I like your post #9. What has not been taught in history classes for a VERY long time (because no one teaches history, anymore) is that, when the Founding Fathers wrote the Constitution and added the Bill of Rights, the fledgling nation of America was the laughingstock of the world.
At that time, the world was ruled primarily by, monarchs, dictators, tyrants, war lords, emporers, czars and kaisers. The people had little or no voice in what their government did, their only choice was to comply or face the consequences.
For just over 200 years, America was able to look at its foes and ask, “Still find us funny?” But, no more. The hatred of people like Obama and Soros and tyrants around the world for America, the bastion of freedom in the world, will finally get the last laugh.
I never believed that I would see this in my lifetime and am so ashamed of my country for allowing it!
The political battlefield in the USA has two hills, one Federal and one State. Yes, the socialist have taken the high ground on one of the hills. The other hill is up for grabs and IMO the more import if not overlooked for the last 150 years.
