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.

I can only speak for myself. I'm not afraid of this country "changing" it's the way I see it going, change unto itself is neither good nor bad. Many of the changes are, in my opinion, are very bad.

It's not that we're scared, we talk a lot about it before deciding, and decide at the proper time.

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??

What is that suppost to mean? He has a legit point

Exactly my point... It's changing for the worse and it's getting scarier. We are becoming weaker and weaker as a country when we use to be so powerful.

Whoever wrote this question to begin with should Vote next time, if of age. Vote for those who want to see a good America again, whether they be Democrat or REpublican, or Independent. Only Voters can change anything back.
Report as
Votes only count if what you're fighting for wins.
Report as
@Fredg2013 I agree.
Report as
every vote counts DMC. There is a better chance of winning if you actually fight for it instead of complaining that it won't count. Crowtrobot is right... Look at history. Look at how Hitler started controlling people. It sounds drastic and paranoid but it's worth looking at. There are many similarities. We are becoming a communist country. Freedom and Liberty are no longer rights as they were before.
Report as
Ha, exactly, however, that's only because the people let the government do it.
Report as
Yep but they are also too scared to start a revolution and fight for their rights because they feel powerless.
Report as
Not me, I wish more people weren't scared, I could actually have support enough to get rid of all these sons of bitches, and bring in honest, hardworking people. I just need support, or hell, I'll support someone else.
Report as
That's what i'm talking about. I'm not one to lead but i'll support someone with the right goal in mind. I've been waiting.

corruption of the government.

It is legally voted government and if you want to change for corruptions don't vote them. If you want to stop corruption then you will have to start from your own self.

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.
