The U.S.S.A

Ok so my brother sent me this picture and I damn near wet myself when he said this is what our country has become.

The U.S.S.A

I post this for a laugh not to promote a political agenda...we all have a brain and our own views and hopefully we all know what to do about those views

Well it was Thomas Jefferson that said "A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine. "

Our country was founded on the idea of a Constitutional Republic. We have now, due to capitalism, been formed into a Democracy. Democratic governments always fail. To be honest ... I'm surprised we've lasted as long as we have given our current form of government. The last great democracy ended in France with the people dragging the representatives out into the streets and beheading them. Remember the famous line .... "Let them eat cake!" ? It was Marie Antoinette and the French Revolution.

From the bullet press according to ability to the target according to need....
Thus a man should endeavor to reach this high place of courage with all his heart, and, so trying, never be backward in war.

That's not funny. At all. I feel it is just terrible propaganda and... well, this'll be locked soon. Just to warn you, this generally doesn't fly here.

-1.24274238 miles, because Russians don't need scopes-
-Gun control was the Klan's favorite law, how can you advocate a set of laws designed to allow the denigration of a people?-

You're correct Thomme, it doesn't fly well at all.
