Reinterpretation of our

Reinterpretation of our Constitution, political correctness, non-self responsibility & entitlement programs have ruined the core of the American condition, dream and the ideas set by our 'Founding Fathers'. I agree charity begins at home & we should do everything possible to help the needy, educate out youth correctly, provide for our troops families and improve living conditions for all that is willing to work for a better life. However with that said I don't believe in giving for the sake of giving. God states in the bible, I don't care what version or what faith, "he will help those who help themselves." Also for those who don't believe trust is a natural proverb 'You can bring a horse to water but you cannot make him drink' This is what is happening now in the US and around the world. We as a nation have given more to the under-privileged and yet they still under perform. We try to but votes with taxpayer dollars giving, without earning, to various voting blocks in this country so some politician retains or acquires power, especially over the American people. The politicians then think they can buy friendship and allies abroad, again with taxpayer dollars, and all our return on investment, excluding only a minor few countries, is treachery, mis-education and misinformation to their people, flag burning, kidnapping, a death to our people, troops and even allied western personnel. We can not afford to give anymore politically or monetarily. We are broke literally. We cannot afford to give without a self responsive return on our invest of others or other nations. Since the late 1800's, our Presidents, their administrations and our elected politicians have diluted our Constitution and liberties, especially to the Americans who have work the hardest and financed the American society. Liberalism & progressiveness has turn our nation into a highly uneducated, misinformed, dependent populous which the government and a select amount of politicians control, both at the federal and state levels, through self perpetuating bureaucrats, laws, ordinances and regulations. The time is nearing when the true American public will rise and retake the reins of a once proud and great nation.
