But so what, right? Both sides do it, and it's really the corporations and global elite who control both parties, and everything in this world.
To wit: Despite attempts to create alternate realities (white Christian America defended with guns against the scary foreign hordes come to take all your stuff), there is such a thing as a more objective reality. One that can be agreed upon by a majority of folks. Here's the facts:
1. America was not founded as a Christian nation, though indeed many of the founding dudes were Christians, or - GASP! - Theists.
2. While America was very English/Scottish for the first 100 years or so, it quickly assimilated many immigrant populations such that even the Irish were welcomed to the cool kid's table.
3. Guns can be used for needed work, and sport. Owning an arsenal is not needed, and the possession of one marks the person as a lunatic.
So, as you can see, guns are the cause of all greatness, freedom, and awesomeness. Except when Obama holds one.
An armed society is a dead society.
Rhodesia, and they had a fabulous army.
The answer to all these questions, and many more, is insanity. A large percentage of Americans have gone insane. And they're heavily armed, and increasingly delusional. A fun recipe for fun! Don't worry though, their gun owning fetish is for white folks only.
Meanwhile, in America...
