Wow, how did it come to this:??? How did it come to be that when one side is happy, the other is absolutely miserable and on the verge of a breakdown. How did it come to be that when one group of people views the country as being Great Again, being prosperous and strong, the other group views the country as being in a wretched inexcusable state?
I guess we no longer have that one thing in common that truly unites us — the desire for a strong, safe country, where people live equally and predictably according to the Rule of Law, and where government is restrained by the Constitution so that individuals can pursue the American Dream without much interference and exercise their freedoms most robustly. I guess those were the old days when the health and prosperity of our country actually mattered, and the prosperity of our fellow citizen mattered as well.
How can we be the UNITED States when we aren’t even a UNITED people?
It is truly so sad.
