Note:
I thought I fixed the typos, but alas, some evaded my eyes!
I'm not coming from self righteousness, these are my heart felts thoughts, knowledge, and beliefs.
Approach this post with thought, not anger, for this is to provoke deep thinking, not hateful jabbing.

Thank You!

"Why does American Government have no funds for our countries medical needs, homeless, hungry, and jobless?"

Actually, what I ask is:

Q: "Why do the American people have no funds to spare to give to charities (religious and otherwise) for our countries' medical needs, homeless, hungry, and jobless?"

A: "Because of people who inexplicably think that Government can do a better job, enabling them to confiscate those funds and put them in the hands of a mindless and corrupt bureaucracy instead."

I stopped reading after that.

Stuart Mackenzie: Well, it's a well known fact, Sunny Jim, that there's a secret society of the five most wealthiest people in the world, known as The Pentavaret, who run everything in the world, including the newspapers, and meet triannually at a secret country mansion in Colorado, known as The Meadows.

Charlie Mackenzie: So who's in this Pentaveret?

Stuart Mackenzie: That would be the Queen, the Vatican, the Rothschilds, The Gettys and the Colonel Sanders before he went teats up. Oh, I hated the Colonel with his wee beady eyes, and that smug look on his face -- Oh, you're going to buy my chicken! Ohh!

Charlie Mackenzie: Dad, How can you hate "the Colonel"?

Stuart Mackenzie: Because he puts an addictive chemical in his chicken that makes you crave it fortnightly, smartarse!

It does sound hateful,but the way I see it, is not so much just hateful coming from me, but this is my knowledge.

It sounds hateful, but these are things I believe to be true!

I didn't want to start arguments, I was hoping that Freepers would post their knowledge, some historical facts, and their own understanding of how they see democracy, and the way the world is plummeting today?

As a newly convicted voter, I'll say, I'm wanting to hear peoples voices on these matters. Cause I always believed that people learn more from other people, than any other way available. At least for me this is true.

Come And Play?

Oh, let's just play, "Stop The Tape!" here...

We are still at cold war with Europe, and it's godless National Seat, the Vatican!

I should really have stopped right here, but let's advance to Round Two, shall we?

Oh, but, that pricks some folks fingers, that's a little to cut throat for this conservative site!

Oh no, my FEC neighbor, we can get FAR more cuthroat than your pathos, but let's continue...

Since when has the Vatican ever been conservative! He, doesn't follow his own doctrine! He is not humble, He stands over his dominion of followers as a God! He, wears a Hebrews religious cap, and turns around and also wears a kings crown. Unfortunately, He represents before Heaven, Hell, and Purgatory millions of true to heart, Christians. As if he were their Christ! But is,the Vatican, an ambassador of Rome, a Christian man? A God? The Christ? Is he Theos, Jesuscristo? No, My friends, He is not!

Ooo-kay, so now we have the Catholics, the Zionist Conspiracy, "Pope is the AntiChrist", all rolled into one neat little screed.

I no more tolerate King-James-Is-My-Cudgel Xians, than your self-righteous cousins, the Muslims. Begone, Troll!!

I was convicted of not knowing enough to honestly, and thoughtfully vote. Like I've learned some stuff from political exhorters, and some news. For the most part I don't watch the news, I don't know how much can be believed, plus, I don't trust that the President really ever is to be taken for face value.

I'm nearly 27, and have never taken an interest in getting to know my American rights. Last year I started paying attention to the 2nd Amendment rights, and now, I'm ready to learn more.

To Old Sarge; I've just got alot of beliefs, knowledge, and information all balled up in me, and I've been wanting to share what I know, and put "feelers" out, so as to meet others who know more.
you may consider me a troll, but, I honestly am trying to intice people to share with me through this thread, what there is to know. All the deep dark, dirty secrets, forgotten facts, and unfamous historical events that need to be considered in observing what goes on today.

Being honest about what I know and feel doesn't make me anymore of a troll than it does you, Old Sarge.
You may find out in the future the information I'm willing to got out on a ledge with, you'll find faultless and you may even know some of this stuff already.

I may not always be right, but I'm willing to open myself up, and act like "butter", and get on a roll!

But, I guess you've never opened up yourself fully, being a military man and all. You probably have forgotten what it's like to be humiliated on way into the ranks of others who are more experienced and knowledgeable?

Tamsey, what are you referring to as in "W"? Who did I vote for in 2000, the commonly known Republicans. About 85% of me totally is in alignment with Conservative Republican, however, I also support Constitution Party, and anything traditionally, and foundationally American. In the up coming polls, I'm scared to death to see the dems win this one.
I know without a shadow of a doubt, that if Kerry gets in, he won't last. The dems are using him as a decoy, Hillary has the Democrats so tightly around her finger, and up her butt, they'll find a way to knock out Kerry, so she can slither upto the House! (I hate her!, if you know what I mean?).

There I think I responded to everyone.
What did someone mean by "mob"?? LOL

Also, I don't believe in a Zionist Conspiracy, nor do I believe that the Pope is Anti-Christ as in the future Anti-Christ. But the fact that he acts like some mythological god, means he's blasphemous against the very God who create his little powdered bottom, and robed flesh.

Humor me, what does FEC mean?

Okay, Okay! I plead guilty for being a little abnormal by using the word "ye".
And I admit to not always being grammatically correct. I am capable if I take the time, to be otherwise. Yet sometimes, my comprehnsion of my own thoughts to be able to put them in words and sentences, I lack strength in.
I am easily distracted when I'm writing from my thoughts, and have never been any thing but a C+ student in english.. all 12 years of high school!
