    Really? I've heard US pundits say so but they all sounded pretty elite, in particular they focused on the fact that the UK tories were able to simultaneously cut services and raise taxes.

    I've got to say that at least US conservatives are inclined to try and create a trade off, you may receive less services from government but you wont have to pay taxes as a consequence.

    I'm still amazed that the UK conservatives were able to do this and plan to continue to do this, although since the eighties the trend among politicians of all parties is to become more and more bold in their exemplifying of the "obviously in this racket for personal gain and glory" principle.

    I am ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN that government has got to be the only thing that people in the UK are content to pay an infinitely increasing price for while getting less and less and less in return for that money. If any other supplier of goods and services behaved like this you'd not support them but welcome to the strange and getting stranger world of UK politics.

    Also, the present administration wasnt elected, its a little like that embarrassing Bush term no one likes to talk about in the US, in the UK the losers combined and found they had more votes than the remaining party hence the ConDem (conservatives and liberal democrats) coalition.

    I would not fight for my home town, or any town. I did not give who ever is invading life, so I do not have the right to take it away from them. I will assist the injured, I will throw my life away to protect the people I love, but I will not kill. All life is precious, even if it is life that feeds off of others suffering, my reasoning being that even parasites have their place in this world.
    But that does not mean that I am not disgusted by that sort of behavior.

    @Lark. I was talking about the colonies Tories as of 1770s tax structure. Mostly a few light tariff taxes and no income tax.

    for resources if there where none elsewhere or was but already spoken for.

    I would fight but Id relocate the family temporarily. you desire to have anything, you are gonna have to fight; otherwise your gonna constantly end up moving place, to place, to place, living the life of a nomad. I prefer being in one spot.

    it would suck having put so much work into something and having nothing to show for it. No, fighting is never my first option, diplomacy is not a bad approach but in a post apocalyptic world were there is little, im willing to spill a little blood.


    I have not seen that show.

    I wouldn't.

    Why? Because I hate it here and I don't see any benefit from doing so. A name in something I don't even like?

    I wouldn't fight specifically for "my hometown" (or any town). I'd fight to defend my family and the people I love. But we would most likely evacuate...

    Yeah, that's my thinking, I just was curious if its different elsewhere, here I dont feel much connection to my "hometown" its been determined by accident of birth and the majority community, its traditions and political power alienate me to be honest.

    I'm pretty sure Detroit is already the equivalent of a post-apocalyptic nightmare. So no. There are days I can't find a good coney here to save my life and I tell ENFJ man...I want to go home. So I can get a decent coney.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.
