We’ve come full circle

It took 245 years but we have come full circle. It is ironic that the birthplace of democracy was in Philadelphia, and the loss of democracy was in the same place, Pennsylvania. In 1776, the Founders declared independence from a King who suppressed individual rights. On the 6th of January, the Republic once again has come under the rule of, not a king, but a political party. One, that if they fulfill all the promises, will take away individual rights, do away with the electoral college, pack the Supreme Court, add three new states to the republic, and do away with private health insurance. All of which will result in Obama’s declaration to fundamentally change the country.

I could blame the spineless Republicans, the media, the courts, especially the Supreme Court, or the Democratic Party. I will not do that. I won’t even blame the voters. They obviously voted their hearts and minds. They obviously want to be controlled and cared for by the government. They got their wish. Rest in peace America. You were a grand experiment.
