Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
Now, if only there were some evidence to support my contention that the federal government is a union of independent sovereign nation-states. Hm, if it only contained the word "union", I'd really have a good argument.
(BTW, Your memory is faulty. You made a mistake, and a significant one.)
how about "cracker"... i'm guessing that not racist or bigoted in your dictionary either.
i gotta say, i'm so not impressed with you tonight... you've taken a big hit on the consistency scale... your claim that you hate racists and bigots is false, blatantly so.
So very bad example. A better example of the "nation-state" would be the re-unification of East and West Germany into one German state to match the one German nation.
