Poll: Americans Feel Like Strangers in Their Own Country

ELDER PATRIOT – When asked if they “don’t identify with what America has become,” a resounding 58% of Americans agreed with that statement according to a new Reuters/Ispos poll. 

How could this be in a nation that considers itself a democratic republic?  To a large degree it’s our fault for continuing to elect people who have a track record of ignoring our wishes and their campaign promises, established law, and the Constitution.

Today’s headline on the Drudge Report illustrates how President Obama refuses to recognize the safety concerns of 92% of the people he was elected to protect who consider radical Islamic terrorism a serious threat to our country.


Speaking in Kuala Lampur President Barack Obama vowed Saturday that his country will be a welcoming place for millions fleeing violence around the world “as long as I’m president.”

The president didn’t have the courage to say that in front of an American audience knowing the optics would be damaging to what’s left of his legitimacy.

This blatant disregard for the safety of Americans is a violation of existing immigration law and exposes a cavalier attitude when it comes to who will be paying for it. 

For fifty years liberal Democrats and establishment centrist Republicans have been working together to give your money and your children’s place in college to Blacks as a means to leveling the playing field.  The result is the Black Lives Matter protests about perceived grievances that cannot be proven, that we’re now seeing on college campuses.   In what proves to be a display of hypocrisy, President Obama has voiced his approval of their movement.

Among their demands, Black Lives Matter demand “safe places” where they can congregate in a segregated manner.  The president offers no such support for our larger society when they demand he enforce existing immigration law – some of which he signed – and, at least, attempt to make America a “safe place” for all its citizens.

For years many of us have seen enough of the Democrats’ political positions to fear they were really communists masquerading as Democrats in order to get elected.  Sadly, we are being proven to be correct as even most Republicans have joined them in making America unrecognizable and uncomfortable for most of its citizens and making the words of Norman Thomas from the early part of last century eerily accurate:

“The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of “liberalism,” they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

For those Democrats who want to believe things will be different with a Hillary Clinton presidency consider her support for President Obama’s open borders policy:

“Let’s be clear: Islam is not our adversary. Muslims are peaceful and tolerant people and have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism.”

She has also stated her support of the president’s unconstitutional Deffered Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA) program that gives out amnesty to illegal immigrant parents of “anchor babies” born in the United States.  Mrs. Clinton promises; “I will fight for DAPA.”

If you feel like a stranger in your own country now, just wait you ain’t seen nothin’ yet.
