Yes, I fully believe it's treason. There is literally a faction of nutjobs that controls a significant fraction of the Republican party, as well as a good chunk of the Democratic, and they are the greatest threat this nation has ever faced, because they claim to be American while they actively and willfully destroy it from the inside.
What people are you referring to? This sounds like a baseless, borderline conspiracy theory. Even if you could show that there are people in both political parties exerting subtle influence, you'd have to prove that they're doing it specifically to harm the country (which is nearly impossible). It was an implausible statement before you threw the term willfully in there.
That isn't to say that if you have any reliable sources that you've built this thesis on, I wouldn't love to see that information.
The sad truth is that it seems that the two major parties have been hijacked(internationalists/socialists/international banking cabal/Israel Firsters, who knows?) and they are leading the country into ruin.
Seems based on what? Again, you can think the two parties are damaging the country and causing problems. I'm with you there. They are doing a terrible job of running things, but it's the claim of something sinister and willful that makes statements like that ridiculous.
While a lot of issues that come up before our governing bodies are legitimate(same sex marriage and other social issues), NONE OF THEM WILL MATTER IF WE ARE ALL BANKRUPT AND BEHOLDEN TO CORPORATE INTERESTS AND INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS.
Ah the famed, "America's Sovereignty is under attack" dogma.
Reimplementing the Gold Standard
Leaving the government with very little control over monetary policy. There's a reason we switched off of the gold standard. The value of the U.S. dollar isn't in decline because there are evil internationalists attacking us, it's because America's relative power is declining. Economic and otherwise, as other places around the world advance, by comparison we will be lessened. That's just how it is. Everyone else will not remain in the dark ages forever.
The United Nations seems to be pushing towards a one-world government, which is in contradiction to the American Constitution, particularly where the United States is an independent republic.
The United Nations does like to make demands on particular governments and has asked us to do certain things that we didn't want to do. We never listened to them before, so why do you think we're going to start doing it now? They have absolutely no real power or authority, they simply exist as a basis for international diplomatic efforts and a stage for member nations (which actually do have power) to band together to exercise it. The U.N. is nothing more than the podium, it's the speakers that have the power. But if you have any evidence to support your theory that they're going to eventually overtake us, or somehow force us into a one world government, then present it.
Tell China to stop intentionally devaluing their currency or they can go F- themselves
I'm with you here. There is plenty of evidence that they've been doing this.
Get out of Iraq
It's not like we're... in the process... of doing this... or anything.
Stop worrying wtf France thinks about us
Yeah, who cares what our allies think! We can piss off any other nation that we like for the hell of it then laugh in their faces and suffer absolutely no consequences! USA, USA
We wouldn't be in the current predicament now if we hadn't shipped all our industrial work to China and India.
That would be nice. So uh, how exactly do we go about doing this? There's a reason why the work went overseas, it's because they're willing to do it much cheaper than Americans. The cost of living is much lower over there, so it will always be cheaper to have them manufacture it and then to ship it off over here. Unless you're advocating moving towards communist and cutting off economic ties, those Industrial jobs were forever lost to the Global Capitalist Market.
AGW is a farce. Yes, the climate is changing. Yes, the climate has always been changing. There isn't a damn thing we can do about it. While there are good things about caring for our environment, under no circumstances should we put the environment before the people. The environment isn't a citizen of this nation, the people are.
It's possible that the risk global warming poses is overblown or that there's nothing we can do about it. It's even possible that humans aren't the cause of the warming. But the opposite is also possible and far more likely ( as it is supported by the vast majority of research and scientific organizations). Perhaps your reading of the evidence, literature, and data has led you to that conclusion, but the certainty in which you hold your conclusions is entirely irrational. Especially the fraud statement, whenever someone talks in such black and white language on the subject of global warming, they expose themselves to be practically religious about the subject matter.
Mind you all, these are simply my opinions, and are not being presented as absolute facts. If you want to discuss them, go for it. But please keep in mind that you likely also do not have the 'facts', as everything in the political field is opinion, not fact.
[/end Vekseidish Logical Fallacy disclaimer]
Calling something a fraud is presenting it as an absolute fact. If you wanted to present it as an opinion, you would say, "I think Global Warming is a fraud," or, "I don't think the evidence supports Global Warming as strongly as the scientific communist claims it does." Your choice of language was strong and certain throughout, which really makes you look like a conspiracy theorist (which ironically I think you were trying to avoid).
On the subject of the CIA leak, I don't think it qualifies as treason, but nor do I think a soldier should be considered treasonous for mentioning something as trivial as you mentioned Callie. In my view, Treason is doing something fairly dramatic that knowingly hurts your country in exchange for personal gain. I don't think Scooter Libby or whoever outed Valerie Plame did it with the specific intention of hurting America. Should they be prosecuted and punished to the fullest extent of the law? Yes, but declared treasonous? In my opinion, proving treason should be every bit as difficult as proving libel and slander.
