    Obviously, a single person wouldn't stand a chance. I'm talking about an organized insurgency.

    Your hands would be tied, unless you get in contact with a bunch of freedom fighters or something. I dont know. I just dont think the possible impact on society is worth legalizing it...
    What impact?

    ...considering the chances of your government turning on you is minimal, if there is any chance at all.
    Why is that? Has human nature changed in the past one hundred years?

    Cool, my brother was in the army. When did you serve?
    2004-2008.

    True say. We are raping the Taliban though. I just dont see a bunch of American freedom fighters toppling the governments domestically. The Taliban cant manage it and there only up against 50,000 overseas American soldiers.
    If 10% of the US population revolted, the size of the insurgency would be roughly 30 million. The United States is one of the largest countries on the planet, with some of the most varied and difficult terrain. Quelling an insurgency in the United States would be virtually impossible.

    Our perceptions of "freedom" are different. So radically different that it reflects in our own personal politics as well as our policy.
    That the Europeans don't see their chains doesn't mean the chains aren't there.

    Most employers in Europe cannot fire employees without God's approval.

    Less Free.

    Unfortunately, the United States doesn't obey it's own Constitution, so many of our freedoms are eroding, too.
    some states in the US do not have a "right to work" law. Which basically means that they cannot fire any one on the spot. If they are going to they are going to have to tell the employee beforehand. Also the right to bear arms isn't good unless you get to bare the same arms as the government which we don't get(excluding WMDs').

    Dude, I have no idea who the hell this freak is. I doubt he's stalking me, though, because if he had seen me he would never say I wasn't impressive...
