Here is :Y:our America by NatureofMind Here is :Y:our America by NatureofMind
A climate of inequality and violence. A vampire nation, parasitic culture. Toxic mind space. Wake up
This is in no way saying that I think there will be another civil war, or slavery will come back. <
This is in no way unfair or untrue
This is in no way a pro bush statement

Um, yeah. Red States vote Republican, Blue States go democrat. That's the basic flow for presidents for... well, ever almost really. Red States were mostly in the South, and the South was where there was slavery.

Yes, you have fact. The South had slaves. The South is Red. The South is for the most part, "generally republican" (althought it was democrat during the Civil War times). But is this relevent to presidential elections how? Not only that, but red was originally the color of the DEMOCRATIC party, with blue for Republicans, and the Republican party was FOUNDED by modernizers and anti-slavery activists. These two era of maps are TOTALLY irrelevent to each other and every regard beyond colors on it.

You, good sir, apparently have no grasp on what America "is". You say that you made "red states" look "good" as if it was a BAD thing, ignorantly placing them in the "badguy" position. You say America is nothing but a vampire nation and a parasitic culture (curious as to how, vampires feed off the lifeblood of others and parasites leech off of a full sized organism, and America does not really do either), and that its people need to wake up.

Well here's news for ya, pal. YOU need to wake up.

There are no good guys and bad guys. There's human nature, fickle and prone to doing whatever the hell it damn well pleases. American is not a bad country. Nor is it a good nation. It is a nation where it allows its people to demonstrate freedom, on all sides. We have the FREEEDOM to hate. To be violent. To challenge the government and make little posters like you have here. Governments are not SUPPOSED to tell people what the hell to do. They are not meant to be morale. They are not meant to tell you what is right and what is wrong.

The people do need to wake up. They need to realize that people are people, and shit like political affiliation or the government doesn't make anything inherently evil or good. They are fickle and will do as they please, however they please.

If you don't like how something is going, then stop bitching and pointing fingers, get some blasted FACTS, get some EVIDENCE, get some SUPPORT, and go DO something about it. A picture is worth a thousand words, but ACTIONS speak LOUDER than words.

And personally? A new Civil War may not be a bad idea. The people have grown weak in what they really beleive in. A fresh revolution COULD be the best thing that ever happened to them. Or it could destroy them. But you never know, knowing people and all.

Yeah...I still don't see what you're getting at. For starters, the "pre-civil war" map is a bit skewed. The orange-ish colored territories should closer resemble a blue color, as they were Union territories during the war. West Virginia is not even noted as an individual state on the map, which is funny seeing as how it seceded from Virginia after Virginia seceded from the Union. Kentucky was completely neutral and Missouri was certainly a teetering state as well, so why aren't they differentiated?

Ever seen the 1980 presidential election map? Precisely what comparison would you make of that? And go figure, the first black senator was born in North Carolina and elected from Mississippi, deep in the south.

The pattern is simple irony. The colors were poorly chosen if at any length they were meant to coincide with political leanings of the given areas. This is what you call spin. Now, if the map was recolored as I mentioned, you would still have a case for the irony of the pattern, but nothing more.

By the way, precisely what "war crimes" has our president committed?

first of all that was 3 years ago. Second of all it is based on reality. those are real statistics. The logic is "hey, do you notice a similarity?" I'm comparing generalized beliefs by state[which are VERY generalized] from the past on one issue to those of a current issue. And the similarity's is obvious. I am not comparing voting for bush to slavery, I'm comparing a climate of inequality and violence [lack of human rights and slavery] to another climate of inequality and violence [capitalism and a International War Crime committing president].

I am in active and conscious pursuit of eliminating all seeds of hate in me.
My eyes are taking in all around me, peripherally and my mind is unfolding.
I am resiting, unlearning, and defying.
Much Love.

An interesting submission indeed. I wonder how the meaning of this submission would change if you factored in the fact that it was the Republican Party who first fought for the freedom of slavery, hence the very Democratic old South. I think the concept is a great idea and very original, unfortunately your history is a bit out of whack.

that's not completely true you can't base that election and compare it with the ones from before. america has changed in little ways a hundred years is not enough to erase all the pain my country has been built upon. we were a country that was settled by prisoners and aristocrats. to say that we have not changed is not true. america has been and always will be a land of oppurtunity. it's hard being here. but changes take time. i admit we are a big threat to many nations but, we also help others. you may not see it that way. but this conservative nation does care. even if we are the center of so much pain. i just wish that people would give america a chance and understand our nation before discriminating against us. it's hard to explain but we are not a land without hope and dreams.

both maps are facts, meaning they are true. I understand that america has changed greatly, america has changed hand in hand with nations around the world, and especially with my nation, Canada. And more often than not, america was the nation that lead the changes.

america is a land of opportunity, and I know that america helps others, its just your terrible government that gives the people such a bad name.

and I didnt discriminate against anything or anyone.

thank you for your comments :hug:

back then they had flip flopped agenda's, the democrat party was the party of succession and the republicans were the liberal minded ones, after all Lincoln freed the slaves. it wasn't until the 1900's there was a repolarization when the democrats fused with the populist party and adopted the progressive ideals they have today.
