Is America on an spiral of decline?

after all, there is division, dissent, social unrest, biased media, severe corruption in P.O.T.U.S.'s administration and an over-all melancholia...world unrest!

Has been for awhile. Look at the steady decrease in education. Look at our prison population. Look at the blatant disregard for human life and belongings of others. People want hand outs and the government to take from the rich because it's unfair they are successful. Somehow abortion has become "acceptable". It was supposed to be healthy, rare, etc. Look at Dr. Gossnel, the abortion doctor in Texas and the video about the abortion clinic in New York. There's a disgusting and sickening lack of regard for human life. There are also far too many people not willing to take responsibility for their actions. It's not the country in a downward spiral, it's the citizens.

Why do people hate abortion but love war?

And why do people hate communists but love Robin Hood?

I don't like Robin Hood or communism. I am only in favor of war when it's a necessity to protect our country and its citizens. Abortion is genocide of humans. People want to protect animals, push gun control, etc for the sake of saving/helping people. Yet people won't help and/or support the most vulnerable and helpless life, the unborn child. It sickens me a mother or mother to be can kill her own child. That worries me.

# 13:Please grow up and when you do maybe you'll have something of substance to comment on......subject has no-thing to do with love/war/communists or ROBIN HOOD!!!!!!!!!!!

But if you support war for any reason, you're still supporting the murder of people who in most cases are just defending their homes.

So World War II was unjustified? Countries should have let Hitler take over the world and kill all Jewish and a catholic people? You need your head examined. Instances like World War II isn't killing innocent people, it's protecting people from evil monsters. Abortion is killing a helpless and vulnerable life that hasn't harmed anyone. You are a disturbed person. Turn the argument to war because you have no arguments to oppose mine. Grow up.

Well personally I don't think any human deserves to live, but that's just me. And the rich don't deserve their wealth, at least not the ones who take advantage of the tax code and don't pay their workers a decent wage.

Allmediaiscorrupt, #13 obviously doesn't know nothing; exhibiting no knowledge of anything pertinent; an exiguous mind for sure!!!

No. You don't know anything. You say you hate war, yet you don't want gun control. You say you hate moochers, when you receive things like Medicare and social security. You're hypocrites yet you refuse to see it.

You seem to have 'all-the-answers' to mitigating traditions, established principles, and current law! WOW...How would know what I receive? Do you know what 'A.S.S.U.M.E. stands for? kiddo, get some years under your belt! note: I did not say I hate war.I did not say I hate moochers; hell, I did not say I hated anything; you seem to like to put words in other people's mouth.

Good answers too , Allmedia !
Report as
So does that mean you like war? Cause that's what it sounds like to me. My point was that conservatives don't care about stuff unless it affects them. You should learn to see things from the perspective of the less fortunate and those you think we should invade.

If you think Fox is the only biased news network you are complete detached from reality. MSNBC and CNN are heavily left wing biased networks. Fox is biased to the right.
Report as
I don't know about CNN, but msnbc is biased.

But fox is the worst.
Report as
Allmediaiscorrupt
Fox isn't the worst. MSNBC is by far the worst. You are sadly brainwashed by the liberal media. Have you considered thinking for yourself?
Report as
I am thinking for myself. Fox News is the worst because they feel no remorse for lying about stuff like gun control and profiling, among others.
Report as
Fox is the best at being the worse. Msnbc just copies Fox so there can be an "opposite" to make money off of the other crowd.
Report as
If it weren't for Fox to call the corrupt what it is, we'd all be led by sheep to the slaughter.
Report as
Yeah, Fox also called out on Mr. Rodgers as being an evil person that manipulates people into being lazy no goods. Not to mention leading that one flock of what did they call themselves again? Birthers?
Report as
Fox News takes things the government does, removes the facts from them, add their own, then broadcast it all over the country to influence weak-minded people into becoming conservative.

The reason Australia isn't in chaos is because they have gun control. Canada, well they're just really well behaved there.

Australia and Canada seem to be doing just fine.

Australia has been having some problems. This thing is spreading and it won't be getting better.

But they haven't had as many shootings since they passed gun control.

Canada is a bad example. Of course when you have a meager, homogenized population sitting on the world's largest stockpile of natural resources that leaves little room for social strife.

A question concerning America has nothing to do with Canada, Australia or the like; why do some folk seem to think shifting topic will do anything relative, except to evade an answer...heck, no one is under oath! by the way..America was an country where people immigrated to for 'religious freedom, a new beginning,.etc; Australia on the other hand was an 'penal colony gor British to place their undesirables.....AGAIN...off topic!!!
Report as
But the fact remains that they're doing quite well because they have liberal policies such as gun control and national healthcare in place. Whereas we aren't doing so well because conservatives won't let us have stuff like that here. And it would also help us get back on our feet if they'd legalize marijuana, because when they do, crime rates will drop and our GDP will skyrocket.
Report as
You completely missed my point. Canada is able to afford "social policies" because they have no defense budget, and have vast natural resources.
Report as
We have even more natural resources than they do. And our defense budget is more than we need. That's our problem.
Report as
We absolutely do not. Canada has larger quantities of oil and timber than any other country in the Western Hemisphere. Along with no defense budget and small population the discrepancy between the two is vast. Our problem is not that our defense budget is too big per se, and whether you like it or not it is necessary, it's that our defense budget includes the defense of other nations including but not limited to: Canada, Israel, and parts of Western Europe.
Report as
Which is stupid. And we do have more resources. We have more people here than they do. We have more land than they do. And we have plenty of oil that we aren't using.
