberal core values" ?"
Why is there a space before the question mark?
Continuing; there should also be a comma after the word "errors" in the final sentence. Last, but not least, why is there a space before the period at the end of the last sentence?

Jeez, Dude. Did you really graduate high school?

BTW, my facts are based on the fact that most felons have a liberal mindset. Look it up. Don't confuse that with being democrat or republican. Criminals can have either party affiliation. I guess you have to understand what the liberal mindset is.

We got 7 inches of snow last nite. I hate snow! You cant even see the jonquils that are bloomed! Im out of hay fed the last bales today. it never got down below 34 degrees so the ground is melting the snow from the bottom up. the snow will be gone tomorrow. Maybe its time I got out of the livestock producing buisness. where seriously thinking about just keeping enough for our own use. two goats & a cow and poultry. get to a place where we are not raising any surplus for sale.The heck with paying income taxes and doing paperwork. the heck with going out in the weather to take care of animals. When I was in England they commonly had their barn,s attached to the house. We discussed building a barn on to one side of the house and a garage on the other side. Then we decided that just take the trackhoe and dig a three sided basment on the south side. have it steel reinforced poured concrete with a concrete roof and build garage on the top. The animals could live in the basement and we wouldnt have to go out in inclement weather.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
