I understand what you are saying. When I say "I can't wait" it is basically my way of saying of "let's get this unpleasentness started so that we can get it finished and we can start enjoying the liberty that the Founders intended sooner rather than later... and while I am in my 30s, not my 70s".mojo84 wrote:Soccerdad1995 wrote:I think you are reading more into the comment than I did.

Soccerdad, Appeasement is not what my comment is suggesting. Don't twist what I say for the sake of argument. I am very confident none of them was looking forward to and excited about the "fight". Don't try to claim they were.
The conflict here is caused by people who are trying to take away rights from people. I hate that we have people who want to take away our rights. I wish that people did not have that desire to oppress others in this way. I sincerely wish that we could all live in peace and harmony. I really do. But we simply can't stop all evil people from being evil just by wishing that they were different.
The reality is that there are bad people in this world. One of them gave a campaign speech yesterday where he publicly announced that he wants to take away the rights and freedoms of Americans. And that man currently has the sworn loyalty of the most powerful military in the world. So, as much as we all hate it, our choices may well come down to either some level of appeasement by giving up our rights (which will eventually turn into a complete and total abandonment of all rights) or following the examples of our forefathers and exercising our right to change our system of government. Let's all strive to avoid that eventuality if at all possible, but if it comes to it, then yes I welcome the prospect of a fight precisely because the other alternative is so, so much worse.
I read and took what he said as what he said. I am not the one that read more into it or attributed a different meaning to it.
Quit lecturing me about our situation and what we face. I have a full and complete understanding of it. The lecturing is not responsive to my comment and it isn't necessary. Most of not all on here understands.
I guess that line of my comment could be best summed up in the quote: ""If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace." - Thomas Paine, 1780
