ain't what she used to be by Satansgoalie ain't what she used to be by Satansgoalie
the older i get, the more i realize that the country i was taught about as a child does not exist. it was just the idealized version of what we thought we were living in.
in my opinion, america as defined in the constitution is really just an idea. an idea waiting to be reborn.

like this design? want it on a shirt or maybe a mouse pad? well, you can get one here:

Yea, well President Washington warned us to never become involved with the Euro-trash heap of self appointed rulers. That they would entangle and then destroy our nation. UN Agenda 21 for example. It's all smoke and mirrors by the globalists. First thing we need to do is get rid of corporate control over the media, then get rid of both political parties, and then send the seals to off the boys and girls of the Club of Rome and all the other self appoint crime lords.

Well said Indeed! My experience as well, I was actually talking about that very thing with my mom over the weekend. People when in conversation in public, work, neighbors & friends & they or you put forth what you say as Fact, Do 1 thing. Ask where they got or heard the Information. (Never did this growing up & found out pretty much All I knew was B/S) My experience is, the person your talking with 1st gets defensive then angry, b/c Ego kicks in & they feel your questioning them. But explain why, b/c thats how we spread info growing up & accept as general fact & it needs 2 stop! Litteraly Everything socially and politically on Majority side I grew up knowing, was infact Disinfo or outright lies! Not blaming the messenger, but they had NO way really of checking it before relating it to others! If anything, This I do, just my 2cents!

Since none listen to what Obama said he was going to do but see he has done NOTHING of what he said he would this is no doubt so true.

I always knew they left out some fine print after, "You can be anything you want to be in this country!" that reads someting like this: As long as you have the money to pay for the education and the connections to get the job... If not, well then you're screwed. Have a crappy life low class!

You can be anything you want to be, if you work for it. You have the right to pursue happiness, whatever that may be. If it's something you really enjoy, it might be illegle or imoral. This is still the greatest country ever. God Bless the United States of America

God's got nothing to do with why a country's great or not. It's the people's responsibility alone, and right now we've dropped the ball.

I'm going to have to disagree. It was Chritian faith that this great country was founded on. We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator(GOD) with certain unalienable right, that among those are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Thomas Jefferson. It's because the people have taken GOD out of the schools and classrooms and further distancing from GOD has created the so called ball to be dropped.

So, God has nothing to do with Christianity... just so you know. You quoted things that mention GOD which in know way says Christianity. And... Thomas Jefferson was a Deist not a Christian (he rejected the divinity of Jesus Christ) along with most of our founding fathers, some were also atheists. "Endowed by their creator" was worded specifically to entail all religious beliefs, not a Christian perspective. It doesn't say "they are endowed by their Lord Jesus Christ..."

Please, I do not mean to come off as rude, but do your research before blurting out nonsense like this.

Oh lawd. That tired old claim is more full of shit than a port-a-potty at Oktoberfest.
