Our fight for America isn't over yet

  • Follow Letters

On Nov. 3, 2010, that "shining city upon a hill" was a little brighter, but there's still a long way to go -- and we conservative patriots are still going to have keep up the fight to preserve our way of life, the American way.

We were all born with certain unalienable rights -- the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

So if you cherish these rights, keep up the fight, and God bless America.

Rozzie2003, ‘Your way of life is going back---to the 40's and 50's, when the white man thought he was superior to everybody esle.’
Way to go Rozzie, it is all about race. It is sad that so many black people really believe that. But then that is what they have been taught in black communities and black churches by many black leaders and the DUMocrats for many years.

The people who are really

The people who are really superior are the people that can do the math and know without big changes there is no hope for this country. The takers are out-numbering the givers. Something has to change and only wisdom from God can fix this. As the country moves further away from God and His ways the worst it becomes. The Christians can be at peace knowing God will care for them.

This letter reveals the fascism of the right. What about the liberal patriots of this nation? What about the members of the armed forces who vote democrat? Does that "I support the troops"'bumper sticker on the back of your vehicle only apply to those soldiers who vote republican?

"Your way of life is going back---to the 40's and 50's, when the white man thought he was superior to everybody esle."

.....Wow, damning all men with white skin for the actions of a few. Talk about a superiority complex. Or just plain ignorance, take your choice.

.....There's nothing wrong with being ignorant of course. It's simply the state of not knowing something. Being uninformed or lacking knowledge or education in general or in a specific subject.

.....Like the fact that white men were risking their lives (and sometimes losing their lives) to secure equal rights for people of color.

"This letter reveals the fascism of the right."

.....Amazing! Talk about reading between the lines. I've read and re-read the VERY brief (Three sentences.) letter above and defy anyone to find "fascism" anywhere in it.

Fascism: Any movement, ideology, or attitude that favors dictatorial government, centralized control of private enterprise, repression of all opposition, and extreme nationalism.

....How about we adhere to the only sensible words ever known to have been uttered by Rodney King; "Can’t we all just get along?"

BobG, I'll happily point to the fascism of the left as well. Both parties have divided and temporarily conquered the American people. The reason we can't all just get along is because the political parties have convinced too many people that doing so is impossible.

Our country was never designed to just get along! It was designed to be difficult to pass laws etc. Now that the Republicans have some real power and don't have to sit in the back seat drinking a slurpee the Democrates are all about cooperation, getting along,comprimise etc. LOL.

There can be no fascism among the Democrats: Democrat = Socialism. tsk tsk.

It's amazing, really, how we

It's amazing, really, how we can see quite clearly the faults of those we don't like yet remain completely blind to those same faults among those we do like. Both groups have sought to consolidate power at the expense of the American people. You can call it socialism, communism, fascism, or whatever other ism you think sounds really really bad. That doesn't change the fact that both major political parties are essentially the same thing except that one gang wears red and the other gang wears blue.

Don't even suggest that the Tea Party is an alternative. That's just a distraction from the Republican party. Or is it a grass roots movement? (have the cake ... eat it ... have the cake ... eat it ... Hmmmm)

Bob may think that seeing fascism in this letter is reading between the lines. One thing is strongly implied, though. Those who are not Conservatives (that includes all who are not card-carrying Republicans and who toe the hard right line) are not Americans. That sentiment bothers me a great deal as it is also blatantly un-American, as well.

All animals are created equal ... but some animals are MORE equal.

Communism ... Nazi/Fascism ... Good old American Conservatism: sometimes it's hard to tell the difference.

Conservatism is about the

Conservatism is about the tenets of the Constitution. To be a Conservative is to want to be governed in accordance with it. Liberals stray into areas of socialism that has failed in Europe and threatens to strangle us. Can you liberals even look at France, Greece, Spain and UK and learn something?

French are protesting a retirement age going from 60 to 62. UK is cutting 500,000 civil service jobs. They are now where we are heading with liberal policies.

Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness does not mean I have to suffer when I achieve it.

And as for the "fascism" comment up there. Usual liberal retort when they are trumped and have nothing else to say.

It is true that the US

It is true that the US Constitution is a living document. But there is no reason to change something that still works and that is what it seems the Democrats want to do.

The US was founded as a nation separate and apart from England and other european countries, not a country to be just like them. It was a social experiment that WORKED until everybody started monkeying around with it.

Europe is a great place to visit but America as it was and as it can be again is the place to come home to.

lol, orgpsych, like there's more than a nodding difference between fascism and socialism. These two philosophies are just different fingers on the fist of communism. Marxism, Nazism, fascism, socialism are just interpretations of a common theme.

I'm just curious about how Republicans are always labeled as racists when it was DEMOCRATS who were in charge when blacks were being lynched, attacked by police dogs, denied basic human rights, and when confederate battle flags were being made into state flags or hung above state legislatures, like the one that is STILL over the SC legislature that a Dem governor, Ernest Hollings, refused to veto.

Oh southernguy, I've been

Oh southernguy, I've been told many many times when I posed the same question that those Democrats were really Republicans in Democrats clothing because Republicans couldn't get elected in the South for a long long time after the Civil War since Lincoln was a Republican.

I always did think that answer was a bunch of hogwash.

I disagree, the takers do not

I disagree, the takers do not outnumber the givers. The takers are the top 2% that control all the political power and 90% of the money. How is it that WE the WORKING class,are getting poorer, while they, the wealthiest 2% of the country are getting richer? How dare you call me a taker, I work, i pay my taxes, and i favor ending all tax breaks to those making over 1 million a year. To those whom much is given, much is expected. The idea that the wealthiest are the job producers has been proven a fallacy during the last 3 years. They got their tax breaks, yet they continued to cut jobs. The banks got their bailouts, and yet they continue to NOT loan to the small business that DO produce jobs. Please explain to me why the wealthiest, who have NOT done their part, deserve the government's going 700 BILLION dollars more in debt, after making it go 1 TRILLION in debt with no result to the jobs market.

It's true that Democrats were the conservatives of the South, espousing the same ideals of today's Republicans, fearful of change and ensuring the power of the wealthy.

Has anyone ever gotten a job

Has anyone ever gotten a job from a poor man? Most of the jobs come from the "worker" who worked a little harder than everyone else and took a chance. If you envy him you will become poor because of making a heart judgement on him and per the Bible that will come back on you. To become rich, watch the hard worker who became rich and do what he does. If we aren't willing to take that chance we should be satisfied with what we have and do the best at whatever we do. It isn't a sin to not be rich, but it is a sin to envy the rich and blame them for all the poverty in the world. By the way; how much of the taxes in this country are paid by the top 5% of wage earners?? The problem in this country is sin; not the rich.

southernguy08 @7:10 am

southernguy08 @7:10 am Yessiree Bob, the cross I saw burned in the early 1950s at the crossroads of what today is state hiways 46 & 19 was done by dozens of Christian Soldiers decked out in their White Robes and hoods and all were Democrats. All of their offspring today represent part of the Georgia Republicans. btw it was scary for me as a small boy; their warning was to the few Republicans in Wheeler county who often treated non-whites as human beings.

ReformedRepublican: extending

ReformedRepublican: extending the tax cuts for those earning over 250K will not cost the gov't anything. But as long as you insist on using that convoluted way of thinking, did you know that extedning the tax cuts for those making less than 250K will "cost" the fed. gov't between 3 and 4 trillion dollars?

All that happened is that when LBJ signed the Civil Rights Act of 1964, many white conservatives left the Democratic Party to become Republicans. New name, same song.

Historically the Democrats

Historically the Democrats were he conservatives and Republicans more the party of the common people. That all started to change somewhere about mid-20th Century. Now they have essentially switched places.

JC, while we could quibble about specifics, let's just agree that communism and fascism are extremely similar and rooted in the desire of a small group to enforce an autocratic form of government upon the rest. I stand by the rest of my comment that is ti sometimes hard to tell the difference between those approaches to government and the brand of American Conservatism being espoused in this country right now. As evidence I offer the myriad of comments in this very thread.

Chascush @ 1103, BobG @ 1113, & BoNick @ 1120 all clearly support the Conservative viewpoint and all are clearly comments that are racist. Yet the very idea that the Republicans or the Conservatives in this country are racists gets many of them extremely riled up. If you disagree, then speak out about these comments that say it is so.

BobG @ 1125 offered us a definition of Fascism. I many of those eleents being expressed here, especially the extreme nationalism and suppression of opposing viewpoints (Conservatives want to live by the Constitution while Dems want socialism). It's odd that there can only be a black and white interpretation of this document and that interpretation is yours. Somehow, though, it always supports whatever you wish to do. Hmmm

Soldout, please provide a citation for your definitions of sin. Your idea that envy of the rich and blaming them for the poverty in the world is a sin is not something I have ever seen in the Bible. Perhaps it a different black and white interpretation that supports the desire to be rich. That's a bit self-serving, I think.

BTW, envy of the rich is the necessary component that makes capitalism work. Without that element of greed the system would fall apart. By attempting to oppress that desire and those who have that desire you set the stage for a feudal system. That means that the rich would, in fact, be responsible for the poverty in this world.

As I said, sometimes it is hard to see the differences between these three approaches to government. That's probably why people get so confused and call each other fascist, communist or conservative.

That is a large part of the real problem liberal/progressive can’t tell the difference but we conservatives do not have that problem. Perhaps if you liberals would actually study real history you might better understand the difference.
