The new America

The new America is much like the Middle East, with no borders between Syria and Iraq and no borders between the USA and Mexico.

Have we become the new Caliphate of the United States of Mexico? The governments of the Middle East and ours are much alike in that they welcome ISIS and we welcome drug lords.

We don’t have laws of the land anymore, only laws of the day that the emperor chooses to enforce. The America that you knew and loved 40 or 50 years ago doesn’t live here anymore.

Perhaps the American Constitution needs to be rewritten and become more politically correct so fewer minorities will be offended and we can all speak Spanish or Farsi.

America could become a Muslim nation and a mosque might replace a church near you.

Did your vote reflect the ideals of your church and your faith, or even the ideals of what you would like America and your neighborhood to be?

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
