    American was founded and became great by people who came here for freedom from government. In fact, there was little or no government when they came and they kept it that with the Constitution.

    Today, people come here not to be free and contribute to society but to get welfare entitlements from liberal Democrats. Minorities and immigrants voted overwhelmingly for Obamabucks, not for freedom.

    How can America survive when its newest citizens and minorities come here to leech off the system rather than contribute to it?

    Oh my. Seems there were these predictions with the influx of Irish. Italians. Germans. Or what ever new group came here in large numbers. And then we all can read about all the predictions of doom and gloom during the Roosevelt years. In fact, during either of the Roosevelt's years.

    Such a bunch of sad sacks, these 'Conservatives'. Just cannot get over the fact that the majority of Americans simply don't believe their Bullshit.

    The NDAA exists. This country is no longer in any way shape or form a beacon, land, or anything related to freedom.

    10 days ago you morons said Romney would get 300 electoral votes. You should resign from any post that has you all predicting anything. You clearly suck at it.

    We can't and some don't want us to remain the country our founders envisioned.

    Once the majority of citizens realize they can vote themselves public money, it's the beginning of the end. The liberals have it wrong with their approach. Few have managed to elevate themselves out of poverty with welfare. Most simply rely on it as a permanent part of life and the numbers grow. We are on an unsustainable path. The left will say it's benevolent to offer more and more, but if people don't learn to stand on their own two feet, someday we will all have nothing. When people have enough money leftover on their EBT cards to purchase cigarettes, tattoos and other totally unnecessary items, it is clear we've gone overboard with the freebies.

    It's frightening to think about what the future holds when a growing number of people have shown they are willing to sacrifice freedom and liberty for a government check. The government grows constantly. Hundreds of new regulations have been written just since the election. Obama is wasting no time in the completion of the country's funamental transformation. More and more states petition to secede. I see dark times ahead.

    Yes Jefferson imagined the shot heard round the world would be a shot for freedom from government, now it is merely a shot for welfare leeches who want to steal from the successful.
