Following up on my earlier post and getting back on topic, I used to think that MOST Americans held dear those liberties protected by the Bill of Rights. The PIA (Public Indoctrination Ad) mentioned above is an obvious attack on the "natural right of self defense," recognized at least as far back as the English Bill of Rights from 1869. I'm appalled at the number of Americans who no longer seem to believe that "All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing," and that Zimmerman should have stayed in his truck rather than confront the perpetrators of the increasing crime in his neighborhood.BigGuy wrote:I used to listen to all you right wing whack jobs talking about the fall of America with a bit of a smirk on my face. But lately I'm getting real uneasy with what I see on the news. Case in point: 34% say First Amendment goes too far in protecting rights
More than a third of Americans think the Constitution provides too many rights!
Wish I'd listened to you guys a few years earlier. I'm starting to think it's way past time to start stockpiling food, ammo, and digging a hole.
I always knew there would be some people who would attempt to villainize the man who stood up against evil while praising the drug using thug who attacked him. I just thought it would be a small number, not a third or more. How long until it's more than half?
Scuse me. I'll be in the back yard, digging a hole.
EDIT: English Bill of Rights dates from 1689, not 1869 as I dyslexically typed.
