    Controversial, yes. True, well I think so.

    Where are the real Americans?
    Michael Cook

    One wonders where to start with all the problems that face America and our freedoms today. It seems we must fight each day just to keep the status quo with our freedoms. Right now we are involved in a war that could be our downfall if we can’t get the liberal peaceniks off their stupid cut and run ideas.
    I don’t like war any more than the next person; however we must take the gloves off and win this one at all costs. The stupid idea of tying the hands of law enforcement, not allowing them to do profiling is one area that must change right now. This war is about race and religion and we must fight it that way. That doesn’t make me or anyone else a racist. Facts are facts. The Muslim people involved in this war want to kill us all, that’s the bottom line. They have, as others have said, already taken France and Spain, and they will continue to take unless we stand up to them now. This nation is the single largest obstacle in their way and getting us would be the end for the world and they know that. Their efforts will descend on us like flies if we don’t stop them now wherever they are in the world.

    The fact that they are getting aid from Korea, China, and some Middle Eastern countries means that we are facing as many enemies as during World War II. If that isn’t bad enough we are also being invaded from our neighbors to the south. They have openly stated they want to take back many states in America they feel belongs to them. They are doing it in a very easy way and our government is helping them to do it. I believe they may be able to do just that without firing a shot if it continues.

    The worst of all our enemies live right here among us. That is the liberal whiny environmental idiots who are turning us into a poor third world country like many others in the world. They don’t want us to be at war, they don’t want us using our natural resources, and they want us to stop hunting and fishing and possessing firearms so that they can set us up for the big takeover. They want to turn us into sheep living in mud huts and in poverty.

    It’s time right now for all of us true Americans to stand up with one voice and turn it around. We must support our young men and women who are fighting the enemy on foreign shores and show the liberals that they are a minority and that we still have the power. This can be done through support of agencies on our side of the issue, and through voting in the right people in government. We can also do our duty by showing up to demonstrate in large numbers when needed. It’s our duty also to make sure we own and can safely use a firearm. This is what makes this nation strong. If you don’t own a personnel protection devise such as a good firearm and abundant ammo to go with it, it is your duty as an American to go and get one. After all you and I are the last line of defense and the obstacle that will save this great nation of ours.

    We were once proud and strong Americans who didn’t care about what our neighbors thought of us. We were not afraid to tell it like it is. We would stand tall and take on anyone who would threaten our freedoms and way of life. Many of us like me and others fought in wars to preserve that way of life and freedoms. We were proud to serve and will do it again if need be. We are the majority in this nation and we will stand tall once more. I am very proud of each and every one of those young Americans who volunteer to serve this nation and fight for us. We will never be able to thank them enough. They deserve our vote throwing those out of Congress who bad mouth them and give aid to our enemies. That’s right I’m talking about Kerry, Schumer, Kennedy, and others of that ilk who don’t deserve our vote for their actions and vocal diatribe in front of the press.

    Be strong and stand tall America, our country needs us now more than ever.

    God bless America and God bless our troops still in harm's way.

    I am a real American.

    However the other is forgetting to look at the rights that the Republicans/Conservatives are trying to destroy.

    The detainee abuse at GITMO. The whole Padilla fiasco. The Patriot Act.

    I don't think he was talking specifically about a political party, he kept mentioning liberals, not democrats, although more often than not they are one in the same. I don't care what party someone is in. If they are undermining our troops and trying to chisel away at the core that is the USA, throw them out on their sorry posterior and let them know they are not welcome here anymore.

    I got me a nice certificate that says I'm an American. I have also taken an oath to that effect.

    However, I think that profiling by race is dumb, dangerous and irresponsible. I doubt you would be able to tell a Jew from an Arab from an Italian at a glance. At the same time, I don't think you could tell a Croatian Muslim from a Serbian Christian. Profiling by religion is impossible, since religion is not obvious at all, and a Coptic Christian looks just like another Lebanese. Add to this Muslim converts who range from lily-white Johnny Walker Lindh to visibly Hispanic Jose Padilla to NOI Black Americans. Where does that get you?

    That kind of profiling is what will make you complacent. It is what will make you miss 20 pounds of explosives that will bring down an airliner because it was hidden in a battery casing of a little old lady's wheelchair and a little old lady is none of those things you'd be looking for.

    The only thing you can profile by is behavior. That takes training, experience and judgement. There is a sore lack of those in law enforcement. Fix that, and you'd be golden. Profiling by looks is a lot like zero-tolerance - a shield for the incompetent.

    Real Americans use their brains.

    I'm a real American, but I disagree with 90% of that passage.

    I am American who completely disagrees with the points made in the article written by the Chicken Hawk Mr. Cook. I am against the President, the "War", Patriot act, gitmo and any other hair brained ideas boiled up by the so called Neo Cons. Yet I am a proud American. Sounds like Mr Cook watches too much Fox (Neo) News.

    "This war is about race and religion and we must fight it that way."

    Right. Because it's those Muslim Arabs that are after us.

    "The fact that they are getting aid from Korea, China, and some Middle Eastern countries means that we are facing as many enemies as during World War II."

    Wait. How many races and religeons is this war about, again? All those Korean Muslim and Chinese Arabs are out to get us, too?

    This fellow is just whining. He's not even consistent.

    Sounds like somebody is off his medications again. :uhoh:

    The ONLY point I agree with this person on is how to wage this war.

    Of course, if we as a nation did THAT, certain "Holy Sites" in a particular sand rich nation would be smooth, green and glow in the dark.

    I doubt if even that would change any of the liberal and eviromentalist minds.

    So what do you suggest? Should we detain everyone who doesnt believe in your religion? Should we subject those with olive skin tones to harrassment by LEOs?

    Ill comment on what I consider an American and on liberalism.

    I use to listen to talk radio,for the most part Rush Limbaugh.I dont listen anymore but a comment he use to say was "oridinary people doing extraordinary things" and I think thats a great definition for America,be it answering a call of duty,being creative or using their minds,or with all the different social,economic,religious and political backgrounds coming together as one nation (mostly)when the shtf,like WW1,WW2 or 9-11.Unfortunately politicians sometimes make it difficult for ordinary people to be extraordinary.

    Liberalism,in its current form, I view them as the socialist,"I feel guilty to have it so good",champions of big ,central government,Christian attacking(but not other religion),patriotic attacking(pledge of allegiance) people they are.Alot of them say how " civilized" europe is,I dont care how well "civilized" europe is,because with all due respect to international members here,and there are good people around the world,I view the principles of this Republic's liberty as more civilized.

    Bush,I've already stated in a thread Im not completely happy with some of the stuff he has done,or failed to do.Im glad we get a chance to clean house every 4 or 8 years.

    Its the everyday people that make this country great,the right as a individual.

    hmm,think I'll have a hotdog and a coca-cola now

    If you were hunting a bear you would'nt follow a deer's tracks...
    American citizens should be given due process with their constititional rights,regardless of race.No unnecessary harassment or such but...
    The terrorists most actively threatening this country follow Islam.I dont see it as profiling to concentrate scrutiny on Muslims or places of worship as long as its within legal guidelines.Problem is too many scream "profiling" to inhibit investigating in this political correct era.
    regarding a Christian,or someone like Timothy Mcvey doing a act of terrorism.Some looney like that goes off a chain and the public specially the media seem to have no problem profiling,which they would include every "gun nut" like all of us here as part of "the problem"
