Is The American Spirit Broken Beyond Repair?

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


A sobering post from New York Post columnist Michael Goodwin fears the once great American Spirit is no longer so…



(via New York Post)


The American spirit is breaking


The official opening of the 9/11 museum brought President Obama to New York and sparked fresh reminders of the horror of that awful day. The president called the site ­“sacred” and gave a moving speech about the American spirit, saying, “Like the great wall and bedrock that embrace us today, nothing can ever break us.”


It is the right thing to say and the right place to say it. But is it true? Is the American spirit really unbreakable?


I have my doubts.


…Because this retreat from rigor in favor of cultural “social promotion” is playing out in a million different ways in our vast society, the world sees that America is going soft and embracing decline. A loss of respect for our nation is now nearly universal. No wonder: If we don’t respect our own ideals, why should others?  LINK




And there it is.  The progressive/regressive left in America has so beaten down the history and heritage of this country, it no longer resembles anything beyond a sick, bent shadow of its former self.  Wanting to work hard and get ahead is called greed.  Believing in personal responsibility and liberty is called mean/uncaring, or in some cases, racist and/or bigoted.

      That’s what we want y’all to think….

      Those whose ancestors developed such an “american spirit” have failed in upholding its Godliness, which is necessary for this peoples future, wherever in the world their LORD has scattered them. This is but a metaphor, for what has happened to this people all over the planet and continuously through history. We do know this shall be the last time, Edom and the beast shall be punished at last, Praise and thanks to THE GOD OF HEAVEN, whose footstool is earth! Praise Jesus Christ!
