    I'm a liberal Atheist and anti-Fascist but not a real Socialist.
    I like the USA, but don't like Donald Trump and the KKK. :D
    I'm not a native English speaker, so please excuse my mistakes.

    What orders do you mean? I'm the most unsuitable person for military service. I don't respect most supervisors.

    I thought you guys were good at "following orders".

    Welcome to the forum! I don't fully understand how the term "liberal" is understood in Germany. Does it typically conjure allegiance with the FDP? That's been my operating assumption. The only Germans I know here are AFDers and those floating on the spectrum between the SPD and CDU.

    "Liberal" has of course a wide meaning. It covers almost everything from anarchism to economic liberalism. In my opinion, Liberalism is the base of democracy and also the opposite of Totalitarism. Therefore, SPD and CDU both are liberal to a given extent. SPD is more socialist than liberal and CDU is more conservative than liberal.

    AFD is an extreme right-wing, fascist, racist and xenophobic party. It is something like a modern-day NSDAP (Hitler party). Many Germans fear that the AfD has the potential power to bring back the madness of the "Third Reich".

    I myself have, indeed, elected the FDP. :)

    I'm of Polish descent. All people here have migration background. Ethnic Germans are a myth. Maybe you also believe in a myth that Germans are something like natural born killing machines designed by Adolph Hitler. This is, what your government told you during WW2, right?

    The Germans were "the Hun" in WWI, if not in WWII as well, and who were the Huns?

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Huns
    The Huns were a nomadic people who lived in Central Asia, the Caucasus, and Eastern Europe, between the 4th and 6th century AD. According to European tradition, they were first reported living east of the Volga River, in an area that was part of Scythia at the time; the Huns' arrival is associated with the migration westward of a Sarmatian people, the Alans.[1] By 370 AD, the Huns had arrived on the Volga, and by 430 the Huns had established a vast, if short-lived, dominion in Europe.

    So, yeah. Germans are apparently the descendants of ancient invading nomads from the East.

    Are there no forums in Germany that Germans can post on? I guess the outlawing of free speech in Germany factors in.

    This forum already has plenty of Germans on the forum specifically here to bash the USA while goose-stepping for Germany and Merkel.

    The "RUSSIANS! RUSSIANS! RUSSIANS!" crap is tiresome. So, you are admitting you are an extremist Russian agitator, correct?

    My German is not that good.

    My Euro centric father who spoke 5 languages and was a language purist
    use to complain of American workmanship compared to German
    and would speak of a word in German that had no direct English translation
    and special to the German nation.
    It was like uber thoroughness doing a job. Sounded something like
    "tertigkeit".

    Are you familiar of what I am trying to say?
    Has Germany lost that cultural quality too?

    Things that worked.

    "pitbull" would be a great moniker for a Brit.

    But NOT a German.

    I'm thinking Rottweiler or Doberman here.

    Hallo Landsmann. Gewöhne dich am besten jetzt schon an die absurdesten und dümmsten Diskussionen, die du jemals erlebt hast.


    Someone's little ego is pi**** o** it seems. Has nothing to do with 'outlawing free speech'. It obviously is too complicated for you that some non English native speakers come to English speaking forums to use and practise their English, you know, it's this thing called foreign language. A German speaking forum would use - oh surprise - German and not English.
    One German user bashes the US in his postings, that's Sobo, while you spread lie after lie on everything German (isn't that bashing as well?) and when confronted with facts and, even worse, details you chicken out and have no reliable sources to back up any of your false claims. Proud of that? I'm still waiting for a source to back up your claim that pepper spray is illegal in Germany and cannot be used on a human or that the German government doesn't allow people to attend university or that there is no free choice of career in Germany or that nobody can get rich. I'm waiting.
    And who exactly is goose stepping here?
