I do not know which is more disappointing for me to "see" or is a greater shame for this former Constitutional Republic which has been failing its founders for decades now.
1. Once American nation believed "I may not agree with what you say, but will defend to the death your right to say it."
- Now we have far too many special snowflakes who are "offended" and need a "safe place" from free speech, or are moved to stifle and silence any dissenting opinion contrary to their own...with some politicians being the most egregious offenders who insist that everyone but them just STFU.
2. Another lost ideal is Patrick Henry's "Give me Liberty or give me death" which has fundamentally transformed into "give me more free shit" or else.
- This is what "democracy" is...the freeloaders deciding how much they will take from the productive at gunpoint.
