    No, I need an answer as to how some political speeches, a few country music entertainers and some donations to a charity, will restore honor to America.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Why do Cons have to insist that our Founding Fathers wanted a theocracy?

    They were running away from religious persecution, why would they want to start another government dictated by religion.

    They clearly stated that they did not want that in the Treaty at Tripoly.

    I believe in God, but I don't believe on mandating what I consider wrong because of my religion to others of a different religion. Neither do I support withholding of Constitutional rights to other tax-paying Americans just because they believe differently.
    History supports my position but if you want to start another thread then do so. Like far too many it is FREEDOM OF RELIGION, not Freedom FROM Religion. Our Founders put God into the founding of this nation and if they didn't respect religion that never would have happened.

    but where did the honour go for it to have to be restored?

    Anyways I will ask as some others did, how is this restoring honor in America? What I saw was them giving thanks to the troops, telling people they weren't grateful enough of the troops, a gospel, and telling people they weren't religious enough.

    This is just my opinion, but to restore honor in America would to have an honest conversation with everyone and to truly stand up for religious freedom and human rights rather than tell people what their religious freedoms and rights ought to be.

In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    Political speeches? What political speeches? Since you didn't watch how do you know what was said?

    He's not.

    The rally was a call for American's to band together to restore honor. We are a nation founded by the belief that we are all guided by a higher power, which is something that our leaders are no longer following. It's up to us, the people, to return to those beliefs and demand our leaders live by them, because time is running out.

    Respond if you like, but I won't argue the point with you.

    Freedom is not given to us by government, it's given to us by God.

    Freedom OF Religion vs. Freedom FROM Religion seems to be confusing to far too many.
