Each fabulous empire had it peak and then fell like the ones before it. Without this shit we would not have archaeology. Basic fact.
It is audacious, therefore, for this country to imagine it will last forever as the bright shining symbol of all that is good and great on this planet. We refuse or simply fail to see ourselves reflected in the mirror of history. Other countries learn far better from their pasts and accept truths we think were made true at Disney Studios.
As mentioned today in the media: If the only reason for the GOP is to destroy the Dems – a word of warning; they will also fall on their swords and we will have some kind of new and very scary government. Our vaudeville Congress and “partiers” have made us a joke worldwide for our retro revivalist politics, bigotry and narrow views. Step back a little – We are no longer a great nation of hopes and promises kept – we are a nation of angry, obsolete petty snake oil salesmen – promises are made and the Loyal Opp makes it its job to see they cannot be fulfilled.
This is no longer a country I recognize. One party systems fast become one man systems and in this country we hold our politics in such high esteem we barely pay attention to how many rotten apples sit in the halls of Congress waiting for job. It must smell like hard cider by now. I would advise those southwest of our country – those who think they can achieve the American Dream to pack warmer clothes and keep moving until they hit Canada.
It is hard to continue loving a land that gave so much to so many only to have shot itself in the foot over bigotry and imaginary fears. Those who fear the “Nanny” state are the ones who need supervision and limits the most. People who know what their limits are have no reason to fear anything in terms of grift, graft and greed. It’s not the crime that brings regrets to the political thieves – it’s the getting caught. The United States is out of control. And it scares me to death.
