In the age of 'hope and change' Americans are losing faith the institutions of the USA.




MUNCIE, Ind.—Johnny Whitmire shuts off his lawn mower and takes a long draw from a water bottle...Whitmire is an angry man. He is among a group of voters most skeptical of President Obama: noncollege-educated white males. He feels betrayed—not just by Obama, who won his vote in 2008, but by the institutions that were supposed to protect him: his state, which laid off his wife; his government in Washington, which couldn’t rescue homeowners who had played by the rules; his bank, which failed to walk him through the correct paperwork or warn him about a potential mortgage hike; his city, which penalized him for somebody else’s error; and even his employer, a construction company he likes even though he got laid off. “I was middle class for 10 years, but it’s done,” Whitmire says. “I’ve lost my home. I live in a trailer now because of a mortgage company and an incompetent government.”

    The annihilation of American institutions is not a by-product of liberalism, it is the prime objective of liberalism.

    Liberals know that they cannot create their neo-Marxist utopia without revolution and Barack Obama embodies the progressive campus-radical revolutionary.

    Progressives haven't made Americans lose faith in the USA. Americans lost faith in the U.S. when our President lied us into a $3 trillion dollar war he put on a credit card to a communist country driving our national debt through the roof while doing nothing to address the terrorist attack on our country except blowing holes in our liberties. We lost faith in our country when activist judges in the Supreme court handed our Democracy over to multinational corporations who are pumping billions of dollars into election propaganda that has not a shred of truth in it instead of putting money to good use. We lost faith in the U.S. when our current President found our banks breaking the law, stealing billions and not one responcible banker went to jail. We lost faith when Wall St. turned from a way to invest in business to a gambling casino without the regulations that keep Atlantic City and Vega "honest". There is no progressive "movement". Progressives aren't organized. As individuals they try to encourage spending their tax dollars on education, the sick, the poor and the veterans. Hardly something to be afraid of.

    Both of these answer's are incredibly stupid. Not everyone who opposes Obama is a racist, some are, but im sure just as many, or probably more believe that he is either too radical, or too moderate. And in the same way, the progressive movement is in no way about the destruction of America to create a liberal utopia, that is just a stupid answer in general.

    Yup. Dudley's horse ran off with Nell finally, and Snidely did not have anything to do. So, after selling Russia down the river, and devaluing countless currencies across the world, he came to the United States to help destroy the country.

    If only the Russians could get him back to Russia.

    The basic premise of the Progressive movement is to make Government so big it controls every Citizens life. Its Communism basically . The way to lose faith in your country is to give all your Individual freedom to the Government.

    I answered this with a "no" even though you loaded the answer with racism. Obviously everyone who opposes Obama is not racist.
    I think your question is just the opposite of the truth. It's the Republican hard right wing that has created instability, immobility, fear, hatred and total dysfunction in the government. I haven't lost faith in America but I am afraid for America. It the hard right wins in November, we are all screwed. We will see the total dismantling of all the programs and advances we've made going all the way back to FDR who was possibly our greatest president. We will be brought back into the dark ages of accusations, conformity, fear and recrimination. I've experienced every president since Eisenhower and I have never been more concerned, and even afraid, for my country as I am right now.

    No, the Progressives have been injecting Karl Marx into Laws and ridgid social orders into America since Woodrow Wilson, but picked up the pace with FDR and poured on the steam when defeating the name of McCarthy.
    You cannot imagine the amount of words and phrases directly from the Marxist Leniist Texts bantied about since Obama took office. Yet they will say Capitolism is a FAILURE while it is th Marxist Failure here in America that has it guts alrdy rotting on th floor. No recovery has ever been in the Offing by Obama

    These progressives should read ancient philosophical recounts of the outright failure regarding a utopian society. It's an impossibility. But apparently history is not something they tend to..or perhaps they do, if so, then their intent is much more insidious than initially presumed. At any rate these supposed 'do gooders', are only self interested, all this humanitarian speak is actually aimed at corrupting and controlling the masses thinking. They could give a fig about the common man..the good news is due to their out of control arrogance, what once was hidden is now completely visible by anyone caring to actually look. For some, there will never be an awareness..perhaps it makes them too uncomfortable or perhaps it's just complacency. The bad news is, if the progressive movement is not curtailed..we the people will become we the imprisoned slaves. We are already slave labor..taxation on labor is not legal..the IRS is a UK based subsidiary..we actually pay taxes to the inbred royals and their global cabal of luciferian scum. Do you think you actually own anything in our beautiful America? We do own one thing however than can never be exacted or removed by TPTB..our freedom of choice, our perception and our discernment. Remember brothers and sisters..there is power...

    I love your brain, will you marry me? You are correct you don't own anything in America, especially property! You purchase the right to pay taxes on that property. If you think you own property, don't pay the taxes for a few years, you'll find out different real soon!

    Given the question, I think you needed a 'neither' answer. I think many have lost faith in the USA due to the progressives on BOTH sides of the aisle, but on the other hand, I think it lies more squarely that we've lost faith in the people that continue to elect these progressives in the first place.

    Especially the progressive (less informed politically) who are so suckered into believing and supporting Obama and his extreme liberal agenda, that we need to get rid of. It doesn't take but a 2nd grader to see that Obama has little to no clue what America wants and what they don't. Our Country has never been so divided since Obama and his Socialist and beyond rein. For the benefit of ALL Americans, including the progressive liberals, Obama needs to vacate the office. His "excuse and blame jar" has already over flowed.
