    Freedom?

    Seems like everyone has a selfish motive for taking (or not taking) action.  Governments are driven by consumerist greed, religions lack ethical integrity, social structures support ego, paranoia and collective guilt.  What's happened to genuine compassion?  Where...

    Still The Best Place In The World...

    I'm a die hard liberal Democrat, but I also know what side my bread is buttered on. The United States is still the best place in the world, no matter what anyone says. Can't change my attitude, so don't bother trying.

    WTF?

    I'm sorry but you people are really making me angry.  REALLY making me angry. There IS such a thing as a free country.  You confuse semantics with intelligent discourse. It's a country where soldiers don't come and kill your family or rape your mother in front of you...

    Let Me Choose

    Communism

    I think that if we lived in a free world we wouldnt need a permit to protest, or a leader to tell us what we can and cant do. To hell with that. Free means only 1 thing and 1 thing only FREE. If that is so hard to understand than you are on the wrong site. Free means free not...

    What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men. That is what love looks like. If you passed her in your city You would call her...

    I Don't Know If True Freedom Even Exists In This World

    It probably won't as long as we have money. Socialism is the closest I've heard tell of to freedom, and so many people think it's opressive, why? Whatever thier reason(s) it just makes me think all the more that true freedom doesn't exist. Is the human race even capable of what...

    Freedom isn't free. Support your troops- support their cause. You can't trash the war in which their dying and still say you're supporting them. It doesn't make sense.
