    Tired of being embarrassed about America.


    Honestly, even as a conservative I am very embarrassed by Trump and the school shootings and what they says about our country. If our roots are so good why do we have these issues that other civilized countries don't have? Our president is a guy who looks really odd, is 3 times married, cheats on his wife, is dishonest in business, and lies routinely and obliviously as if he has dementia. And now we see the very sad spectacle of terrified school kids begging adults to save them from being massacred in their classrooms by lunatics with military assault rifles. What other civilized nation on earth has these problems, problems which must signal a far broader rot within.


    Causes:

    1) Founders' Constitution kept each branch of govt from growing relative to other branches but not govt in general from growing very liberally,


    2) Founders had no idea how important religious values were as the source of social structure and morality so ignored subject altogether, in effect, creating religious anarchy.


    3) Thinking, grammar, and punctuation in Constitution is so vague and messy as to not make it clear that central govt was to have only a few enumerated powers while states were to retain unlimited remaining powers. Thus, we now virtually have the liberal federal monarchy monopoly our founders thought they were escaping.


    4) The right to bear arms to defend ourselves against liberal govt was, again, not clearly detailed by our timid Founders who certainly and blamelessly did not anticipate liberal school shooters. But why don't we have the wherewithal to take obvious measures to prevent or inhibit school shooters while reaffirming our right to bear arms to protect ourselves from liberal govt? Why? Because conservatives know full well liberals want to take away take away all guns, private/local/schools, religion, state/local independence and consolidate all power in a liberal communist central govt.


    5) Founders again were too timid to say Democracy is mob rule without intelligent office holders and voters so they sheepishly said you had to be 35 to qualify to be president. If they had said you have to pass a test to be president and to vote we would have an intelligent democracy that would not include Trump and 3/4 of those who mob vote now, not for the commonweal but for money in their pockets.

    as president.

    What he and his failed GOP congress doesn’t understand that the 2nd amendment was written when they used single round muskets and shot it from up to a mile away... but for some reason think preventing military style assault weapons is against the 2nd Amendment.

    School shootings started happening under Trump? The word democracy does not appear in any part of the constitution, nor the declaration of independence. We are not a democracy. That, is mob rule. In fact, voting was never meant to be a right, but a privilege.

    Now that we have been thorougly brainwashed into thinking we are a democracy, and now that we can get any dickhead without a brain to vote, an overly pathetic politically correct culture is what we have. Government who have REPRESENTATIVES who can no longer represent we the people, but rather a mob. That is why there are campaigns to "ROCK THE VOTE." Not learn the issues.

    This is not Trumps fault. In case you did not notice, the country right now is ABSOLUTELY THRIVING.

    Didnt notice it? Countless companies giving large bonuses. Businesses on their way back. Unemployent rate falling.

    The fuck are you talking about?

    it is clearly against the second amendment. How do you defend yourself against liberal govt if only liberal govt has big guns???


    George Washington's address to the second session of the First U.S. Congress:

    "Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American people's liberty, teeth and keystone under independence. The church, the plow, the prairie wagon and citizens' firearms are indelibly related. From the hour the pilgrims landed to the present day, events, occurrences and tendencies prove that, to ensure peace, security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable. Every corner of this land knows firearms, and more than 99 and 99/100 percent of them by their silence indicate that they are in safe and sane hands. The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restrains evil influence. They deserve a place of honor with all that's good. When firearms go, all goes. We need them every hour."
