I am just saying that seldom does inaction work out on a personal or global scale. I also will never try to defend the ideals of Russia or China because they are much further down the path of injustice committed against their own than we are. There is a lot going on in this country that I vehemently disagree with, but saying that we have swapped places with Russia or China is a bit hyperbolic or selective of the issues each country has at best.
I know there are probably plenty of topics that a lot of folks here wouldn't agree with me on and that is completely ok with me. If everyone thought exactly like me, it probably wouldn't work either. I still think there is hope for America to get better, but it is going to be through our kids and grandkids. We don't have enough years left to fight it all on our own and kids have never listened to old folk anyway, haha. The best we can do is be active in our political arenas, raise our kids to be self-sufficient, worthwhile human beings that embrace the values we hold dear, and treat those around us with enough respect that we dont slam the door in our own face before we can win them over to our side.
I respect your opinions...let me clarify; I mentioned both Russian and China...neither put up with liberal cr*p because they know it is a threat to their national identity & sovereignty. However, from a moral perspective, they are not even close. China is an atheist communist regime...Russia is "closer" to what the USA used to be. They (Russia) will never be as good as what our founders created...but we are losing that (as you seem to agree), and at some point, if they are openly Christian and defend traditional values, then their culture is more like the US glory days. Believe me, the left and the media and the Chinese would love the two most powerful predominantly Christian nations to be fighting one another...Russia will only be our enemy if we force them to...they are not in our hemisphere surrounding us, but we do it to them all the time. I'm pro-America, and not getting into a war for no good reason is in our national interests...but if we did, China is a much larger threat.
