You do realize that being against illegal immigration isn't hating Mexicans right?

Oh and this:

"Name calling is a cognitive bias and a technique to promote propaganda. Propagandists use the name-calling technique to incite fears or arouse positive prejudices with the intent that invoked fear (based on fearmongering tactics) or trust will encourage those that read, see or hear propaganda to construct a negative opinion, in respect to the former, or a positive opinion, with respect to the latter, about a person, group, or set of beliefs or ideas that the propagandist would wish the recipients to believe. The method is intended to provoke conclusions and actions about a matter apart from an impartial examinations of the facts of the matter. When this tactic is used instead of an argument, name-calling is thus a substitute for rational, fact-based arguments against an idea or belief, based upon its own merits, and becomes an argumentum ad hominem."

go compare death rates between charlie and u.s. in the nam war and take into account the destroyed infrastructure that we left them with, i wouldn't exactly call that losing. and usa didn't lose iraq or afganistan, i don't understand how the hell you figure that. besides, wars are not fought for victory, they are fought for money, and when it comes to making money off of war, the USA is the undisputed champ

usa is only hated by trash like you, its ok though, employees will always talk trash about there bosses

you really want to know how succesful U.S. is? every nation in the world has a mcdonalds and america will never have to pay off the trillions in debt because the entire world relies on it.

Arguably yes. As the dominant faith of the western world it's been used as a reason for so much fucked up shit.

Also I find Christians to be some of the most outspoken and confrontational religious people despite a large percentage having very minor knowledge of the bible.

All of this, but we can't properly take care of our own citizenry. Countries with a 100th or less of our GDP have no problems setting up proper public systems of education and healthcare.

Is that why the USA has the highest national debt of any nation by a massive margin?

So...how do you propose we fix governmental issues...anarchy? Every politician ends up somewhat shady because third-party candidates never win. That's something else I would have set up. Presidential ballots and voting would work differently. It wouldn't be "vote for one person" it would be "rank people from favorite to least favorite". Points would be awarded inversely-proportionally to the position (i.e. 1st place would get 5 points, 5th place would get 1), and the candidate who got the most points from the popular vote would be the new president.

Let me put it this way;
You try to live by some rules that make both yours and the life of others, good and successful. So you believe for example, theft should be illegal because if you make it legal, it could also happen to you without any consequences. But, there are people who dont differentiate between something that should concern all of us, and their own interests. We can all agree that murder is wrong, but we wont agree about free healthcare for everyone, ("why should I pay for someone who smoked all their life" and similar) until it is you or your loved ones that is ill. And if people tend to change/abandon their principles so easily, why should we bother to take them seriously in the first place?

Can someone explain this "liberal" thang you're all talking about?
I always thought liberals are all about being open to new ideas and diversity. In some sort I always thought of america being very liberal (Liberty for all). Why do you hate them so much then?
And don't give me the good old retarded arguments like "they are stupid", "their opinion makes my butt hurt", "because it's popular nowadays" or any of that bullshit.

I just want real and sound arguments against it. Because from what I hear, you can't really call them liberal if they're not open to anything but their own shit. But america is sadly known for being rather uneducated. So using a word in a wrong concep is not really all that surprising.
>>
>>582781487
You're right. But not just any bloodshed.
It's going to take the bloodshed whereby some real Mayans have survived the fascist Mezzo-American state.
It's going to take the type of bloodshed whereby some Brazilians can still practice horticulture despite the investments of Clinton/Bush and local oligarchs.
It is the blood of survival. The struggle is to survive the bullshit cuntface uber-alphas.
Shedding blood to become the state is exactly the mythic phase that cannot become anything else but compromised liberalism.

A liberal is supposed to be someone who fights against tyranny, stoic society and cronyism. However, in this early 21st century the aisles have swapped meaning.

IMO everything a modern liberal stands for represents the destruction of liberty and freedom with only token self-destructive "freedoms" allowed.

If something makes one self-empowered and reduces government control, a modern liberal is against it. Modern liberals fear a free thinking and self-sustaining individual.

America is an obese system that relies on prison labour for manufacturing and who's companies have outsourced everything to the middle anf family. east. A large majority of the rich there claim massive welfare in America directly from taxes made up from working class people. America gives 3 billion in aid to Israel each year and a billion of that money is used by israel to influence elections.

America's national pass time is guilt over slavery, which they fought the war of independence to protect and an incredibly destructive war to further protect.
This gult has infected the world with anto white propaganda.
