The End Of An Era As America Becomes Socialist

Posted: December 9, 2012 at 4:56 a.m.

This is a wakeup call for our freedom that is being lost unless we stop the government’s present takeover of America. The greatest country in the world has succumbed to depending on government to control our freedom as we become a socialistic country.

It would be helpful if Robert Pearson could add a few facts and examples here and there.
How is the U.S. more socialistic now than in decades past?
What traditional moral values were established in the Declaration of Independence and U.S. Constitution?
Abortion was never mentioned in those documents and has now been legal in the U.S. for almost 40 years, through administrations both Republican and Democratic.
What exactly is the catastrophe that "is now happening"?

Your would-be joke has no substance, Moneymyst.
Definition, examples, evidence?
Comparisons with previous administrations, esp. 8 years of G.W. Bush?

At least you're not blaming Obama for Roe v. Wade that happened 40 years ago.

Nixon had nothing to do with Roe v. Wade--it was the Supreme Court.
You can't blame presidents for everything that happened on their watch, unless they were directly promoting it.
Bush pushed tax cuts at the same time he got us involved in two wars. Never before in our history did we cut taxes and conduct wars at the same time.
Wars cost money. Wars are the main reason for historical rises in .the national debt.
