What in the name of all that is good and holy has happened to my country??? [View all]

I was born in 1968; I turn 50 in December. That was a rough year for the Republic.

My earliest memories of political events were the Watergate hearing, which were omnipresent in my early years.

I grew up to be a history professor.

I get that political power in our country has always skewed toward the rich and powerful. But I never envisioned that fascism could actually infect our system.

Call me naive, but I thought at the end of the day, the opposition, despite being the opposition, nevertheless embraced the fundamental values of our system. Now it turns out that they would sell out our brilliant country to a foreign power simply for the chance to rule.

If sanity regains the day, history will lump these people with the worst figures of the past, as in Benedict Arnold and Joseph Mccarthy.

I'm just ranting because I can't believe we have come to this...
