possibilities of war

2003-02-07 19:35:55+00 by Dan Lyke 2 comments

Despite my hippy ways, I understand the necessity of war. And we in the United States currently have a problem. We have a region dominated by religious fundamentalists. In that region, we have a state that won't tolerate alternate views, and whose representatives defend imprisoning members of an ethnic group "for their own protection".

We're left with no option. We must bomb North Carolina.

I got to thinking about this after IsThatLegal pointed out Howard Coble (R-NC)'s bigotry: Lincoln pushed the War Between The States[Wiki] to keep foreign influences out of the South. As a part of this nation they were less of a threat than if we shut them out and made them independent. But in exchange for this peace we allow them to impose their sick morality on more freedom loving states. When does it stop? If we're going to go into Iraq in the name of freedom and erasing fear and feelings of terror, why do we still allow these states of the "United States" to impose their rulers on us? How many more "Jesse Helms"es and "Howard Coble"s and "Sue Myrick"s do we have to tolerate before we realize that peace isn't worth this crap?

Maybe it's time to use force to install freedom loving governments in these places until the citizens of such states learn to not impose their ways on their neighbors.
