But it is “We, the people...” so, in effect, the “this is what we voted for” is correct when the we is understood to refer to us and the us is a capitalized (and abbreviated) U.S.
Either way, it’s all semantics at this point. While we’re (uh...WE’re) “screwed” I (and possibly you) have yet to feel someone’s hand tool sticking and twisting in the back.
And, while “it’s over,” we haven’t really seen anyone come along and, with the aid of a mammoth-sized spatula, slide in under us (oh dear!...U.S.) and begin to scrape, lift, toss).
And even though we (WE) can all just reach over and “turn out the lights,” no one’s bed time reading is at risk at this point.
See? It’s semantics.
I no longer believe in WE.
I believe in US and THEM.
To continue to believe in WE is to continue down the path to perdition. THEY must be destroyed.
