Since the election of Donald Trump there has been a question asked….what sort of America will this become? We have become a petty race when we make more out of small occurrences than large ones….our fascination with someone’s choice of head gear, for an example….what has become of this nation?
This is a good piece that tries to answer this question….
Are we the great US of courage, spunk, openness, inclusion, opportunity and democratic promise — as expressed in the Declaration of Independence, the Preamble to the Constitution, Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address, Roosevelt’s Four Freedoms and Emma Lazarus’ sonnet engraved on the Statue of Liberty?
Or are we the sad US of fear, cowardice, bigotry, xenophobia, intolerance and autocracy — negative traits emanating from the darkness of Donald Trump’s miserable dystopian view of our society, which has now resulted in him unilaterally imposing a contemptible and chaotic ban on immigrants from seven Muslim nations.
What course will this country take?
