Alright I have been lurking these boards for a bit. But I think it's time to put my foot down here in this topic. Some of the arguments here are
RIDICULOUS. For some reason, ATS has this fixation that whoever is making a profit is automatically a fake. If glenn has sky-rocketing ratings, and
bestselling books, then more power to him! What, you wouldn't do the same? You wouldn't love to speak your mind, write books, and get paid
handsomely for it? Ridiculous. This part of a post made me shiver:
one that is force-feeding the love of the American dream and capitalism
What? Capitalism is what made our country so great today, and the American dream is the best dream out there! Ask people from
other countries, poor countries, even people form european countries! I go to a very culturally diverse college, and many are sent here form overseas
with their last dollar. These people believe they are blessed to even have the opportunity to live in this great country!
Some are even taking stabs at him for going great lengths to garner huge ratings. Wow, so what do you want him to do? Not try to garner ratings?
Let his show flop? Jeez. Do I watch his show daily? No. Do i watch his show on occasion? Yes. And don't beat me with the
Conservative-Brainwashed Stick. I watch CNN, Fox News, and Independent Reports online. All alike. The best part is, I know not to take each source
seriously because I know there is a bias in all of them. If any of you watch his show, you would know that he rags on Dems and Repubs! He's a
constitutionalist, he believes in the foundations of this nation. He may side with the Repub party more often than not because they to support the
foundation of this nation far more than Progressives and Dems alike. And if there are people in this nation who believe the constitution is outdated,
lackluster, or needs improving, then please: move to Europe or Canada. you'll soon find out that they don't have it any better than we do, if not
I go into his show with an open mind, as I do with every media outlet. I will admit, he is a bit hokey, comedic, and ridiculous. If he can harness
his own common sense, and explain it in a simple comedic manner, then hey, more power to him! I always loved the classes in high-school where the
teacher was funny, yet still got the job done, who doesn't? And if you don't, well, then you're just plain boring. One episode he explained how
the Dems blame the Repubs for everything, and the Repubs blame the Dems for everything. He said that our nation's problems aren't going to be fixed
by parties, it can only be fixed by US! The people! Now which side is he taking then? The constitution's side! And that my friends, is a side we
as Americans should all stand by.
I belong to a fraternity at my college, and last night we were talking about paying off our college debts. One guy said "I don't need to work i'll
just pay it off with my Obama Money awwww yeahhhh!!!" I cringed, sighed, skipped a beat, and left the room. Horrendous, a person with his mind
entrenched in the idea that all will be given to him by the government. In his speech Glenn claimed he got where he was today by standing on his own
2 feet in that lonely single apartment. Lier or not, that is an inspiring story which may or may not be true for him, but is true for hundreds of
thousands of success stories across America. Coming from nothing to something through hard-work and dedication. Im convinced alot of people don't
even watch his show, or even this speech! They just write him off as a Fox News Whack Job. I am nor Repub or Dem, I find alot of Glenn Beck's ideas
great, I laugh with Colbert Report-Jon Stewart etc., and I can sit down and watch CNN. It's about taking all the information in, not just one side.
And from all angles, I can definately say that something IS wrong with this country and only WE can fix it. Not OBAMA not GLENN.
