    Hmmm, then maybe you guys ought to be trying to figure out why. I have a feeling you've had that feeling for longer than Obama's been president.

    I do, but in a jokingly and sarcastic manner I do.

    Re: Can you say 'God bless America'?

    No... And for none of the reasons listed in the poll.

    Odd way to frame the topic question. "CAN" you say god bless America as opposed to "Will" you say god bless America or "Would" you say god bless America.

    But regardless of how it's framed, by answer is still "No".

    I said that I feel God has left the country for quite some time, well before Obama.

    To what do you ascribe that change? The Sixties? MTV? Televangelists embezzling the faithful and bedding hookers? What? As a gloomy reflection, "God has left the country" ranks up there with "God hates fags" and "God moves in mysterious ways" on the vacuity scale.

    What makes you think He was there in the first place?
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Some folks obviously thought it so...

    “Resolved, that there are certain essential rights of the British Constitution of government, which are founded in the law of God and nature, and are common rights of mankind. No law of society can, consistent with the law of God and nature, take those rights away.” –- Samuel Adams

    “It having pleased the Almighty Ruler of the universe propitiously to defend the cause of the United American States, and finally by raising us up a powerful friend among the princes of the earth, to establish our Liberty and Independence of lasting foundations.” –- George Washington

    “We meet this evening, not in sorrow, but in gladness of heart. The evacuation of Petersburg and Richmond, and the surrender of the principal insurgent army, give hope of a righteous and speedy peace whose joyous expression cannot be restrained. In the midst of this however, He from whom all blessings flow, must not be forgotten.” -- Abraham Lincoln

    Actually, the secular/sanitized version of US history now taught in American schools amounts to revisionist history. It is only within the last 40 years or so that the Americana heritage of God and Country has acquired a negative connotation. But even so, you can still recognize that past heritage as it lingers on today in our daily lives... God bless America, “So help me God”, In God We Trust, etc.

    As a Conservative I can say:

    God bless America!

    I would rather say "God bless everyone"

    God is god of everything, not a single nation.
