    it proves the liberal mentality to be treasonous to the very principles which a nation is defined.
    but it is a worthless discussion. liberals will stand against this country, regardless of the life this
    country has blessed them with.
    This, of course, is absurd and is quite an ironic post. There are several liberals here, me included, who identified that they are proud to be an American. You have demonstrated that inflexible thinking of a conservative hack, perfectly.

    Actually, you tied yourself in a knot. I doubt you'll be able to get out of it.

    Perhaps in lews-land, but I have learned rather quickly that lews-land has precious little in common with reality.

    I can take the bad with the good.

    I'll always be proud of the USA.

    Pride is a vice.
    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.

    You think Cuba is "state-Capitalist?" They call themselves socialist. They held a parade on May 14th of this year, explicitly to "honor socialism." When Raul Castro raised state pensions in April of 2008, he went on the record saying it was honor those who defended socialism. Defection of Cuban doctor is a trend that has been growing for years, with medical professionals taking back toilet paper when they're abroad. Trust me, I know all I need to know about your ideology. I've read the rants from Bakunin (in the original), Murray Rothbard, as well as other scions of various anarchist branches.

    I have absolutely considered the implications of rights not being inborn. I've made peace with it a long time ago, because it's the truth. If you choose to believe in some code that all humans are owed, then I laugh at your supposed atheism. All you're doing is praying to a different "god." You are born with nothing. You die with nothing. You are owed nothing.

    The fact that you're arguing the United States is the world's most prolific perpetrator of terrorism by its own definition is laughable, considering that same definition doesn't recognize acts perpetrated by recognized states. Terrorism by that definition is necessarily sub-national. Anything perpetrated by a state (according to the US definition) is considered something else.

    Honestly, it's hardly worth validating you with responses at all.
    he's not wrong about the sports.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
