    What has happened to the America we grew up in and loved?

    What has happened to the America I grew up in prior to the 70's?

    Back when I grew up we all respected our elders and I we would listen in awe to stories told to us kids by them.

    Many homes of our relatives and friends if not most did not have running water either a hand pump over the sink which had to primed or or a well in the back yard with a hand cranked bucket and a out house for your toilet.

    Yeah we all enjoyed life to the fullest and loved our country proud of it, our state and where I grew up the South.

    We loved country and pop, music you could feel in your soul and understand all the words.

    You just had a deep satisfaction with life free from drugs and strafe for the most part.

    Perverts stayed in the closet and protesters were rare. I could go on but you got the picture.

    A world apparently gone forever but IMHO life is improving here however slightly in America.

    Let's hope we can get some of the old America back again. Geez. Thank you, thank you very much

    Damned commies and hippies and atheists are trying to ruin the whole nation.

    THAT is the problem.

    We're Witnessing/Participating in, the Death of a Nation.

    And no matter which Political Party, be it Republicans or Democrats, Rules from Washington,..... It Ain't gonna get Fixed, cuz' they both are workin' "hand in hand" towards Destroying America, as well as bringing about The "New World Order".

    If the "Founding Fathers" & those people that they led, in to breaking away from England, & establishing America, were here now,.... I Honestly believe that they would be Shocked & Angry over what We have become, & Allowed.

    I also Believe that they would Demand that America return to it's Original Way, & if the "Suits in Washington", & The Bankers/Hollywood Elite refused, .... That within a short period of time, .... The Second American Revolution would begin.

    We're Screwed, as a Nation, ..... If We do not Quickly Wake Up.

    Simple...

    When we kicked God (Judeo Christian God) out of our lives....
    We started a moral decay...
    What we see... is the result of that moral decay.

    So what are we gonna do about it???

    Are we both smart enough to see the problem,
    AND
    Humble enough to do what we need to do???

    Or are we gonna maintain our denial about what really happened...
    And destroy the greatest country in modern times...
    All because we are too arrogant to admit we need a higher power to guide our lives???

    This is certainly part of it. I also connect it to the destruction of the American family. Before the 1970's, 70% of households had a stay at home parent. Then there was the 70's women's movement, and all of a sudden both parents had to work.

    Hey CW, how about we throw you in a time machine? You could go back to a landline, a pager and best of all... NO INTERNET!

    Not a bad idea GC, if that happened though, trolls like you wouldn't have anything to do.
