We were not talking about whether someone qualified can be president. We were talking about whether all presidents were patriots. That was the context. And it was clear that is what was being addressed as it relates to presidents being vetted.
A fake what wouldn't wouldn't make it through the vetting process? A fake patriot wouldn't. Someone who didn't love their country would be exposed during the vetting process.
And while I know you are a dumbass you aren't this stupid. Which is why you quoted me out of context. Who do you think you are fooling?
I was specific and clear. I responded to your vetting claim.

Incidentally, how would you vet someone's patriotism if they faked it?

The actions of a patriot and a fake patriot would be similar - that's what faking patriotism means - making your actions similar to a patriot.

How do you vet that?

Nevertheless, you made a false accusation.

I do not think extramarital affairs are examples of lacking patriotism. I never said anything that can rightly be construed as such.

Uh, we have a fake as potus right now. I know you won't agree with that but many do. I agree questions if one is a patriot or not is a no win situation. No doubt in my mind when President Obama in his own words call some of us "tea baggers" there is zero question in my mind his heart is filled with hate toward some of the citizens of this nation. No point in listing the endless examples of his disdain. He is the President and my President and I consider him a fake, an insincere person in any way it can be measured. Does he love the nation? Sure parts of it. Do I think he loves me? Nope. When he and many of his supporters with smears call me a terrorist and need to be watched not feeling love. Btw, that is a lie.

But you act all clueless about "In God We Trust" or the fact that American military personnel swear an oath to God.
Being a Korean isn't a good enough excuse to claim to understand old Germany and not understand current America.
<quoted text>
Yes you are.
You're claiming that "Gott Mitt Uns" means all German military were Christians and everything they did was "in the name of God".
You've just been called out.
No more than you.

Do you really believe that all the men and women that stand and fight for this country are Christians?

They're not.

I don't know the oath. I've never been in the military and I don't believe for a second that they have to proclaim their trust in a god to be a part of it.

I know this government does a lot of stupid things but that would be right on top for me.

Are you saying that people who won't say they're Christians can't be in the military?

Are you really saying that?

"I… figured a way to get rid of all the lesbians and queers, but I couldn’t get it past the Congress. Build a great big large fence, hundred… fifty or a hundred-mile long. Put all the lesbians in there. Fly over and drop some food. Do the same thing with the queers and the homosexuals. And have that fence electrified till they can’t get out. Feed ‘em and… and you know what, in a few years they’ll die out. D’you know why? They can’t reproduce." - Pastor Charles L. Worley of Providence Road Baptist Church in Maiden, North Carolina

I would suggest that he do an experiment: Put 100 Christian women in a pen surrounded by an electrified fence, and 100 Christian men in another. Then take 100 lesbians and 100 gay men and put them together in another pen. Then see who reproduces.

You are correct - Obama is not a patriot.

He was also not vetted.

He is an anti-western, anti-American Marxist radical. The political mafia of Chicago stuffed an empty shirt with him and stood him up in front of a teleprompter.

Well to be fair, would your characterization s of the president be any better than his of you? Although I would be surprised if you could find something that quotes him calling people 'teabaggers'. And he has been called everything from a secret Muslim to a traitor who got into office so he could carry out his plan to destroy the country to being compared to Hitler. And that's from other elected officials as well as citizens

Obviously people will have those they consider political allies and enemies

But I think you do touch on something important and that is it does make me question claims of patriotism by those who engage in hate speech and rhetoric and call others traitors and enemies of state because they disagree with their policies. People should be able to have opposing ideologies and still acknowledge there are different ways to try to achieve the same ends. We can criticize policies and ideologies without trying to return to the days of McCarthyism

Some of my family on my wife's side lives in Chicago. No better example to see how messed up the nation is. A girl that performed at Obama's inauguration was shot in the back days latter. In a city that is a shining example of more and tougher gun laws that do nothing. But year lets rant about Rush or whoever the lefts' bogyman is today.

Let's talk about a one world government, like Tide brought up.
He continues to call me a liar for what is at best case scenario his failure to take context into consideration when he replied to a post. Do you often allow bogus challenges to your credibility slide?

But I will drop it if only because it will only be redundant at this point.

I haven't read Tide's post yet. I just took a break from shoveling and am reading a few posts while having a smoke. I will look into the other discussion when I get back

I agree.

But you must also acknowledge that just because German military had God on their belt buckles does not mean they were Christians. It's not like they got to pick out their wardrobe.
I don't know the oath. I've never been in the military and I don't believe for a second that they have to proclaim their trust in a god to be a part of it.
It's called the Oath of Enlistment. It has a proud history.

"I,_____, do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God."
