    In the US this perverted idea of “blood and soil” over “constitutional principles” is the most radical and anti-democratic and anti-Conservative idea I have heard in my lifetime.

    It amazes me that people can bring themselves to use these kinds of worn out, meaningless internet cliches. Either it's a pretty desperate sort of barrel bottom scraping or a sign of terminal imagination deficit.

    Yes, indeed. A fashionable notion, pounced upon and worn threadbare by some who find it suits their purpose and saves them from the arduous work of thought or the perilous confrontation with the complexities of reality. Very much like "get a life" - old and empty.

    Clunky drivel. A pain to read. If you're going to do this sort of thing, please do it well.

    Hmmm.. One is grammatically correct and quite nicely written - showing a real command of the English language. The other has no meter to it. "Clunky" in fact.

    Sorry, you lose again.

    Oh dear. You seem to be getting more and more desperate. May I suggest that you give it a rest for a while to recover your composure and get a life? I'm not sure what that means, but I presume you do, since you have suggested it so readily to mmd. Go on - give it a try!
