America used to be a place where immigrants could come and not only have a better life but feel safe from harm and not have to live in fear. Now the better life they seek is like dust in the wind because most of the opportunities have blown away to other shores. Our education system has become big business that is more concerned with athletics and bottom lines than quality education.
Now even the safe part is disappearing. You are almost as bad off here as you would be in the slums of Mogadishu or the like. Our leadership has destroyed what was the best of America. We are now not so much the United States of America as we are the Divided States of America. Red or Blue, black or white, right or wrong we are no longer a melting pot offering sanctuary but rather a stew pot where people come to be disillusioned and disgraced for their choice once they find that the fantasy is not real.
I hate to sound so cynical but facts are facts folks. Reality is sometimes the ugliest thing in the room and our reality is that we are no longer united and no longer one of the best and safest places on earth. We have done this to ourselves by sacrificing our self reliance and personal courage. We now rely on mother government for virtually everything. Too bad. I really loved John Wayne. Where is he when we need him?
