There was a time when people assumed that if America’s future was under attack, it must come from a foreign source–like, say, Japan at Pearl Harbor. Those days are long gone. Now, our decline is no one’s fault but our own. We elect leaders who are ignorant of America’s history and contemptuous of its values. The currency in which this ignorance and contempt is expressed is government spending. I am not sure I can fully explain the logic, but those who are filled with hatred for the first 200 years of American history want–for some reason–America’s government to accumulate ever more power and to spend unprecedented amounts of money. Does that make sense? Seemingly not, but it is the world in which we live: the entity that is most bent on destroying the private economy of the United States of America, until recently the envy of the world, is our own government.

This condemnation applies in equal measure to the Democrat Party, which created the mess; and the Republican Party, which enabled it.

It is not just money.

The US Congress and Obama have given 20,000 MANPADS
to al Qaeda to kill Americans in civilian airplanes
for Obama and the DNCs and RINOs.

No one in DC cares about Americas in the homeland.

No one.

No one.

Death to Amerikka

Debt to Amerikka

It's been downhill ever since the commies openly denied God in the 60's.

I've said before. History will not treat The Obama Years kindly. Bill Clinton didn't do as much damage to the republic as this guy has.

Yes, and ultimately the American people who allowed both parties to achieve the mess.

There’s no question that America’s major enemies are the evil Obama regime and the millions of loafers who depend on the central socialist government for their livelihood.

It makes perfect sense if you understand the motive: revenge, and power.
The blacks want revenge, 400+ years of white slavery if they can achieve it.
The poor want revenge.
The college kids want revenge on the well to do simply because they have been told that is what is needed.
The unions want revenge on Wisconsin and Michigan and Ohio, and more power.

I want justice because I have had to put-up-with, be-exposed-to, deal-with and tolerate all this anti-American, commie BS much of my life. Justice.

If insurrection and revolution does not occur in the next four yeares, and I live, and FR is still around, I will not be posting nor reading ... because I will be a shamed man due to inactivity and failure to pledge my life.

What good are words?
