I'm not going to lie: it's getting harder for me to put on a sincerely jubilant mood at this time of year.

I remain as proud of my country, of the United States of America, as I've ever been. But I've never been more disgusted and ashamed of its government. And as I'm sure everyone is aware to one degree or other, the country truly has been fundamentally altered in recent years, and forcibly so. And I don't think the people who've been cheering these things have fully grasped their long-term implications.

Sorry to be such a wet blanket, but I'd rather be honest than try to fake a smile.

And here I thought you'd be saying something about how the nation is not its government, or maybe how deaf arrogance on the part of leadership is what led to the Declaration of Independence in the first place, or possibly how laws are only relevant where they're accepted or enforced.

Ah well. I, for one, am not bestowing the power to alter my jubulousity upon a bunch of dorks on the opposite coast.

Well I'm glad one of us, at least, is able to muster that better and more proper perspective.

EDIT: Actually...I'm not sure I can honestly say that I think that perspective is "better and more proper". But it's more emotionally healthy, at least. :P
