caring for the tired and the poor and the huddled masses or whatever

Fair be fair,

the God of America is Freedom. And this God was worshipped by the indigenous population thousands of years before the Europeans arrived.

The idea of individual and communal freedom is "Indian", there are records of settlers being inspired by such meetings and deciding to adopt them. Caucuses and such (for a European, alien things) are derived from Native American practices.

Trump, as heroic leader of the Free World and defender of the tradition of American Freedom, is in composure much more like an beloved, chosen Chieftain of a free people than he is like a Euro-American establishment-head. A great leader to a great country. Bless all Trump voting Americans.

(As a war against pedophiles is going on right now, I don't wanna bless my political enemies for the moment)

There is nothing you can dig up out of slavery that has any worth, none of it is relevant to the will. A battle is different obviously - these people are still your former enemies. Naturally that has done a lot to avert a consciousness of shame about the ruin done to them - what does one do before a humiliated enemy who is later on recognized to be necessary for ones own dignity?

Cheap stuff, beloved as it is worldwide, does not quite amount to a God though - unless it is actually worshipped. I'm sure that does happen. I doubt you are that devoted to it...

Well.. sourcing the cheapest labour possible is tantamount to (modern) slavery.

Today, Nestle announced that they will cease using Fairtrade ingredients in their KitKats. An odd move.

Yes, cheap labour. My point was that the US is not specific in this, the whole west uses it.
Slavery/cheap stuff is not the god of America. I don't think it is a very sound theurgic concept to work with at least.... if you catch my drift.

I know you do know what a God is.

I first thought, as far as free and strong as a god, there was a religion here, in the glorious 90s



but then I thought,



a deeper religion.
But its gone from the surface entirely now.
