Has America become the land of the special interest and home of the double standard? For many it has. Here is a review of current events. Make your own decision.
If we lie to the Congress, it’s a felony. If the Congress lies to us it’s just politics. If we dislike a black person, we’re racist. If a black dislikes whites, it’s their First Amendment right.
The government spends millions to rehabilitate criminals and they do almost nothing for the victims. In public schools you can teach that homosexuality is OK, but you better not use the word God in the process.
You can kill an unborn child, but it’s wrong to execute a mass murderer. We don’t burn books in America, we now rewrite them. We got rid of the communist and socialist threat by renaming them progressive. We are unable to close our border with Mexico, but we have no problem protecting the 38th parallel in Korea.
If you protest against President Obama’s policies you’re a terrorist or a racist, but if you burned an American flag or George W. Bush’s picture in effigy it was your First Amendment right.
You can have pornography on TV or the Internet, but you better not put a nativity scene in a public park during Christmas. We have eliminated all criminals in America; they are now called sick people. We can use a human fetus for medical research, but it’s wrong to use an animal for drug research to cure a disease.
We take money from those who

or making a credit card purchase, but we can’t ask suspicious “illegal
aliens” to produce a valid I.D. to verify their status or identify
We explain away individuals who steal classified and
secret communications and distribute them to the press, but can’t hold
the press or individuals libel for participating in this
life-threatening treachery to our country and armed forces personnel.
applaud confiscatory taxation and regulation on those who work hard,
run an enterprise and play by the rules, then reward drug addicts,
slackers, welfare cheats and bums with “benefits” they did not earn to
continue their corrupt lifestyles … and call this whole process “social
justice” or welfare for the so-called disadvantaged and poor of society.
Wesley Snipes goes to jail for tax evasion, while Democratic
Congressman Charles Rangel, who was indicted 20 times for fraud and
evasion, gets a mild censure and no jail time from Congress. And you
wonder why the U.S. Congress is held in deep contempt with a 20 percent
approval rating from U.S. taxpayers and voters.
What has happened to the land of the free and home of the brave?
The answer: America has become a welfare state based on deviant behavior, questionable morals and situation ethics.
