  •  I'm shocked that you lived in Europe (7+ / 0-)

    and still have such a hawkish, "American exceptionalism" focused view.  Did you leave Northern Europe at all?  Have you traveled to other places, or did you just stay on campus and the local pub?  The world is full of countries with just as may personalities and values.  

    With all due respect, you have every right to your opinions and to express them, but you are FAR from progressive.  The value of human life seems pretty low to you.  I'd suggest some real traveling, on your own dime this time, to some places that aren't in the Lonely Planet guide books.

      How exactly did i get here to begin with? lol.

      Do you even know how European campuses work? Rarely is there student housing on campus.

      Maybe you should do a little traveling yourself, eh?

      I'm not saying a diversity of ideas is unique to America, i'm saying that the competition of ideas is a historical tradition in our country.

      Your comments are all loaded with strange implications, but I respect your opposition.

      How I viewed things in the past and what I've done in the past doesn't define who I am today and how I look at things now.
