    I love that idea.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    That really doesn't explain your earlier posts.

    I will go for that if you go for an increase in taxes to compensate for each war/slash military action we get into.

    No! With what we already spend on the defence budget every year,
    year in year out we should be able to wipe out an insanely large number of people, doncha think?

    I'm surprised more people haven't voted yes. Columbus was a horrible, horrible person and it's shameful we celebrate him.

    We excel at revisionist history.

    I love how some people on this thread pretend the arrival of Western Civilization - which caused the deaths of millions and enslavement of millions more is somehow something that is worthy of celebration but the guy who started it all is the bad guy. In the history of the Americas, Columbus' arrival was probably the least morally revolting part.

    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    I'm not in the least bit surprised that liberals hate America.
    It is my personal belief that it is merely a manifestation of their self-hate being made apparent for the world to see.
