I propose the US has been encouraged to sink into oblivion so as to seduce the people into accepting rule from some world government organization.
The US is shrinking in power and prestige. Everything being done only exacerbates the problem.....You want to tell me that the decline is an
accident? The people will not wake up until we are goose stepping down Lenin street in the newly named city of Commytown, formerly known as
After 50 years of anti communist brainwashing it must be dificult to let it go. That's why so many americans see reds everywhere. You are so fearful
of the communists that you are creating a fascist system that mussolini would be proud of. Except your trains don't run on time and you are neither
safe nor free.

You equate greatness with power and talk about 'our place'. What is it with you Yanks. You are so focused on being 'number one', feeling that it
is your birthright, that you don't seem to notice what the empire is costing you. Did you ever hear the term 'A Pyrrhic victory'?
The US has never been stronger, it is unchallenged militarily and yet it is bogged down in two wars against people hiding in caves. It is economically
stronger than any other nation on this earth and yet it can't provide basic healthcare for all it's citizens and is consistently rated mediocre on
every important measure. Infant mortality, equality in the workplace, literacy, scientific understanding, quality of life, happiness...

This Yank doesn't care about leading the world. I care about leading our Nation. Some of us think that American Exceptionalism means that we must
exercise our military and economic might abroad, yet some of us think we can lead by example. America does not have a birthright to rule the world
anymore than anyone else does. I care, certainly, about what the world thinks of us. When my family and I came to America it was freedom that called
to us. Not militarism, not economic manipulation.
America means a lot to me. I know no other place I'd rather be and I will fight for Her. HOWEVER, this does not mean I have to swallow my
governments' crap, and it certainly does not mean that my idea of American Exceptionalism is the norm. To the critics, if you help us
Constitutionalists out a little then maybe we can be the ideal we set out to be. Before you do that, however, clean out your closet too.
