What has America become?


Has America become the land of special interest and home of the double standard?

Lets see: if we lie to the Congress, it's a felony and if the Congress lies to us its just politics; if we dislike a black person, we're racist and if a black person dislikes whites, its their 1st Amendment right; the government spends millions to rehabilitate criminals and they do almost nothing for the victims; in public schools you can teach that homosexuality is OK, but you better not use the word God in the process; you can kill an unborn child, but it is wrong to execute a mass murderer; we don't burn books in America, we now rewrite them; we got rid of communist and socialist threats by renaming them progressive; we are unable to close our border with Mexico, but have no problem protecting the 38th parallel in Korea; if you protest against President Obama's policies you're a terrorist, but if you burned an American flag or George Bush in effigy it was your 1st Amendment right.

You can have pornography on TV or the internet, but you better not put a nativity scene in a public park during Christmas; we have eliminated all criminals in America, they are now called sick people; we can use a human fetus for medical research, but it is wrong to use an animal.

We take money from those who work hard for it and give it to those who don't want to work; we all support the Constitution, but only when it supports our political ideology; we still have freedom of speech, but only if we are being politically correct; parenting has been replaced with Ritalin and video games; the land of opportunity is now the land of hand outs; the similarity between Hurricane Katrina and the gulf oil spill is that neither president did anything to help.

And how do we handle a major crisis today? The government appoints a committee to determine who's at fault, then threatens them, passes a law, raises our taxes; tells us the problem is solved so they can get back to their reelection campaign.

What has happened to the land of the free and home of the brave?

    Its the same as Europe where politicians lie and get away with it and we are prosecuted for voicing our opinion.
  • Whyputaname 2012/06/13 00:41:39
    Why has it turned out this way....Hmmm, could it be because every time someone says something just isn't right a Reichtie has to remind people that it is none of their business.....

    Thats until Gay and Lesbians want to get married and Women want equal rights and Free Birth Control and a Black Man gets into office....

    Then it becomes a problem for the Reichties.......

    The only time they believe that people should stay out of peoples business is when everyone thinks and acts alike......Right Reichties!!!!!!!

    If America really was the land of the free and brave, then I don't get why there are people posting homophobic pictures (God hates fag enablers?).

    One of of the very worst things America has become is having a commie, moslem loving, FRAUD-US usurper in the White House. Let's not forget:

    Yep, we have screwed ourselves with being so Politically Correct, and Stupid in Public. We no long vote for somebody based on their merit and work ethics, We support every Special Interest Group around, above the Citizens. Our Courts have allowed Unions, and Corporations to spend unlimited amounts enabling them to buy elections. The Government has far out stretched its Authority by not following the Constitution. And ignoring their written limitations in their Enumerated Powers. So what would you expect but a bloated government, out of control spending, and redistribution of wealth. To which there is no direct connection within the Constitution, Its all Socialist Hearsay on the part of the Progressives and their Liberal ilk.
