I posted my last entry (read that entry below... "We the Sheeple") on Yahoo-360. The only responses I got were from the same person. I'd like to post his first response.
The reason the 60's are gone is because most of them were dope heads and were anti-American ...over 3,000 Americans lives where lost on 9/11 where are there civil-liberties in the grave with them, we are at war and you want anti-war. Here is a good cause for you last year 2005 50,000 not 500 or 5,000 but 50,0000 Americans lost there lives by drug over dose , murder(18,000) car accident, and my personal favorite suicide(11,000 +) I'm a Nurse and I see death every day ...we are train to fight in WAR thats what we do! if you want to protest, there 50,000 graves protest that and there are 3,000 + graves from 9/11 protest that! stop wasteing your time with train professional!
Aside from the grammar issues, I have no problem with his response. In fact, he CLEARLY proves to me WHY we need not be in this war. If we have problems right in our own land, WHY are we in someone else's country, raising havoc? That's a no-brainer.
Every Saturday on public access TV, they show a speech given by Minister Farrakhan. I tune in ALL the time to hear the knowledge he spits. Today's speech FOCUSED in on the United States government, specifically the CIA and how they INTENTIONALLY seek to destroy any kind of movement that is not in the interests of corporate America. He also went on to say that this is done internationally as well. They prepare the replacement then oust the person in charge. Think SADDAM HUSSEIN. Now America is in Iraq and the general public thinks we should be giving the people of Iraq a democracy. Is that what they want?
Does democracy mean freedom? Has democracy been a good thing for America? Democracy wasn't the intent of the founding fathers of this country. We are a republic. In a republic, the people are the MASTERS and the government is his servent. In a democracy, the will of the majority is law. Anything is allowed so long as the majority approves. A lynch mob qualifies as a democracy.
Let me quote from the U.S. Army Training Manual TM2000-05, 1928
Democracy, n. "A government of the masses. Authority derived through mass meeting or any form of "direct" expression. Results in mobocracy. Attitude toward property is communistic - negating property rights. Attitude toward law is that the will of the majority shall regulate, whether it be based upon deliberation or governed by passion, prejudice, and impulse, without restraint or regard to consequences. Results in demagogism, license, agitation, discontent, anarchy."
Interesting. The U.S. Army has been successful in instituting democracy in the Middle East. The results are demagogism, license, agitation, discontent, and COMPLETE and TOTAL ANARCHY.
I'm not sure if I even addressed the issues that bruh man brought to me, as was my original intent with this post. However, I got a lotta things off my chest that I felt like speaking on.
