It's hard to witness the dumbing down of America. It's hard to see how a people of strength and character, with a can do attitude is slowly turning into "I can't do it on my own". It's hard to believe people can so easily forget history, and forget how our strength saved more countries and spread freedom, because it was the right thing to do. We have accepted debt on such a massive scale, we have harmed our children's future.We've become lazy and demanding. We have an attitude "let my neighbor pay, he's got more than me", we're like jealous children, watching the candy bar being cut in half, making sure no one gets a slightly larger piece, and if we think they did, we're ready to have a tantrum and whine the rest of the day.
