A decent society, not a great one

Posted

Mitt Romney says he wants to restore America to "greatness." Does greatness mean a bloated military budget as was the case in Vietnam and Iraq? Rather than a supposed great society, I would rather see a decent society, a society where abortion is rare, where people turn away from their adultery and fornication and greed.

What we need in America is a heartfelt, true nationwide repentance, but I don't think that either candidate is heading us there.
