I’m really starting to lose the ability to listen to talk radio. Some of it is funny and I agree with it, some of its funny and I don’t agree with it. Most of the time, the guys I listen to, Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck, are entertainers and they keep me entertained.
But I really can’t listen to anyone else anymore without just losing my mind.
A local guy from Nashville filled in for Glenn Beck yesterday, and he made my blood pressure rise to unsafe levels. I believe the topic was illegal immigration and English as the national language. I don’t think we should have a national language because I think its a redundant law, but protectionists don’t think that way (because they aren’t conservatives). Anyway, the conversation somehow turned into we “are too free” and that we have to give up some of our freedoms to save our country.
Let me reiterate that this guy thinks our nation is too free.
That just doesn’t fly with me. I can think of plenty of ways in which we aren’t free.
Suspension of Habeas Corpus
The Patriot Act
Imminent Domain laws
And the list goes on and on. This country was founded on the idea of individual liberty. You can do what you want as long as you don’t infringe on the individual rights of others.
That has changed. And that is what will destroy America. Not terrorists. Not Illegal Aliens. Not Global Warming. Not the Corporations.
The government will eventually destroy this country.
Its sad. My life will continue and I will still be a citizen of the Kingdom of God. But this country has done some great things, and those things will soon come to an end.
