Next step is in 2012, when on the eve of the election we announce that China is going to use it's controlling interest in the US to take over.
    oh great. i bet now it will be the obamawasactuallyborninchinanotkenya mantra. way to go. LOL. j/k!

It happened when group rights became more important than individual rights. It progressed with pork barrel economics, and the willingness of the press to become politicized rather then just reporting the facts.

    And now it has reached the point where fellow Americans who disagree with what's happened to their country are called "Beckerheads" (and of course much worse) and the serious issues will be avoided. Insults have been substituted for honest give and take, and apparently thought to be an effective part of legitimate debate.

    The Muslims building a Mosque where fellow Americans were incinerated get more respect than those who would want to bring Americans closer together. This goes beyond "honor" but into the destruction of what America once was and what it once represented. As far as I can tell there is little chance that America can be turned around. The ignorance, perpetuated by a few decades of successfully dumbing down of its citizenry through a corrupt education system and media, has paid off handsomely for those who support Big Brother policies.

    Poll results are in!!

    I took a small local poll (three neighbors and the FedEx guy)...

    According to the respondents, America doesn't seem any more honorable this afternoon than it did before the Beck-kateers' circle jerk at the Lincoln Memorial. Go figger.

    What honor is being restored? Getting back to white presidents?
    kind of what i was wondering...whose honor? what honor? who lost it?

    no way, you're kidding, i bet the people you polled were liberal plants (probably daffodils)
    So follow me into the desert

    This reply I will answer with pleasure.

    I won't go all "fire and brimstone" on you, because I'm not a Christian, nor am I a religious person. What I am is a person that doesn't ignore history and uses common sense. Whether you believe in God or not, doesn't change the fact that that's the values America was founded upon. Those values created a country like no other in the history of the world.

    You don't have to believe in God to see how that belief forged this great nation. For the last 40 years or so, we have watched the country slowly fall apart, as the anti-religion/anti-god sentiments have seeped into all branches of our government. It doesn't take a rocket scientist, just a person with simple common sense, to see that the more this nation has rejected religion, the worse off it's become. It all started to snow ball in the 60's and the results have been undeniable. We've watched the family unit dissolve, crime go through the roof, morality slip away and our government transform from a government working for the people, to a government dictating their will to the people. Americans used to be proud to forge their own futures and make their own way, but all that has changed. We have turned into a nation becoming more and more dependent on the government to provide for us.

    It's time for this crap to stop. Whether you believe in god or not, we need to, as a nation, go back to embracing the values that made this nation great, not rejecting them like we have over the last 40+ years.

    One nation under God was a successful, proud nation... One nation protected from God is destroying us.

    Re: Still waiting....

    Thought the rally went well. Did a nice job of keeping the message politically neutral with the focus on spirituality and basic values. Can see where some may be less inspired by the message than others....but those directing insults at the event are puzzling at best. (in particular the posters that didn't even watch it)

    Overall believe Beck and crew pulled things off pretty well. Upbeat message. Kept it above the political fray. And they picked a day with some great weather....!!

    No, it wasn't a political rally. It was a call to the people to embrace the values that made this nation great.

    Glinda's Fedex guy lost it on the way to DC, this whole thing is a massive effort to search for it, I think.
    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.
