No. It just seems that way because of how the media, both liberal and conservative media, portrays it.

Fact: Our country and our society as a whole, has been on a downward spiral since the 1990s.

What happens as a result to this country is the Bible being fulfilled. One thing the Right can't stop is...God. It's going to happen regardless who sits in the Oval Office, because yes, our nation has become a land of greed and noncaring.

I am older myself, but I sit a couple of times a week and listen to one much older than me...teaching me what it means to be honest, do the right thing, and, be content. I thank God all the time for this Senior lady that came into my life to show me exactly what it means to be happy with what we have, and, continue to show me the difference between wants vs needs.

Values? You mean starting off by overthrowing the government by force (the British), then moving into killing off the Indians, then enslaving black people as personal owned property? Things like that?

Luckily, after slavery, someone invented the airplane so we moved to blowing up other countries from that point on. Although we revert to bashing gays and things like that when bored.

America has lost the values which we were found on. The trouble with America is they don't read the bible, go to church or have basic respect for themselves or others.

Disagree that it's not reading the bible that's the problem. Although the bible is good for instilling basic moral human code and telling stories that have a moral foundation.

I agree that people now days don't respect others and sometimes even themselves. It's our society that's to blame, our "get my money, fuck you" type of attitude.

Or the type of a Machiavellian type attitude "the end justifies the means" as long as I get what I need.

We now have an elected dictator, our founders would be ashamed. Reagan was right, Freedom isn't in our DNA it must be fought for, if we lose it here there's no where else left on earth

The Constitution is my bible & it's been shït all over from Patriot Act 1 - NDAA. It's not the figure head who signs them in to law, it's partisans, special interest and corporations overhauling everything that once made America great & turning us in to a post industrial nation

Are there Legit Libertarians in KY? I'm more of a paleocon but that's pretty much Libertarian. I'm so sick of agendas over principals in the country, I may get active again & rip this 2party duopoly a new one around here.

You mean back when whites raped and killed non whites and the courts did nothing? Perhaps back when a robbery or murder occurred and rather than convicting the real killer (white) a black man was convicted instead. White boy covering his white boy buddies butt. Back when the non whites had to lock their doors? White on white violence was happening then too! Poor no brain Archie.

Your imaginary friend has no effect on this country. The Bible is nonsense.

If America is founded on the Bible, why isn't the Bible mentioned in the Constitution?
