I'd rather hear rants than defeatism. The United States is still evolving and maturing, not in spite of peoples weaknesses but because of them.
With Congress at 91% disapproval rating something is off? I often hear "vote all the bums out" and yet we get the same old same.
The only constant in this world is change. So change is coming in one form or another. Maybe we can decide which? Is it equity we seek or equality and what's the difference?
