    We have slutty diners, MUCH better beer and real football here in Europe and sharia is indeed creeping into certain places here. Your argument is invalid
    Grant it I like to play soccer more than I do football, but us Americans really do not like theocracy. Well except those radical Christian Conservatives who are bigger threat to liberty and freedom than radical Islam here at home. But even at that there isnt much of a chance that America would become a theocracy, they just dont have the numbers anymore.

    But Sharia wouldnt be accepted it would be forced just like everywhere else that it has been implemented. There would be a lot of drama before we got anywhere near that happening.

    A President and majority of what? What politicians in this country want to implement any form of Sharia?
    There should be Instant Runoff Voting

    No offense... but US beer is crap compared to European trademarks. Holstein, Becks, Staropramen, Carlsberg... and the list can go on to infinity. Best beers in the world.

    I put Budweiser on the same rank as EFES beer from Turkey... and just so you get the idea, EFES in turkish means beer.

    Do you really think people who support things like SSM, the legalization of marijuana, equal rights for women, bacon, alcohol, etc, etc would let anyone make those things illegal? It's just ridiculous.

    Well you seemed to imply that it was somewhat possible to have a president and majority of Congress who support Sharia. If no politicians believe in implementing Sharia currently, then how do you think they'll take over Congress and the Presidency?

    Even moderate Muslims wouldn't invoke Sharia in the states. You'd have to find a loud, growing sect of radical Muslims in America big enough to alter policy. If they were to even begin it, they'd be slaughtered.

    Hell, I'd just drive by anyone down here with a Confederate flag on their pick-up and tell them what's happening. You think the Klan's gone? They'll be back, in huge numbers, and even celebrated if radical Islam became a distinct force in this country.

    I'm not talking about Bud, that **** is nothing but piss water.

    I'm talking about DogFishHead, Samuel Adams, Sweetwater, Stone, Sierra Nevada, the list really goes on and on.

    It's also hilarious that you mention Budweiser as an example of crappy American beer, while mentioning Becks as an excellent European beer, when Becks is owned by the same company that produces Budweiser.

    Um, nobody implied this to be the case. The op question was "do you think Sharia law is a real possiblity in the US". My response is that without a president and majority in congress who supported it, it wouldn't happen. Is this really so difficult to comprehend?
