The Constitution gives us the freedom to worship without forcing anyone to do so. God doesn't force one to follow Him- Why should the Constitution? I can say however that Psalms does say "blessed is the ntion whose God is the Lord" I believe that. America has acknowledged God through Christmas, Thanksgiving, Days of prayer, and through the preambles of our states. We have always been a Godly nation which doesn't mean however that we don't have ungodly people, which is affirmed by those currently in the White House

Now this fat pig is facing indictments for felonies. Illegal gambling ring busted and he is part of it.

What goes around, comes around. South Carolina politics is full blown corrupt. They police themselves way too much in politics.

Explain yourself if u r going to accuse someone. What are the facts your accusations are based on? How has he destroyed the U.S.? What hate do you refer too?? The country was in decline prior to the current president taking over due to deregulation and 8 years of Republican policy, so, again, explain yourself please. Why does a vote for Obama equate to a hate of freedom in your little mind??? Baseless accusations are easy, so back your words with facts if you are capable.

Blacks, Latinos and other minorities combined make up almost half of the population. Then combine that with liberal-progressive and Independent Whites who despise racist and ignorant right-winger; and thatís a strong majority of voters, and we are watching.
These bigoted right-wing tea-baggers will learn in November that hate does not a mid-term electoral victory make.
So we're not supposed to lump these people together because that would be racist but it is okay to lump all us "right-wingers' together and condemn us as a group?? Well, guess what, we aren't all bigoted, we are watching, too, and we also will be voting in November!(and by the way, calling us tea-baggers is extremely offensive. For a group of people that claim tolerance, there certainly is a lot hatred being spewed!!)

My husband served in WW2 - My son served in Viet Nam. They both fought for the right to choose our own health insurance,as did the others who fought for that right. 450,000 men died in WWW2 so that americans could have freedoms, Obama is anti-american just like his advisor and confidante Jeremiah Wright - Michelle anti america also I'll never forgiver her for her comment while others were saluting our flag, "All this over a damaned flag" Our flag is not damned but a gift that was given by Betsy Ross, a praying lady who was inspired. Obama has shown us his flag that he will probably adopt if he gets another term.
If he would just adhere to the principles that this nation was founded on it wouldn't matter to me what he wears on his head.

HE WAS referring to Obama I am sure.
The Freemasons admit "we have stage-managed whole peoples". They originated The Protocols of the Learned elders of Sion in France or maybe hell. Obama is illegal as he is NOT a natural-born Citizen and he was born in Kenya. His mother was a pornstar.

I don't know what happened to my last post - it isn't here. However, today the people hold the destiny of America in their hands. We either vote Obama out or watch American values like charity, self-reliance, accountability completely demolished. Obama and his wife are racists and enemies of America. Michelle Obama's comment, "All this over a damned flag" ,when every one was saluting our flag, is unforgivable. The flag represents, the greatest nation in the world, America.

You do realize the hypocrisy of you being upset the President made fun of special needs individuals and you using the word 'Retarded' to describe his mistake?

uhuh - bonnie has been here too long and
has learned too much to be wrong
The backlash has already started. I saw in a news item today where students at an American college are protesting against the American economics of America and they promoting Fascism and Socialism
ay where students in a college somewhere is protesting against American ideals - they want socialism and Fascism. We must as well buckle down and fight against or surrender to it because that is also Obama's ideology. He's said his plan is to spread the wealth around - sounds good to those who don't mind being a burden but to those who want freedom and independence it is sad.
