Good work Mr. Shapiro. Now, if only the Senate Republicans and some House Republicans would wakeup and realize that the biggest threat to America is not Iran or some other outside threat, it is leftist culture that now dominates and has replaced American culture... centralized force and coercion replacing cooperation and consent.

The biggest threat to the US is its slavish devotion to providing women-children w/ consequence-free, responsibility-optional lifestyles in the form of the $1T per year "Welfare Industrial Complex"; the perpetual "War on Poverty" is bankrupting this country.

Progressivism in America has always been a thuggish ideology. It rests on the notion that laws require no evidence to support their implementation, that intentions are all that matter and that those who oppose "change" of the sort progressives like are morally deficient. Progressivism requires Americans to separate off certain groups in American life as evil -- the rich ("greedy!"), gun owners ("hooligans!"), traditionally religious people ("sexists!"), Constitutional government advocates ("bigots!"). It requires that certain Americans be cast as good -- racial and ethnic minorities, low income earners and women ("victimized!"), irreligious people ("rationalists!") and big government advocates ("experts!").
