Response to Original message
We have to understand that we (The people of this country) are turning on each other. We have seen a split in social class on an economic level and a social level. The man who committed the disruption is...well he is mad, just like the rest of America. We are not mad at one person we area mad at the whole system. We are mad at a system that failed to follow the rules of this country. We, the middle class (The back born of this country) are mad because we have been put on the back burner. I, an America citizen am mad at the fact that these people (The people we elected) have failed. I don't care what party line you are on or crossed. We have lost our way as Americans. We have lost the concept of right and wrong. We are like the kid on the play ground with the big red ball that does not want to play with anyone else. I will have to ask this one question..."Is this the American Dream we have all dreamed for, or is this the Roman Empire in modern times." I love this country, I love my people....But we need to open our eyes. We do need to get mad, we need to fight in what we believe in. It does not matter if one person agrees with you or if a million people disagree with you, what matters is what we believe in. Case and point...We as Americans need to get mad, we need to unite, not matter our race, religion, creed, or color. We are Americans, we all should be mad at the system that failed. A Lt. Colonel I personally know once said, "The only thing we have left in this world is the will to fight. This is our final and only option."
