Your post made me sad because deep down, I know you are right.
I’ve been sad for a few years, too. In the end, I am grateful I was able to grow up in an America that was still America, but sad that my children and their children will never get to see that America. Oh well. All you can do is grieve a little and get it out of your system, then get to work protecting your family and your property from the government and the selfish cretins who elect it. Think of it as a happy challenge! (/Bob Ross)
