Sorry man, you are talking out of your hat.Do you think I disagree? We have been slowly moving away from the Constitution and toward Marxist European socialism. As have you.
Well then I suggest you buy a passel of credit default swaps and as any good capitalist you can make a killing when the time comes for america.,In the end you will suffer the same fate no matter how proud of your socialism you are today. I believe it is inevitable.
Sigh, more empty rhetoric devoid of meaning but sounding lofty enough to convince the uneducated and uninformed. Of course, you would have quite the handle on children, fools and knaves, so I won't debate your little character assassination attempt.Those who prefer to be subjects are no doubt pleased with the level of tyranny we have today and would prefer far more in the future. They are children, fools, and knaves. Those of us who are citizens prefer liberty to slavery.
And where are these jobs going to suddenly appear from? I beleive that the vast majority of those on welfare and food stamps crave the dignity and positive outlook a decent job provides, not to mention the paycheck to support their families. this seems to be the differnce between you and I. You think all those people are lazy welfare queens, while I think of them as temporarily "inconvenienced". You condemn the whole barrel of apples for the few bad ones found in it.The poor need jobs. They do not need maternalistic government. They need the dignity of standing on their own rather than crouching and kissing the hand that feeds them in return for their vote.
Interesting that you have no concept of what I'm actually talking about. I didn't imply that "choosing for oneself is greed". I stated quite clearly state that those that think as you do are motivated by greed and prejudice and (i'll add this one now) conceit.I cannot speak for Christians. I can speak to your error. You believe that choosing for oneself is greed. I suspect it is because you have no idea what freedom is like. Your way leads to the most awful consequences.
the Canadian way will not lead to awful consequences. It will lead to continued prosperity and strengthening of our social vision and cultural evolution.
My Karma ran over your Dogma.
You mean what other firms could offer privitization of warfare services? Or is logisitic services? or a few billion in overbilling services? or build temporary housing that electrocutes shower takers? or multiple instances of rape and abuse of female contractors? there were a ton of other companies. But if you recall at the time, the whole Iraqi shebang was going to be paid for by Iraqi oil - how many US companies got oil contracts after the "end of hostilities"? Cheney's nose grew from washington to LA on that little fiction.
We are contemporaries. Hitting the big six oh in may.
so you are aware of the continuing saga of corruption at the highest levels and the plausible deniability that obfuscates matters.

Actual reality and the beliefs found in the minds of some who call themselves 'conservative seldom coincide
“And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”
~ James Madison, letter to Edward Livingston, July 10, 1822
I said, "The poor need jobs. They do not need maternalistic government. They need the dignity of standing on their own rather than crouching and kissing the hand that feeds them in return for their vote."
To which you replied,
No. There were not. There was one who was able to deliver. Nice try though.You mean what other firms could offer privitization of warfare services? Or is logisitic services? or a few billion in overbilling services? or build temporary housing that electrocutes shower takers? or multiple instances of rape and abuse of female contractors? there were a ton of other companies.
There were dozens of other companies in Iraq providing services the military wanted to buy. But no other capable of filling the need as Halliburton did.
