You could make a case for chaos

Let’s  return to 1775 when Edmund Burke pointed out a month before Lexington and Concord, that “the (American) people (in Colonial America) are Protestants, and of that kind which is almost adverse to all implicit submission of mind and opinion. ... Religion in “our Northern colonies is a refinement on the principle of resistance.”

No doubt, as a Christian nation, America once championed freedom and free trade. But let’s fast forward to today.  Resistance ( especially from patriots like the Tea Party) seems futile in the face of the imperial, Obama, progressive, repressive Presidency.  You could  make a case for chaos.   As our culture sheds its Christian moorings, drunkenness, drugs, rapes, assaults, murders, tatoos, body piercings, obscene language, even blissful ignorance clothe us anew.  Can’t you make a case for little voices whispering to too many Americans: ‘I don’t want to ponder why; I don’t want to know stuff.’

What do pictures of mass protests in Egypt mean?
