The only times I've ever shot at someone was when I was working for the Fed which was years ago, now I just want everyone to leave me the hell alone.

[quote=Colorado Rambler;29407829]And speaking of literacy, our great Southern writers such as Thomas Wolf, William Faulkner, F. Scott Fitzgerald, etc. are read everywhere else in the Country except in the South, where intelligence and education is regarded with suspicion.

This is the most ridiculous screed ever!! Intelligence and education regarded with suspicion? Such a blatant lie.

Come on down, Colorado, and be taught some manners.

Brilliant!

I am not sure anymore since I visited the thread "how many guns should a 5 year old have".

What? Does Louis Theroux ever espouse anti-capitalistic rhetoric? If so, I've certainly missed that... I'm quite aware that Louis is a capitalist. Not sure what this has to do with anything. A lot of survivalists are paranoid people who wish to confirm their bias. If I'm not mistaken, there have been several incidents with these people who have started shootouts over routine things. You obviously have no seen the documentary, as Louis portrays the survivalists in a rather positive light and displays several who are not anti-government and befriends one of them who he keeps in touch with.

Don't dodge my question. Why must I leave? Why can't both of us live in the same country as we each see fit? Why does it have to be your way or the highway? I'm not forcing, nor am I asking you to live 'my way'. I just want to be free to live my way and be let alone. So again I ask, why do you hate freedom, comrade?

LOL, all the anti gun *******s are voting Yes to wanting a shoot out with guns they don't have, and would likely have no idea which end to point at the target anyhow.

You are free to live your life the way you want to, you just have to pay taxes to enjoy that freedom. And to answer you question, I don't hate freedom. I enjoy the freedom to live anywhere I want in this country and the freedom to choose what I want to do in life.
