Attack me if you will.
Yes, yes - check my profile - I am indeed presently living abroad for work but I have always been a flag-waving American.
At the moment some members of this august forum - which I have adored for many years, long before I was "golux" - believe Sarah can beat Hillary... Believe America will come to its senses on homosexual everything... Believe there will be some "push back," believe that for the first time in history (well, sine Appomatox) the Federal government will stop expending exponentially... Believe that Career Congresscritters will once again deign to "represent" their constituents... Believe that our Moslem president and his minions at the Church of Anthropogenic Global Warming can somehow use their out-of-control, unaccountable spy agencies to audit conservatives into regaining, for America, some miniscule thread of respect in this world... Believe that if we try - if we really try - hard enough to teach our kids how to F each other up the A in grade school and on Sesame Street, then Americans might have jobs and hope again.
But I'm just not seeing it. I really do believe that our country is sick. Mortally sick.
Yep, I've read Gibbon's The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire. You should too. It'll take you many months, but it's worth doing. The similarities are uncanny. Shockingly so.
I guess I still love America and that for which she "stood." I have sacrificed much for my patriotism as so many of us have - and I have been blessed by our wonderful society. I love America. I LOVE America.
But the Founders' message is real. Ayn Rand's message is real. The LORD and His Commandments are real. I am not a Christian, but if America were a Church (in my case a synagogue,) I'd leave it.
If the RNC were a Church I would leave it.
I have a family. I am afraid for my children's brains, their sexuality, their knowledge of good and evil, their morality. I have lived in many places and can assure you ours is no longer the land of the free.
I am tired of arguing with European (Jews, mainly) about how America isn't crime-ridden, filled with bums and fags and pedophiles and drug addicts and perverted teachers and communists and obese, immoral, undereducated welfare zombies.
America is. We are. After 9/11 we elected a freakin' guy named (probably) Barack Hussein Obama, about whom we know less than nothing. We did this. Is Satan in charge of America?
Tonight I told the Aesop fable about the dog and the wolf to my kids. I love to draw these stories out with details, sounds, et cetera.
For the first time I realized I was being a hypocrite comparing Americans to the wild, free wolf rather than the enslaved, fat, stupid dog, and it choked me up.
My hope is dead. Even a revolution seems impossible. We have traded all of our liberties for safety, and delight in the process, sucking on Soma and flocking to Wal Mart for more American flag decals stamped by Chinese preteens.
But what to do? Where to go?
I love Free Republic. Would there were one.
Poland also has a very low number of muslim filth.
Let me rephrase that: All conservatives move to Texas and make the libs that live there so uncomfortable that they leave and move out. They are mostly in Austin, so move there.
Yes, Russia has taken the words of Solzhenitsyn to heart since the Soviet Union crumbled.
Unfortunately, the West hasn’t.
I love that story except for the fact that with a finite numbers of years of being found all but one was dead.
A lot of good that did last night.
Poland is good, but the language is difficult and the climate sucks. I looked into Italy, but they have a global asset tax as of last year and heavily armed, aggressive “Guarda Finanza” (Tax SWAT teams.)
I have not lived in the USA for 20 years, moved out when Clinton won. Haven’t been back since except for visits.
I didn’t leave America, America left me (and us.)
You cannot live in an American city the size of mine and walk the streets at night unarmed like I and my children do.
It’s about to get worse. A lot worse.
One has to be optimistic nowadays or why bother staying around? Plus I like coats.
I thought I saw pictures of him in a church, blessing himself with holy water. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing.
Maybe I’m thinking of someone else.
You had me until you listed Jews as part of your problem ... are you really as hair brained as that ?
Most of those are Tartars who have been their for centuries, and pretty much keep to themselves.
Where does one go when one doesn’t want to be an American anymore?....Renegade. Think about it.
I pray that some of the states can secede and we all like minded people can move there. I’m so sick of all this and sick of our side never getting a break.
I told my husband I keep picturing a toilet being flushed, and our country in the middle of it.
Yah, if you dislike freedom, Russia should be at the top of anyone’s list . . . but hey, it’s an (allegedly) Christian nation.
It's those darn cases. Actually once you learn the basics, it's a fairly easy language to read...speaking it is a whole other matter.
Agree with you.
As US becomes more and more socialist and authoritarian, then it is just a matter of picking the best of like countries.
or the White House Staff.
Amen. Let me know if you find one.
“”Where does one go when one doesnt want to be an American anymore?”
I vote that answer to be the greatest response of the week. Maybe even month.
You sly red-dawg, you.
