What Happened to Our Virtues, America?

Lying. How often does this occur in our society? How many lies do you tell a day? How many lies do you hear? How many times are you told something, when you know for a fact that they know that it is a lie … by your parents, your boss, your superiors, the government, television, society?  We know in our gut things are not right. We know that there is money being pilfered, stolen and misdirected, and many times we know that our lives have less truth than we would like them to have. It’s affecting our society, our laws, our religion and our principles. How many mistruths do you sell? And at what Cost?

Where corruption is done on every local level, and no-one speaks out for truth, liberty or justice for all. What kind of America am I living in right now?  What happened to our virtues?
