Sadly I fear there are far to many Americans who either possess no real sense of history or are so naive that they except the propaganda fed to them by the media and politicians as truth and or are just to god damn lazy or just to plain stupid to discern lies from truth or investigate for themselves.
The Republic is in peril and they don't care just so long as their government subsidy check arrives on time and or their TV still works. They are the anthesis of the informed citizen our founders envisioned as the hope for the American future.
In the ancient past empires took centuries to decline and fall. More recently the British Empire found itself all but spent in less than a century. I fear that if we don't wake up we are about to install our own Caligula in the White House and we will seal our fate for once and for all in just another four years chaos, tacked on top of the destruction wrought by the last sixteen of incompetence and stupidity.
God bless you all and may he grant you wisdom and enlightenment as you go to exercise your most serious responsibility on Tuesday. God save our Republic.
