What would you die for?

What cause do you believe in so much that you would die for it? Gay marriage? Prop 8? DOMA? SOPA? Obama? Abortion? Equal pay for women? Contraception? Stem cells?

by Anonymousreply 6111/23/2012

For the cause to exist; for the cause to be discredited; for the cause to gain followers; for the cause to have a raised profile; for the cause to dominate.

What do you mean OP?

I guess I'm dying for Josh over in that other thread.

I'm with you R3. We're not perfect; many changes are needed, that's for sure. But it IS our country. If you wouldn't die for it, then leave it. And I hope hte door kicks you in the ass as you leave.

Who in their right fucking mind would die for a country of which 50% are obese, stupid, willfully ignorant uneducated morons who believe in blind worship and vilify intelligence?

I am ashamed to be an American, and I am working my ass off to save enough money to get the fuck out of here and never look back.

You know, R9, yes, we DO have a lot of faults; no one in their right mind would dispute that. But, if you are that unhappy, that you don't even believe in the vision, then it is time to leave.

by Anonymousreply 1110/20/2012

If it came down to it, and they'd take me, yes I would die for my country. I would die for my family members and loved ones. That's about it.

R11, R9 said he is saving to leave America. If you're following visions you may benefit from some anti-psychotic drugs.

Nothing; I'm not that deluded or have any illusions about "causes" or nationalism or any religion. To go out there and say, "I'll die for this" is akin to suicide and it has been said that suicide is a form of egotism, an ego act...Buddhists say that if you commit suicide you will be reborn to repeat the life you just led just as surely as you tried to push it away for any reason. And this bullshit of saying a good piece of cake or pizza for example is "to die for" is just that, alot of silly bullshit--I think those who use that expression should stop and think about what it means. I know they are probably trying to be humorous but that humor is stale.

Which country, r3?

by Anonymousreply 1710/20/2012

Are there really people who would still die for their country? How bizarre. Are they all older than 40? Do they want to lick Romney's taint? The nation-state is increasingly irrelevant in modern society - if you have to die, die for your family or a very dear friend.

If you're going to die for your country, then die HERE, your enemies are here. Don't go fighting wars for our masters against foreign lands that have done us no harm. Every intrigue the USA has involved itself with in the last century has had as it's goal the advancement of the agenda of your enemies. Well fuck them, and YOU if you think I have to "love" the nation as it exists now. I don't. I'm a citizen and I don't have to accept with things as they are. Suck it.

Jeebus Cripes...John Wayne-style Love-It-Or-Leave-it types on DL. Well, I've heard that Marion liked the boys on the side.

by Anonymousreply 2010/20/2012

By the way, one of the great things about the USA is you don't have to "be willing to die" for it in order to live there and pursue your dreams. So fuck you, r3 and Anon, with this "then leave!" bullshit.

My nieces & nephews. They're all good young people with a lot to offer and I love them as if they were my own. That's it.

Die for this piece of shit country? Are you insane? I was born here but just have easily could have been born in Botswana and I wouldn't die or that shit either. Nation states are artificial. I'm just not that tribal.

OH, r19 (and I think you're PPSM), just read what I said again, it's not mangled syntax! I don't know why I got an "oh dear" for it; how would you say it? I know you know what I was trying to say!

Globalism has made dying for your country irrelevant. We outsource our dying now.

I would say to save my parents, but I know for sure they wouldn't want them. To save them from torture or a slow death I would anyway.

There are a number of people, Sean Hannity comes to mind, that I would do jail time for in order to beat the shit out of them.
