We as Americans have lost our backbone to protect the Constitution of the United States. If some one is wronged, we do not run to their defense, we turn our heads and look the other way. But on the other hand, we refuse to help ourselves anymore. We are dependent of others, and the government for everything, including our Freedoms. We wouldn't even know if one of them, or all of them, has been stripped from us. We send our soldiers overseas to fight for our freedoms, but we refuse to fight for them here at home. Are we not proud to be American anymore? Are we that weak that we refuse to fight for our honor, refuse to work for our wants and needs, and just let the government tell us anything, and we would believe them? This is not the America I knew as a child. This not the America our forefathers fought so hard for. We threw out prayer in schools, threw out the Bibles from schools, threw out teaching the truth in our schools, and for what? We have become so lazy, we are destroying America from within.
We no longer have the right to say what we believe, or speak the truth, for fear of stepping on somebody's precious little toes. We no longer have the right to write or pray for fear of offending somebody. The democrats have gone from the conservative view to the extreme left; and the republicans are not far behind them. We let the government raise our kids, teach our kids, and half hardheartedly discipline our kids. The government's fingers are in every aspect of our private, public, and business life. Before long, we will be under the control of a government on foreign soil.
It is time for America to wake up from its stupor, take control of their lives, and get back into being productive citizens again, not the lazy, you owe me your stuff mentality. We have gone from being the greatest nation on earth under God, to a third rate, atheistic, nation under liberalism. And it shows so much we have become the laughing stock of the world. We can get back to where we belong, but it will be a struggle, because we have been entrenched in the filth too long. What you need to do is look at your government of your childhood, then compare it to now. Can you not see the difference? Wake up America and be strong once again, and forever.
