You know, I keep hearing this "once great nation" phrase a lot. What exact time period are you referring to?

For most of the 1800s, we had smaller government and a more religious populace but we still had slavery and women couldn't vote.
So, I'm just curious at what point in time America met your "Christian" ideal.
"Chaos... isn't a pit. Chaos is a ladder. Many who try to climb it fail and never get to try again. The fall breaks them.
And some are given a chance to climb, but they refuse. They cling to the realm, or the gods, or love. Illusions.
Only the ladder is real. The climb is all there is."
