If you look at the governing principles, the founding documents, and the system of government, YES, we are still the example. But, no matter how good the system is, it will never work any better than those that administer it. If you look at those we have in charge, and those we have to select from... No, we're no better than anyone else. Those that wrote the documents, from which the system was born, are gone. No one remembers with what voice they spoke.

The topic is repression NOT Alex Jones - he is more accurate than the "MSM"!
what does liberalism have to do with this? both R and D are to blame!
Our Constitution lies in shambles and its self inflicted from within!

In 2012 not the 1790's America is dying and from internal wounds NOT external, just go thru all the OP/posts/articles/laws/bills ect. posted on CD and then think about where we came from and how this nation was designed.

America born in 1776 is flatline and CPR in progress in 2012..........

We never were. The US has been screwing people over for money and its own interests for a long time, but I think this a part of human nature.

Like Iran and Saudi, the US is full of religious wackos who claim to love freedom, but want to take rights away from others based on religion and who claim to 'support our troops' unless they run for office as a democrat or want to have a beer.

Let's see which country can I say that the leader sucks balls and not end up in a concentration camp?

I, Shiftymh of the city-data forums, do publicly declare that Barack Obama sucks balls.

There will be no knock on my door.

What a measuring stick they have for us.

Kind of like asking if Kim Jung Un is tall when compared to umpaloompas.

How about we compare ourselves to the freest nations in the world?

Ah Alex's business partners must have a lot of leftover Christmas merchandise they need to move. MRE's, water filters, radiation detectors, gold coins, silver bars and what not.

He's going to have to keep his core of tinfoilers nice and scared with stuff like this, HAARP, nuclear meltdowns in Nebraska and so forth in order to move all that product.
