Where have all our freedoms gone?

June 14, 2014

As with our Memorial Day and Fourth of July Independence Day and our Veterans Day in November, I ask what is our Declaration of Independence and our Constitution and Bill of Rights? And what is......

Who would have thought twenty years ago that we'd see thousands of cameras being installed to spy on its citizens? Who would have thought that such monstrosities as Patriot Acts I and II would ever become law. Who would have thought that the government could force parents to drug their own children with dangerous substances? Should this be a surprise in a nation of moral debauchery? Who would have thought that a day would come when two men could legally become married in America and adopt children? Who would have thought that little children would be aborted (murdered) by the millions in a nation which God has blessed so mightily? Our founding fathers would have cardiac arrests if they could see the mess we've gotten ourselves into as a nation. We have become complacent and weakened as a nation. Who would have thought that our own government would steal our land and give it away? How many people understand that 68% of our national parks and

What we need to do is realize that our political leaders have led and we willing followed. In my humble opinion: We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We ridiculed the absolute truth of the lord and called it Pluralism. We exploited the poor and named it the lottery. We rewarded laziness and called it welfare. We killed our unborn and called it choice. We shot abortionists and called it justifiable. We neglected to discipline our children and called it building self-esteem. We abused power and called it politics. We coveted our neighbor's possessions and called it ambition. We polluted the air with profanity and *********** and called it freedom of expression. We ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment.

Obama/dems using OUR tax dollars to 'buy' votes and cooperation in their socialist endeavours in this nation. State governors are selling their states out for federal dollars. Bribery is rampant under this administration. Intimidation is rampant under Obama administration. And too many governors, senators, reps are willingly giving up states rights for a little printed federal dollars. They're selling their souls for the almighty dollar and dragging this country down without any guilt whatsoever. Honesty and common sense are the two things very rare today.

The younger generation voted for selfish reasons, 'believing' a lying politician and are now reaping their stupid mistake. It's too bad folks have lost the art of THINKING before doing!

Democrats in less than 6 years have destroyed jobs, businesses, education, infrastructure and put our nation at great risk of another attack from our terrorist enemies. Democrats destroy everything they touch because THEY are out of touch with reality and continue to show no signs of any common sense whatsoever.

I'll tell you where our right went. They were traded for government assistance, reparations and entitlement programs. The last two generation of children hold no regard for the Constitution, the Bill of Rights or even their own heritage. They couldn't care less that the left has been stealing elections, building a support base from graveyards across America, and the votes of illegal aliens. All that's on their minds are the pleasures of life, drugs and whatever the government can give them. They have no pride, no remorse for what they do, no honor, no sense of morals, and no sense of right and wrong. Their entire lives revolves around me, me, me, never giving a thought to the consequences of their actions. They have no idea what they've given up, or how many people died giving them the freedom they think so little of. The welfare system and liberalized public school systems are mainly responsible. That's it in a nutshell.
