Fix your remembrance on Sept. 18, 1787. The day before, longheaded delegates to the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia had given this nation an unprecedented birth of freedom. A written Constitution renounced the monarchies, privileges, and caste-like divides of the Old World. It embraced limited government enshrined by a separation of powers and checks and balances. In lieu of trusting angels, ambition was to counteract ambition to maintain an equilibrium of freedom.

Those very words have been coming to me a lot lately, "If we can keep it". Each day I am beginning to doubt it more and more. In fact I believe it is too late. The NWO is alive and doing very well.
Great minds and all that...
We lost our Republic during the reign of Lyndon B. Johnson, who passed Kennedy's (the eastern liberal elite's) NWO social engineering legislation that Kennedy couldn't have had he lived. Teddy Kennedy and his elitist friends gave us the Immigration Act of 1965 -- a fateful year. Nixon simply built on Johnson's program and gave the coup de grace to the American Republic, taking us off the gold standard and instituting such wonders as the EPA, EEO, etc. While Reagan accomplished much that was good and great, he simply couldn't stem the socialist tide, especially with a socialist (Democrat) Congress.
We now live in a multicultural, equal-outcomes, politically-correct Marxist "paradise." Mose Allison wrote a song about that but his title was "Livin' in a Fool's Paradise." We are now watching the end game. What's sad is that many Freepers don't have a clue as to what's happening.
Hint: Hillary's begun her Presidential/elect Democrats to Congress campaigns in earnest, and the socialists in Congress and media are hard at work helping her blame the Clintons' sins on Dubya. What's more, American voters will drink the Kool Aid unless -- sad thoughts! -- we go to war with Iraq or there's another terrorist assault on America itself. Even then, most (including 'conservatives,') will vote for their own selfish pork barrel interests instead of national principle and we'll continue the march toward serfdom.
So very true, it is sad, VERY sad.
Think what you want, makes absolutely no difference to me. Your not alone, many think as you do, many.
It is hard to find a time to say... here is the turning point ... It did not not seem so at the time to the majority of the people; but Franklin Roosevelt began a major leap into socialism. Social security, income tax, many controls on business etc. etc. ...
It has proceeded relentlessly ever since; and been called progress. It has definitely swung too far into socialism. The truth is we are following in the steps of Europe. This is so stupid when we can see what it has done to them.
Immigration is undoing us. (the main one of many aspects contributing to our demise) It is too many, to quickly, without a system to gradually introduce additional peoples, we are bringing our system down ... soon to be like any other third world county. With the leaders of the third world countries being in power here. Simply because their numbers of population are greater. Is there a way to avoid this? Not as long a speople continue to believe it is not too bad for me yet. I'm living well. and ignoring the facts.
The money (mindless) giving of billions to the whole world is crazy. It is bankrupting us. Trillions of dollors of debt and increasing spending by billions and billions everyday here is the U.S. Makes no sense. Waste, corruption, outright theivery is rampant.... and so on.........
