How Have We Become a Nation of Dumbies?
FreedomFriend | 10/21/01 | Freedom Friend

Posted on 10/21/2001 12:54:14 PM PDT by FreedomFriend

I'm posting this topic in an effort to try to get a grip on the insanity that plagues this country. Generally speaking, I know the reasons, but it is without logic why our country continues to spiral out of control towards oblivion in regards to political, social, and cultural traits. Thus, without further ado, I will try to explain some of the many examples.

In regard to politics, how can our politicians continue to promote policies that expand government control. Furthermore, how can they neglect to get involved in those areas that are constitutionally given? Not only that, but how can some politicians promote the elimination of various examples of American Rights and, or, Freedoms?

For example, how can our federal government neglect to protect our borders? They do this through their underfunding of the border patrol; a unit of a mere 7000 agents, whereas the NYC police has roughly 30,000 cops. Meanwhile, illegal aliens, non-assimilating individuals, enemies of America, drugs, etc. continue to easily "break-through" our borders. As a result, our culture is under constant attack and is continuously broken down. Not only that, but how can the government, under the guise of public schools, continue to promote an insane mantra known as "Multiculturalism" and "Diversity" despite the known damaging effects and divisionary tactics that have been proven throughout history? How can many of our politicians push for gun control, the destruction of the family unit through Homosexual marriage, benefits, etc, and the elimination of free speech through hate crimes legislation? How can our government be so in-line with what the liberal, socialist elite say and believe? For example, it appears that our policies align themselves up with what the media says, though it is on a ten year delay. How can all of these things be happening to such a great country, though the majority of individuals, deep-down, resent it?

As it appears, there is no "We the People". The people have so little say. It is the socialist elite throughout the media, the government, and the Universities that dictate nearly the entire direction of this country; a bleak one. If good, moral men speak up, the media silences them through the slandering of their names. If good men with GREAT ideas run for public office, many of the campaign contributers, aka big business, will not back them. Thus, they cannot get their views out to the people in comparison to the frontleaders who merely stand for the status-quo; that is, a continuation of socialism and the elimination of freedoms, morals, decency, etc. As it stands, it appears that the government, the media, the schools/universities, and big business (to less of an extent) has been sabotaged by people who hate traditional America and true Americanism.

I often think about the state of things. I wonder why many honorable businesses, organizations, etc. do not put their money together and purchase various thought-disseminating institutions such as networks, newspapers, etc. It simply doesn't make sense. Unless the haters of America do not want to sell, are there really too few financially-rich individuals who have America's best interests at heart, instead caring about how they are perceived or their financial assets?

Are there really too few individuals in congress to speak up for what's right? That is, the Constitution, honor, values, morals, Freedom, etc. I don't get it. Why don't some of our House and Senate members speak with angst on the House and Senate floors? Why don't they set the record straight and come out against the enemies of America by telling the American people what is going on, or by showing some emotion towards American haters in our own government?

As it stands, it appears that all it'd take would be for some honorable, dutiful men to occupy our government. Even the ones who are on our side often do not look like it. With God-fearing, Constitution loving men, we could stop the slide and reverse the trend. However, we're not doing nor seeing that. I only can pray that things change.

Good Post Freedom Friend. Also Good Post Zordas. I get flamed, pummeled, laughed at, mocked, ridiculed...and what ever else you would like to throw in, but I don't need to be thick skinned, I don't want to harden my heart to people. If that were the case then Christ would not have said, "Forgive them Father for they know not what they do." His pain was genuine and not a pain you could harden yourself to. I believe in what I say, and I will not move from what I believe. I don't hide behind a fake name so that I may show a nature which is one I would not show if everyone knew who I really am. And I would go face to face and toe to toe with anyone here. BUT I would also open my door and feed them if they were hungry and clothe them if they were cold, and love them if they were hurt. AND NOT back off of what I believe nor shut my mouth!!

Okay, I'm 24 years old. I graduated summa cum laude from Georgia State University. However, it's worthless, I presume? It doesn't mean anything that I practically spent all of my time reading in the University library. I misspell one word and all of a sudden I'm stupid, a product of the public schools. You've never misspelled a word? However, despite that, this topic barely gets any real discussion. I continue to see hundreds of posts on Anthrax. I mean, how many posts can we have on Anthrax? I want to see action, thus I decided to posts on troubling examples of reality. It was a goal of generating discussion in an effort to bring about ideas that could be used to implement a plan of action. You see, I've felt that we need good men to occupy the ranks. However, I've seen very few. Therefore, I'm seriously considering entering the political system.

It's a shame that the "misspelling" of one word is more important than a topic of concern.

How Have We Become a Nation of Dumbies?

Well, I admit I HAVE noticed a decline in the collective ability to spell even fairly simple words, like "Dummies".

Next up, we debate the topic "Have We Become A Nation Of Gumbies?"

One needs only at the misspelled "dummies" (your "dumbies") to determine how it happened.

We've already given 68-69 a bunch of krap on that, cote. Yatch is truly a word meaning "yacht." We do believe he had been imbibing on the evening he chose his screen name.
