    Exactly right.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    LaMid, considering our foreign policy of the last 60 years, this looks pretty hypocritical.

    And yet, some of those not living in or citizens of this country have seen facism close up, whereas we have not. Gives them a perspective worth taking into account, I'd say.
    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

    Well, I am a non-interventionalist for the most part. I don't mind foreign aid but do not appreciate when we go into foreign policy decisions. And I certainly cannot stand when people from other countries who need to look at their own yards want to comment on U.S. domestic matters.

    Possibly right, but the comment was out of line.

    Since it is obvious from your comment that you do not know how to use the words "indoctrination" or the word "fascism" appropriately, and that your comment, also was nothing but ridiculous hyperbole, it's irrelevancy can be summarily dismissed as it has no value. Good job, Pete.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    I suppose that's the obvious tee-hee answer, but I really am curious to hear CC's response.
