I've been laying low for a while but this kind of speak isn't what I'm used to hearing from you. Thought you were reasonable but it seems that you're just another outsider who thinks he knows best.
Think how you like. That's ok. Just remember that America is exceptional. We stand out from the crowd for a reason. People, including our president, who keep telling us we need to be like the rest of the world can either stay where they are or go live in the rest of the world. Those who appreciate American will stay here and fight for its exceptionalism against those who think we need to change. We made one huge change 236 years ago. If we hadn't we'd already be just like the rest of the world. We aren't reverting.

I think a lot of times citizens of certain countries can do nothing about the laws imposed on them and have to accept them, so they rationalize it, whatever it is they're told to do and not to do, have or not have.

You're right. And they may develop a sort of Stockholm syndrome towards their governments. Eh, it's called indoctrination I guess.

Here is a question for the antigunners... If the citizens of North Korea were suddenly armed as American citizens are what would be the downfall? The few nuts who commit murders or the ability to maybe take a stand against Kim Jong Jr? I know the former is the downfall but the latter is just far too important to argue against. Arms=Freedoms.

Considering the vast majority of the people have been brainwashed to love their leader immensely not to mention a substantial chunk of the population is in the armed forces or reserves, I actually cannot see the scenario occurring. Oh, and if you want to see how effective armed citizenry are against even a remotely competent armed government force, look at the current civil war in Syria. Is 40,000+ people dead really a good thing?

Because if you do, you could not be more wrong.

I know this. You are from NZ. But OZ did sell 90% of there natural resources to China. My advice is keep an eye on your Big Corps to ensure they dont follow suite. I only say this because I care about your country in a Im not really getting involved way.

Im saying stereotypes are dangerous cause in my book that invites calling OZ a Commie Nation. Do you see what I mean. Its like bullying in school. If you call names long enough bad things can come out of it. Revenge killing and suicide are the two that come to mind. And lets not start with racial profiling due to stereotyping. Its just an unhealthy attitude IMO. But one Im guilty of from time to time as well.

No comment. I've done the broken record thing enough already. My history on UM already has answers and replies to all of this. Just go read past US threads over the last two years and you'll see where I stand. I'd give you a better reply but your overuse and ill use of the word redneck and its association with guns leaves little else to gain from further conversation.

Really?   That's what you think?    You think Iraq, Iran, Cuba, North Korea and the like are more free than the USA?   Now we see your intelligence level.

By the way, what is a redneck?  Do you think only rednecks own firearms?

People are idiots. They love stereotyping people regardless of the facts. I could just call him a ignorant minded liberal who understands nothing of the constitution and how history always repeats itself.

A man's ethical behaviour should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties and needs; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death. - Albert Einstein

In his defense, he never made reference to those specific countries. You did, in an effort to discredit him, and you're not fooling anyone.

So, what does this have to do with the price of fish? And why are you so concerned about what Australia, a sovereign country with legitimate business interests, does with it's natural resources? If Australian businesses want to sell their products in China, they are perfectly fine to do so. Same with any business in any country. China is GM's second largest market for example.

Don't really see what your problem is.

Then what is the point of your post? If you don't want to comment, what's the point in doing so? Just seems like a waste of time.

Now, where exactly did I mention those countries? This is a very, very poor attempt and using a strawman to discredit someone. If you're going to fling poo, make sure some of it sticks.

Now, as for free countries, I had the Benelux states in mind (I'll give you a little while to figure out what those are) as well as most of Scandinavia and of course, NZ.

You could, but that would be apt. Because I am a liberal person.

I think I would be "more wrong" if I said North Korea was the greatest, freest, most liberal country on the face of the Earth.
If he is going to insult me and tell me how wrong I am, I have no issue with calling him out on his words. :tu:

Here we go.   More insults from the child.
Only a child would believe that a person who owns a gun must be a "redneck".
