39. I was also behind DK for these same basic reasons. Without...
our basic rights, no other issue means shit because we have lost our voice. Its truly sad that this is the country that we all think is so much better than everyone else. Many say that its still better but thats because they aren't looking outside the box to what this country will be in the future. Things are only getting worse and at a faster rate than Ive ever seen because Americans have been beaten down and are just riding along submissively. I am like Michelle Obama and so happy to see Americans waking up and at least getting out and voting, even if the electronic voting machines and corrupt officials will decide the outcome.
