    Good article.

    I often question how we will ever return to anything close to being united as a people of one nation. We don't have to agree on everything, but there should be some fundamental beliefs we share or it's over.

    Education, leftist media and politicians are forces of evil working to destroy the country as you know it.

    too many complacent citizens will either have to wake up to what’s happening or stay asleep while it is transformed into something none of us will like

    He is correct.

    The American experiment will soon be over; come next January or four years from then.

    When I started hanging out here some years ago, many of us saw this coming. Most though, and certainly I, 10 or even 5 years ago, didn't think it would happen so quickly. Middle of the century, maybe, most of us thought; it would take awhile, to erode freedoms and liberty, bit by bit, and replace the Republic with a European style socialist country.

    Boy, we sure missed the boat.

    Instead, it seems in the last 2-3 years there has been what...a paradigm shift? Half the country is now actively trying to destroy it, rather than "improve" it.

    I'll be sorry to see it go. It's been fun. And it's been a good thing for both those who seek it (and their own) destruction as well as for the rest of the world. Do they actually not realize this? Or is it we who have failed to realize that they are actually nihilists?

    Truly, some people just want to see the world burn. I think it really is that simple.

    These folks and the rest of the world will suffer greatly when America and Americans as we knew them are gone.

    Meh. I believe that the media and a vocal few have been made to seem like a "movement" and bigger in numbers than they really are. The far leftist views have been made to seem far more "normalized" than they really are. And this is regardless of race.

    I still think the overwhelming majority of Americans want to live their lives in peace, with a stable job (with prospects for upward mobility and future gens of their family to be better off than they are), while enjoying the standard of life that being an American brings.

    The biggest two threats to the republic are liberal indoctrination in schools and media bias.

    What unites us any more? Not religion. Not adherence to the Constitution or any laws you don't like.

    All the bad things existed before, but now those in power have made it into law, or at least ignoring punishment for illegalities they like (illegal alien sanctuary cities, FISA abuses and unmasking of opponents, forcible takeovers of city blocks).

    As you say, even the lefties will eventually feel the pain. But of course they will blame anyone and anything but themselves and their policies (or lack thereof) as the cause.
