Not the picture, I love JJ, but his/her comment.
User avatar #45 - reaganomix (02/10/2012) [-]
Now, I am even more confused. I think you looked into the comment more than you should have.

Look at the content, now look at the Rainbow Dash Picture.
Content refers to sword fighting, the picture is of Dashie with a sword.
Comment is about Rainbow Dash in a sword fight.

I don't believe it was something that would incite hatred, more of an addition to the content.

The government has nuclear weapons capable of obliterating entire cities with the touch of a button. If they become tyrannical, your pistol will be like bringing a knife to a gunfight.
User avatar #520 - reaganomix (02/10/2012) [-]
No government is going to be annihilating their own cities so they become unusable by anyone for the next few centuries.

Guns are the only thing the common man has and if out government ever tries to cease weapons then we know that the government has become tyrannical.

Gun control is just going to make the people weaker if something like this happens.
User avatar #521 - notabtard (02/10/2012) [-]
If you honestly think that you will, in the near future, need to use guns to fight off the government, then how is it unreasonable to think that they will use bombs on you?
#46 - lackofcareingerer (02/10/2012) [-]
no, the 2 amendment was for a mitlia. now there is no need for a miltia, as we have the strongest army in the world, and if we tried to fight them off, we would be destroyed.
User avatar #49 - reaganomix (02/10/2012) [-]
So we should just let a tyrannical government take us over?

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the ponies to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. --Passed by Congress

A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the ponies to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed --Ratified by the State.

So what you are suggesting is that we should just given into the orders of a tyrannical government when it is obvious the the will of the people does no match what the government wants?

Should we go back to 19th century Europe when governments were shutting down revolutions, even though they wanted a more liberal government?

Besides, there are other reasons to be able to have guns as well.

We are a capalist country so we have the right to elect and according to the PATRIOT ACT it has to be renew every 4-5 years so if it becomes a problem i'm sure we can elect our sentors or representive to cancel that out however this act so far has done more good than bad so if this does survive 50 years i suppose it is doing its job

Capitalism is an economic system. We are a republic.

Maybe in a perfect world, the common people will be able to get rid of things that they are unsatisfied with, but let's take a look at the most recent example. Barack Obama was a champion of civil liberties--he ran on this platform--and he went to Harvard to study constitutional law. The biggest slap in the face is when he continued the Patriot Act, something clearly in violation of the Constitution.

Also, a problem with what you said is that money plays a very big role in politics. Since large corporations and billionaires are shoveling money towards politicians, why would they listen to their constituency when they earn more money by listening to the few with the most money.

You also do not realize the complete apathy the average American has towards politics. People get upset about it now, but once Monday Night football comes on they forget about the problem. The problem does not go away, people are just distracted by something irrelevant when out civil liberties are being taken away. President Barack Obama has acted like Bush for the past 3 years, but now that it is an election year, he is trying to be more liberal to be reelected. People are so forgetful that they will forget the past three years and they will only pay attention to politics in an Election Year.

If we allow the government to start taking away some of out liberties, what will stop them from continuing the process? The governments job is to protect our inalienable rights of Life, Liberty, and Property. With the Patriot Act, the government can take away all of these. The President has the power to execute American Citizens WITHOUT due process (Completely going against the Bill of Rights)

The government does not have the right to intrude in the lives of the American People.

"We have lots of evidence now that when you put the foreign military presence in, it triggers suicide terrorism campaigns... and that when the foreign forces leave, it takes away almost 100 percent of the terrorist campaigns" --Robert Pape

What incentive is there to blow up a car in your neighborhood? There is none if we do not incite the people into doing so. The closest thing to a terrorist attack was the underwear bomber. Not only did it fail, but it took 9 years after 9/11 to even occur. The government is here for only one reason, to protect our liberties and inalienable human rights granted at birth. If we really don't want to be a victim of terrorist attacks, we need to look at the roots, not focus on the symptoms.

You shouldn't be worried about how the U.S. government can use the Patriot Act now, imagine what could happen 50 years from now. The government only remembers the laws enacted that are beneficial to them at that point in time.

The same thing happened with the Monroe Doctrine. 70 years after it's conception, we didn't want European influence in the Americas because we wanted to exploit those countries. So we pulled out the Monroe Doctrine.

There is a law that prevent the Army, Navy, Air Force from performing actions on U.S. soil, but there are still many instances in which this happened. The government is selective in what they choose to adhere to and a what they won't.

#20 - reaganomix (02/09/2012) [-]
So let's assume every American is a terrorist and just repel the 4th Amendment. Besides, we wouldn't have even been attacked if didn't fuck around in he Middle East.

Terrorism is determined by point of view. The U.S. has bombed many countries in retaliation, but innocent people think of U.S. actions as terrorism. The U.S. might call resisters of U.S. occupation as terrorist, while the resisters regard their own violence as patriotism.

We need to ask what drives anyone to terrorism. We need to look at the roots to understand their actions.

The rich pay a lower tax bracket but pay exponentially more.
The top 1% pays 40% of the total federal income taxes.
The top 10% pay 70%.

If they were to pay the same rate as the middle class they would make up close to 100% of the total taxes.
#129 - reaganomix has deleted their comment.
User avatar #125 - reaganomix (02/08/2012) [-]
That is not including loopholes.

Let's take for example Mitt Romney, he made 46 million dollars last year. However, he did not pay 40% in taxes, he payed 13-14% because he can work through loopholes found in the tax code. He has money stored in overseas banks, he claims all his income in capital gains. The rich may pay more taxes on paper, but they pay far less of their income when you take the loopholes into account. He payed 6 million dollars in taxes, but if 3,000 Americans made 46 million collectively, they would pay around 16 million.

Let's use another example GE(General Electric). They pay 0% taxes to Uncle Sam. Instead they spend their money on lobbyist and incentives towards the government so they do not have to pay any taxes.

'A company is paying politicians so they do not have to pay taxes'

I do not want to see the wealthiest pay 30%. I want everyone to pay a low percent like 10% or 15% while reducing government.

The rich should not be able to exploit loopholes, what good is money overseas doing to help our economy?

Oh so now it's not "herp-derp-richers" it's "herp-derp-lobbyists".
Lobbyists don't put a gun to anyone's head. Clinton signed it.
It might not have even been a bad thing if they hadn't also weakened the mortgage industry that the banks would invest in.

Less taxes means that companies can hire more workers, getting more taxes on more workers while increasing the overall wealth in the economy. It'd work.

But at what point do you stop? Eventually if we switch, we would need to change all the signs and such. There would never be a point in which we can switch off generations. It is taught in schools, and all Americans know both systems, we just don't use the metric system as often.

And yes, the government spending is an issue. Because yes, while we are a nation at war and in the middle of an economic crisis, it is a good idea to sit around and talk about whether or not pizza is a vegetable. Tax payer dollars sure are going towards a lot here..
