Exactly. And few coming out of our educational system today have ever been exposed to, much less taught, the truth of what that "idea" means - why it's so precious and delicate. Many college graduates know little if anything about WWII - how it came to be and how it reshaped the world, for instance. The current movie "America" gives just a glimpse of what has happened in the past 40 years. Progressives are nothing if not tenacious. They gradually took over government and education while the citizenry watched television and played video games. I'm praying Doug is right...but it's going to take a very rare individual to step into the shoes of David...and it's going to take a strong citizenry supporting that individual to clean out the morass of the entrenched bureaucracy...tens of thousands of minions "just doing my job."

Put simply, there is no one in any office of the United States today who has the integrity or the vision to create what our forefathers created. Given the political climate today, the United States could never be recreated, and it is becoming more and more clear that even preserving it may be beyond our grasp. It's going to take more than our strength.
I lived in Boulder, CO, for years. There, creeping rentals is gradually destroying the look, if not the value of the homes. Owners are pulling equity out of their homes, buying new ones outside of Boulder and renting their Boulder properties to University of Colorado students for $800 to $1,000/bedroom. Most of the properties are not maintained, and the students have no interest in caring for what's not theirs. The result is trashed properties including window screens torn out, trash in the yards, overgrown trees & shrubs and broken walkways and steps. Walking through Boulder, it's very easy to pick out rentals from owner-occupied homes. And the "cancer" grows each year as more and more owners give it up, join the college cash cow...
I'm just hoping that the pilot and crew of my next commercial flight have had time for a "smoke" break before the flight! Could be interesting. Or, how about the surgeon and operating room staff for my surgery...a nice "smoke" break before surgery would be perfect...as long as I got to toke along. :) Maybe this is why President Obama was concerned about surgeons removing a leg rather than a spleen. :) Forward to the future!!
Another of the union's goals is ignorance, which leads to inability to find work, which leads to dependency on the federal government, which leads to more votes for Democrats. Just like the other Third World governments, the Democrats feed off of the ignorant poor... The socialist democratic party has been nurturing ignorance and dependence for years...while the voters stand around and watch. The tipping point has been reached...the foundation of the United States is crumbling and there's not a populace with the strength, brains and intelligence to change it. New York's "9-11" was eleven years ago...the country's "9-11" is on the horizon. And there's no place to run...

Exactly the point that struck me..."Wow! A researcher who actually changes his mind once the facts are revealed and verified!" I guess I've been wrong...apparently there stil ARE a few honest and true scientists left on the planet.

The frightening thing is, there are not enough intelligent, thinking voters left to change things. The Useful Idiots believe everything coming from Obama's lips, even if they are obvious lies. The inmates are not in charge of the nuthouse...
