I ask, what has America become?

America has become the land of the special interests and the home of double standards.

If we lie to Congress, it’s a felony. If Congress lies to us, it’s just politics. If we dislike black people we are racist. If a black person hates “whites” it’s his 1st amendment right. The government spends millions to rehabilitate criminals, but does little for the victims.

In public schools it’s okay to teach homosexuality, just don’t bring God to the classroom. You can kill an unborn child, but don’t execute a mass murderer. We no longer say communist or socialist; they are now referred to as progressives.

If you go against Obama’s policies you are a terrorist, but if you burn the American Flag or a Trump doll in effigy, again 1st amendment rights. You can have pornography on TV or the Internet, but don’t erect a Nativity scene at Christmastime. All criminals are classified as sick people who need help. We can use human fetuses for medical research, just don’t kill an animal.

The government takes money from those who work hard and gives it to those who won’t work. We still have freedom of speech, but only if it’s politically correct. Parenting has been replaced by drugs and videos advocating harm to your fellow man. The land of opportunity has become the land of handouts.

How does the government handle a crisis? They appoint a committee to determine who’s at fault and pass a law to increase taxes and go back on the re-election trail and lie some more.

I respectfully ask you again, what has the land of the free and the home of the brave become?

The rabid, ultra-left won’t stop until they destroy America and our democracy to own your very soul.

Do you really want the likes of Nancy Pelosi to control your life? I sure don’t.
