There are many people doing their best to rewrite this country's history. America may not be a "Christian nation" but it was founded on Christian principles even though many say, America would still be the nation it is today without Christianity......

Yes I see many examples of these countries all over the world.

Gods Provision,God will provde, Our forefathers believed in a loving caring God.They left Monarchy's to live away from tyranny and be free.Freedom is/was the goal.Our Democracy was set up to provide the Basics. Socialists want the goverment to provide everything thus limiting you to the Goverments choices.So much for freedom.I believe our forefathers were responsible,independant,driven men and women who understood that with honest hard work and effort come prosperity,providence. If your motives are good,you act in a Christian manner, Love thy neighbor, follow the Ten Commandments, Your efforts would be multiplied and your prosperity would be attained. Unfortunately we are electing politicions who self serving or at the very least state serving and spending our money endlessly. Social programs will destroy this Great Nation from the inside out.I dont mind paying for infrastructure,Lawmen, Courts,The basic needs of our Goverment. I DO mind paying for illegal immigrants,healthcare,retirement,Welfare. My Gandfather came here in 1908 from Italy to work and make something for his family,he learned the LANGUAGE, WORKED 16Hr DAYS, SAVED HIS MONEY and PROVIDED for his family. Just the way our forefathers thought bit should be. Am I Ranting?

I see what you say is true.......when America is wrong she suffers.....It was not our for fathers that started slavery on this land......yes some may have taken advantage of the cheap ,strong labor.But Ben Franklin started the abolishment movement.....Lincoln signed the papers.........America freed the slaves that were brought here by the English . Google Jim Jones Peoples Temple. This is what we fight.......and still........we let our guard down....we let our walls down......
