Not complicated. Since about 1960, “educators” changed from education to teaching society’s change from values to subjectivism, from truth and facts to your truth and my truth, no longer beginning the day with pledge of allegiance aprayerwith the 10 commandments posted somewhere. History is re-written ti fit the liberal agenda and taught as truth

Homes without both parents and families not involved in church cause morals and family values to deteriorate and crime to rise.

Since the Biden Administration has been in office, the Dems have gone wild! They want lawlessness, riots, burning, looting, shooting. They don’t believe in the rule of law, only when Republicans do something that doesn’t agree with their agenda, then they make sure they enforce the law. This one-sided tyranny must come to an end. It’s totally unfair, & innocent people have their reputations ruined for no reason at all. Just look at the J6 debacle-so many innocent people have been incarcerated for no reason-only that they attended the Washington D.C. demonstration to oppose the illegal vote which took place back on Nov.3, 2020. This should have never happened! But there is a lot of evil in our government and so until we get rid of the evil, we’ll have to put up with it.

The idiots who want to defund the police have gotten what they asked for. Now how do you get those same police to return to their jobs when NOTHING has changed??!! And the pro BLM and Antifa rioters from the summer of 2020 who killed 30plus people are still not prosecuted!!

We dont need more prisons. Folks that have committed crimes that put them in prison are either soon released to pick up where they left off or, those that make it to death row sit there for YEARS before the states actually put them to death. A common excuse for that is the cost. Vicious circle. Surviving victims and their families continue to suffer while the predator enjoys 3 meals a day, and other comforts…not too bad for a criminal. Guns? Well, guns dont kill. People kill.

Very interesting. Too many guns 78. You wouldn’t think so by watching the main stream media and all the politicians on the left.

Build more prisons and equip Police Departments with huge, enormous paddy wagons. Haul their asses off to jail and prisons.

Agree, haul off the DA’s as well and any judge who doesn’t follow the law! Lets go back to chain gangs! You break the law… you loose ALL your rights and you will work for your food n bed. Road repairs, trash pick up, city maintenance ect. If they try and do anything stupid, shoot them dead. Extreme measures must be enforced to get their attention!

Not enough firearms in the hands of law-abiding citizens. When under attack you are the first responder.

The “White supremacy” that the left keep referring to is trump supporters. The democrat party is the insurrectionists, they are the ones that are violating our constitution, just look at our southern border for an example, Joe Biden should be tried for treason.

The problem is the “stand down” orders to the police by the government. Law enforcement is not being allowed to do its’ job. Law and order no longer exist.

DRUGS ALONG WITH PEOPLE WITH HUGE MENTAL PROBLEMS HAVE BEEN THE MAIN PROBLEMS. GUNS THEMSELVES DO NOT KILL . . .IT IS PEOPLE THAT HAVE HUGE MENTAL PROBLEMS ALONG WITH A BACKGROUND OF DRUGS . . .THAT DO THE KILLING OF INNOCENT MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN. DON’T CLOSE MENTAL FACILITIES AS PRES. CARTER DID IN THE 70’S. THERE SHOULD BE A MENTAL HEALTH FACILITY IN EVERY COMMUNITY IN THIS COUNTRY

The vast majority of people that have mental illness don’t hurt anyone, or steal. The vast majority of people that use drugs dont either.

IT’S “IMPOSSIBLE” TO FIND EVERY “MENTAL CASE” OR EVERY “CRIMINAL” WHO HAVE “ILLEGAL WEAPONS” IN OUR AMERICA OF OVER 350 MILLION PEOPLE. EVERY FAMILY AND EVERY SCHOOL AND EVERY CHURCH AND EVERY BUSINESS, MUST HAVE THEIR “OWN” “PROTECTION”. STARTING WITH LOCKING ALL DOORS AT “EVERY” “SCHOOL” AND HAVING “ARMED OFFICERS” BEHIND THOSE DOORS. IF THERE IS A “NUT”, WHO WANTS TO HARM OUR KIDS, THEY WILL “NOT” BE ABLE TO WALK INTO ANY SCHOOL AND START SHOOTING! WE MUST STOP THE “NUT CASES” BY FORCE, BECAUSE “PRETENDING” THAT THEY CAN BE “FIXED”, IS A COMPLETE JOKE! “AN EYE FOR AN EYE” IS THE ONLY WAY TO STOP THESE “MURDERERS”. I CAN ONLY SAY THIS AGAIN…. WOULD WE SEND OUR “SOLDIERS TO WAR, WITHOUT A GUN?” ABSOLUTELY NOT! THIS IS WHY WE MUST UTILIZE OUR OFFICERS TO BE AT EVERY SCHOOL “ARMED”. SOON, EVEN THE “NUT” CASES WILL HEAR THAT “NO ONE” WILL EVER BE ABLE TO ENTER OUR SCHOOLS” AND RANDOMLY MURDER OUR TEACHERS AND KIDS, EVER AGAIN….. AND EVER COME OUT “ALIVE!” EVEN “NUTS”, KNOW WHAT BEING “DEAD” MEANS! WE CAN’T “FIX” THESE SITUATIONS BY “TAKING AWAY” INNOCENT PEOPLE’S GUNS, FOR THE SAKE OF THE CRIMINALS! WE HAVE ALLOWED “SICKOS” AND “CRIMINALS” TO KEEP THEIR “ILLEGAL GUNS” AND “WRITE ANOTHER USELESS LAW” ON A PIECE OF PAPER AND “FILE IT” IN A CABINET …..”NEVER” TO BE “READ” BY ANY “NUT” CASE!
THESE POLITICIANS, ARE “PLAYING GAMES” WITH ALL OF “OUR LIVES” … STARTING WITH “TAKING AWAY” OUR “2ND AMENDMENT”……. WHILE THEY, “KEEP THEIR SECURITY” WHO “CARRY THEIR GUNS” TO PROTECT THE “TRASH” OF “HUMAN LIFE”! WE MUST NEVER “BLAME” THE “GUN”. BECAUSE, AS WE ALL KNOW, “NO GUN” CAN “PULL” IT’S OWN “TRIGGER”! WE MUST STOP THESE “CORRUPT” “POLITICIANS” FROM “TAKING AWAY” OUR ONLY DEFENSE, AS HUMAN BEINGS! THEY ARE THE “MURDERERS” BY ALLOWING OUR INNOCENT CHILDREN AND TEACHERS, TO BE “WITHOUT” “ARMED PROTECTIONS”! GOD HELP US ALL TO BE RID OF THOSE WHO ARE “MENTALLY UNSTABLE” …… STARTING WITH THOSE “SICK” CORRUPT POLITICIANS”!

How could you possibly pick one? They all are factors in the weakening and decline of our republic. The thing to keep in mind is this is intentional. Joe Biden is merely a puppet ordered to carry forward Obama’s promise to “fundamentally change America”, which many well intended voters thought would be for the better. The intent is to make all dependent on the government so the elite ruling class, the oligarchy, can maintain power and control while their subjects have less freedom, restricted upward mobility and greater dependency on the government.

The left is intentionally orchestrating this to destroy our Democratic Republic.This is easy to see if you read all l the books the commies have written in the last 50 years bragging about their plan.

I agree that values are instilled at home. But at one point, children become influenced by those outside their homes. The actions of others become enticing. Once enticed it’s hard to go back, particularly with no consequences. Fear of consequences is instilled at home too. With no consequences, opportunities abound despite good intentions of parents, Going back to those family instilled values is harder and harder, particularly when one considers the families.

The majority of the crime is happening in democrat run cities. The politicians in these places know they will be perpetually elected so they don’t care. Lobbyists are actually doing more to harm voters than anything. Here in Kentucky the bourbon industry lobbyists gave the Kentucky senators 8.5 million dollars to keep marijuana illegal. The Kentucky Republican lead senators will not even vote on marijuana and refuse to let the people vote on it.

I totally agree James! I live here in KY and have been sick of the RINO’S in our General Assembly. Beshear and Coleman should’ve been impeached in their first year in office. These RINO’S didn’t even bring up a vote on it! And yes, you hit the nail on the head about the alcoholic beverage distillers controlling the vote, or lack of votes about medical marijuana. KY will never allow it. I’ve been fighting my Cancer for at least 7 years that I know of. I, because of the lack of action by the General Assembly or the Governor, am stuck having to use opioids to control my pain. Which I hate to use, but I can’t tolerate the pain sometimes.

What’s wrong with keeping marijuana illegal?
I’m not saying it was done correctly however, I live in Colorado… Not one thing has gotten better! But by golly, we have stinky pot farms everywhere… pot stores, it seems, on every corner! Crime rate up! Unemployment still up… hmm ???? go figure!!! Just say NO!

Law enforcement has become a joke and the law breakers are laughing . Selective enforcement and prosecution had destroyed the system. The lack of support of our men in blue by politicians is deplorable .

Biden is so dumb he can’t understand that the whole world is laughing at him! He is a severe liability and an embarrassment to our country.
