I think I'm no longer a true American. I say that with the same stark recognition I once experienced when I came to the realization I wasn't a Christian. A foundational pillar of my persona collapsed. It's an injured feeling and an authentic feeling; like one might balance the other, yet awkwardly. The money influence in our elections is corrupt, the dissolution of unions leaves no power for the middle class to keep up with new costs for healthcare and for unregulated internet. There's no money for law and order (untested rape kits.) The schools stink. unemployment for the graduates.
