Welcome, immigrants, to the land of the free, the land of opportunity. The land where all are equal before the law.
The more I know about the United States, the less I like about the country of my birth.
You want opportunity? You got it – if you’re already rich. If not, we’ll saddle you with student loans that you can never get rid of in bankruptcy – even if, once you graduate, the only job you can find is flippin’ burgers.
Land of the free? Nope. Everything comes with a price. Freedom of choice? sure, if you’re independently wealthy. If not, you’ll soon find out what “at will employment” means. You want to vote? Ok, if you’re white, and register republican. Want to go out at night? Better be white. Ok, in some neighborhoods, that might not be wise, either.
Equal under the law? I guess you’d buy into that if you’re too rich to jail. But now there’s reports of women given full cavity searches on the side of the roadway for — traffic violations.
We seem to be dominated by misogynist, racist, selfish God-fearing white males with guns.
The Left is giving Obama a pass on things they would have raised holey hell about when Bush was President. Drone strikes; ordering the execution of American citizens without a trial; evesdropping on all of our phone communications, all of our emails. Sure, Obama’s better than what the Republicans ran against him, but what does that say about our choices? We have none. It’s orchestrated by the rich and powerful, for the rich and powerful.
Sad thing is, they’re succeeding in pitting the rest of us against each other.
History says this country has already started to collapse. But we’re like sitting in the front car of a rollercoaster…we’ve gone over the top and have started to head downhill. When the rest of the cars crest the top, we’re gonna pick up speed real fast. It’s a ride I don’t look forward to.
rant off. your turn.
