I was prepared to accept the inevitable, but surprisingly, even I was shocked tonight as I heard Barack Obama uttering the following words:
“Americans [have] sent a message to the world that we have never been just a collection of individuals or a collection of Red States and Blue States: we are, and always will be, the United States of America.”
As the last remaining wisps of individual liberty and states’ rights fluttered down like ashes from the fire of zealotry and ignorance, he continued with wave after wave of vague and arrogant rhetoric. After his speech ended with echoing rounds of the mindless phrase “yes we can,” I wondered in astonishment: oh, my country… what the hell have we done?!?
