    And yet here you are on your computer using technology. Classic hypocrisy.

    Ok, I don't think you'll have many followers to go backwards.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Not at all. It's about how the technology is used and whether it's needed or not. There's no need for a passenger car that does 125 mph. You won't find any porn on my phone or PC. You won't find lots of games or other crap either. Why does a 12 year old need a smartphone?

    That's why I'm not a fan of giving them an option.

    Do you NEED to post on a message board to survive? Do you NEED to go to a restaraunt with your fiance to eat? Here's a hint, it's not about need but want. You yourself indulge in things you don't NEED and the proof of that is you being here.

    My being here us more about other people's survival than my own and I can't actually remember the last time my fiance and I went out to dinner. I indulge in very few things I want. We do indulge in some things she wants but not even many of those.

    How is you being here about other people's survival? Noone ever follows what you say nor have you changed anyone's mind. You can excuse your ego all you want, but the fact you are here is an indulgement on your part. You don't NEED to be here, yet you are.

    And your comment hit the nail on the head, no matter the quantity you still admit you indulge in things you don't need. Therefore your comments are irrelevant because even YOU cannot do that.

    That's fine. The question may someday be are there more people on my side or yours who are willing and capable of killing to promote their vision. I know we both are, but who has more supporters who do?

    I can only hope that day doesn't arrive. Freedom will always prevail over subjugation.
