10 Reasons America is In REAL TROUBLE

*written in 2013

1) Moral Decay: Christianity in this country is slowly retreating from Biblical principles, the Public Square, and American life in general. Our movies, music, and TV shows are provided by people who are almost universally hostile to Christianity and traditional American values.

2) Disintegration of the family: Starting in the sixties there was an explosion of children born out-of-wedlock and kids who don't grow up in two parent families fare more poorly on just about every scale imaginable. Thus we see the disintegration of the American family with undeniable evidence of soaring divorce rates, more out-of-wedlock birth, and all the social decay this causes.

3) End of Constitutional Government: Our entire society is based on a Constitution that is being systematically ignored, distorted, and treated as optional. Our federal government has grown so far beyond the boundaries that were originally intended for it by the Founding Fathers that it intrudes and interferes into almost every facet of American life.

4) An Entitlement Society: With the Democratic Party's entire electoral strategy based around giving people money and goods that they didn't earn, leeching off more productive people has become much more acceptable. To many people, taking welfare, food stamps, free lunches and anything else they can get the government to force someone else to pay for isn't shameful.

5) Dumbing Down of American Education in a Sea of Moral Relativism and Cultural Equality: Schools have moved away from teaching reading, writing, history, morality, and patriotism for the benefit of the students to pushing liberal indoctrination for the benefit of the teachers’ unions and salaries of professors.

6) No Independent Press: The mainstream media has become so partisan for the Democratic Party that it's not significantly different from a state-run media. Though we have some media outlets that counter the main-stream media bias the fact remains that every major network news organization, save one, runs a significant liberal bias. This is compounded by the same overwhelming bias in print media.

7) Erosion of Private Property Rights and the Redistribution of Wealth: Personal property rights were held sacred by our founding fathers to ensure that unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness would propagate endlessly. Personal liberty which is the antipathy of socialism and communism is completely dismantled in the communist manifesto by means of a progressive income tax and the redistribution of wealth.

8) Unraveling of the Civil Society: Today, two Americans may live in the same small community without ever talking. Instead of relying on each other and the private charity of the community and church we lived lonely isolated lives and look to the government for a safety net. Americans have lost confidence in our institutions. Most Americans don't trust our politicians, our criminal justice system, big business, our schools, our media or our churches.

9) Crony Capitalism: The greatest economic principles ever established for the sustainment of personal liberty and prosperity have been thoroughly polluted. The capitalism our founders believed would sustain a free nation has morphed into what some now call "Crony Capitalism". Elected officials have stopped breaking up monopolies, enforcing fair and even regulatory policy for all business, and are instead making special deals with mega-corporations for their mutual gain. These outsized corporations exert unhealthy levels of influence on our political process, which had lead to trillions of tax dollars being lavished on corporate-welfare, tax loopholes, and is destroying the free market.

10) Divided We Fall: The differences between the Republican and Democratic Party have become so great that there is very little common ground anymore. The core ideology of our two political parties are diametrically opposed to one another and cannot coexist
