The Brownists were about religious freedom for themselves, but not others.

It's always like that. And they were quick to secure their "lion's
share" from the Indians...

"...symbolically speaking, there are legitimate reasons for thinking
of them as America's parents: their religiosity, their isolationism,
their earnestness and grit. If you're inclined to look at the history
of America as one of exploitation, they can be made to fit that too.
They started with an honest and thoroughly biblical mission. That
their colony would become caught up in massacre and sadness, one could
reasonably conclude, underscores the danger of believing that God
guides one's hand."

And we still living the consequences of ISOLATIONISM, and a
religiosity that leads to exploitation and superiority over all other
people of the Earth.

This is Bush people...

Evangelicals Say They Led Charge For the GOP

As the presidential race was heating up in June and July, a pair of
leaked documents showed that the Bush-Cheney reelection campaign was
urging Christian supporters to turn over their church directories and
was seeking to identify "friendly congregations" in battleground
states.

Those revelations produced a flurry of accusations that the Bush
campaign was leading churches to violate laws against partisan
activities by tax-exempt organizations, and even some of the White
House's closest religious allies said the campaign had gone too far.

But the untold story of the 2004 election, according to national
religious leaders and grass-roots activists, is that evangelical
Christian groups were often more aggressive and sometimes better
organized on the ground than the Bush campaign. The White House
struggled to stay abreast of the Christian right and consulted with
the movement's leaders in weekly conference calls. But in many
respects, Christian activists led the charge that GOP operatives
followed and capitalized upon.

This was particularly true of the same-sex marriage issue. One of the
most successful tactics of social conservatives -- the ballot
referendums against same-sex marriage in 13 states -- bubbled up from
below and initially met resistance from White House aides, Christian
leaders said.

That's why we need the Dutch Package to free up their minds. Perhaps
some weed would pacify them... ;)

So you are taking upon your shoulder to remove all tyrants that
commit crimes against their own people, or just that those who oppose
you? Again, you many friends like that, and Hussein himself was you
ally against Iran. What did he do wrong? He broke the golden rule the
King of the Jungle tolerates... COMPETITION NOT ALLOWED. Invading Iran
was OK, but invading Kuwait was not.

Some of them are the same under a different camouflage. But some
really offered a hope, particularly Gore, whose presidency you stole.

Better in anyone's hands than in the tanks of the SUVs. They are the
ones that terrorize American roads.

So you are claiming you didn't invade Iraq for oil. How come you
didn't invade, say, Cuba, and took over the sugar cane fields? Hey,
why won't you donate the Iraqi oil profits for the environment or even
for the children whose Medicare you deny? Then I'd believe you... ;)

Do you think the Religious Right is part of this deceit game too? A
system that produces War, Environmental Recklessness and SUVs while
preaching of a Messiah that rode a donkey?

is necessarily the test of prowess, and wastefulness the sole
criterion of power." -Upton Sinclair, book 'The Jungle'
