"If us communists/anarchists/socialists don't organize in solidarity, the reactionary fascist factions of this country WILL take power, because frankly, capitalism will always take this route when it is threatened, since it plays on the most reactionary aspects of human beings, "morality," jealousy, envy, shame, and greed."

.. from an anonymous poster yet. If you're so hot on your "solidarity" - why not post some contact info?

In my opinion - as small as it is - while the United States is far from perfect, it is the one that seems to be working the best out there. I don't agree with everything our country has done, but at the same time, I'm proud to live here, proud to be an American, and proud to be free.

I don't need anyone preaching to me what my morals should be, though, and that's what got me about this post.

"..the moral and economic core of this country is about to crash and burn."

Who are you to tell me what morals I should adhere to? Who is ANYONE to tell me what morals I should adhere to, should teach my children, and should anyone else teach thiers?

If anything - the dictation of morals to the American public by lame-ass well-meaning polititians trying to get votes and ensure thier job security is what's going to cause problems for the United States.

"...US is a terrorist state and has commited countless atrocities in the name of 'democracy and freedom' just proves that the world's only super power is in total decline as well as the 'free market capitalism' that it pretends to enforce."

I take a lot of issues with this one. First of all - the US isn't a terrorist state. Yes, some of the tactics are heavy handed, but at the same time - so are some of them that have been performed against us. Anyone remember the USS Liberty? 1967 Iran severly damaged the USS Liberty, killing dozens of crewmen, and both the United States and Iran covered it up - and are still doing so. Would a "terrorist nation" let something like that go?

How much should we take from other countries before we retaliate? And why should we take it? Take Sept 11th as an example. Thousands of American citizens died - civilians - and people like this gentlemen are calling the US a terrorist nation because we retaliated. I think we did a good job of retaliation, minus the flub ups. I mean, hell, we could have turned Afganistan into a glass parking lot if we really wanted to.

I guess my bottom line is that before you start spouting off anti-American sentiment like that, stop and think about it. America is still standing strong, even with her problems. Communist, fascist, and socialist states have all fallen apart, even the might of the USSR has come apart. But the US is still standing strong despite her problems. (I won't even mention anarchists, here, because they have no orginization - it's part of thier nature)

So - to sum it up - sit down, shut up, and think before you post about things. And if it's something you truly believe in, don't hide behind an anonymous post. Stand up and be recognized.
