Can you provide links to back

Can you provide links to back up these claims, or do I have to google each one individually?

How badly do you want to know for yourself?

I don't always Google, but when I do...

Never trust....

Bump

Be careful...don't forget that...

the "Parties" have turned 180* since 1960 or-so. Republicans were voted in to stop the wars started by Dems...now it's the opposite. So, tell me again how the "Parties" are different?
All the stuff done to the colored folks in this article was perpetrated by GOVERNMENT, not a singular "party". Know your enemy.

Flase

The Nazi's tried to blame the government at the Nuremberg trials.
You can't seeing the government is just a tool.

I do agree with the rest of your statement though.

Ron brought the Liberty movement together, Rand is expanding the crap out of it! :)

You are wrong. The Holocaust

You are wrong. The Holocaust would never have been possible without the full support of government. As always its the government at fault for ANY significant genocide in human history. The only cases of genocide on the individual level are serial killers and even the worst known serial killers have killed fewer than one hundred people. Can you say the same of even the smallest government?

Seriously

The government does not exist without people. It is a tool. You cannot blame guns for killing people, and you cannot blame government with the exclusion of the people to be the reason behind atrocities. To be straight, the government is a tool the enabled people to carry those crimes out.

Nice

compilation, OP. I bookmarked this thread and shared it on Twitter. It's time to break the fallacy that the Repubs are for the rich and the Dems are for the little guy, eh?

Wicked93gs, it's said that the USA's first serial killer, H.H. Holmes, killed upwards of 200 people. Many have never heard of him, and some think he was also Jack the Ripper. He killed these people during the 1893 World's Fair set in Chicago...

BAN ELECTRONIC VOTING!!

Government

also = the people in government. People, ill-will and the tool's to facilitate it. You guys are splitting hairs.

The big problems start

when people put their political parties ahead of the people they represent and the government that supposedly represents the people. But the root problem is always 'The People', whether we like it or not. We have 330 million legal people in this nation, and we are 'enslaved' by less than 600 in D.C. The will of the people is very weak.

Double Ditto on this comment
