OUR NATION IS IN HOT WATER*

For several decades now, America has basically had a two-party system: Democrats and Republicans. Each of these parties has been engaged in the gradual but consistent growth of the central government and its claim on power. Ever expanding programs offering benefits to the masses are difficult to resist, and with the proliferation of the news media it also became possible for elected officials to gain great notoriety and power. This power became addicting to many elected officials who, instead of going to Washington, DC, for a brief time to represent their constituency, wanted to hold their positions for extended periods of time---even for life. The growing power and the progressive intrusion of government into the lives of the people was so insidious that it went largely undetected. This process is much like the frog that willingly sits in the saucepan as the temperature is gradually increased until the water is boiling, killing the frog. The frog would have immediately jumped out of the saucepan, if the water was already boiling from the beginning.
In early 2009, many throughout America voiced their discontent as they began to worry about the excessive government spending for such as TARP (Troubled Assets Relief Program) and the proposed bailout for many Wall Street entities and large companies such as General Motors. The country was already in significant debt, with no clear indication of how the money was going to be repaid. It is easy to see how our growing debt, excessive spending, and elected leaders ignoring the will of the people closely resembles the set of circumstances that precipitated the American Revolution.

Yes I am afraid that it is indeed boiling.
Not sure the frog has been completely cooked, I certainly hope he isn't.

I sure would like to see this country turn back toward the standards and values that we all knew in the days shortly after WWII.

The only way we will ever go back to the standards and values we once had would be to get rid of the ACLU.

Unless there is a serious, serious awakening, it's over. I'm just waiting on the Comet.

Thanks to all for your comments.

Iholmes, I'm afraid you might be correct.

Would that it could turn around but I think we have wandered too far off course.

I encourage everyone to secure a copy of Dr. Carson's wonderful book and read every word in it.

The good ship "America has indeed left the dock.

However it has not set sail for some distant shore.

It simply has started to sink right in the harbor.

It was a good ride, the liberals destroyed it.

LIVE WITH IT

DAMN,I'm mad now... Jimmy Mack wasn't aboard that sinking ship. I offered to help him pack for that ship!

timeontarget commented on Sunday, Apr 28, 2013 at 06:04 AM

When the good ship finally goes down "their kind" will all be aboard and none of them will believe that they had anything at all to do with having caused the disaster.

A cow cannot live off of it's own milk. At least not for an extended period of time.

They are all parasites.

This was a wonderful country.

The entitlement mentality has brought it to this state.
