Reference Frank Batavick's recent article "America is already great." Compared to a third world, or a totalitarian state we are great, but compared to the America of 1945 to 2008, we are not. Batavick writes, "ISIS can't hold a candle to the Nazis." President Roosevelt called the Nazis evil and blew out their candle less than four years after Pearl Harbor. Ronald Reagon called Communist Russia evil and blew out their candle by 1989. Today, 15 years after we were attacked by Muslim terrorists, their candle still burns because Obama is more concerned about offending Islam than defeating the Muslim jihadists. This clearly shows how America has declined compared to America in the 20th century.

Frank said "demographically, we grow stronger each day with our liberal immigration policy. This has blessed us with the world's most diverse population." Diversity and the political correctness that has metasized from it is the liberal dogma, and is tearing our country apart. People used to come to America to assimilate into our society and culture to become Americans. Today, instead of integrating/assimilating into our society, people that come here are encouraged by progressive 501c3 organizations and liberal politicians to embrace their ethnic origins and reject assimilation. Our national motto is e-pluribus-unum, Latin for "out of many one," but the liberal dogma has replaced assimilation with separation while bestowing special treatment based on ethnicity.

America is becoming a Totalitarian (one political group maintains complete control) nation controlled by the liberal left. Our First Amendment Rights are being suppressed and what happened to these entrepreneurs could happen to you. Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty; Brendan Erich, CEO of Mozilla; and Dan Cathy, president of Chick-fil-A simply said "they support the traditional family." The liberal media/politicians/activist groups brutally attacked them as bigots and had Robertson suspended and Erich fired. The mayors of Chicago, Rahm Emanuel (ex-Obama White House chief of staff) and San Francisco, Edwin Lee, said Chick-fil-A is not welcome in their cities because they discriminate against LGBT people and their values are not Chicago or San Francisco values. What are their values? Chicago had 3,000 people shot in 2015 and San Francisco (sanctuary city) protects illegal felons. Now we have police officers being assassinated in our cities because of the Black Lives Matter movement and the liberal politicians are too intimidated to even criticize them. America is clearly in decline.
