Perfectly said. I AM guilty of being one of millions who stood up and called it like it is. The followers of Obama remind me of the Ostrich with their heads up their keesters and not in the sand. I'm 60 and I have watched with amazement of how this country has turned from a strong, God loving country to a nation of ignorance in the last 40 years with it's drive to become a socialist, government controlled country. Sadly, it's happening and the supporters of this don't even recognize it for what it is but, call it political correctness so that makes it right.

Same boat here.The sad part is that these so called "progressives", I call them communists because that's what they are, who claim to be so "enlightened", can't see past their noses far enough to recognize the fact that they are ery effectively killing capitalism, the goose that lays the golden egg. There can be only one result and it isn't good. One only needs to look at what happened to the Soviets because that's exactly where we're headed.

During the Los Angeles riots of 1992, Rodney King famously asked, “Can’t we all just get along?” The answer should be an easy and unequivocal “yes,” but it seems less and less likely these days.

King was speaking in term of race, but the same could be said of political ideology. Liberals, conservatives and every other point on the political spectrum used to co-exist fairly easily (with the exception of left-wing anarchists who don’t get along with anyone). But these days détente has given way to anger and open hostility.

Some, not all, people have become less civil to those...
