Its funny how you hear people go on about liberals & conservatives, republican& democrats, when runing the US has very little to do with politics...........

I don't think it's funny, I think it's f**king dumb. People are crazy, you have the far right claiming that America is on the teetering edge of Communism and then you have the far left claiming the Bush Administration executed 9/11 and that they're trying to secretly convert this country into a Fascism.

I don't think there's been a point in history where people have so vigorously avoided the act of agreeing to disagree.

Josh, ho'd you guess??? ;-)

Although my posts were not meant to be anti-american at all, just anti-current administration maybe...........

I'm waiting to see Darkslayers comments, we regularly discuss world affairs and US politics and conspiracy theory's via e-mail..................

lol
I didn't take it as anti-american. In fact, the running of the US shouldn't have much to do with politics, but unfortunately it does. And it isn't just republicans that cause it (like you suggest). In fact, the best recent administration for keeping the government away from too much politics was probably when Reagan was in office (a republican).

Well.

As not only a Christian and a teenager...


I disagree with this theory in general. Aren't the religious supposed to have morals? You know, respect your family, respect everyone? What happened to that? What point in time does religion have to become corrupt by greed and the "American Rights". Pffft.

Sometimes I wish I was treated like I wasn't some idiotic minor. Which, inturn, I don't act like. But thats simply respect. People will respect you if you are a good example in front of them. Sure, they stereotype at first... but someone who lives on stereotypes alone or doesn't know you long enough to see otherwise... who needs them and what signifigance do they have in your life?

I am a religious person. A Christian. I don't go to church and the nearest church isn't a 5 million dollar one. I would go to church but I don't have a ride and I don't have a job. Well, I work at my father's computer store but money has been tight lately so I don't get paid.


Well, I am glad that I was granted the ability to voice my opinion and not get punished for it. Now that, is the American way.

Obviously not understanding what I said...

lemme restate. The posters that said "its conservative" quoted the God references. Josh quoted obeying parents and then said something like "liberals dont believe in that? no wonder i'm conservative" Everyone should obey their parents and respect authority AS LONG AS THEY ARE RESPECTING YOU. If your parent said go kill your dog because hes barking and I'm tired of it, you'd say "okay" because you are obeying them. bull. yes, if they say clean your room, or you're not going out because i dont like where you are going or the kids you are hanging out with, fine. See the posters were only calling the God parts conservative because normally liberals would take into account those that dont believe in God and leave it out of the "bill of rights" completely. Maybe they should rename it to the Religious Teenage Bill of Rights instead of thinking that every teenager believes in god. Josh took the opportunity to quote a decent "law" and say oh liberals dont believe in that? please. Since you're 16 i'm sure you are starting to think for yourself, how about not harboring hatred for the helluvit? try tolerance.

First of all, I'm 17 (B-day was a couple weeks ago). Now that we have that settled..... ;)

I agree, there are times that you shouldn't do what is instructed to you to do. God gave you a conscience for a reason. And ultimately, if you were told to do something by an authority, and you do it even though it's wrong, the authority that told you to do it will be held as much, if not more, accountable to God as you are.

Assuming you believe in God... what about the more pressing matters, such as how accountable you'd be held to... say... law enforcement or some similar worldly entity?

Yes, we need to follow them, too.
Or is that not what you're asking?

Well, my point is that authority should not be blindly followed. Nuremburg comes to mind.

>> Re: Teenage Bill of Rights!?!?! WTF!!!
Exactly. That's why we have a conscience. For example, I'm not going to tell people that they should follow what Saddam Hussein said when he was in Iraq. But, being a leader, he had a huge responsibility. Because, if people did follow what he ordered, and did something wrong, he would be held accountable.

Pickle, most of the people tried and convicted in Nurembourg were not just 'blindly' folowing orders, but actually believed in Hitler and what they were doing, strange as it may seem, but they shared his belief, not blindly followed it.

And for the few who did not believe in what they were doing, they were held under duress, I mean, what are you gonna do, follow orders or be shot?

Yeah, I understand that, but it was at Nuremburg where the concept of innocence via "I was just following orders" was deemed unacceptable, especially in terms of human rights.
