GOP - love America?
Woah, Jen, take it easy. Bill is entitled to his thoughts, and he's obviously passionate about what he says. He hasn't called us names as you just have, (he said "you guys" which isn't quite the same as "you people") so though it will probably pain you, I hope you'll refrain from attacking him, or anyone here. And for sure, calling him an "idiot" was a bit too much. Let's keep the conversation a little more civil.
As for me, I believe there are several kernels of truth in what Bill says, but feel there is really nothing that can be done to stop the progress of humanity. The world is becoming smaller and smaller with every day, and it may not be a bad thing to have some sort of overarching entity that makes sure people aren't pouring arsenic into the rivers or doing other such things, both here and in other countries, because it will eventually get back to us.
Going back to a feudal system or a system of absolute lack of government, in this day and age, would quickly result in anarchy. In my opinion, anyway. And I know I'm going to get shit for saying that. Just don't call me a traitor. I'm an Earthling, first and foremost, and feel nationalism is sometimes detrimental to the general welfare of the species.
