Yes, America has problems now, but try to remember that we are a very young country, barely over 200 years old. We can remember our grandparents' European accents.

This whole teaparty thing is about one thing: fiscal responsibility. Do not doubt that Americans can turn this whole thing debt crisis around, and will - shortly. it is more about free trade than anything else.

I think you forget who was on the other side of the slave trade, yes Muslim Arabs, so don't get so high and mighty. And, Muslims still allow slavery now. We do not.

It took 60 years after our country rebelled against Britian to eliminate slavery completely. It took many years to come up with our constitution, 14 years, in fact, to get it ratified. WHY? Because the fight over slavery. Many wanted to ban it outright. George Mason, the famous founding father, refused to sign it because it did not outrightly do so, only hinted at it with "..all men are created equal.." - the sentence bombshell that made it only a matter of time before it was outlawed by the Supreme Court.

Our country is about to steer itself hugely toward the libertarian side, which means less foreign involvement, less government totally, hence less corruption. When we do, you will see America strong again.

We CAN change, unlike others who are stick in the 7th century. We can correct our mistakes. We can have a Renaissance. Can you, O Muslim?
