Tonight we asked the question is America in decline.
Many people say yes.
You have said it is off that are dramatically.
As Glenn Beck.
Used to spend an hour every night on fox from the studio actually saying that that survival of our republic hangs in the balance and wondering if we -- Will close the book on America.
Leaving little spikes that we're gonna close yes I'm quoting you here real close the book on America owns the ban on hold that -- -- everything -- -- clear exploit our library have a choice I mean John you know and his wealth I do you look at the numbers use common sense you see where we're headed.
We're a country that is.
It is damn near insane in major cities and in Washington DC and detached from everything.
That we used to hold dear detached from everything we hold.
-- -- -- -- this New York City if you bet have you been prince has set against it -- book borrowers to promote ultimatum violated know if you saw the occupy wall -- united none of your column tiny fraction of America.
They aren't -- aren't going -- -- well our best -- they aren't any.
-- -- -- -- Tiny fraction of America.
But you just said we're also going broke yes we've got the big you have that you have slices of just about everything we're we're losing.
We are not holding ourselves responsible.
And no one is holding anyone in Washington responsible we're making progress we're going in the right direction but coming this September or November.
We have a choice and I don't think I've ever seen a clear choice in November we -- -- I don't think I've ever seen a clear choice.
I'm not around -- supporter.
But the still with the -- guys it's still a stark choice.
Which path are we going to go on so one path teaching dependency.
The road to serfdom right the other path a slower road to surf the a longer road to serve them but.
-- least we will recognize that the road to serfdom.
Serfdom is right around the corner it's right around the corner you taken all the way to the lemonade stands where they're trying to squeeze that out of us.
Make sure you come to the government make sure -- how long it took to get a lemonade stand in New York I saw -- is lower than sixty days and I never -- here yeah.
What is that about.
We're teaching our children all the wrong things.
And -- I'm glad you what you're doing what you're doing here running a national lemonade stand and bake sale because some cities are -- bake sales.
In a hug a Thon today can't hug and he but he ignored school what are we -- Really John is it really bad that our kids are hugging.
No it's not that Americans are hugging is that our kids are doing things beyond hugging that we don't even want we.
In the 1990s we -- oral sex doesn't matter.
Yes it -- we're finding out that yes or before we go to oral sex with effect that hugging you're talking about these these schools that -- band.
Have told colleagues told my age don't hug each other and already -- bloggers are being told the head of the teacher's union told me.
That he tells teachers don't put -- crying child in your lap to comfort her even in kindergarten never -- -- -- Because of fear of lawsuits -- of accusations and I was -- who we are.
Is that we are well.
But is that also wasn't teachers were molesting kids -- -- -- molesting kids I think I'd like get -- artists.
It's worth -- -- I think that it's worse are you saying it's better.
Because we're not hugging really know I think some people still do -- people fight back.
-- look here's the point.
We're teaching people not to connect with others.
Teaching instead of getting sued don't reach out for a child who is seriously.
And hugged them and comfort and that's who we are -- certainly agree and then it was the bake sale rule about.
To keep people from getting fat.
Eliminate -- the -- out of -- lot about someone with I think so it's not about control and it's calling people it's about controlling people if people who do who -- the banks at what is the big help teach.
It teaches that we if we come together looked on you do what you do you -- make a great pie guy make a great -- -- come together can we have this charity that we want to help.
So we'll get together and we'll be friends and will do it ourselves -- if we can't do little simple things like that will then we're gonna need somebody else to do for us.
Don't use your skills come and you'll have to you'll have to fill all the paperwork that you could raise money for that that's -- -- we are -- -- and I don't think we have it sweeping.
Of death -- poison from lemonade from six funerals -- We agree these rules are disgusting but -- most people work around the kids still have -- lemonade stands.
Nobody arrested me of course they have cameras outside the F.
An -- -- -- -- but you've told entered a politic I don't know I don't think we'll survive 2016.
I don't think -- we will only few years from now.
Do you think we're gonna make it on this on this track they were -- I think in 2030 will be bankrupt and suffer great argument I think the -- it will survive today.
But that I mean I just I look at it still like Hitler.
You've been watching you want to what's gone on in Europe.
Yes OK they told me two years ago was insane that Nazis would get any kind of power in Greece two years ago crazy.
They now have 6%.
That power at some six -- 8% of Americans believe in ghosts what -- and longer -- bear -- -- do -- Miller went to fears that 6%.
Two years ago it was point 03%.
That that Nazis had any kind of approval rating.
Seventy years ago the Nazis killed 10% of the Greek population.
Now their children and the grandchildren are going -- -- not have an answer the problem is is.
There's no reason there's no logic being used.
And if that's the case if people's continue to use their power in continue to abuse people's money their tax dollars and run us into.
Into an incredible debt.
As Europe goes so will we.
People listen to the extremes that's not a good idea.
And you were anticipating riots from the extremes and violence in the street still do.
I mean he's our he's 160.
No I think we'll have I think we'll have real problems in the streets in.
Around the election.
I think -- this year.
We already have how many murders do we have an Occupy Wall Street -- -- six we just dismiss that how much damage.
Things -- -- you're having given year ago Omer product by -- 66 people were murdered six apple have been murdered last.
But the murder rate is down in America the teen pregnancy rate is down.
School violence is down that's a good.
Super Tuesday it would this is your question is American decline again and I and pushing back I'm not so sure if this were financially.
Going broke but in other ways morally you -- well morally.
I think we are in.
Trouble because our system is pushing.
The opposite direction on what made us great what made -- great was merit.
-- -- strong individual that has an idea and you say I'm gonna go out and do it.
On that note Glenn Beck thank you for coming up --
