Happy 4th of July

 Happy Independence Day!!

I wonder if this is what our forefathers had in mind for us, 235 years later. They fled their homeland in search of religious freedom and look at us now! Millions of people living in poverty, with a very very small percentage of people doing really really well. Politicians who only care about power and making a name for themselves, at the expense of the people they supposedly "represent," while most of us struggle every day to make a living for ourselves, feed our kids, keep ourselves and our families alive and hope to some day find a little happiness for ourselves.

Is this what they meant for us, 235 years ago? Where 1% of the people have 90% of the wealth? And most of the people in the middle are, for some reason, okay with that? Where people lose their homes and everything they own, because they've lost their jobs and can't find new ones and our government (and the people who support them) prioritize penises on Twitter over people's lives? Over people's health? Over people's worth?

Do you think this is what they meant?

Happy Independence Day, everybody!!


Good times.
