    The United States is not the equivalent of the free world. It was not the first democracy in the world. It is not the biggest democracy in the world.

    Talk about superiority complex.

    I'm guessing in your mind, Britain is an 'imprisoned world'...?
    Where is there more freedom than in the USA? I'll wait for an answer before I start packing.

    Funny, the ancient Empire of Rome had more freedoms than we did at this point in time and they were in fact a Democracy please go learn something about history.

    As a matter of fact in my own opinion we have lost a lot of our freedoms thanks to the Patriot Act. Also the fact that Bush Jr. had so much detain for our constitution that he investigated people that were against him Ala the Quakers and other groups that were against war. Funny, and NO I will not forgive the Republican party for people that were down right stomping on the constitution and my rights to freedom of expression, and the freedoms we all hold dear.

    Once again, to put this so-called "Palin Doctrine" in perspective, as a CIVILIAN, Sarah Palin has the freedom to say anything she wants. Doesn't mean she had this brilliant idea before anyone else; it just means that as a CIVILIAN, she can afford to say such things publically WITHOUT any political backlash.

    I think Zimmer and folks who truly believe that Palin was so far 'ahead of the curve" should really take that into consideration before labeling her "the smartest woman outside the room".

    ROTFLOL... I didn't know you were that old, nor did I realize slavery was a cornerstone of freedom!

    As a matter of fact in my own opinion we have lost a lot of our freedoms thanks to the Patriot Act.
    I do declare... they sure did get some very good look-a-likes of Sens. Leahy, Reid and Dodd. And Jeeezuz... I've never seen Reid smile before or after this photo. You do realize Dems voted for the PA, don't you?


    Also the fact that Bush Jr. had so much detain for our constitution that he investigated people that were against him Ala the Quakers and other groups that were against war.
    Bush "targeted" Quakers? No... and LINK.

    Funny, and NO I will not forgive the Republican party for people that were down right stomping on the constitution and my rights to freedom of expression, and the freedoms we all hold dear.
    ROTFLOL... Really? Which Hitler sign weren't you permitted to wave? Instead of hot air, how about an example or two of your restricted rights?

    Too bad you folks didn't take this precise advice before going gaga over an inexperienced in life, commerce, and executive skills but fine telepromteur reading Marxist Community Agitator.

    Difference is she was ahead of the curve... and are you implying Obama is a pure political animal that looks at his own skin first before doing what is right for the nation? It sounds like it, and he behaves like it too. Thanks for revealing the truth about your agitator.

    I'm sure Palin came up with the idea all by herself... . Like a pop star, her songs are probably written for her.

    It’s an inaction that suggests the Arab League won’t be the only institution that might find itself surprised by the logic of the alert Alaskan.
    I'm sure they're watching her closely. Wow. lol.

    Zimmer - you keep avoiding the major question here: how does one position of Palin mean anything special or important?

    Why is this such a big thing to you?

    Palin has taken many many positions on many many issues both large and small, both important and insignificant over the last few years and people make up their mind about her based on all that they see. Why do you think this one single position is so darn important?

    The Netherlands used to be. I think they've closed down their boarders somewhat.

    That is such a silly question and I hope doesn't mean you don't understand the basic differences that exist between countries and how impossible it would be to decide which countries are "more free" in general, especially in western democracies. For example in the Netherlands you have more freedom in terms of personal consumption of drugs and products which in the US would be seriously illegal, but in other areas they have less freedom. Or for example Somalia has no government and therefore is technically "most free" because it has no laws whatsoever, of course the lack of laws is actually hampering freedom because instead of gov't law people are ruled by gang and warlord laws. Or for example economic freedom, relating to the ease of starting a new business, taxes, work environment, wages, gov't spending, trade relations, etc
    Country rankings for trade, business, fiscal, monetary, financial, labor and investment freedoms
    Take a look at that website, now you may be pissed to find the US in 9th place for economic freedom but the website's reasoning actually follow into your political arguments. For example it rates US fiscal freedom at a 68.3 because:
    U.S. tax rates are burdensome. The top income and corporate tax rates are 35 percent. Other taxes include an estate tax and excise taxes. Additional income, sales, and property taxes are assessed at the state and local levels. In the most recent year, overall tax revenue as a percentage of GDP was 26.9 percent. Should authorities choose not to extend tax cuts enacted in 2001 and 2003, the tax rate on the top individual income bracket will jump to 39.6 percent beginning in 2011, and the top capital gains tax rate will increase from 15 percent to 20 percent
    And there is an expanded explanation if you care to look, and it has a similar argument to yours about gov't spending.

    Now I know as a cheerleader, not that there's anything wrong with that from time to from, you like to believe the world is so simple as to allow a statement like "We are the most free" to actually have meaning, but frankly it doesn't.

    Sorry about getting off topic, but I had to post about Bush Jr with partisans politics because this is what this whole thread is about. Plain did NOT I repeat suggest this first and it should be called the Plain doctrine this has been proven by others in this thread.
