Re: Greatest threat to America?

Its scary how f'n blind people are..keep drinking your soy latte and reading US weekly...There are different levels of mediocrity...but no exceptionalism...I think most everybody here is a good American and in that light we rip each other apart at times but its because we try to force each other to grow or at least be aware.

Great post!

Re: Greatest threat to America?

This guy is right on. I was at an event last night, the Star Spangled Banner was starting and I was at the food stand waiting for some food......I turned around removed my hat and faced the American Flag......even when my food came to the pick-up window and my wife tried to get my attention......I simply turned my head and said " wait a minute!" I kept my attention towards the Flag.....however there was a douche waiting for his food as well.....He didn't turn to the flag.....he didn't take his hat off either....it made my blood boil.....maybe I do or do not know what it really means to be American but, I'm certain more and more people are losing touch with the country that still provides them with many freedoms, and they still stand there and disrespect it.

My wife graduated college and we had the ceremony this past Thursday. There were several "boo's" and plenty of people talking / cutting up when the national anthem was played. There were about 4k in attendance and those standing at attention with their hand on their heart were definately the minority.

Greatest threat to America?

Extremism and intolerance.

Never have so many politicians, screwed so many Americans...just to make one black person lose his job.

I think centrists have done just as much damage as either of these. They have flown under the radar for 100 years allowing presidents like Bush and Obama to spend at will.

Never doing anything extreme the centrists have allowed the majority of America to sleep while we move further and further away from the Constitution and more and more towards socialism.

I wholly disagree.

"Checks and balances"............is the cornerstone of our success.

It has been the constant tug toward the middle, against those who would prefer to spin it off to the far edges (on both sides), that has allowed this country to become the best this planet has ever seen....IMHO.
