    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    You are an idiot if you believe Christmas is about Christ. It may be more about Christ for you but society as a whole, nope.

    Bow to the God of BUY BUY BUY!

    Carry on, little Eichmanns.
    Your chosen thread title: This is not a Christian Nation.
    Your argument?
    1) This nation may have been founded on Christian principles.
    2) Special interests (aren't we all special interests?) know how to use God as a political wedge.
    3) Christmas...what? It is not about the birth of Christ...it is about Amazon.

    A substantial number of people who started this country came from Christian European nations. How could they not carry forward the influences they grew up with? The Framers were a mixed lot comprising a wide variety of religious beliefs. All were generally Christian in nature. Some may have been atheists. Some were Deists. Does it matter?

    The United States is not a Christian nation. Granted. We have a secular nation by design. It is informed by Judeo-Christian values. Today we have tens of millions of people whose belief system focuses on equality and socialism. We are losing the nation.

    And then you turn to anti-capitalism. I believe this is your go-to screed. It is boring. You are boring.

    It was founded on Christian laws. If it wasn't you wouldn't have the rights you have left. Is it now, no far from it.

    Be that as it may, it doesn't resemble a Christian nation now.

    Correct because freedom of speech, have arms, and religious freedom comes from the Bible. There are people who call themselves Christians today that want to limit or outlaw these among others. They think they know more than the Bible and reject for their own understanding. The founders knew this was important.

    Yes. The Democrat Party imported 50 million, poor, dumb, and sick black and brown people from third world, mostly non-Christian authoritarian nations. It had an impact. It is time to reverse course. End almost all immigration for at least a decade. Two decades would be even better. Assimilate the people the Democrats brought here. Get them off welfare.

    Captain Obvious will give pasta and glue gifts this year and will be hated for it. While opening his pasta art he will wish for a new Honda. Sucks to be Captain Obvious.

    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.
