    Is Iraq now the 51st state of the United States? I gather you claim that it is. That is your claim, right?

    We should tell Western Europe and NATO to kiss off, defend themselves from now on and spend their own money for their defense.

    Difficult but not impossible. Isolationism is really the only option for saving the United States at this point in history.

    I don't think you understand the delicate nature of international politics.

    How can one Isolate the United States from the global economy? The global Internet? The ocean offers no protection anymore.

    The nuclear weapons pointed at each national capital around with the world with the warning.... "Stick your fingers in our business we'll blow your head off." ought to offer a good amount of protection. Especially after the second or third mushroom cloud rises over a national capital.

    If we don't have it we don't need it. The internet and other forms of communication can be blocked or shut off when necessary. A very simple "door swings one way - out" policy for travel helps as well.

    I think the correct word for your message is not "delicate," but "impotent."

    Yeah - and **** all the homosexuals, Muslims, and Jews in the USA too. They aren't the majority! Only zippy pinheads talk about minority rights or nation's rights. The Confederacy was right too. If they wanted to form their own slave nations they certainly had a right to do so! Actually, all governments should be eliminated and each person's own property declared an independent country.

    You know, like Russia has had in the Crimea, there is a real danger of white people ceasing to the majority in the USA. It's long overdue to kill off at least 10 or 20,000,000 non-whites like Russia did to maintain a white majority - so white people can continue to claim majority rule like Russia does to non-whites in Crimea.

    Hell, don't let anyone say you aren't tough about your race! There's a website called Stromfront. You might it really cool and with people of a like mind. I wouldn't be so welcome there myself.

    Right on Tigger!

    You are full of surprises! Kudos to you!

    You may want to talk some sense into your "very conservative," compadres. They can't seem to resist supporting a good ol', bloody, costly war.

    You are 100% correct on this one Tigger!
