    What's Your America?

    What is a patriotic American I wonder?

    In this day and age there seems to be all kinds of Americans, liberal, conservative, left, right, Democrat, Republican, Independent, etc. What is a true American I'm wondering?

    Does a true American believe in the Constitution, Bill of Rights, Declaration of Independence and future of this great nation and their prodigy, or want to change it for a utopian world and society? Give up our individual sovereign national freedoms and way of life for a one world global bow to the crown existence? Is that American?

    Is it American to work your tail off to provide for you and your family, and by force of law, take what you earn in taxes and squander it for generational welfare or to foreign countries, both of which diminishes your ability to provide for your family?

    Does a patriotic American or government strive to remove the Pledge of Allegiance from all schools and public gatherings? Remove all vestiges of reverence to God in the class room and public gatherings? Strive to remove all semblance of Christmas displays public and private unless all inclusive? Is that the America your forefathers would be proud of and got killed and maimed fighting for? Are we growing to big for our own britches and need put in our place?

    I may be old fashion and out of touch with the political main stream but, I see our nation crumbling and going down the road to self destruction before my very own eyes. As said, “a house divided against itself can not stand”, and to me that says America.

    In the last 100 years of our national sovereignty, knowledge and technology has exponentially increased and wisdom and common sense has exponentially decreased by the same amount. A little more than 100 years ago the fastest a person could travel was about 35 M.P.H. by horse back, and look at where we are today. Thousands of years of humans evolving on planet earth, then all of a sudden in 100 years, an explosion of knowledge. Go figure, but I do know why.

    To name just a couple major recent historical changes in our society as reflected by law: A murderous rapist has more rights with the state than the victim and family of the deceased. The unborn have no legal or moral standing under U.S. Law and are disposed of as trash. Without naming specific crimes, hate laws have been passed for certain segments of society that makes us unequal in the eyes of the law. The government is calling good evil and evil good and calling for U.S. to embrace and celebrate it?

    At my old age I had the opportunity to talk to many grandfathers, great-grandfathers and old timers who served in World War II. If I were old enough to personally talk to veterans of WW I and all the other wars previously fought for our nation, I'm sure their opinions would be united. I don't believe they would say they lost a limb(s), life, eye sight, mental capacity or disfigurement for the America we are and are on the road to. We are self destructing and a moral mess.

    By a show of hands, how many of you respect the last measure of self your forefathers gave to preserve our way of life and want to preserve it, that of our great nation and our children's inheritance?

    Am I one of the last to believe in self respect, independence, self sufficiency, biblical morals, and free of government intrusion?

    Well said.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    This country is under attack from within. I hope we the people STOP falling for the traps, and unite and do the opposite of whatever the government proposes.. I'm frankly tired of this "NEW NORMAL" I believe that Americans will get tired of what is happening to our country sooner or later, and take it back. BUT we will not give an inch or comply with any gun laws. They dont work. ITs plain to see the government is playing us,and its intention is to take full control.. Im willing to do what it takes to get REAL America back, If someone can getit going, I will leave everything behind and fight for the old way of life..I've had it. And the media? Im about to take cable TV off and push for a boycott on comcast and all cable that provide false lying news channels that provide nothing but deception to the people because they are on Gvt payroll..

    Nice post btw

    You are not alone sir, not by a long shot. We are the silent majority I believe who would rather be left in peace and the pursuit of liberty while the others yammer for this or that with their hands outstretched for a free handout. Just leave us be and there won't be any trouble.

    As much as it makes me sick to my stomach, I believe peoples in my generation are the terminal generation. When we pass I do not see much hope for a moral national revival of our country, just the opposite.

    Wish I was not a "doom & gloom er" but, with each passing generation, look at where we are at!

    Remember the 40,'s, 50's. and 60's and the FCC regulations for TV not even showing Elvis from the waist down, and under penalty of law not saying "damn" on TV or radio? Now "F" bombs are all over the place in TV, cable and music. Seeing woman's **** and everything now on TV is as common as apple pie.

    If you were born and back in the 1950's as I was, and suddenly turned on the TV and saw the smut on there now... In 60 years, would you think that was a drastic change?

    Exploiting nudity, excessive blood curdling violence, a vulgarity with every other word is progress, acceptable and the norm... I'm old fashion and take exception.

    Mark my words! When my generation is gone the government public school pupils will take charge of our new liberal society and government without resistance.

    You're not alone. There are a lot of people who feel the same way you do.

    Well we are all fixing to get 11 million new voters instantly before long, and maybe more if the gates are closed slowly.
    The police are not there to protect you from crime, they are there to arrest the guy after the crime has been committed, assuming they find him. It is your responsibility to protect yourself and your family.

    I am well into my golden years and because of health problems and the housing slump I have lost pretty much everything. My savings were eaten up by out of pocket expense and the cost of moving to a cooler climate finished any hopes of easy street but there is one thing that can not be taken away and that is the love of my country and family and I will protect the from enemies both foreign and domestic.
