I need to add something to my post.

This country also became great through the grace and blessings of God. God has blessed this land exceedingly. When our nation turns away from God, His blessings will be withdrawn. We are moving in that direction.

More government jobs have been created than private. By far. Do you really believe that with the TRUE unemployment rate we have that there are more jobs "created"?

I watched a graph of the DOW while Barry's grandma Yellen was speaking yesterday... the more she talked, the more it dropped.

The American Indian would likely disagree about God's blessing this land, unless their dying from European diseases, starving, having their lands taken and being shot are considered "blessings".

Hard work certainly makes a great sound bite to argue greatness. It probably helped us much more to have abundant resources, a democratic single central government to drive things like our transportation network and a standard currency, and major oceans to protect us from foreign invaders.

Russia for example has all of that. But the government has held them back for decades. See how that works?

Huh. I don't see it.

Y'all were saying that Putin is a better leader than our own in another thread.

Russia never had any natural resources???? Are you out of your mind? They could have taken the industrial revolution kind of turn. But hey, for the past 100 years or so they had strangling control by the government. You know, the gov controlled everything from agriculture to industry to entertainment. Ours didn't and we prospered. How'd that work out for them? How anybody thinks that a few people are smarter and should control millions of other people is well... retarted.

And Putin so far has made your leader look like the complete incompetent jack wagon he is. He gains in respect and we drop continually. Our Allies have made it pretty clear we're not as tight as we once were. Your leader was warned, and now we have problems all over.

BTW, Fortune Magazine came out with it's "Top World Leaders" today. No American elected officials are on it. Imagine that.

The Indians killed the white man and the white man killed the Indians, and the Indians killed each other. Many white settlers died from Indian disease, as you have to realize biology works both ways. A virus does not discriminate between an Indian and a white man. History is more complex than the liberal party line. Tell me how government liberalism has worked out for the Indians?

The white man would have avoided Indian diseases completely if he had not invaded the Indian's lands. And, let's not kid ourselves. Gunpowder, smallpox and alcohol proved to be far superior to arrows for sheer carnage inflicted.

God's "blessings" for one person always seem to come at another person's expense.

Why is that?

Everything in this life has costs and benefits. It is absurd to think we can do something about what happened many, many years ago. It is also absurd to think that only the White man is with sin and every other culture is pristine. I am curious, Creek, to make up for the sins of the past, would you be willing to give up the land that you have and give it to an Indian family?

Correct and every race has been in slavery at some point and time, as well.
