    Sometime in the future we will look back at the chain of events and see that much of what we do today is almost as bad as the slavery of the past. Im proud to be on the right side of the issue, even if certain young punks only concerned with getting high laugh it off.
    Wow. I think I'm getting a tear. Wait no. More laughing at somebody who's clearly trying too hard.

    You put way too much emphasis on the softballs you are lobbing at us.

    Im hitting em out of the park with minimal effort.

    But please, tell us again about the virtues of democracy while you cower in the corner smoking pot and wondering how it was that your ancestors were held in bondage.

    I play Fallout 3 so, like, I'm totally prepared for the post-apocalyptic future.

    What I find laughable is that you actually believe what you preach. Which is a little scary in the sense that it verifies the claims so many on the left make that gun owners are part of a gun powder sniffing cult. I have to wonder whether it's all those erections from reading Ron Paul blogs that are draining the blood from your brain or whether it's just a faulty gene in the minds of so many extreme conservatives. Probably combination of both.

    But look - since you're having so much fun using liberty like some sort of Google keyword and covering yourself in that one of a kind U.S. flag(woven from the dead skin that falls off Ron Paul's forehead at every one one of his rallies), I hear that they are having an ammunition sale at one of the GTA4 gun stores. If you hurry you can make it to the sale AND make it back home just in time to finish that Ron Paul altar you've been working on for so long. How does that sound? Go!

    Preparing for "hard times" isn't panic, it's prudence. If there's one thing human history ought to teach any person it is that hard times will come--and they won't announce themselves ahead of time.

    People should always prepare for hard times. When hurricane season comes to the Gulf, every year I check the lantern batteries, store up a few gallons of water and non-perishable foodstuffs, prep the first aid kit, sharpen the knives, and generally make ready to be thrown back to the 19th century by Mother Nature.

    When times are good, I build up my reservoirs of wealth, in preparation for when times are bad. I have been predominantly self employed for most of the past two decades, and my capacity to survive in that paradigm depends on having the self-discipline to store the largess of today against the famine of tomorrow.

    If I see an increase in general lawlessness in my neighborhood, I will most certainly add an accumulation of ammunition and firepower to my preparations.

    That doesn't make me a survivalist. That makes me a survivor.

    Have you seen more or less lawlessness in your neighborhood lately? In case you have...

    [ame]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crime_in_the_United_States[/ame]

    In 2004 America's crime rate is roughly the same as in 1970, with the homicide rate being at its lowest level since 1965. Overall, the national crime rate was 3982 crimes per 100,000 residents, down from 4852 crimes per 100,000 residents thirty years earlier in 1974 (-17.6%).[4]
    Violent Crime Rate :



    Property Crime Rate :



    All this talk about buying guns just in case...but uh yeah... no I don't see crime in America getting worse or for that matter our country having reached a point of no return. That of course depends on who you are though so I guess if you ask anybody too far right they'll probably think we're about 20 minutes away from complete implosion. Rivers of lava and all that other jazz.

    It sounds like since you cant properly defend your absurd love of democracy, that you have to bring up subjects not even at play.

    Ron Paul is simply a man..a man not being discussed on this thread by anyone but you.
