    It could be improved.

    Re: Should America tear down the Statue of Liberty?

    I am not going to vote in this poll because it is obvious starting with the OP, the lack of understanding behind the Statue of Liberty also known as the goddess of liberty "Libertas". The symbolism is significant. And she can be linked to the philosopher Cicero and his thinking. Cicero was profoundly influential upon the moral and political thought of the founders. Cicero spoke about why a republic is the most desirable form of government and how an ideal republic should be structured. It's a shame that obviously many are not aware of that. But then again we are no longer a country that encourages a classic liberal arts education.

    Plus on a side note: They invented French fries!

    Where would a lot of people be without French fries?

    What I like best about the Statue of Liberty is that a lot of xenophobes don't like it.

    That's an excellent reason to keep it

    When the colonies launched their revolutionary war for liberty in 1776 they were violating English law.

    I like having the constant reminder of what the country is supposed to be about.


    Good point.

    But some people will never get it.

    In layman terms, the Statue of Liberty sends a message to the rest of the world, stay the **** home and look at what we were able to accomplish.
    You are capable of doing the same thing in your own country.






    I never got that message from the Statue of Liberty.
