What happened to my America, was it all just a lucid dream? Have you seen your America lately? Yeah in my America the hero always got the girl in the end, but guess what? That worked for me, I liked it. The Russians were the bad guys, evil plots imploded on evil men, and I could say, “That movie was queer.” without invoking the PC riot police.
In my version of America we were strong, we were the modern day gladiators fighting for liberty. Justice was receiving what you deserved for the deed you did, not getting what you were owed complements of some selective plight or situation or media induced social cause. People didn't have such difficulty deciphering right from wrong. I believed the President was elected by the people, not just the people with the most money or the most nefarious agenda.
And finally people didn't mess with my America, because we would always prevail in anything we stood against. We were the tough guys with the big stick and using that big stick kept the peace.
