The United States of America reminds me of an abused child who becomes an abuser. Well, that’s a line that’s unlikely to make me any friends. But think about this. It is a country founded by immigrants that wants to stop immigration. It’s first settlers were people escaping religious persecution; now they persecute those who don’t share their religious beliefs. And it is a country that won its independence through protest and, ultimately, war against an unjust government, and now people are saying that Americans must obey laws that are unjust and obey a government that does not represent them and is in fact actively attacking them. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
