On THIS day............  

Posted by Alex Pendragon

For more than eight very long, arduous, scary, aggravating years now, I have had plenty to say about a country I had lost faith in, that I no longer felt love for, that I had fell out of favor with, all thanks to a class of humans who sought power and riches at the expense of an entire nation, as though they somehow were divinely entitled to excess while driving the country of their birth into the ground, and spitting on the sacrifices of our forefathers.

On THIS day, I became once again, a PROUD American, who has been given a gift greater than any promise this country has ever made to me. The following is OUR gift, to embrace or squander as we see fit. WHAT SHALL WE DO WITH IT?

It will be interesting to see how the next few years play. He has the potential to be one of the greats.
