Why does it seem like America is getting crazier with each passing year? It has become glaringly apparent that very deep corruption has taken root in our society from the lowest levels of society all the way up to the highest levels of society. In fact, some of the worst behavior of all is being exhibited by those that are supposed to be “examples” for our young people – politicians, bankers, lawyers, CEOs, etc.
As we enter 2013, the American people are greedy, selfish, boastful, proud, arrogant, disrespectful, ungrateful, materialistic, unforgiving, without self-control and they are completely and totally addicted to entertainment. They believe that America will always be “the greatest nation on earth” just because of who we are, and they believe that the rest of the world should look up to us as a bright, shining example of everything that is good in the world. Meanwhile, we lead the world in a large number of negative categories and our society is decaying right in front of our eyes. It reminds me of what happened during the waning days of the Roman Empire.
The Romans just assumed that Rome would always be dominant forever, and they became extremely complacent and extraordinarily decadent. We all know how that turned out, and at this point things are not looking good for America either. So where do we go from here?
Well, it might help to ask ourselves a few questions as another year begins.
The following are 25 “why questions” for you to ponder as we enter 2013…
Why did the New York Times (the most read newspaper in the country) publish an article by a Georgetown University professor entitled “Let’s Give Up On The Constitution“? What kind of message are they trying to send by publishing that trash?
Why is the U.S. government actively supporting and giving aid to Syrian rebels that are beheading Christians? Just the other day, Syrian rebels beheaded one Christian man and fed his body to dogs. The man that they killed had recently been married and was expecting his first child.
If “terrorists” are the threat we are all supposed to be worried about, then why is the U.S. government spending gigantic mountains of money to watch and monitor Americans? Today, the American people are the most surveilled people in the history of the world. Why is this happening? What will our society eventually look like if we keep going down this path?
Why are so many workers claiming Social Security disability? Back in 1967, there were about 41 workers for every person on Social Security disability. Today, there are only about 16 workers for every person on Social Security disability.
