When America Ceases To Be Good America is great because she is good. If America ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.
Alexis de Tocqueville ... Is America a Good Nation? Is she a Great Nation? Let's examine the evidence ... recently we went to war with Iraq and Afghanistan. Iraq had nothing to do with 9-11. Iraq had no Weapons of Mass Destruction and no ties with Al Qaeda. In fact they were enemies. All of this was known before the invasion. Yet the controlled news media did not share these facts with us until after the occupation had become a disaster. So why are we killing so many innocent people and sacrificing the lives of so many of our young soldiers and marines?

The reason why on 9/11 I didn't believe a damn thing they said 9/11 was over six years after the Oklahoma City bombing. We had plenty of time to get the 'alternative' viewpoints ... I certainly remember Retired Brigadier Gen. USAF, Benton K. Partin ... told his side of the OK City 'terrorist' attack and cover up to anyone who would listen ...
General Partin doesn't exist because he is not in Wikipedia ... Our 'government' is trying to turn the greatest mass murder on our shores (911) into a 'day of service' as a diversion to the lies.
