mutha ****** LP dude mike shinoda is a hero of mine, chester can be a prick and the rest of the band is made of decent people, they are my favorite band by far because of their subtle promotion of heavy subjects like war and such. wretches and kings is a song about striking and this one www.youtube.com/watch?v=7_WDFxUIYUM&list=FLgvXWoUhlwLIY8LI9orwEkg&index=8 is about...just listen to it. They dont have the complete best moral values in my mind, but damn they do try to put it out there that **** is ****** up. pic related to content not comment.

Dont listen to this guy, both Season 1 and season 2 is amazing.

Jormungand, its good but I ended up dropping it out of bordem. The anime becomes as hollow as the characters. Everything is dead. I just lost interest just starting into the second season.

Its from the anime Jormungand. I believe its about an arms dealer and an orphaned afghan boy she took in and taught to use guns.

Father: You're gonna make the world safe for democracy!
Joe: What is democracy?
Father: Well it's never bright clear on myself. Like any other kind government it's got something to do with young men killing each other I believe.

Its not the people who actually votes the president in... Electoral College i believe does it. We had times where the popular vote (thats us) didn't win because its the electoral college's vote that really matters.
User avatar #80 to #67 - appleboom (09/17/2013) [-]
The electoral college is dictated by the popular vote, though. There are less than 5 times in the last century that the electoral college in the United States did not vote the way the popular vote dictated it

DURRR **** DA GUBBURMENT LOL IM SO EDGY! MOM, AM I COOL YET?

Im so sick of these whiny and pretentious facebook posts on this website. There is no "old men" dreaming up wars, the system doesn't ******* work that way. There are no rich old people in ivory towers making the decisions, its just various unfortunate events happening to people. Yes, is sucks that people die in war, it sucks that there are people starving and dying, but stop blaming it on the government and start blaming yourselves. Whenever I hear ANYONE blame the government for anything, I automatically assume they're pretentious and probably have a mowhawk of some kind. There is no corruption in the government, there is no illuminati, and there is no NWO, there's just people acting like people.
User avatar #82 to #70 - highhopes (09/17/2013) [-]
Blaming myself? In what way is that MY fault? I don't make those decisions, nor do I support the people who do.

And yes. There is a LOT of corruption in western governments. The most dangerous thing you can do is to blindly follow those who have more power than you.
#99 to #82 - Rascal (09/17/2013) [-]
Buddy, look at your display picture, that just screams "LOOK AT ME! IM SO DEEP! PAY ATTENTION TO ME!"

It's your fault that you didnt get off your lazy ass and make a change in life. And dont even talk to me about "blindly following people" when you're the one who thinks all the worlds problems are from the government.

...

Do you even know what movie my picture is from...?
#104 to #100 - Rascal (09/17/2013) [-]
Yes, and it's a movie perfect for a rebellious teenager like you, faggot.
User avatar #105 to #104 - highhopes (09/17/2013) [-]
What movie is it? And why, exactly, is it perfect for rebellious teenagers?
User avatar #92 to #82 - yutdollacwwwthree (09/17/2013) [-]
The only problem is... they weren't supposed to be powerful.

The US, at least...
User avatar #93 to #92 - highhopes (09/17/2013) [-]
The government weren't suppose to be powerful?
User avatar #94 to #93 - yutdollacwwwthree (09/17/2013) [-]
I'm assuming you're talking about the US system of gov't, if not, well stop reading.

If so, then yes. The gov't was originally founded on having only as much as it needed to survive; as a matter of fact, the title "President" was picked because it is the weakest title for a man in power.
User avatar #95 to #94 - highhopes (09/17/2013) [-]
And now?
User avatar #97 to #95 - yutdollacwwwthree (09/17/2013) [-]
Well, the gov't has blown into the very thing the founding fathers were trying to prevent.
User avatar #7 - ronyx (09/16/2013) [-]
What if that young man wants to fight in the war by his own will?
User avatar #72 to #7 - daboomee (09/17/2013) [-]
You do realize the government can draft you in to war whether you like it or not? If there's an emergency, they WILL draft you.
User avatar #77 to #72 - ronyx (09/17/2013) [-]
That hasn't happened in a very long time. There would need to be a WWIII for that to happen and everyone in the world would be ****** like it or not.
#81 to #7 - Rascal (09/17/2013) [-]
Pretty sure there's a very small minority of people (at least in most civilized countries) that want to go to war for ***** and giggles.
User avatar #83 to #81 - ronyx (09/17/2013) [-]
Clearly you haven't been in the military.
#86 to #83 - Rascal (09/17/2013) [-]
Really? Because i've lived on military bases all of my life, literally every single person I know is in the military and none have the attitude you just described. Nor anyone i've ever met has even had the slightest resemblance to that statement.
User avatar #87 to #86 - ronyx (09/17/2013) [-]
Well holy **** we must be from different worlds then.
#96 to #87 - Rascal (09/17/2013) [-]
Or maybe you've watched Apocalypse now a few too many times, believe it or not not everyone in the military is a bloodthirsty maniac.
User avatar #124 to #96 - ronyx (09/17/2013) [-]
Or maybe you're not the only one that has been around and knows their way in the military. I never said everyone in the military were bloodthirsty maniacs, so if you can't read then kindly shut the **** up and stop wasting my time.
User avatar #38 to #7 - rangerofthesea (09/17/2013) [-]
i would protect my country from invaders or enemies by my own free will. but just because i am willing and able doesnt make it right to just throw lives away
User avatar #41 to #38 - ronyx (09/17/2013) [-]
All I'm saying is that not all soldiers are forced into the army. Lot of them join because they like it.
User avatar #42 to #41 - rangerofthesea (09/17/2013) [-]
you are right. but my point still stands. just because you have a bunch of people willing to die for you. doesnt mean you throw around that power willy nilly
User avatar #43 to #42 - ronyx (09/17/2013) [-]
To you it might seem like they just woke up one day and said "Oh let's start a war and get as many soldiers as we can killed", but to many of us it's not that way. I'm not saying you are wrong, but don't go discarding other ideas to uphold your own ideals.
User avatar #45 to #43 - rangerofthesea (09/17/2013) [-]
i am not saying anything against your ideals. but there is not as much thought being put into these wars as should be. they are the leaders because we chose them. and i expect them to do their best to talk things out instead of slashing with their sword...because there are only two things that are absolute about war. people will die. and you cant stop it.
User avatar #46 to #45 - ronyx (09/17/2013) [-]
Well to each their own.
