I hate where our country is right now.
Advertisements [?]
I used to believe we were a free country. I used to believe that we were better than those countries that would torture other people. I used to believe that we could trust our elected officials and our President to protect our freedoms.

I used to believe we were a brave country, not a country of cowards. I used to believe that someone would always come forward and speak the truth and lead us to the light. I never expected our country to go insane.

I never expected our citizens to defend big banks and corporations over the common people. I never thought that the media could be so successful in brainwashing our citizenry. I used to believe there was a fair and honest judicial system in this country, not one for the rich and one for everyone else.

I used to think we were a compassionate country that would take care of those in need and hungry. I used to believe in our Constitution and the laws our ancestors passed to protect us from those that would use power to control our lives and take away our liberties.

Now, sadly, I see a country that I am ashamed to call my own. Call me un-American or whatever you wish. I know what I feel and what America used to mean to me.

I apologize if this might offend you.
