The day America died

America was founded on the principle that all people shall live in freedom and liberty. Today our freedoms are being taken away from us.

Freedom of speech is being stomped out. If someone disagrees with the government, you are retaliated against.

The mainstream media suppress the truth.

No longer do we have the freedom to practice our religion because Christians are being chastised and the government is forcing Christians to go against their religious beliefs.

The government is slowly eliminating our right to bear arms. Our military, the protectors of our nation, is being dismantled, making America more vulnerable to our enemies.

Under President Obama, we'll sign treaties with the United Nations, putting Americans under its laws regarding guns, the Internet and offshore oil drilling. America will no longer be a free nation. We will be ruled by the U.N.

Businesses will not have the freedom to hire and run their companies as they want because the unions will force Obama's “Card Check” on them.

To think about all those brave men and women for generation after generation who fought and gave up their lives so that America could be the land of freedom and prosperity have died for nothing. America is being destroyed.

How did we get to this point? It is because of greed and lazy people who don't want to work and want everything handed to them for free. These people will get their free stuff, but is it worth the cost of losing our freedoms?

It will go down in history that Nov. 6, 2012, was the day America died!

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
