Adios America ! You Had a Great Run

To have such thought – to even consider it from a knowledgeable professional - in this nation today is tantamount to thinking of shooting your new born baby.


http://www.nytimes.com/2012/12/31/opinion/lets-give-up-on-the-constitution.html?pagewanted=all

"Our obsession with the Constitution has saddled us with a dysfunctional political system, kept us from debating the merits of divisive issues and inflamed our public discourse. Instead of arguing about what is to be done, we argue about what James Madison might have wanted done 225 years ago. As someone who has taught constitutional law for almost 40 years, I am ashamed it took me so long to see how bizarre all this is. Imagine that after careful study a government official — say, the president or one of the party leaders in Congress — reaches a considered judgment that a particular course of action is best for the country. Suddenly, someone bursts into the room with new information: a group of white propertied men who have been dead for two centuries, knew nothing of our present situation, acted illegally under existing law and thought it was fine to own slaves might have disagreed with this course of action. Is it even remotely rational that the official should change his or her mind because of this divination?"

It's just about over AOW. When we lose the house in 2016, that will seal it. I see no hopeful leadership to bring us back from brink in the future. I pray I'm wrong.

The problem is not the Constitution. The problem is with the people who WE, the people, have elected to govern us. For more than 200 years, bigger men than these useless, corrupt puppets could govern under the Constitution, now these clowns find it too restrictive ...

I see the problem as
we in the US
at the turn of the last-last -century-=
allowed our once excellent education system to sloooowly fall into the hands of the communist-progressives-
THUS-we have 'learned' (SARC)professors who are teaching our young this crap-

I am not giving up--because I see the likes of such as the homeschool movement growing-
I may not see a change in my life=time=but= it is NOT TOO LATE!!!!!

The house will be lost in 2014, CM. But since the course we are on is not sustainable, it will be a 1964, to a coming 1980.

If not, TVP = $2.65 a pound dry, STILL, and there's always THIS, for newbies.

Be someplace you can have a garden you can watch over, and a heating system not dependent on electricity.

Otherwise, no problem.

Pasto

I think this from EPAs post above is what will happen - the coming war with Islam:

"Perhaps it will come due in a non obvious manner (a military defeat due to lack of enough or modern equipment). Perhaps it will come due when we cannot act in our own defense overseas. Perhaps we will see allies abandon us."

In WWII Britain started out a rich country and end up bankrupt defending herself.

Now, we are a bankrupt country having soon to defend itself for survival.

No go. Or perhaps we depend on our nukes - if we have any left after Obama dismantles them.
