How is the US oppressed?
Loveshismom says2014-05-14T07:20:27.9629480-05:00
Cuz it listens to what the devil tells it, that's how

The general US population would be more oppressed if it didnt "listen to what the devil tells it". I assume your problem is that gay marriage and abortion are legal, no?

It isn't in my view Comrade_Silly_Otter. But I have seen so many times on the internet people complaining about how seemingly oppressed the US, with an ultra corrupt government. People say how they are no longer free, have no rights and that the US is becoming a police/totalitarian state. So I put up this poll to see if people on DDO believe that or not.

Ha,I used to believe that. Considering I used to be an Anarchist because I thought if I could handle myself, surely others could to. But I soon learned that people need rules. However when I had Socialist tendencies at the time, thinking that people would work together for the common good. I switched to Socialism when I first researched it.

@Comrade_Silly_Otter: I am glad with the results of this poll. I was starting to worry a huge proportion of the American population was deluded.
numberwang says2014-05-14T10:50:05.0362254-05:00
Only a large population of internet users!
Comrade_Silly_Otter says2014-05-14T10:50:41.5413004-05:00
Small but vocal population.

@numberwang: Alas, I have no other way of communicating with Americans. Though (in 2012) 81% of the US population had internet access.

@Comrade_Silly_Otter: I once saw a comment on a game trailer, the game being "Wolfenstein: The New Order", which depicts the world in the 1960s where the Nazi's won the Second World War and the Nazi regime forced the world into submission. You can imagine what the trailer comprised of, and someone literally commented saying "Looks no different from real America". I cannot believe someone would be so unintelligent to compare the US to the Nazi regime and to be honest, their comment was an insult to those who actually suffered due to Nazi German actions.

If you watch the right TV station (Fox) or if you listen to some of the conservative pundits in America they compare Obama to Hitler all the time, and they . For whatever reason (mostly because he's black) they've decided he's a Muslim communist terrorist nazi whatever bent on the destruction of the US. To be fair the whole NSA surveillance thing and the thuggish intimidation used in the Bush administration to silence critics of the surveillance and the Iraq war both mildly resemble an oppressive government running wild, but most of that happened under Bush anyway. The Nazi thing is really ridiculous I agree.
numberwang says2014-05-14T11:04:02.4219012-05:00
And they compare the US to the Wiemar republic****

Americans just can't have a dystopian debate about your future with inserting Godwin's Law and frankly, it is PATHETIC. There has been many, many other atrocities as bad or worse than the Third Reich, but Americans revel in the Nazi regime and know nothing about it, about Germans, or present day Germany. The US is far from the Weimar Republic as well because the US is not in the same situation Germany was. That is way it is so offensive and stupid. For a country that is so powerful and wealthy, I really do not understand the constant whining, division, derision, and the thoughts of oppression, when you people have no clue of any type of oppression , except maybe some relatives of slaves.
