    Americans Largely Silent As Their Nation Is Systematically Destroyed

    Yesss

    It seems, where I live and online as well, as soon as I say the words "more conservative" I get a bunch of crap. Apparently, it's a horrid thing to be more conservative. I get everything about Bush and blah blah blah. Doesn't mean I agree with him! ...

    It's Crazy!

    I am a liberal democrat and I live in Texas. So most people around here don't agree with my views. A kid at my high school asked me who I voted for in the election, so of course I said Barack Obama. He then said, "You support abortion!" And I said no but I believe...

    New Work Site

    My employer recently moved me to another facility. With a new work environment comes new co-workers, management and tempo of work. I am quite liberal. I'm open about it too. Naturally, there is a clique of people who don't have my background and listen to Limbaugh. The radio...
