I cannot say how many times how I love this image! It's beyond spectacular! I'm an American Revolution reenactor and just adore this setting. All I can say is - HUZZAH!!
Any hope of a high resolution version of this making its way onto devart? I'd love to see it in higher detail.
Our government was designed to take into account the fact that ALL governments at SOME POINT become tyrannical.
To ensure this does not happen, the SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND, (U.S. Constitution) afforded us the right to "Keep and bear arms".
They also afforded us the right to "Form militias".
Militias are comprised of regular American Citizens, their solemn purpose is to DEFEND THIS COUNTRY FROM THE GOVERNMENT.
In these militias they USE their OWN weapons, armor, uniforms, and have their own commanders that answer to no one, and the constitution is their rule book. Without the right to bear and keep arms this would not be possible.
These soldiers have, tanks, helicopters and various aircraft, machine guns, and even artillery and they are allowed to practice, train and associate under our constitution, they are the only thing that can defend us in the event of a government that oppresses us to an extreme extent. Given your current situation that would certify "civil war" but in my country it is a common right, like the right to breathe air and is not considered to be malign. The bloodiest war we have EVER fought, was a war against our self, it was the American Civil War, and more soldiers were killed than any other war we ever fought in. It was, however, one of the most important wars we've ever fought, and without the Union victory we would be two countries right now. If you are opposed to Capitalism, then what are you a proponent of? Socialism? Socialism seems good, and to my dismay the American people are slowly moving towards it. But I am intensely antithetic towards this form of Government. There is little incentive for competition, to do a good job. This is evident in our government today, government employees are slow, and lazy. U.S. Mail Vs. UPS. There is absolutely no comparison to the quality of work produced by the corporate organization. Capitalism utilizes primal human instincts of greed, opulence, and affluence to motivate workers. Relinquishing the hospitals to government control, pay, and otherwise allocation of funds towards these organizations would result in poor service, long waiting times, and as a result catastrophic medical fuck ups on a more frequent basis. But at least it's cheap!!
The only logical solution to this problem is not socialism, however it is quite the opposite.
The compelling factor as to the PRICE of medical service is the direct result of the "legal" issues involved in clinical operations and treatment of illnesses. If the doctors fuck up they can be sued boundlessly into a pit of debt of which is comparable to the commerce of a small city in a given month. There are many clinics that charge 20 dollars for visits, treatments and consultations. It is our government that is responsible for this preposterously expensive medical treatment services, by the act of over encumbering legislation. Is Michael Moore a foreigner? No, why would he know something that we don't? I am well aware of the misdoings of my country, I am well acquainted with these conspiracy movies, I have watched an innumerable amount of them, as they are indeed fascinating. We are all given access to the same information, Michael Moore is no exception. In his documentaries he epitomizes only the most severe intermittent cases. These things do occur, doctors are people with circumstances of their own. To base such prejudices on these allegations and cases of rarity is absurd. Wayward to your self promulgation, you manifest the peremptory characteristics of those delinquents who are opposed to anything that is considered normal, contrarily they unilaterally aggregate themselves to procure and disseminate what they consider to be nefarious. Group think is unavoidable. And you seem contented with your inexpiable hatred for us.
Firstly, I would not eliminate the possibility that my government would "orchestrate an attack on itself as a ruse for war", since this has been done in the past with other nations. However I would not like to believe it to be true. As for our reasons for being in Iraq and Afghanistan, it is not about oil, it is more about big business which is not any less unscrupulous. Afghanistan has relatively little oil in the first place, our reasons for being there are primarily political. Europe has had many school shootings, just recently there was a shooting in Finland, and a shooting in Germany a combined deathtoll of roughly 22. The Europeans must also be evil, corrupted and horrible people because of this. This very fact illustrates how inhuman these Europeans are, and therefore I must hate them. <--- just to show you what you look like. Having a rifle (or other weapons) does not constitute a horrible or evil person, nor will most people ever use them against a human in their life time. I have been a hunter since my young years and I enjoy recreational shooting, and marksmanship. I only intend to use them against animals, and to eat the animals that I do kill. However if the need may arise I can DEFEND myself with my weapons. When I "refer" to liberty and weapons, I mean my government lets me have them unprohibited (in most cases). Rules apply to purchasing and owning a fire arm though. These rules consist of the following: You must not be a habitual drinker or documented alcoholic, you cannot have been diagnosed with a mental illness, and you cannot have been convicted of a felony. These are good rules. But criminals will get guns illegally anyway. Taking the guns away would only hinder the honest people, the people who don't intend on killing people. And I must also say that 90% of the guns I own are not designed for "killing another person", they are hunting rifles, not assault rifles. If our government does at some point become tyrannical, we will have weapons available to overthrow it, and restore it back to its previous state, this is something good about our gun ownership laws as they allow us to own fully automatic weapons, and weapons that are higher grade than the weapons our army uses. I myself own a lot of military-grade equipment. Just to talk about the medical system for a bit here, you seem to think it's as if we're heartless cold people (like what Hitler would depict the Jews as, I think you're brainwashed by some Hitler like figure to believe we're some monstrous kind of dehumanized vicious killers). To point out how wrong you are about this misconception you have about "LETTING PEOPLE DIE IN FRONT OF YOU BECAUSE THEY CAN'T PAY" for example, we have some 20 million (million, that is 1 million, multiplied by 20, that's a lot) illegal immigrants in our country. These people come to our country and have sex, so their children will be born in the USA, and their children will become naturalized American Citizens that way. Our doctors deliver these babies, and never get reimbursed. They HAVE to save you, they HAVE to operate on you if you are dying or in critical condition, they will not say "OH CAN HE PAY UP?" and just leave you to die on the side of the road, I don't get where the fuck you learned this from. Now if you are in critical condition, they will operate on you, and if you survive you MUST pay them, if you can't you will get sued, and possibly have a criminal record or something. But most people have insurance and insurance will cover most of the costs of the operations. I find your harsh opinions based on the words of ignorant assholes to be "disgusting".
