What has America become ?
Has America become the land of the special interest and home of the double standard ?
Let us see : If we lie to the Congress , it 's a felony and if the congress lies to us its just
politics ; if we dislike a black person , we're racist and if a black dislikes whites its their 1st
amendment right ; the government spends millions to rehabilitate criminals and they do almost
nothing for the victims : in public schools you can teach homosexuality is Ok , but you had
better not use the word God in the process , you can kill an unborn child , but it is wrong to
execute a mass murderer, we dont burn books in America , we now re write them ; we got rid
of the communist and socialist threat by renaming them progressives ; we are unable to close
our border with Mexico but have no problem protecting the 38th parallel in Korea ; if you protest
against President Obama's policies you are a terrorist, but if you burned an American flag or
George Bush in effigy it was your first amendment right . You can have pornography on TV or
the internet , but you better not put a nativity scence in a public park during Christmas ; we have
eliminated all criminals in America , they are now called sick people ; we can use a human fetus
for medical research but it is wrong to use an animal . We take money from those who work hard
for it and give it to those who don't want to work ; we all support the Constitution , but only when
it supports our political ideology ; we still have freedom of speech but only if we are being politically
correct ; parenting has been replaced with Ritalin and video games ; the land of opportunity is now
the land of hand outs ;the similarity between Hurricane Katrina and the gulf oil spill is that neither
president did anything to help .
And how do we handle a major crisis today ? the government appoints a commitee to determine
who's at fault then threatens them , passes a law , raises our taxes ; tells us the problem is solved
so they can get back to their re election campaign .
What has happened to the land of the free and the home of the brave ?
