When the country was “great”

7 Nov

To the people that really think it’s the end of the world and to the people who have said something like “I hope we can get back to being great again someday”:

When were we really great? Was it when we were repressing homosexuals? Or African-Americans? Or women? Or Native Americans? I mean come on! We have a tried and true history of being just downright awful! You want it to be great “again”? I don’t.

“Hope is that stubborn thing inside us that exists despite all the evidence to the contrary – that something better awaits us so long as we have the courage to keep reaching, to keep working, to keep fighting.” – President Barack Obama, Victory Speech 2012

This is a borrowed post, from many people on my Facebook feed. I’m not sure where it came from originally.

    Wow, just. Well, the founding fathers might regret adding free speech if they read this.
