Do you believe that America is evolving or devolving as a nation? Why? Why not?
Hard to say. With all the civil unrest it can be said we are devolving. The nation was already divided as far as Republicans and Democrats were concerned, but now with the protesters, and the influx of Muslims it is worse. I say this because there is so much fear and hatred towards the refugees coming in (not by me, but by multitudes of others). This can get bad, very bad, and so many people distrust Obama. Not to mention WWIII looms on the horizon. If people don't unite and get it together, America will fall!
It has been devolving since the 1970s, when we started to lose our manufacturing might because we got taken by foreign oil. We lost our prowess in the auto field, and then we lost Vietnam.
The federal government grew in size and scope and then we started to try and legislate social issues. This trend has grown in the new century, and now we are trying to please the minorities in the country, and even the illegal aliens, and really any aliens, while ignoring the citizens of the country.
The three branches of government have failed as checks and balances, and we have seen the divergence of the goals of the democrats and the republican bring the government to a stand still, This left the executive office and the Supreme Court to be the de facto legislative branch of the country.
We are printing so much money to try and fill the holes in a sinking economy that the economy is fragile and really controlled by super conglomerates that have taken most of their tax obligations away by putting their interest abroad.
The is a thin veneer giving us an illusion that we are the same America of yesterday, but yesterday was real, and America stood for something good.
Today, the US is even baffled by a few terrorists, and it has also made the Middle East worst than it has ever been. We haven't won a war since 1898, and my definition of winning is the resolution of the issues that got us into the war.
This list goes on, but I get sad when I write it down and read it.
It anyone differs with my opinion, then I would welcome being wrong.
We the people
By the people
Of the people
For the people
Does anyone actually see that in action today?

I am so happy to see the conservative vote rallying around the Newtster. You are absolutely right to abandon Romney. He's a shameless flip-flopper, he wears funny underwear and while he does love big business, he just is not mean spirited enough about all the things you hold dear in...

What do you think? I'm not gonna argue it, though I may come in later and post my opinion, but I wondered if many people here would agree with that term as an apt description of our country. Additionally she says“Lest anyone try to convince you that God should be separated from the state, our...

Its really sad that we as Americans let the Democrats and Republicans pull games on us and keep our minds off the really important issues that face us as Americans. How can we not demand real solutions to the problems facing us as Americans. You know I set and listened to the Republican...

Since when is America a "Christian" country? I challenge anyone to find a single mention of Jesus Christ in any of our founding documents."God" does not equal "Christ." I swear to God, yes. I swear to Jesus His son? No.One nation under God, ok. One nation under the...

Why do so many Americans hate America? And if they hate it so much why don't they just leave?One thing that really bothers me is the way some Americans seem to hate everything about America. I'd just like to ask them: "If you hate everything about the country you live in then why are you...
