It almost makes me cry when I think about how this country has gone down the tubes. I have always (and will always be) proud to be an American. How did Americans allow the liberal, socialists to take over and run this country into the ground?? Sadly, I think Obama and his policies is the begenning of the end of America. There will never be another place on earth like America was.

It was great while it lasted. We have turned out to be a disgraceful generation. We have gone from American Exceptionalism to a whiney culture that wants to be taken care of, by the nanny-states. One day we can tell our grandchildren what it was like to be a free people...

God bless America. May we have another 233 years.

I'm drunk, so please excuse the banter...

I cannot express the disdain I have for lib-tards that condemn America. The freedoms that they exercise in spitting on my flag and blaming my country for the world's ills are provided by the blood and sweat of the bravest people on earth: the men and women of the United States Armed Forces. If you think you can do it better, put on a vest and pick up a rifle, or move to another country where you would get your head cut off for speaking against the government.

RIP John Adams and Thomas Jefferson both former presidents, and founding fathers of this great nation.

It's a little known fact that these two men, good friends until death, both died on July 4th of the same year only hours apart.

Happy Birthday to a great republic!

What happened to the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence? What kind of men were they?
Have you ever wondered what happened to the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence?
1. Five signers were captured by the British as traitors, and tortured before they died.
2. Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned.

3. Two lost their sons serving in the Revolutionary Army; another had two sons captured.

4. Nine of the 56 fought and died from wounds or hardships of the Revolutionary War.

They signed and they pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor.

What kind of men were they?

1. Twenty-four were lawyers and jurists.

2. Eleven were merchants,

3. Nine were farmers and large plantation owners; men of means, well educated.

Still they signed the Declaration of Independence knowing full well that the penalty would be death if they were captured.

Carter Braxton of Virginia, a wealthy planter and trader, saw his ships swept from the seas by the British Navy and eventually sold his home and properties to pay his debts, and died in rags.

Thomas McKeam was forced to move his family almost constantly. He served in the Congress without pay, and his family was kept in hiding. His possessions were taken from him, and poverty was his reward.

Vandals or soldiers looted the properties of Dillery, Hall, Clymer, Walton, Gwinnett, Heyward, Ruttledge, and Middleton.

Thomas Nelson, Jr., lost his home to the British General Cornwallis for his headquarters. Nelson died bankrupt.

Francis Lewis had his home and properties destroyed. The enemy jailed his wife, and she died within a few months.

John Hart was driven from his wife's bedside as she was dying. Their 13 children fled for their lives. His fields and his gristmill were laid to waste. For more than a year he lived in forests and caves, returning home to find his wife dead and his children vanished.

So, take a few minutes while enjoying your 4th of July holiday and silently or not so silently thank these patriots. It's not much to ask for the price they paid.

Remember: freedom is never free!

Sun-Times columnist Richard Roper wrote he wasn't worried about the fall of the United States because it took Rome 400 years to fall. He said he wouldn't be around to worry about it.

Not only is the United States falling, the Sun-Times is gone.
The reason our country is falling at so fast a rate is the immediacy of information. Information is crammed down our throat via televisions and internet. We do not take time to digest the information. Instead we accept it as truth. A good example is the stock market run up in the 1990s. It didn't make sense. But, if you turned on MSNBC, CNN, and any channel that had a business report, you the viewer were informed that "this is the new economy" and everything would be alright.

If you want to blame anybody, don't blame the different races of this world. Blame the ultra-wealthy ruling class for our destruction. They controlled the media that shoved all the information you consumed right down your throat.

Thank you! Too bad our liberal educators don't teach or discuss this things in the class room like they did when I was a child.

Barry Obama supposedly is a professor of the Constitution. I don't think he gets it. He complains about the fact that the Constitution only talks in the negative (What the government can't do) and not as he calls it, the positive (what the government can do)like spend us into bankruptcy. Unfortunately for him, he has never experienced tyranny. However, I do find it somewhat comical that the word tyrant derives from Latin tyrannus meaning "illegitimate ruler". Hummmm!

God Bless the United States of America!

I am always weary of those who claim our country has gone down the tube. For years many have died for our freedom, so that we could petition our goverment for change. All those who talk of the failure of America must ask themselves "what am I doing to change x?" Are you just bitching and whinning or are you activily partisipating in our goverment (I.e. Campaigning, donating, talking with friends and family))? If your are not an agent of change then your just as guilty as these socialist and liberals. America is and will continue to be great. All we need is to stand up and speak our views.

On January 8th, the Huffington Post printed an article bitching about Obama saying it so MUCH. Maybe you haven't been listening.

Google the article. It's a good one, outlining the fact that, until Reagan, no one ever used that term in speeches. Not Washington, not Lincoln, not Jimmy Carter.

As the article goes on to say, Reagan began using it as a signal the speech was now over. That's not a stellar commendation for using that particular phrase.


By the way, this is one STELLAR country. We're very fortunate. Happy birthday to us - and many, many more...

Sorry, I didn't have enough free time to do all your fact-checking and resource location for you.

Type in the words Obama God bless America in a search engine and you will find the text of a number of his speeches, including the phrase you are so very concerned about.

As was said in another thread, have the good grace to admit when you're wrong.

Me, I don't care whether he says it in speeches or not. I think God gives us brains so we can go about BEING the change we'd like to see in the world. Be of some value to IMPROVING America instead of spending your time bitching about it.

The Declaration of Independence seems to have been written against Shortshanks.

"He has refused his assent to laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good."

"He has forbidden his governors to pass laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them."

"He has made judges dependent on his will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries." THIS MORE THAN ANY.

"He has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance." DEPT. OF REVENUE.

"For imposing taxes on us without our consent:" PARKING METERS, OLYMPICS INSURANCE.

"He has obstructed the administration of justice,"

Hitler didn't 'declare' the VW 'The People's Car.' VW didn't exist until Hitler created it. Hitler didn't 'take over' an existing car company, he created it and guided it himself, quite successfully. It was one of his personal projects. The name Volkswagen(folk wagon) itself means people's car. So Hitler was capable of promising something and then delivering it in a efficient manner...I wouldn't give Obama the same credit.

Obama isn't a fascist. Obama is a one world government communist. Obama is Stalin...and which wildly popular car did Stalin build that survives until this day as a successful company? That's right, none...he just destroyed. Fascists are nationalists, Obama is an internationalist. Fascists love and glorify, or at least pretend to, their national military. Obama despises our armed forces. Fascists believe in law and order, Obama believes in chaos. So call him what he is, a Bolshevik.

Do not despair. The Great American Experiment is far from over. In fact, the best is yet to come. Need proof?

Look to the dedication of our all-volunteer military. They sacrifice and serve selflessly in foreign lands fighting a determined enemy that wants nothing less that America's utter annihilation - not because of who we are, but because of what America stands for: freedom and equality. God bless our soldiers who gave all and those who now walk in their boots and honorably carry the flag and act as a beacon shedding light in the darkest corners of the world.

Though your candidate may not have prevailed, last year's presidential election was a testament to the American political process: vigorous debate, presidential and vice presidential candidates of various backgrounds running for office without discrimination, and a race that culminated in a peaceful transfer of power. As Americans, this is so commonplace that we take it for granted. In fact, however, from a world view, our political process is the exception, not the rule.

The entrepreneurial spirit of the American businessman continues to find a way to prevail (turn a profit while creating jobs and offering products and services of value) in spite of onerous taxation, regulation, and increasing foreign competition. We live in one of the freest markets in the world and, as consumers, benefit from the competition.

A little closer to home, we effectively police (homicides down 12.7%, all crime drops 10.4%) the most crime ridden areas of the city - because of our compensation? No, we haven't had a contract in two years (no contract raise in over three years - 01 July 2006). Because our mayor stands behind us and supports our efforts? Hardly. We're always but one public outcry away from becoming a sacrificial lamb on the mayor's political altar. No, we do the job because when the call went out, each and every one of us stepped forward and took the oath. Long live the sheepdog.

It's much too easy to become bogged down in the minutia of the unrestrained stream of negativity offered by the content-hungry media. Maintain perspective. Take the long view.

The best is yet to come. God (continue to) bless the United States.

I get around a lot. I travel, work,talk, and observe people in this country. Most are totally involved with celebrities, Obama, being one. I am sad to say that most people cannot see what's coming. They have no knowledge of history, and the way governments are formed. If they did they would understand that this country has the most perfect form of government possible.
It's being changed right before their very eyes, and they don't care. They think that it will all work out in the end. Once the working people are drained of their funds, the Party is Over.
After Obama's two terms, His Wife will run for president, and win.
16yrs. of that type of government will be enough to change this country forever. I am 61 yrs old. I am glad I got the chance to live and work in the greatess country ever created. What about You ???

I was in the 8th grade 45 years ago. We had to pass the Constitution test, really pass it, and also recite from memory the Gettysburg Address.

Today it would probably be enough if a student could even tell you what the Gettysburg Address was.

Most think it is a street address of a guy named Gettysburg.

11:05, I wish I could be as optimistic. Today's Americans live with their heads up their asses. They all want something for nothing. Under Clinton and Bush, they thought their homes were a source of free money. Today, the same assholes think Obama is Santa Claus and is going to give them free this and free that. We're fucked, because we've allowed ourselves to be dumbed down. Its over and guys like Axelrod and Obama know it. They're on the way to unlimited power over 300,000,000 jagoffs who are fascinated by pieces of shit like the pedophile Michael Jackson. Wake up.

"We're fucked, because we've allowed ourselves to be dumbed down."
