Since the year 2000:

1. We have declared war on a country that was no threat to us. We laid waste to the entire nation of Iraq, and then proclaimed: "You're free now! Aren't we great?"

2. We ignored the mastermind of September 11th, and allowed him to remain a free man for nearly 10 years. President Bush himself breezily declared "He isn't that important."

3, We have endorsed torture as an interrogation method, despite testimony from experts who state that torture yields little, if any, usable information.

4. A U.S state, Arizona, has instituted a "papers, please" law that authorizes police officers to detain anyone they suspect of not being a US citizen. The Gestapo would be proud.

5. American mosques are routinely vandalized or burned down.

6. Anyone wearing a turban or other religious head-covering can be attacked without warning for no reason, even non-Muslims.

7. Mass shootings take place every single day in this country, most often by increasingly paranoid, disaffected, or crazed men with ridiculously easy access to guns.

8. Mainstream politicians are doing nothing to curb public misperceptions that lead to these tragedies, and even in the name of electoral success, often add fuel to the fire.

9. Teachers, TEACHERS, are being castigated as 'union thugs', even as their resources for teaching our students are being legislated away more and more severely.

10. Municipal water supplies are being deliberately poisoned by elected officials in the name of budget consciousness.




Make America great again? Screw Donald Trump! I want America to be GOOD again...
