19. I agree we have lost our moral compass.
And that being said what do we do about it.
Run off to Canada or some other country?
Commit suicide?
Just give up and let the RW have it? Because if we don't try to solve this through a political means then the only option we will have is revolution and civil war...and frankly we could be on the loosing end, especially sense the RW is well armed and would have many in the military behind them for fear of retribution.
Having high moral principles is one thing and change is another.
