However, it has sapped ambition and created hordes of chirping little birds demanding mommy government feed them. People who might have soared with eagles are now never get out of the nest because of that strategy

    sadly for you you fail to comprehend that that theory is not accepted when there also is implied coercion. perhaps try an analogy over something I have not successfully litigated.

    Yes, we get that you BELIVE that because you want to BELIEVE that and you use your BELIEF SYSTEM to support your claims. We all get that. But do you have any actual evidence that Democrats do this and are alone in doing this?

    Manc Skipper is 100% right in telling you that you give your cooperation and consent every day you stay here under our system and laws. There is no Berlin Wall holding you here in the nation you seem to loathe with every fiber of your being.

    that you spend so much time trying to convince yourself that I am wrong establishes that I am right

    the GOP panders to people on other levels such as claiming they are for christian values (LOL) and they and they alone are for law and order. They also run on keeping the dems from taking more taxes from us who pay most of the federal taxes.

    Remind me of your law degree and what state you are licensed in: seizing property or forcing someone to leave the nation they were born in wipes out the implied consent argument.

    Just cause you want to live off the work of others doesn't mean TD loathes this nation.

    You need a law degree to post here and give your opinion?!?!?!?!?!?

    There goes the neighborhood.

    Everyday you stay here you do so of your own free will. Is there someone who is keeping you prisoner? Is there a place where are you being held in American against your will? There is no Berlin wall here and you can leave at any time.

    Sure he does. It comes across loud and clear in post after post after post in thread after thread after thread. He has gross contempt for our system of government, for the American people and for our elected government. He calls them mobs and wants to deny them such basic American rights as the right to vote. That is about as anti-American as you can be without being an enemy combatant.
