How kind of our ancestors to pay the indians in beads for Manhattan Island and then give them, or other's like them, small pox laden blankets as we herded them onto 'reservations' and stole their land.
Our ancestors were the invaders. They had the guns.
It is what it is, Murphy. William Penn of Philadelphia, was one of my ancestors.
Quick, junior & Kosdick...start screaming 'liar, liar'
This is from wiki, so I'm not sure its veracity, but you can google it yourself

According to the document by Pieter Janszoon Schagen our people (ons Volck)—Peter Minuit is not mentioned explicitly there—acquired Manhattan in 1626 from Native American Lenape people in exchange for trade goods worth 60 guilders, often said to be worth 24 US$, though (by comparing the price of bread and other goods) it actually amounts to around $1,000 in modern currency

There is only one incident confirmed where smallpox blankets were used

Well I heard an awful lot of chatter and moaning about stolen elections in 2000.
When you build up enough of a base by giving out freebies then you have rigged the elections and your vote becomes useless. Kind of how I felt voting in South Carolina. I knew my state would go Romney so I shouldn't have really even waited in line 2 hours to vote. Just like how many in Illinois probably felt knowing that the decisions of Chicago would override their decisions. Now when the republicans want to change how the EC works the liberals pitch a fit, but not requiring ID to vote and trying to get as many illegals into the country and making them citizens to get more D voters is fair? It's been the game plan all along. Democrats could care less about blacks and they sure as hell don't care about Hispanics. Anyone who believes this is an idiot. They give you lip service until they get your vote then you are conveniently forgotten until the next election cycle.
I personally hope the independent 3rd party becomes a viable voting option in this country. Until then I have to choose who I feel is the lesser of two evils. Last election it was do you want a democrat or a socialist? Obama regular or Obama light. I chose Obama light. Then again I had no freebies promised to me to vote for Obama.
Huh?

I asked if your research into the Quebecqois had provided any insight about the power of the ballot, or civil disobedience.

Kind of off topic there Doc. Have you looked at the most recent election results up in Quebec?

In response to your US election comments though, it sounds as if your just upset that the Democratic party ran a better campaign, with more electable candidates.

Oh well.

The PQ formed a minority government at the last election, but odds are against another referendum, Quebec is not a donor province. Alberta is more likely to become a US State than Quebec an independent country.

Electable = Center-left

I'd rather lose and eventually push for self determination than compromise principle.

That's right, Fred. Lie, and then when called on it, call those people liars. Karl Rove would be proud of that manuever. You can't make that revolution claim with a straight face. How many Hail Marys do you have to do for lying?
Let's see some posts that call for revolution, Che. I see posts where people are very clear in their intent to defend themselves.

Yes, really. Generally peaceful.

You can't change history by focusing upon one single group included in a decades long movement that has generally used civil disobedience, political pressure, and the franchise to pursue its goals.

Why is it you chirp outlandishly about people dying in the streets when your 2nd Amendment rights are ostensibly "threatened", but when others actually do assert rights to self determination, you claim they're thugs?

No. You're misreading it. We keep asking when its gonna happen and how, because it really is quite comical.

Old white men with guns and pensions who piss and moan about people who actually really do have the gumption to hit the streets and statehouses to protest and petition their government, they aren't gonna do squat.

Ha! I see Marois stirring it up in ways Réné Levesque would be proud of...trying to remove the Canadian flag from the floor of the National Assembly, sidling up to Alex Salmond in Edinburgh to flip off both London and Ottawa and trying to increase the powers of the Language Police even more. Stay tuned for more separatist shenanigans.

Self defense is something you will never grasp.
Go live in Quebec as an English speaking Canadian. You'll experience the soft tyranny of a "generally peaceful" society.

Shatting on police cars and piles of sexual assault reports.

That's your protestors, we cleaned up the trash at ours, and one day we will clean it up in your 'hood.

Remember the Marine vet on Piers Morgan, there are many more like him.

Well whatever you're sayin isn't clear. I don't watch Piers Morgan, so it doesn't click.

All I'm saying is that I find it comical that some folks get upset when Americans hit the streets and statehouses, call em thugs, and then claim they're gonna huddle with their guns and make love to em in protest when winds of regulation start a blowin.

Get a clue. I see no disrespect for the American flag in Texas. I see no persecution by statute of non-English speakers. I don't see the governor traveling to schmooze with foreign separatist politicians.
Weak, especially for you, Duke.

If Quebec votes for independence, they will probably be eagerly kicked out, as with Scotland.

Also, both movements are left wing.

Texas self-determination is right wing.

If Texas held an independence vote, you would clamor for invasion.

Are you referring to unions or occupiers?

We have called both thugs, the title is easier to hoist onto the occufilth, but the unions have had some violence assoicated, more than a Tea Party event for sure.
