The Trashing of the Greatest Country on Earth
The US was founded in order to get rid of evil monarchs and give power to the people. Now the trend is in reverse.
I Have a Phone and a Pen
The US Revolution was fought to stop taxation without representation. In the US laws are supposed to be written by Congress, executed by the President and Litigated by the courts. Well, the Congress are the representatives of the people. When a president bypasses Congress, for any reason, they are saying that they are above the people. The difference between that attitude and the Dark Ages of evil ruling monarchs alludes me. It is once again, ruling without representation of the people.
Roe Versus Wade
Whether a person was for abortion or not, Roe vs. Wade was a travesty. First of all, similar to the above, the court system is not supposed to make law. Laws should be made by Congress which has representatives of the people. But secondarily, Roe versus Wade was based on 2 lies: That Ms. Roe was raped and her baby was to be aborted. Ms. Roe, Norma McCorvey, later said neither was true and that she had her baby and gave it up for adoption. Later Ms. Roe, Norma McCorvey, became pro life. Norma never had an abortion, not even this one, her third child. Regardless of which side of abortion you are on, the Roe v Wade decision is quite tongue and cheek and should bother real Americans. Where was the representation of American voters in the decision? There was none.
Burning of the Bill of Rights.
It is hard I think, for me to go a day without hearing someone in the media wanting to get rid of the bill of rights in some form. Sometimes it is a person who says Fox News or Rush Limbaugh should be off the air, an obvious infraction of the first amendment. Or perhaps it is Obamacare or our US schools stopping freedom of religion. The first amendment says we should have freedom of religion but also the US should not enforce a specific religious choice. Our schools break the bill of rights on two counts - first of all by not allowing Christian or Jewish comment in schools anymore, and some blocking websites of those faiths. It blocks it again by mostly forcing a choice of Atheism or Muslim at our children.
The second amendment is the right to bear arms, and yet it is constant how some people want that gone. Mexico has achieved what the liberals desire - a country where everyone can have a gun but law abiding citizens. Do you feel safe in Mexico? I no longer travel there, with huge concerns about drug cartels having taken it over and no citizens allowed to defend themselves. The problem with gun control is it takes guns away from the best people who are law abiding citizens, but does nothing to stop the biggest killers of all - government and the criminals.
And of course there is freedom from unreasonable search. The NSA and the IRS now make that freedom something of a joke. The US is in fact losing allies due to its unreasonable searches and still will not learn.
The Death of Civilization
As the left attacks capitalism, alias jobs, alias the people who make our food, our clothes, our goods, our houses, our energy civilization itself is at high risk. It does not take much of a genius to ask which countries have the highest grade of civilization. and which countries can still pay their own way. The answer is those with the most capitalism. Hollywood who hates capitalism never moves out, and neither do the others. They know they are liars. Capitalism is what pays down the US deficit, and gives money for politician salaries and also pays for things for the poor. Without capitalism, we go back to being hunters and gatherers, or just starve, as can be too often the case in third world countries.
