All you say is true. The Americans engage in all those things...because they are free people. No one requires Americans to do those things, and I disagree with them all.

But you must understand that the choices free people make are sometimes not the choices you or I would make. It is the individual who must pay the consequences of their choices. Neither I, nor you, have the right to make those decisions for others. Down that road is tryanny and destruction. One problem with the mythology of the Mu'slams is that the mythology demands that the Mu'slams judge others, and punish those that offend the mythology that the Mu'slams advocate. Free people cannot allow this to happen, and remain free. Once individuals taste freedom, for better or worse, they will fight to keep it.

Bad choices are better than no choices. We believe that this "Freedom" is a gift from our Creator. We will not surrender it, give it away, or allow any mythology that allows the barbarity that "Islam " allows to take it from us. Not now, not ever.
