      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

at least Teddy R. would show some respect for our national parks and forests. Maybe Bush should actually visit these places before razing them.

It cracks me up how the self-avowed right here can never debate politics objectively and factually. They sink to demagoguery as soon as irrefutable points are brought up. How pathetic! I think you guys would follow the US flag straight to hell without question (which is where this whole bloody international mess seems to be headed) because to do otherwise would be "unpatriotic"!

 

You guys bring a new dimension to blind patriotism! rockband.gif

Oh Trask, if you only knew me! ROTC in high school, dad, uncles, and grandfathers all vets, and I am from the South. 'Bout as conservative as you can get. Member of the NRA and far from an Oregon Hippie. In Eugene I am extreme right (and not because I was the only one who didn't vote for Nader grin.gif) But Bush is a fuck-up. Put another Republican in there! I don't care. Just not Bush! He has no leadership abilities and relies on his staff to bail him out! Seriously! I love the US of A, just with another leader at the healm, that's all. Is it so bad, to admit he is not the best one for the job and that there are many others who are? If I were a hard-core Rep. or Democrat, I would want the best guy we have in the role, otherwise you face having the American people turn the other way......Since I am not party affiliated and go with whomever I feel is best for the job, it doesn't matter to me as much....but for thos who are left-or right, think about it....

I will follow the U.S. flag anywhere it flys, asshole. You know what they say, "Mine is not to question why...Mine is but to do or die." Call me whatever you want.

The scary part Ryland is that many here seem to feel he really is the best one for the job.

I know...Just look at Trask's last quote! Go ahead, Trask, be the lemming and jump off the cliff when Bush does, may help the rest of us. If you never question, then you never think for yourself and always assume. I guess that is the difference between a leader and follower. Traqsk's quote sounds like propaganda from when someone fucked up but didn't want to have to deal with someone questioning their actions!

Doesn't matter. Like I said, I would do what my President asked me to do. BTW doofus, Nader & Gore are both too fucked up to be President.

Ahh come on, trask! Gore's gonna be our next president!

 

But what if our pres was overturning the constitution, usurping powers illegally? Like what happened in Germany with Hitler? Would there be a point when you would say "No more, Mr. President."? Or would you continue following him/her no matter what?

Would any of you George Bush fans or promoters of the war against Iraq care to answer my questions about what has been and what should be our role with respect to arms proliferation? I know you probably think it was cool to seize the scuds headed for Yemen, but I'm curious what you think about these matters in a broader context.

I'm too ignorant to answer very intelligently Matt, but in a nutshell, I wish the U.S. would quit using arms as pawns. I'm in favor of seizing arms in transit.

Oh come on, trask. You're no fun! Just play the hypothetical game with me!

 

Never be so sure that it couldn't happen. We are a very young nation, with a relatively short life so far. What will bring us down, if down we go? Of course it could be an internal coup of some sort. Remember, a state of emergency over-rides constitutional protections, dude. And a state of emergency can be justified in MANY ways. Why, I'd bet most americans could be conned into one right now! Do you really think we're that far away?

 

So if it went down that road, I guess you'd be the one protecting the leadership, not the principles that this nation was founded on....
