I don't care, I decide for myself. If everything is steered, at least it doesn't come and tell me something.

People are always changing their point of view. I did. I converted to Catholicism from Protestantism. This person became a Protestant after being Mormon.

Not under many religions it isn't, checkout Islam and Scientology off the bat.

In free societies, yes. I remember something about USA being founded on such principles?

You know, you're right BVS. You can't really trust what's in the textbooks.

Although I really like the 'idea' of america, I'm not willing to fight in combat for it, and I begrudgingly pay taxes, and never vote. I figure, what's the point anyway?

Well I always thought the textbooks were right with this one, but the citizens were obviously not reading them...

But I thought people were originally being sent from Europe to explore the "New World" for the sole purpose of bringing back goods?

Right, all new textbooks have corrected it as such. It was always about exploitation. We just lucked out with the whole 'freedom and rights' stuff.

No, I'm completely serious here, not trying to argue with you. Spain, England, etc. all originally came to this side of the globe for the purpose of bringing back riches. You said above that freedom of religion was what the USA was founded upon. But it was actually "founded" by people looking to bring back unique goods to market and increase their wealth. We did learn about that in the textbooks. Although, often some are written in such a way to steal the glory of the Jamestown colony and claim that the Plymouth Rock colony was the first solid colony...but...that's for another discussion.
