Since we support terrorists, do we hate ourselves for our freedoms too?

Since we support terrorists, do we hate ourselves for our freedoms too?
Edited on Wed Jul-27-05 09:27 PM by Wetzelbill
I'm pretty confused about all of this. I was just speaking out on my opinion on CAFTA a bit ago and all of a sudden I was enraged that I was even allowed to say such things.

I'm even pissed that I've shot a gun before.

When I wipe with the Bill Of Rights and have my daily flag burning, I have just been red-hot angry lately that I have the Constitutional right to do these things.

I mean, I'm a big fan of Al-Qaeda and all, don't get me wrong, but does my support have to be so strong that I loathe not only my country but even myself?

Admittedly, I regularly help terrorists, just on the fact alone that Ted Kennedy is one of my heroes, I'm helping terrorists, but I go out of my way to not support the troops, by wanting them to come home and other such things. When I woke up earlier today, the first thing I did was read the New York Times, and if that isn't aiding a few terrorists I don't know what is, but, immediately, I felt this tinge of hatred knowing that I even have the Freedom to read that liberal Commie rag.

I'm even watching Jim Lehrer on PBS right now. Helping terrorists again, but damned if I'm not pissed that I can actually do this.

Can somebody help me?

Will this cycle ever end?

You damn dirty apes! Oops sorry, I went too far. :sarcasm:

3. Good thing the War on Terror is officially Over
now we have the fight against extremism. Does that mean you still hate yourself for your freedoms?
