    You assume.

    It is a good thing that the people who helped start this country had more personal courage of their convictions than that.

    So clear it up for us. Tell me where my assumption are wrong and why you are not like almost all other Americans. Tell us why that computer you type on did not get to you via anything built or serviced or assisted via the power you rail against.

    This should be good.

    Of course, you are powerless to do that and you will not.

    I'm not doing your homework for you. You know how debate works. If you make an assertion, you must prove it. Otherwise it's simply an unfounded assertion.

    Actually, the fact that you are responding on a computer proves his point.

    I did my own homework. And if you are claiming that you can exist in a modern American and never benefit from eminent domain it is an absurd and downright ridiculous claim which defies all logic and all experience.

    And that absolutely shifts the burden of proof to you demanding that you show why it is you who can live differently that almost every other American.

    But again - you persist in this sillyness just to pretend to avoid the consequences of your own hypocrisy.

    Sometimes the obvious is difficult to see.

    You are asking me to prove that you live in a society and benefit from it like almost every other American when your own actions typing on a computer and posting here prove the very thing you are trying to deny? Even other posters can see through that tactic.
