The corruption made me angry. The FBI was a great disappointment, but the Supreme Court broke my heart. And isn't that the purpose of it all, to cause us to lose faith in our country?

To deny the Dream? To expose the flaws and hypocrisy of our Founders, who wrote of equality, but who owned slaves? And therefore to throw out the Constitution, despise the flag, and welcome lawlessness and mob rule – believing in nothing as good or pure? To extinguish devotion, loyalty, and patriotism?

To label all as false, all as racist, all as tyranny? To run down what we have, so as to take it cheap, and trade it for something much much less valuable? I say no! I say the Founding Fathers, despite their faults, gave birth to the Dream of a free people, which reverberates still today. I say the U.S. Constitution still stands as the greatest political document in force in the world, and I say love and honor our flag, as the symbol of bravery, as the standard of freedom, and as the lamp in the window, guiding us all back home, back to the nation calling us to renew everything good and clean and free in the greatest America we will yet build.
