Are America's days as a republic numbered numbered
Debate Rounds (3)
America has been under attack since the days of Franklin D. Roosevelt's election to the presidency and his "New Deal."
Communists in Americas government, its educational institutions, even its religious organizations.
The United Nations has only sped up America's demise.
Immigrants flooding America, diluting the voices of the countries citizens.
America has become a nation which borrows money from other nations and can no longer be independent because of its servitude to foreign nations.
America's youth are being taught to loath America and its history, everything about America, its founders and even the countries flag are held in contempt along with the American soldiers who fought in defense of America. Abraham Lincoln once said this about the end on America," If destruction be our lot we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen we must live through all time or die by suicide." Is America bent on committing "suicide," "Are America's days as a republic "
The citizens look around them at the conditions that prevail in this county and wonder if we are running out of time to govern ourselves or if America even has citizens of such a moral character as to be worthy of being placed in leadership positions.
The country has long been running on the foundations of principles laid down by our founding fathers but America's citizens have chosen their leaders without paying proper attention to what these leaders actually did in representing the people in the past,not what they claimed to be doing.
In the end, haven't the citizens of this country sank to such a level of turpitude that the leaders selected by them to represent them actually does represent the character of the citizens and they can't expect nor deserve any better than those they elect to office. " "We have met the enemy and he is us." Author unknown.
H.L. Mencken in his " NOTES on DEMOCRACY,"wrote this about the peoples representatives," Out of the muck of their swinishness the typical American law-maker emerges. he is a man who has lied and dissembled, and a man who has crawled. He knows the taste of boot-polish. He has suffered kicks in the tonneau of his pantaloons. He has taken orders from his superiors in knavery and he has wooed and flattered his inferiors in sense. His public life is an endless series of evasions and false pretences. He is willing to embrace any issue, however idiotic, that will get him votes and he is willing to sacrifice any principle, however sound, that will lose them for him....." Isn't this why""America's days as a republic....are.... numbered. Is America going to be like Babylon in the Bible...... Are we there now?
Con posted,"America will not fall apart any time soon. Now yes in the recent years we have had bad leader after bad leader but dose that mean we are doomed? I can answer that question and I think no..."
Lookingattheissues response: What is one of the major reasons a business fails and has to close its doors, it is because of bad management making bad decisions relating to the running of that business, a country under a series of bad management decisions will experience the same disastrous results.
Like any malignancy, bad presidents and bad representatives leads to the death of a nation. The prognosis for the nation can only be that it will only be a matter of time before the patient succumbs to the the lack of good management and treatment of the malady effecting the body. America's malignancy which can only lead to its demise as a republic is that the citizens have been too complacent and too excepting of those who they elected and were, in all too many cases, too busy running their own lives to involve themselves in the affairs of government. Oh, the American citizens may have complained amongst themselves at different times about the way government officials were managing the countries business but were willing to accept some minor attacks on their lives/ freedoms, figuring that they, as individuals, were too insignificant to effect any changes in the way the country was going and resigned themselves with the thoughts, "well, tomorrow, things will correct themselves when we elect new leaders to run the government and all will be well in the end.
But those new leaders chosen by the people have only built upon the progressive failed policies put in place by past leaders only hastening the countries inevitable collapse.
America's elite who are ensconced in positions of power in this country, such as America;s media, Education, its courts, and in Hollywood, have indoctrinated its citizens from the cradle to the grave with their leftist propagandizing to the point that the citizens now exhibit a hatred for their own country and this " learned," indoctrination has led to hatred of America's flag, its traditions, religion,and its history. A distinguished French writer, Jean Fraancois Revel wrote this about a countries citizens who loathed their country, he said this, " Clearly, a civilization that feels guilty for everything it is and does will lacjk the energy and conviction to defend itself."
How long can a country survive when its citizens don't respect nor love their own country but instead loath it, and they long for the day when the government will be subverted and the Camelot, that comunists promised, will become a reality right here in America.
