To Paraphrase our Newly Elected President
This isn't the America I knew.
The country I grew up loving would never have elected this lightweight, leftist liar and friend and close associate of murderous lunatics.
The country I grew up loving would not have elected a such a blatant racist (unless it was West Virginia and he was Grand Kleagle Democrat Robert Byrd of course).
The country I grew up loving would have seen Christians rise up in massive numbers to oppose the most pro-abortion candidate in history (Congratulations, starting next year, we'll be funding those abortions.) instead of voting for hopey changiness.
The country I grew up loving would have rejected a candidate who promised to heal the planet and lower the tides (that aren't rising anyhow--hey, a promise he'll actually keep!) based on his hubris alone.
The country I grew up loving would laughed such an unqualified candidate (I'm not old enough to remember Zachary Taylor or Millard Fillmore) off the national stage.
The country I grew up loving believed in the First and Second Amendments, and would not have elected a man deeply opposed to both.
The country I grew up loving stood for freedom against the collective impulses of communism; we didn't elect those evil principles.
Apparently the country I grew up in is not the country I live in any more. What a sad day. "It was a bright cold day in April, and all the clocks were striking thirteen."
