Because this country use to be amazing. Other parts of the world were jealous of our freedom and scared of our military. It is not like that anymore. People who know how great it was at one time know how bad it is now and it's only getting worse. That's why it's scary.
It depends on what it's changing into! I am 71 yrs old, and have seen many changes. Lately, America's economy credit rating was Triple A Plus; Now it is Double A Minus. That means when the Fed Govt borrows more money, the interest is higher, and the Fed are borrowing 40 cents for every dollar it spends. The US Treasury is spending more money every day than it takes in from taxes, etc. The Obama people have put 4000 new regulations on Small Businesses, causing them to close, or lay off people. These are only a few of the changes in the last 5 years, which I don't lilke. And, now, he wants to downsize our Military to that of a 3rd. world country. China will be the next economic power on Earth, not America. Are these the changes you like??
America is made up of the Native Americans and people who got away from other countries experiencing "change".........ex: England - corrupt Monarchy was "changing" laws all the time......Russia - revolution "changed" to a evil government....... Germany - new group called the Nazis wanted to "Change" the world
I don't see the people as afraid of change its more people can't agree on how to change. People need to stop thinking about what's good for them and think about what's good for the country. People came to this country from all over the world and called them selves " Americans". now people born here and immigrating here each want preferred treatment because of their ethnic background, sex, sexual preference, or religion. How can any change for the better be made?
You ever see the movie, Demolition Man? Yeah...that's the direction that I see that we are headed. You can join me in the sewers. But that won't happen because I and many others like me will rise up and keep this country from becoming the pu**fied joke that its becoming today.
Depends on the change. We are changing for the worse. I'm not scared, but I do not like it. This politically correct, nanny government that we're leaning towards is NOT good for America, 16 trillion in debt with leaders like Pelosi and Obama saying we don't have a spending problem.
