How is what I stated opinion? I can see the difference and they have said they can’t wait to get back to this country.

I also know Brits who have said they’ll never go back.

Yet, your family members in GB, want to come back to this cluster ****?

Why did they leave and if they're so eager to come back, what's the holdup?

If I need to explain to you why the USA is the greatest nation ,to ever exist on this globe, Im going to bet youre one of those that think America was never great.

Thats okay brushman , and Ill tell you why . This is America
The constitution guarantees you the right to free speech . It also guarantees rights , you may choose not to exercise .

It does not give you the right to choose the ones I exercise. Capiche
Exercise all you want, you won't gain any muscle!

England doesn't have our constitution established to start with to enforce ... our form of government (co-equal branches of government) is unique...

England is a sixth the size in population and their GDP is a ninth the size of our GDP... Their form of government couldn't handle what the USA established and they could never overcome it despite being the economic center at the time...

Having England attempt to run the USA would truly be a tail-wags-the dog scenario... they'd have no idea what to do... if in some way it came to pass, it would become just like their monarchy is... siphoning off money from the population without giving much in return...
Our government at this time has no clue what to do, it can't figure out if the tail is wagging or not!
Oh, and our system isn't siphoning money off the population? Please, open your EYES.

And you want us to surrender our rights to said government? You don't know if you're coming or going you're all over the damn place.

It's not going well for you, I'm okay with that. When a lib doesn't like something they don't want anyone to have it.

We'll start with this. All the long guns were designed to kill, the 5.56 NATO was designed to produce casualties.

Next point. I'd take a 4ga punt gun any day over an ar15.

Or maybe a cannon, people used to have those.

It's not my responsibility to prove your unproven claim. Also it's impossible to prove a negative. So either put up or shut up.

But the difference between you and I is that if I made a claim I can easily and effortlessly prove it. I wouldn't have to turn it around on the other guy to prove it wrong.

Still better than the U.K.

Work sent them there. Waiting on transfers back to the U.S.

In this you are mistaken, freedom is not guaranteed.

If liberty is a muscle, the more you use it , the more you gain

I am trying to determine if you're perspective is limited by lack of historical knowledge/context or if you're just purposely abject to a political bent you want but aren't getting...
