    it isobama’s fault—–pushing un patriotism taking God out of everything because he does not recognize Him.

    I am anything but apathetic when it comes to my rights and liberties. I think there are far too many liberals who are willing to give up their freedoms. Those of us who truly love America do not feel our government is representing us but it is representing it’s own agenda. We truly need to dismantle this government and reconstitute a new smaller government that works of the people, by the people and for the people. Not lobbyists, big corporations the government. This administration is out of control and needs to be reigned in.

      As per my comment to Peter… what EXACTLY are you DOING to ‘reign in’ this ‘out of control’ administration??? Give people solutions, not the problem re-stated. Not apathetic??? If you’re not doing something, than that is the worst kind of apathy. Knowledge of the problem, saying action needs to be done, then waiting for someone to do it for you. It’s disingenuous and hypocritical. Most are just ignorant.

      • David Bloch, USMC, Retired says:

        @Sharon Lynn– Gee, I did not see that she restated the problem, but rather DID offer a solution to the present governing system. And I wholeheartedly agree with her. Back to your comment. It’s funny– anyone can say what you just did. But you have not told us what you are doing, or maybe what we should be doing. Hypocrites do have a need to point out failings in others, as it bolsters their own mask to their inner being.

  3. Sadly, this is very true. Americans’ state of apathy is a dangerous one, as you point out. It begins in broken homes, often with one parent who, himself/herself, is undereducated. Americans’ condition of being undereducated comes from where?… the “school” system that is mandated by who?… the govt and, administered by who?… the unions.

    Connect the dots.

    A government that is bent on expansion is not going to teach the principles of limited government that were held by our brilliant Founding Fathers- it is simply contrary to its agenda.

    >>This is why I make HistoryStrips. (Google: HistoryStrips.) WE must teach our children at home, the truth about this great country, about the courageous people who brought us our freedom and the principles of freedom upon which they established our wonderful country.

    Display a HistoryStrip at home. Teach your children what they are not learning in “school.”

      Thank you Peter. When, on the occasions I post something, it is this…Hundreds of millions of comments across the spectrum over days, I hear the following…”Wow, am I glad you’re out there DOING something to try to save this Country, Rights, Morals, Christ (fill in the blank): I’m with ya! Keep going!”. OOORR… everyone loves to expound on their deep understanding and restate the problems with their own special words of wisdom. Another favorite is ‘the blame game’. My comments, which are few, are this: What are YOU DOING, yourselves to take ACTION??? Glad to see another who IS DOING! My contributions are numerous and has cost me many relationships, put my financial, and at times, physical situation in jeopardy…not important when I am PERSONALLY threatened. Jesus says: 1. PRAY 2. KNOW the WORD OF GOD and 3. STAND. DO SOMETHING PEOPLE!!!! Print articles, make flyers, call everyone to inform…SOMETHING!!! Want to be popular or P.C.? That’s real apathy. Put your resources where your mouth is, get off your high horses and take ACTION!!!

  4. It’s no wonder Americans seen uninterested in the
    scandals. The Congress and Government Officials
    just seem to kick the can down the road once more.
    Every thing is in a group who will be looking at the
    problem and get back to us ( Americans) sometime
    in the future. No wonder we are disenchanted with
    the government Congressmen. If these Officials were holding a regular job in a business they would be fired in a heart beat. Business couldn’t
    put up with their dilling dalling around a problem.

    OMG, the more I learn, the less I want to know. We are spiraling the drain, and the sheeple have no idea. When we are all killing each other for food, because the system collapsed, we can look back and say, I should have paid closer attention.
