Here's the part that I don't get about the Glenn Beck / Sarah Palin desire to return to a 'time' in American history that was more honourable.

Here's the part that I don't get about the Glenn Beck / Sarah Palin desire to return to a 'time' in American history that was 'more' honourable.

Are they talking about the time ..... :

-when Americans moved west massacring the Native Aboriginal people in the late 1700's and early to mid 1800's?

-when Black persons were held and sold as property (including slave owners such as George Washington and Thomas Jefferson)?

-when the USA split into two warring nations (Confederate States and United States) and hundreds of thousands were killed in the bloody Civil War?

-when the USA contrived a phony crisis in order to seize Spanish holdings in the Western Hemisphere such as Puerto Rico?

-when the USA sat out most of World War One as the British and Canadians fought German and Austro-Hungarian imperialism?

-when the USA allowed child labour?

-when unfettered 'free markets' and corporate greed resulted in the Stock Market crash and global Great Depression?

-when the USA sat out much of World War 2 while Britain and Canada alone battled Nazi Germany?

-when the USA continued its apartheid policies of 'separate but equal' and official segregation well into the 1960's?

-when the USA entered into a disastrous war in southeast Asia that saw hundreds of thousands of innocent Vietnamese and Cambodian citizens killed not to mention all of the young Americans who died?

-when college kids such as those at Kent State were gunned down for daring to demand 'PEACE'!

-when political assassination became the American norm resulting in the killing of John F. Kennedy - Robert Kennedy - Martin Luther King?

-when the USA armed the Afghanistan Islamic militants against the Russians with weapons that are now being used to kill American, Canadian and British troops?

-when the USA fabricated claims of 'weapons of mass destruction' in order to have a reason to invade Iraq?

-when the single largest ongoing reason for personal bankruptcy continues to be inability to pay for medical bills?

I am simply curious. What is the 'more honourable' time in American history that Beck / Palin / and their mindless minions want to return to??? ... just asking!

The time was that magical time during the The Leave It To Beaver tv show

Let's not forget the CIA's brutal exploits in Central and South America 1950+.

North America had it easy in the 1950s and 60s. There were no other industrial powers of significance left in the world aside from us after WWII. Not so any more. The EU, India, China, Korea, Japan... There's far too much competition to return to the easy times of my parents' generation. And energy is getting harder to find, and is more expensive.

Beck and Palin are just making emotional appeals. No real workable policy there.

Hello, just navigated here from Accidental Deliberations. I will be bookmarking...

And then there's the biggest single terrorist act ever, the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki!

Nice to meet you Kim .. and I agree with what you say about Hiroshima and Nagasaki! Hope to hear from you again!
