Terry, long time no see, welcome back. Not shooting the messenger, he's right here probably more often than not. The quote explains patrons of the occupying statist theocracy that now infests this land.

    One thing I have to admit about us in Canada and Canadians in general; we take our freedom, our land, our resources for granted. We never had to fight a war for our freedom as you in the USA did. Without that sense of sacrifice that gives the freedom you have as something that was won - and will fight to maintain; because you honor those that made the sacrifice, it will be taken for granted and easily lost.

    Now I understand why Mike of Norwalk expresses such fury against me. He holds his "beliefs" with passion but apparently does not own them for he seems incapable of explaining them and thus he rails with fury out of fear that he might have to be disloyal to ideas he espouses but really does not understand.

    Waffler, you are hilarious! I guess you've got Mike on the ropes now. How wise you are to have seen that he really doesn't believe all this stuff, and that with a little more clear and reasonable logic from you he will finally succumb to your unquestionable wisdom. Don't give up, you can still save Mike from himself, all he needs is to know that you won't give up on him. He needs you, we ALL need you, please do not give up on us -- you see that we really don't believe what we say, we just need to know that everything is going to be OK. Thankfully we have you.

    Waffler, with no malice, I'm about to tell you something. What Mike, and Archer, and many of us have, is INGRAINED, and we CAN explain it well, it takes a lot of paper bro. It's in the heart and mind, We were raised in a time when we were taught the constitution, the REAL law of this land. Y'all had fights up there in Canada, for land, long ago. But yes, we are a bit different lot, our freedom is very precious to us, so much so, we will die for it. Do you think that's a good enough reason that we would get upset?? When we would die for a way of life we KNOW to be the best so far, in all of history. Bro, Mike UNDERSTANDS all too well, so your argument is baseless, cause so many of us understand exactly where he is coming from. Peace to y'all Canadians anyway, someday, we may ALL have to stand toe to toe, against something very big. Join us, in our fight to regain our most basic laws, which will lead to real freedom. Yes, there are many more people now, but that does not mean the constitution is irrelevant now, it means it is even more important. We are also TRYING to show you what the current admin is trying to do, and why we will not live that way. And YES, we honor those that made the sacrifices, I'm a nam vet, my father a Korean vet, my grandfather a WWII vet. We honor our dead warriors, and what they stood for, and that they did not die in vain. And yes, we have the capability to be the harshest warriors on the face of the planet, and yes, we are still human. Any government, that has enough power, to give you all you need, also has the power to take all you have. But you know all this, don't cha? Ya cant piss us off, lol, because most of us are so hard, hail bounces off. lol Semper Fi
