Are America's best days ahead of us or behind us? (UserQ)
Taz, it's not a tough question, best days?.............. Ahead, you can't extinguish the torch of freedom and liberty.
Put politics aside and watch this, it's not political. dailyrushbo.com/glenn-becks-epic-restoring-love-keynote-speech/
Our rag tag militia claimed independence from the strongest military in the world. It's going to be hard to top that.
Depends how far back. Before the 60's it was not a great time. Racism was still large and even before was WW2 and the great depression.

RJ ... defend your silliness. Do you disagree that Greece has failed as an economy or that we are following sit thanks to Barry?
The fact is that decades of corruption in Greece have led to low tax receipts and generous entitlements have bankrupt the govt. we should learn from Greece, not follow.
You 64% are what's ruining America
Wow, that's so insightful Flanders. Which pundit are you regurgitating their baseless talking points from?
Dems are destroying America turning it into one big nanny state until they drive out all entrepreneurial spirit and the debt crushes us like Greece.
That's a tough question
What about the whole Northern Ireland thing, Catholics vs Protestants?
What about abortion clinic bombers/arsonists?
Also, Breivik was a Christian. Look at what he wrote about in his manifesto.
Anarchy, how about the OK City bombers?
Waco? The KKK?
Incremental conditioning, huh? The reference to Animal Farm can be made! "All animals are created equal...but some are more equal than others.". Wait a minute! I don't remember seeing that last part before! Thumbs up, koolaidh8ter!
You guys are so desperate to pin something like this on a right-wing, Christian, you and your media throw journalism to the wind. I remember some hack writing on one of these comment sections "mission accomplished Sarah Palin" about the Giffords shooting 3 hours after it happened. Wtf? Ignorance!
The guy that flew his plane into the IRS building: a Marxist recolutionist. The times square bomber: a Muslim terrorist. Jared laughner, the guy that shot Gabby Giffords: a psycho without political affiliattion. What do they have in common? They were ALL reported to be Tea Partiers without proof.
I suspect Veritas has dodged my question because he looked him up and realized he was wrong. So again, I ask, who is this "Christian Terrorist" that I've yet to hear about?
Jimmy: Anders Behring Breivik wasn't a Christian. He was reported to be at first, just like ABC reported that this Holmes kid was a Tea Party member...turns out it wasn't true, but hey, that would have fit the liberal template so it was reported that way. Breivik was a nut job, plain and simple.
Bummer... Should have been born 100 years ago
I'm glad that the people are actually waking up but we need to stay optimist also and be the change!
... Seems to me perhaps it's the Republicans who don't believe in America, despite the rhetoric to the contrary. C'mon, guys, you really think we've done our best work already? We've only been at it 200 years!
All great empires have fallen, this one is on the decline. Financially, ethically, intellectually...etc.
Good foe iowa, on this map. Nice!
Ahead. Definitely ahead.
The United States's best days are still ahead if us due to our business friendly environment which has been ranked 5th in the world as stated in today's Fareed Zakaria's GPS show on CNN which has lead us to be the best in the world in information services which has made us the most advanced nation.
We'll need more than just Obama's departure from office in order to catch up... and Romney SURE as shiit ain't the answer either.
Ahead, assuming Obama is out of office.
far, far, far behind us.
Ahead of us are some awesome days if we get Obama out of office
With regard to freedoms, liberties and property rights, America is SO far behind us that most people can't even remember them in order to make a sound decision on the matter.
Hard to say. With technology advances I'd say the future. But the past had "some" decent parts.
@jimmyjelly: Are we talking about the one in Norway by Brevik, or was there another in Sweden???
I'm an optimist I have to say ahead
Damn people need to cheer up, or watch more of those sports movies where the team rallies together and comes back to win
@anarchy. Look up Sweden mass murder. Christian extremist who massacred dozens of young people at a liberal political rally.
Grow up. There is a reason for certain amenities in prison. It is not for the comfort of the inmates. It is for the safety of the staff. There would be riots every other week if the conditions were the way you described. Your name says it all. Grow up.
Growup - I agree let's get rid of all government handouts. Stop Social Security it's just another handout, eliminate mortgage deductions and personal exemptions, I should not have to subsidize someone's big mortgage or big family. And while we are at it cut off hands for stealing just like MidEast
The last posting I agree with.
....and the part about not cushy retirement and medical packages for congressmen.
RJ… What's wrong with America it is exactly what you've said… Victim put. We have got to grow up, pull up our big boy pants on our big girl pants that are it pants, and suck it up.
You're not a victim, I'm not a victim, nobody is a victim. We are among the luckiest in the world to live in the US.
Just people issues.
Issues but someway somehow things do change and get better. What other country has such a huge melting pot that somehow melts together and achieves such great things? Oh yeah we still have issues, huge issues but before its all said and done someday there won't be black issues or white issues
Teachers who don't get who don't perform, get fired. Public officials who don't perform, get fired.
Congressmen and women get two terms. No lifetime retirement, no lifetime medical.
No public unions; not firefighters, not policemen, not anyone!
Vegangirl: so yeah it was pathetic back in the old days but as I recall those days were paid for by over 600,000 people that gave everything to change things. But yeah we don'y want to talk about that or the countless thousands who paid in blood to be able to change labor laws, hell yes we have
Sounds wonderful! The American dream is at hand.
You father children, you support them. You don't support them, you get castrated.
You mother children, you support them. You don't support them, you get the equivalent.
You go to jail, no TV, no basketball, no weightlifting, and certainly no conjugal visits, only hard labor in pink underwear.
People who pay into unemployment insurance should not have to become victimized as second class citizens because of a job loss, particularly in a down economy.
THAT'S going to create a value system that hasn't been there for someone's entire life?
RJ ... it must begin at home. It must start by making each individual accountable. No cable TV, cell phones, cars, eating out, cigarettes, alcohol, drugs, if you are in temporary government assistance. If you violate, you're off. Your problem!
Unemployment is 3 months max within 5 year period.
I believe our best days are ahead, and we earn that better tomorrow by rejecting the nanny state offered by progressives, and remembering what made this nation great, and that is initiative.
Nobody deserves any hand-outs. Nobody! The parasites on society must be sorted out, not rewarded.
