I haven’t given up... yet. But I do admit that in the 25 dry, downward-spiralling years since the exhilaration and enthusiasm Reagan provided, only repeated for me once via Palin’s emergence, my questioning of what can be done, either politically or culturally to salvage America, has gradually been transitioning to a question as to whether America is indeed ‘worth’ saving anymore.
What the country has become... between the sheer deviancy of the American culture, demonstrating the country’s embrace of evil, symbolized by such deviancy as homo marriage, and the monstrous, out-of-control insanity of the government and its facilitation of a populace of dependent serfs... is a vomitous disgrace to everything America used to stand for.
“...exhilaration and enthusiasm Reagan provided,...”
Wow, you can say that again! He was something else, our Ronnie. My first Presidential election.
There was something about his voice - just made you feel “Everything’s going to Fine. Don’t Worry.” and it wasn’t a false sense. You KNEW he meant it, and would try to make damn sure it stayed true.
Sarah Palin brought that back for me as well.
“....sheer deviancy of the American culture...”
Again, that’s SOME of the people, and I think it’s always been there, just not as out in the open. Once again, the minority who ARE the freakshow managed to get in power - granted, at all levels across the country - but this is what they do.
Just up to us to repel boarders, brother...
