Hmmm. I think history would prove that attitude and drive is not
genetic. Or at least the fact that the riches of a family seldom
stay in the family past a couple generations would lead one to
believe that genetics has little to do with success. That is an
interesting position. Genetically diverse yes, predisposed to
drive, success, or any other positive trait, I don't think so. It
seems to me that the evidence points to nurture over nature in

people flocked to the us, my grandfather walked across Germany
to get to a boat to come here. That's not uncommon among
immigrants, even the current ones from South of the border and
South of the borders border that have walked here.
We took Africa and Irelands people @nd bred the best stock
over and over. The US is in fact genetically superior to the
rest of the planet because we have the rest 9f the planets
Our nutjobs, even they are superior genetically. Fuck balls

Even Pence is cautiously distancing himself from the
rigged vote paranoia.. The Republicans really tried
to change voter ID laws in different states. They
failed.. I know folks who had to take literacy tests
in order to vote back in 60s. We will not go back to
that.. Ever.. America has changed... Too many
educated folks know better than to allow narrow minded
bigots to take over our system. Some groups are
planning violence as what happened with Kansas militia
against immigrants... Yeah right like most US born
folks would jump at chance to work in a chicken
processing factory. I told my far right friend that
the sleeping giant would be awaken. Voter
registration is super high in many minority
communities... November 8 will be here sooner than you

Our dollar it does, our military it did.
Might and money are the only two things that
actually control globalism. Name one single
country that would not have a major impact if
we pulled either from the global stage. .
None is the answer

Not sure I agree with this …. the US is
one very large and powerful country yes …
but (and I’m not trying to stir
controversy here despite it sounding like
it) it’s one country out of many … and
there are many other large and powerful
countries out there. I’m not saying that
the US isn’t a major player and that some
countries hurt more than others when
things happen in the US but the “world”
doesn’t centre around the US as much as
Americans seem to think it does

If you want to feel sorry for anybody,
feel sorry for the majority of the
planet who has become accustomed to
riding the coat tails of the US in one
major way or another. If and when we
fall, it will be a disaster globally.
