Was it always this bad in America and we just didn't hear about it or care about it? Football icons covering up the rapes of 10- and 12-year-old boys. Mayors, senators and congressman using insider knowledge to feather their own nests. Lobbyists not only pushing for legislation but even writing legislation. Public service unions more interested in wages and pensions than serving the public. Military officers from generals on down lying and covering up atrocities and mistakes. Company CEOs and other top officers awarding themselves tens and hundreds of millions of dollars in bonuses. Banks who lie to their stockholders over and over again. Our Department of Justice not enforcing the federal illegal alien laws that have been on the books for generations. Homeland Security selling guns to the Mexican drug cartels that kill American Border Patrol agents. A First Lady who all of a sudden, before the 2012 election, remembered the sacrifices of our military families. A President who flies to different cities three to four days out of every single week. A President who's pre-election motto is to "lead from behind," don't do anything that you can be held accountable for. Our roads and bridges are crumbling, our power grid is inadequate to handle solar power. Even our churches have become "temples of greed" not "temples of worship." We used to revere our pastors, rabbis, preachers and priests. Now we won't even let our children be alone with them.

What has happened to our Great Nation? What changed?
