“Nothing Sacred in America”


Nothing Sacred in America!

American’s live today in a world where nothing is sacred. We live in a world where aliens know our history better than we do. The majority of Americans, including myself, don’t know the details of the Constitution, Bill of Rights, and Declaration of Independence, but aliens do. Americans don’t take anything sacred anymore.

Nothing is sacred in America when its national symbol, a symbol of hope to millions doesn’t hold her weight. “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddle masses yearning to breathe free…” has given way to Americans wanting to close the border. America wants to turn on the ideals that made this country once proud.

Where is the pride in a country where we fight a war because the leader’s father was threatened? Where is that sacred pride when America becomes the thing it’s fighting? When we America turns their life, liberty and pursuit of happiness over to government to feel a better sense of security. They do it without questioning the inherit dangers this possesses. Because questioning these things means to be unpatriotic. Americans are turning over their individuality of to be apart of the masses.

Nothing is sacred in America when defending the ideals of this national can polarize it. When patriotic defense of this nation’s ideals is met with terrorist reaction; are we really up holding those principles. Should we as Americans leave other nations to govern themselves and prepare our readiness. When the country has to advertise, “support our troops” and then treat them like garbage when they are injured in defense of these ideals.

America doesn’t emphasize, see the country; but follow its leaders. The same leaders that have degraded the ideals set forth by Adams, Livingston, Sherman, Jefferson and Franklin and substituted them for another “Benjamin”. Where are these sacred ideals when running for president means raising enough special interest money?

Nothing in America is sacred when you can’t beat questions supposedly that 5th graders should know. What was once apple pie, baseball, and family cookouts has given way to McDonalds, steroids, and eating in front of the television.

Where is the sacredness, when we turn catching criminals into entertainment; when will the execution of their punishment become entertainment. Has America really fallen that far by the waist side? What can American do to recover from this, or is this the modern America, devoid anything sacred but ready to push its agenda on others.
