Posted on 08/19/2012 10:53:44 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Recently, Americans across this nation finally stood in defiance against radical leftists and homosexual baiters to support Chick-Fil-A CEO Dan Cathy, traditional marriage, and free speech. Was this an isolated event, or an indication that Americans have finally reached the tipping point where they will actively begin to take America back?
For decades, Americans have been brainwashed and browbeaten by radical left/progressive/liberal/socialist/elitists, with the end goal of making us behave according to their rules. Children have been taught politically-correct conduct and speech in the indoctrination centers called public schools. Words have been twisted to have different meanings. People of all ages have been shamed into behavior and speech deemed acceptable to radical leftists. Rules for common courtesy and respect for one another's beliefs have been changed, while laws have been written making it a crime to have some personal beliefs and to speak-out about them. Yes, freedom of speech has been attacked in a major way but perhaps Americans are finally fed-up with all the gobble-de-goop leftists have been dishing-out.
Multitudes of Americans have been perplexed about the societal changes that have happened since the 1950's. A majority of us have believed that someone, somehow, and some way would stop the dangerous course our nation seems to be taking. Unfortunately, we entrusted the responsibility of protecting our rights and freedoms to elected officials. And actually, this is the job these folks are supposed to do, at least at the national level protect and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. But as we know all too well, we didn't do enough vetting of candidates for these elected offices. Sadly, we began to think that promises meant more than a person's character or ideology...

Yes, we have definitely reached the tipping point.
America is GOING to tip - it cannot be avoided.
WHICH WAY, however, is still undetermined.
But it WILL happen.
I’d hate to think the Chick-Fil-A heterophobic left BS was the final tipping point.
There’s far greater issues that should have woken up America to the Liberal, Progressive, Socialist agenda.
My son-in-law (who is a black american) told me last night, he is voting for Romney.
You know what did it for him? The amnesty deal BO is giving to illegal aliens. He is disgusted that Barry is giving jobs to illegals, while ignoring the unemployment of the black community.
That’s nice of your son in law but his issue is still only with blacks.
There are a hundred good non-racist reasons to not support Obama.
Every Christian in America is familiar with the promise stated in 2 Chronicles 7:14: “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
In God we trust to restore and heal our Nation.
Yes, it is going to tip. It’s time.
I would respectfully submit that the tipping point was US v. Miller, 1934.
And we lost that by not showing up.
I think the tipping point for Romney is the horrible, mud-slinging Dem campaign, as well as the “You didn’t build that” speech.
When even my head-in-the-sand conservative mother ate at Chick-fil-A in solidarity, I have to believe that people are finally waking up. I pray so.
I understand your sentiment. The "hate crimes" amendment to "protect" homosexuals should have been the call to arms, as should this profligate "president's" war against marriage.
