Let me just add.......yes and i have spoken about it much on FC.Christendom teaches lies!!!They do not teach bible truths....and God gets blamed.

I wouldnt wanna hear that crap either.

But truth is truth.....go examine what bible says.NOT what some jerk on tv is saying.

Even Jesus condemned Pharissees and they thought they had true beliefs.Go read what Jesus called them.You are from your father the devil.

Jesus exposed their crap.They killed him for that.....they let a criminal go before him.....why....cos he exposed their lies etc.

Christendom will pay soon.....Examine your beliefs...not your social bingo games or how you dress etc!!!Or your stature with the town!!Again Jesus said "I never knew you"...when they think they were doing right thing.

Jesus said, The greatest commandment of all is to love your neighbor as yourself.  Imagine, if everyone loved everyone else as much as they loved themselves, all good things for making this a better world would fall into place.  I don't think this will ever happen in this world because most of mankind is too selfish.  They don't love their fellow man; they want what their fellow man has.  But we can always start with ourselves.  Any show of love is not in vain.

What do you think needs to be done?
People are on the right track with getting rid of Obama. But how can we do that before 2016? In the mean time, our economy just keeps continuing to slide deeper in the hole. I feel pretty helpless in trying to stop a runaway train.

I have to laugh at how Obama is the scapegoat for many.First off i dont support politicians.But do you really think anyone else is going to straighten out the messs?

I actually think Obama has more humility than some of the other men.And i have an affordable healthcare policy because of him now.

My point is NO matter who is in office people will always complain.But as i said they need a scapegoat and i am sure many dont like him cos hes half black too.

:) Restore God and Patriotism.  :)

You would be surprised how much of God and Patriotism is in this country. FC is not the only site I visit. I go to political sites and religion and patriotism plays a large part in some debates.

For the person who said get rid of guns...do you really believe other countries who want to rule the world would get rid of their guns? Do you really believe drug dealers and other criminals would get rid of their guns? Why do you think serial numbers are filed off most guns that criminals own?

I would rather own a gun so I can protect myself and family than to allow someone to come into my home and steal my belongings, attack or murder my family, than to just sit there and allow them to do it.

To improve this country we need better informed voters. The world? More freedom and capitalism.

Slavery and stealing the native people's land?

If you MUST focus on the 'negatives' of the founding of the USA, please refrain from asserting such as 'founding doctrines' as neither of those you state are factual or accurate as you imply. If one cares to do some research, they will find that most of the US physical land was 'owned by no one! Native tribes constantly warred over territorial dominion but never claimed 'ownership', only rights to exploit whatever resources that were there. Those few areas that were claimed to be 'owned' were paid for in almost all circumstances in one form or another. Face the facts, native Americans were truly stone age civilizations in the trues sense of the term. That being a fact, what or how else would you have dealt with them? Sheer armed conquest and genocide was readily possible and probably considered. (In later days in the west it was covertly exercised to some degree) So I suggest that your first point is little more than a 'straw dog' postulate.

As to slavery, it was certainly in no way a 'founding doctrine' of the nation. Study your history and you will find that at the earliest points plans were put in place to deal the elimination of this practice, only later to be ignored. Much of true history of the slavery issue has been intentionally forgotten, I can only speculate why but with intentional research you can still find the truth of the matter. I am not defending slavery or making excuses for its being part of the history of the US, but please don't claim that is one of the founding doctrines of this country, at best you could state that slavery was an existing issue for which accommodations had to be made.
