By reading forum post or watching the news one can easily answer this question. As a nation we face so many problems because we have lost a sense of who we are and have become divided as a result. Our country has always stood for a free market, the Constitution, and freedom. However, the courts and government in general, have perverted the Constitution and the principals that have made this such a great nation. Many bash groups like the Tea Party who simply stand for the founding principals such as the Constitution, free markets, and fiscal responsibility. The Tea Party is simply a group of Americans who have united so that their voice is heard. While I am in no way affiliated with the Tea Party, I respect what they say, have done, and are doing. I remind you that movements such as this have involvement from various political parties who support the ideals the United States was founded on and many throughout the United States history have lost their lives fighting to preserve.
The KKK also thought they were preserving what was right about America.. just saying
Yes those crazy racist DEMOCRATS most certainly did. As did the rest of the DEMOCRAT South.
yeah and so did the black panthers like during the voter intimidation deal during 2008.
By "Americans"are you including liberals in that, because liberals arent really Americans but socialists posing as Americans. The rest of us have not lost sight of what America is or what shes become because of liberals!
... and with that, the entire center left of the political spectrum is cast aside as 'un-American' lol
So liberal Americans are not Americans?
Is this the basis for teen-mom's baby gramma Palins' "Real Americans" phrase?
Cause when we asked about it, everyone said Oh no no no no no...she didn't mean the only real Americans are righty's like her.....
Ooops, looks like she did...and you do too.
So listen, your salary is paid by the gvt....can I have my fake money back?
What utter claptrap.
Do you have separate passports for those who aren't of the extreme right?
No but we do have a place for liberals, GITMO, and a little waterboarding wouldn't hurt to remind them they are supposed to be Americans! Lol!
@ LadyLove LOL GITMO and a little aquatic sporting action like waterboarding may help them or at least amuse us haha....
That would be almost amusing if I didn't think you were serious.
Oh come on! Where's your sense of humor? I was only partly serious. Lol!
I am not being serious.....well I am for those who want to turn our nation into a socialist country....
Have you never thought,if America were turned into a socialist country it would have to be the will of the majority.
No way a handful of people could swing it and if it were the majority's wish, wouldn't you have to abide by it?
no I wouldnt abide by it......but then again I have seen war so whatever happens .....
You would need a super or supra-majority, I believe, to disolve the Constitution, not a simple majority.
Do you even know about our country?
We are not a democracy you know. Mob rule, 51%, doesn't cut it here.
I do know that it will not bend to the will of a handful of people.
Your statement that a supra majority would be needed backs up my claim that it would not be simple or easy to turn the US into a socialist country.
That is only the disolution of the Constitution route... it is not the only way. Matter of fact that way is the way the Left knows they cannot get it through, because most Americans would throw them out if they tried.
The subversive, Socialist Liberal Democrat/Secular Progressive Humanist agenda, that has been creeping incrementally throughout our Govt and Social Institutions for 90 years now, is a lot more insidious and fairly close to being accomplished.
Pretty soon, if Leftists and Progressives get their way, the riots will be here, (see Cloward and Piven, Van Jones, Black Panthers, LaRaza, and many others who are waiting with glee.), just like your homeland, and then with the continuous spouting of the class warfare and "they wanna kill your grandma and starve your children", rhetorict of the Leant Leftists, this country ought to be in flames and the change will forced to conclusion.
All in the name of the children and our own good.
Paranoia is a sad thing to see in a grown man!
A Socialist who doesn't believe the Capitalist staus quo can be over-thrown?... Or should be for that matter... is that how I am to take you?
I very much doubt if the capitalist status quo can be overthrown. Whether it should or not is a different matter.
Personally I liked the mixed economy that we had before the conservatives tore it down and sold it off to the lowest foreign bidder.
You do not like them, "foriegners", eh?
They ain't so bad when they come legally.
And the cultural Marxists agree with you, John.
It, the Capitalist system, cannot be forcibly over-thrown, it must be twisted, thus your mixed systems, and the long march through America's Social Institutions, to twist our youth and culture to accept Marxian philosophies.
Antonio Gramsci would be proud of you, John.
And leave the foriegners alone, it is bigoted and racist to pick on them. Or so I have been told.
Nothing against foreigners, but a little puzzled by the attitude that hates the man who comes to the country to better himself but loves the man who takes the country away to better himself.
I don't see anything wrong with a mixed economy, sure beats selling off vital systems to potential enemies. Nothing Marxist about that!
I do not mind anyone who comes here LEGALLY, john.
And taking this country back from the likes of Obama and the Socialist Liberal Democrats and Progressives, is what will save this nation.
How about us taking our country back from the French, Germans, the US etc.
I didn't tell you to give your country away.
And you can try taking this contitnent again any time you all want to.
Winner keeps the spoils... I do not play that civilized warfare shit.
That is one of the most ludicrous statements I have heard on the forums. And that is saying something. Wouldn't Americans be people living in America. People from all different spectrum's, religions, political affiliations, ethnicities, etc...
Yes we have.
But it has been stolen, not so much lost.
The agenda of the Frankfurt School, and the American Left and Progressives, has been to twist history to make America evil, to teach our children they are decendents of scum who oppressed the world, and to embrace a new and better system, Socialism, so as to right our past wrongs.
And it is working perfectly.
Yes it is. Divide and conquer is their goal. Without, of course, lifting a finger (except maybe the middle one).
Hey branda nice to see you hun. I will be back, hope your around to chat. Hope you have been well and doing good, and the lil ones also.
The US has never stood for free markets, they have weighted markets, aggressively dominated markets, put conditions on markets - and all in the joke of free trade.
The US has lost nothing except the economic power to bully everyone else, the resulting decrease in profits from such actions would hardly matter except that your politicians and financial institutions have stolen it all when there was excess and then you paid them when there was no profit to be had.
may I recomend that you read the Constituion......
It wouldn't matter, Lucas.
With all the BS re-defining of words and twisting of history, these fools today think the founders were Socialists, and that the Constiotution is a Socialist document.
What a joke this nation has become.
It is hard to imagine how you can twist and turn everything into the confusion you spout. The Constitution was drawn up by business men, traders, landowners and slave owners and the free people they saw were those like them, nothing like you, me, black people, or working people, or anyone else really.
Do you hate America? Are you anti-American?
yeah.. only Tea party members and their friends have read it
... or interpret parts differently than the Supreme Court, and then blame the Justices for being un-American
or let unAmericans appoint unAmerican Supreme Court judges. Sotomayor comes to mind. Obama goes without saying.
of course.. if they disagree with you.. they are un-American.
That is the state of discourse offered by the far right in the US these days.
You're right. We don't debate the value of liberal ideas being made into law, because they have no value; they're totally contrary to the laws of our land and the laws of God.
Notice I didn't say we don't debate the fact that liberals have the right to their views. But they should be exposed for the error they are. And even if liberals become the majority, that only means we should remain a Republic instead of a democracy. Because even if the majority of people become corrupt, our laws should still reflect the right views instead of the majority.
Has been for a looooong time Greek. At least since 2000.
well, it is, after all, just a "gd piece of toilet paper".....
I'll take presidents for $100 Alex, who is George Bush.
You kinda like him, don't you?
Europe is as much to blame for the failing world economy as America, if not more.
Nah, if riots happen, it will be because "we are not going to take it anymore"
You can only keep people down for so long...and this time, they have added the middle class......they are officially playing with fire.
tic toc, and ya don't stop...

"Nah, if riots happen, it will be because "we are not going to take it anymore"
---"Despite data collected by the Guardian showing a strong correlation between poverty and rioting, the government denied that its brutal austerity policies contributed to the desperation and rage of its young people. A researcher found that the majority of rioters who have appeared in court come from poor neighborhoods, 41 percent of them from the poorest in the country—and 66 percent from neighborhoods that have gotten poorer between 2007 and 2010.
The techniques that were roundly decried by Western leaders when used by Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak against his people’s peaceful revolution are suddenly embraced when it comes to unrest at home. Not only that, but techniques honed in the “war on terror” are now being turned on anti-austerity protesters, clamping down on discontent that was created in the first place by policies of the state."

Cuts and austerity lead to rioting...stealing people's savings will do it too. Taking and not giving is such bad form.
Better watch it....Ryan is making flood and hurricane aid contingent on cuts...they are all about austerity these Republibaggers...oh, of couse not for themselves!! Heaven forfend.
It's the same formula used over and over...and we are next.
Its brutal austerity measures... wait till we have to under-take those brutal measures here... then the Leftists will be crying about killing grandma and the children, and the class warfare BS will be spouted by mouths like van jones and piven, then the oppressors BS from farrakhan and his ilk... then the Left will take to the streets with violence, as they already do at most Union rallie, and cry about how they are so oppressed and need the Govt to care for them cradle to grave... they are entitled after all damn it!
What a joke.

Is it not hypocritical and contradictory to demand free markets when firstly the UK and then the US rose to world dominance in manufacturing with extremely protected markets?Even now those who shout loudest in favour of free markets don't really want them - they still really want protectionism.

I guess the Fed felt like it had no choice but to pull this latest giant intervention out of its butt at the 11th hour, but our national debt is twice what it was last year even without Fannie & Freddie included and now we're going to throw 85 BILLLION at this irresponsible insurance company...

Since it's beginning, America has been based on, "slavery, white supremacy and oligarchy ..."This understanding is just not true and the majority of the citizenry know it. How any individual or group of individuals think(s) they can get away with such HOGWASH is beyond me!!!!
