    The United States Constitution was founded on the right of freedom for people and by people and of our people. That shall not be infringed. Our country was founded, in part, on these truths. We know what men in power want. Men in power want more power.. We know that men can be tricked.

    History teaches many many duplicate examples of man attempting to conquer and do terrible things to people. We know that.

    No kidding at all.
    Not really making any sense though either.

    You're correct that Pearl Harbor doesn't count as an invasion. They never occupied Hawaii, or tried to. They simply attacked the base and destroyed a lot of naval vessels. I think you're off on their motivation, though. Do you have a source for that, or is it just speculation?

    I think it's more likely that they didn't invade Hawaii because it would stretch their resources and be extremely hard to hold. They probably thought it would be better to just decimate a large portion of the U.S. fleet, and then concentrate on Asia.
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    They are meant for one shot, as of now. They aren't supposed to be a replacement for traditional firearms... yet.
