Default What is happening to our Country?

These swamp dwellers in DC are trying to implement some of the most draconian laws we have ever seen on the Republic.Asset forfeitures without a trial, and now sending someone to prison for boycotting Israel! Our freedoms are fast leaving us.How have we allowed ourselves to get to this?

I don't think of myself as a staunch Republican or Democrat.
I am a Christian and a Conservative...........In that order!

In regards to the US it can be attributed to the rising political influence of the radical religious element. For them this is not a matter of law or diplomacy it has been made an act of faith. They believe that because of the historical significance of the Holy Land Israel should be above criticism. They forget that they were elected to serve the interests of the USA not of Israel.

Make sure brain is engaged BEFORE putting mouth in gear.

What has happened to our country? ..In a word, LIBERALISM (which is not at all liberal).

"Politically correct" language, is really Orwellian 'newspeak'. (Michael Cutler)

Political correctness!! Lowering our standards to the lowest common denominator. We are not the country, although we could be, that put a man on the moon. We use to set our levels to achieve, not lower them so that IQ and physical requirements could be met by inferiors. It's showing up today, after 30+ years. Trump will be our last hope. If that's even going to be enough. The political forces against him are global, not national, and this country is headed towards a Venezuela type situation in 20 years if not changed. gypsyman

We keep trying peace, it usually doesn't work!! Remember(12/7/41)(9/11/01) gypsyman

Unhappy there are really

too many factors to go into detail here. but to name just a few of those factors:

getting farther and farther away from God.

political correctness ideology

racial relations becoming worse instead of better

the wealthy vs the poor

ILLEGAL immigration

health care has become a "right"

abortion has become a "badge of honor" to the left under the guise of being a woman's "right"

those are just a few...it's a complete study if one wishes to pursue it.

today's youth are more concerned about their smart phones and going out to lunch/dinner than what's in store for them if more states continue like the state of California...where"Freedom" is becoming a word in the dictionary.

in short...it's a mess!

lead, follow, or get out of the way!

I agree pretty much completely with dcw but wish to add a couple comments.

Nothing more than "Liberal censorship"

racial relations becoming worse instead of better
Race relations were becoming quite tranquil, until Obama used the power of the oval office stir up rancor and hatred.

the wealthy vs the poor

ILLEGAL immigration
..And those Americans who are helping the lawbreakers to break the law !

health care has become a "right"
.A "right" for the government to fleece the working people even more

abortion has become a "badge of honor" to the left under the guise of being a woman's "right"
....And they seem to be oblivious to the fact that fully half of those murdered in abortion mills are women

those are just a few...it's a complete study if one wishes to pursue it.

today's youth are more concerned about their smart phones and going out to lunch/dinner than what's in store for them if more states continue like the state of California...where"Freedom" is becoming a word in the dictionary.

"getting farther and farther away from God."

It is great that you placed this first, all other problems stem from it.

Come quickly, Lord Jesus

The whole fabric of the country on every issue is being set up to build a huge powder keg. This is a Biblical technique employed through the ages, and we have seen it in color revolutions and same technique used by the various intel agencies to destroy a country. Build a powder keg, light the fuse and let it blow. Then move in and take over. Presently to light the fuse would be starting a war with Russia. And Trump would be a fool to sign that H-722 war bill, but for some reason he said he would sign it.

The chance of that passing is zero to none, but it will make obvious, if it comes to a vote, to Jews which side their politicians are on; that is the only reason it exists , no more white man speaking with forked tongue.


I am sure Muslims are against it.
