Has America lost her way?

George Washington said that "America, under an efficient government, will be the most favorable country of any in the world for persons of industry and frugality". I sit here watching news shows talk of ever increasing government and taxes...change no one should believe in! Character is a combination of qualities or features that distinguishes a person but we have been told to look at someones style, the way they walk or talk. This past year, more value has been placed in how a person speaks that what he says . Words matter, character matters....Did those who voted for "change" really vote for more of their labor to be taxed? For government to grow and our freedoms to shrink? Our great nation was founded on Christian principles, this cannot be argued with, but when we are losing sight of that.
James Garfield said "Now more than ever the people are responsible for the character of their Congress. If that body be ignorant, reckless, and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness, and corruption. If it be intelligent, brave, and pure, it is because the people demand these high qualities to represent them in the national legislature. . . . [I]f the next centennial does not find us a great nation . . . it will be because those who represent the enterprise, the culture, and the morality of the nation do not aid in controlling the political forces. AMEN


  1. What Christian principles are you talking about? The ones that lie about war so we can kill civilians and destroy other countries without cause? Or maybe the one that places corporate profits above our own childrens health care? What this country needs to do is take a look in the mirror. 8 years ago Bush was handed a budget surplus. What did we get? War and busted economy! Do you think that America lost her way in the last 30 days? Fancy talk doesn't get us out of this mess, but it its a nice change!

  2. Thanks for reading, you just didn't read without an agenda evidently. All budget surpluses have always been "projected" and never real $, regardless of party. Bush was not a conservative, you don't abandon your principles for convenience or politics.
