Why does Florez consistently call for destruction of traditional American values? He seems to long for America to be turned into a European style post Christian socialist state.

Our Founding Fathers had backbones where it appears many people today have a wishbone. Theirs was not an age of spin but of spine; not of tolerance but rather a tea-thrown-in-the-harbor toughness for which they most certainly paid a price. They lost their families, property and lives but we, in our can’t-be-bothered stupor, are paying a price as well: we have lost our minds, and along with it, our backbone, our tongue and, in the process, we are sacrificing truth and freedom.

Caler la voile, we have lowered the sail rather than nailing our colors to the mast.

Like the Liberty Bell, though cracked when first rung after arrival in Philadelphia summoning lawmakers and citizens alike to the public reading July 8, 1776 of the Declaration of Independence, Americans are summoned again this and every July 4 to herald a message that still rings true:

To get involved.

In fact it is quite unlikely that justice will prevail, or truth will be spoken, or declarations signed unless we are vexed and incensed about the injustice or deceitfulness or wrong that should give us no rest until we roll up our sleeves to make it right.

So working together and community service that Florez talks about here is now "post christian socialist" according to JCS.

I challenge you to read the scriptures and shut off the radio for a while.

@John Charity Spring:
"Why does Florez consistently call for destruction of traditional American values? He seems to long for America to be turned into a European style post Christian socialist state."

Perhaps he's teaming up with Barack Hussein Obama to bring Christianity, and thus, the American dream to a close.
