O'Reilly: The Unintended Consequences Of A Liberal America
BILL O'REILLY: "I am not an ideologue; in fact, some of the people who attack me the most are far right people on talk radio. If there is a solution on the left, we'll endorse it. But now we're seeing a move to the left that does not bode well. Nearly 50% of American households have someone receiving some kind of social assistance. In order to pay for the entitlements, the nation's yearly deficit is now more than $1-trillion. We simply can not sustain that kind of government spending, yet President Obama and his liberal allies don't seem very concerned. On the social front, the latest stats available show there were 1.2 million abortions performed in the USA in 2008. Should the country be proud of that? Yet we see wild applause when pro-abortion zealots speak at the Democratic Convention. On the drug front, it's a fait accompli that marijuana will be accepted, yet we have a tremendous substance abuse problem here and some people are happy that another intoxicant will be widely available. As far as children are concerned, they can now see and hear the lowest forms of depravity on the Internet, yet public schools are virtually mandated to ignore religion. Should we be celebrating this move to the left? You make the call."
