    "The United States is only one superpower. Today they lead the world. Nobody has doubts about it. Militarily. They also lead economically but they're getting weak. But they don't lead morally and politically anymore. The world has no leadership. The United States was always the last resort and hope for all other nations. There was the hope, whenever something was going wrong, one could count on the United States. Today, we lost that hope."

    He's right, and that's a shame.

    "In a video-taped interview by a group known as foundingbloggers.com, Walesa indicated that the U.S. was heading toward socialism because of two factors:


    The issue with the banks; and the government wastes all the money; they build a bureaucracy; just for itself.


    He went on to reassure:

    But we will not let you devolve to communism here."

    I agree with him. We have lost our moral bearing
    We are no longer that nation that could be counted on to do the right thing.

    Starting a war based on lies, torturing prisoners, denying human rights

    This is not the America of old

    Cant imagine why we lost our moral bearing.. Oh yeah, because we have an entire party who refuses to even acknowledge morality exists and who cares more about looking good than doing what's right.
