    Original message I am no longer proud to be an American.

    We Americans love to crow about how “great” America is. Certainly I was raised to be proud to be an American, but I no longer am. Why?

    There are more than 50 million Americans who are either unemployed or underemployed. Many of these same Americans and more have no medical coverage except for emergency care and they are afraid to get that because they know they can’t afford it and/or are too ashamed to ask for it. We are the only “advanced nation” in which basic health care is not a human right.

    We complain that we don’t have enough doctors, engineers, or scientists, so we hire people from other countries where they get their higher education paid for from the general fund, while our students must either come from rich families or they have to take on tens of thousands of dollars of debt to get a higher education. Meanwhile, we are graduating kids from high school who cannot read and understand a basic contract.
    We have millions of citizens who are homeless, many of whom are veterans like me.

    Millions of children (and many adults) do not have enough to eat.

    We spend more on so-called “defense” than the rest of the world combined, while too many of our citizens do not have their basic needs met. We, along with our “European friends” (and now our “Russian friends”), are the major producers and distributors of weapons to the rest of the world. Maybe if we were a better “friend and neighbor” to other countries we wouldn’t have to spend so much to “defend ourselves” against our “enemies”. I find it hard to believe they are merely “envious” of our “greatness”.

    Our Congress has become dysfunctional. Too many of our “representatives” are more concerned with kowtowing to their rich benefactors while saying whatever lies they can get away with to be reelected, rather than working to benefit their constituents or find solutions to America’s woes.

    Our Country’s infrastructure is rapidly declining. “No-brainer” jobs bills that would put people to work fixing this problem are not coming out of this dysfunctional Congress for political rather than economic reasons. Too many politicians would rather deny Evolution or the conclusions of climate scientists, reaffirm “In God We Trust”, name buildings and erect statues to Ronald Reagan than do their job.

    People in this Country are being pepper-sprayed, beaten with batons, and arrested for doing nothing but exercising their First Amendment rights.

    Unfortunately, there is a lot more I could add to this short rant, but I have to get ready for Thanksgiving. I don’t want to even get started on the need for paper ballots and fair elections.

    I would like to be proud to be an American again; but with these things going on, I fear I may never again be proud to be an American.

    Could be a Cred Thread by a new mole....:D:D
    May the FORCE be with you!

    what really amazes me more then anything,
    is how every Moonbat hates this nation, our political system,
    Capitalism and culture.

    Yet with all that,
    and threats to do so,
    none them have ever left
    this country.

    No exudus to Europe ...
    No escape to Asia ...
    Not even tripping across the border to Canada ...

    They haven't packed their bags ...
    Or even made a move towards the door ...

    Its time for them to sh*t , or get off the pot.
    Ten years of bitching long for anyone.

    What theses hollier then thou assholes really want is for things to be " Perfect " ; then no matter what, they can be disapointed, and pissed off all the time, and still blame everyone but themselves for the state of things.

    Liberalism Is The Philosophy Of The Stupid

    To Achieve Ordered Liberty You Must Have Moral Order As Well

    The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

    I am proud to be an American, there are just lots of reasons to be ashamed of some others.

    To the tune of "My Country Tis of Thee"

    My country's always wrong;
    This is the lib'ral's song:
    A pox on meeeeeeeeeee.

    Land where we should not be;
    We should have died at sea;
    There is no country worse than We;
    A pox on meeeee........
