    I believe that there should be some standards in admission for potential States in the Union. For example, I would [I]tolerate[I] the admission of Canadian provinces excluding Quebec into the Union. And by tolerating I mean accepting their admission though I am not exactly for it. I would be against say the admission of Mexican States to the U.S due to incompatible legal systems. I would oppose strongly any admission of Theocratical States in the Union. I also believe you are deluded that the United States and its people have the resources to hold the world in hegemony or would want to given the sacrifices that it would require.

    Honestly, so long as there was a decent rear area I could store the wife and kids in, I'd be kind of excited. I almost pity the landing force dumb enough to take on an American citizenry.

    I predict they take at least a Divisions' worth of losses in the lower half of Louisiana alone.
    I believe a landing between the Sabine River and the Alabama line would be out of the question.

    They are disinterested in fighting for their freedom, or disinterested in fighting additional political wars, because there is a difference, surely you would agree.

    No but we've been giving it one hell of a try for a century and there's been lots of ruin to show for it.

    Re: If USA started a world war, then be invaded by the world, would you accept draft?

    Given the following scenarios I give the explanations for either not voting or voting.

    I do not feel I have the freedom to say what I will do:

    I an now giving my onion and thus does not apply.

    I would proudly fight for my Government:

    This is a wrong attitude for a free people to have. Also I do not consider it my government really, there is too much control by elites and it is restricted to two Parties and I do not think that people with a libertarian philosophy will be able to have even a choice in governance. Also since that our government is no longer bound by the Constitution as intended, then it cannot be considered to be a just and valid government but one that dominates the People.

    I would proudly fight for my Freedom:

    Are we really a free people or are just allowed to be free in those areas that the governing class would allow us to be free in? Unless there is a significant hope that we would overthrow them and their tools then this would be moot.

    I would proudly fight for my draft beer.:

    Unless the invaders are Muslim then this would not be an issue. If so then I would fight for other reasons since I am a teetotaler.


    I would fight US government if I saw it starts losing :

    See option for Other.


    Other

    Firstly, I assume that it is an unjust war that the US brought about. Secondly, If the US were on the point of being invaded that would be an opportune time for some State such as Texas to secede. Since I live in Oklahoma hopefully we would join them; after all, Texas might be our adversary but DC is our enemy. And while Oklahoma has some of the strictest rules to allow third Parties after that It would be easier since there is no election for President of the US or fear about weakening some "conservative" coalition in Congress.

    I'd probably keep it close to home with my neighbors. It would be way past the point of helping the entire country.

    I would bet many of them would go into the fetal position once they realize the government wasn't going to save them.

    When in the last 70 years has the US government fought a war for the purposes of saving Americans?
