    I think overall we're way ahead of whoever is in 2nd Place, but the truth we USED TO BE #1 in almost EVERYTHING. That video to me is a wake-up call for those who have gotten comfortable with mediocrity. We're still good, basically, but we used to be GREAT!

    ETA: Whaddayaknow, eots posted a thread that won't go to the Conspiracy Theories Forum..... :clap2::lol::D:cool::udaman:

    And why have we fallen from #1 in nearly everything? The Communist/Marxist/Socialist policies of the redistribution liberal who has destroyed this nation with their failed ideology.

    And that, my USMB friends, is the most honest 15 seconds on message boards...

    It was scripted so I can't say I care... It had a piano for the "touching" moments and he honestly didn't answer the question. In the end he said we used to be great as if greed (the bad kind) and corruption did not exist, he did not say why greed (the bad kind) and corruption is so dominate today.

    He tosses out a list of other countries that are free, but they are not, just as the US is not.

    The only part I liked is that he called the Liberal and the Conservative out for something, a small something, but a something. But I don’t know where he is coming from… Does he think we were great because of free enterprise , free markets, free people…. Or because Government helped with the space race, or WW2 and FDR? I honestly don’t know. He also gave no time line, so when was this “before” period, like 1835, or like 1923?

    Sure, liberals play like they are the elite smart even if they can’t figure out how to balance a budget or repeal a Bush policy, and sure Conservatives are full of shit by claiming America is great because we’re supposed to be cowboys… But giving me a list of stuff that I already know politicians are full of crap about does not tell me his position…

    So I guess good for him, he can read a script and no one interrupts him and instead sits there like they just got owned… Yet he said nothing.

    You were forced to type those words when you started the thread? Then you had the audacity to put a clip from an HBO show in the politics forum, and now you want me to believe you made a mistake?

    The series aint as good as this clip. It just goes back to Left/Right Liberal/Conservative stereotypes we've already heard a million times.
