U.S. is rapidly turning into a paper tiger

In Greek mythology, the Trojan Horse was permitted to enter the city of Troy as a gift with good deeds and wishes; then the backside of the door opened and the true enemy came forth.

The undermining and destruction of the city. A weakness from within; a great power that was destroyed by sleight-of-hand.

The fundamental transforming of America is forming. A decline of moral values. The leader of this country is promoting open drug usage, open homosexuality, cutting the military severely and releasing convicts and child molesters.

The leader, before speaking at Georgetown University, compelled them to cover the cross; also denying Rev. Franklin Graham from speaking at a prayer breakfast.

The leader permitted an openly gay bishop to have Easter prayer at the White House. What’s wrong with that picture?

Nikita Khrushchev, a former leader of the Soviet Union, stated in 1963 we will bury you (U.S.) without firing a shot, that we were a superpower but vulnerable from within due to a decaying of values.

A new bully has emerged on the world stage in Russia. The United States is constantly putting a stick on its shoulder saying I dare you, and it’s constantly being knocked off without consequences. The bully realizes we are becoming a paper tiger. Countries build their armaments while we decline.
