AMERICA IN DECLINE: Blame the Leftist Media

Written by William Pauwels on October 18, 2016

As many know, there have been many stellar nations over the past two millennia. The decline of the USA, like many of the others, is a self-imposed infliction, which an over-educated and ignorant population do not recognize.

Our primary flaw is the fault of a constitutionally protected news media, which is failing to do its job, which is actually driving the political process, our economy, our value system, our culture, and our social structure in a naïve, self-indulgent, immoral, irresponsible direction.

Just critically look at the current election. We have two substandard candidates running for president. One even has a 30-year history of corrupt behavior and gross abuse of government positions of power and influence.

Both have failed to debate the issues and our nation’s political course and values. Instead, their focus has been on sexual behavior – while the world and our nation are coming apart at the seams.

And the news media just keeps orchestrating these side shows as our country races toward the cliff of distraction. This is crazy. Frankly this is beyond rational belief.

Frankly, the news media has failed to keep us on a responsible course and dialogue about the serious issues facing our nation and the world. And its conspiratorial cooperation with the Democrat party and the Clinton campaign are disgraceful and, frankly, disgusting.

As an old man I am saddened to see America declined so significantly in so many ways. I watched it rise out of the anguish of the Depression and the ashes of World War II, only to be gobbled up by an irresponsible, Leftist news media and Socialistic Democrat party.
