Make it great again.

July fourth, make America great again, work towards getting rid of the lump. I feel bad that so many of my friends to the south don't feel good about their country. However there is nothing wrong with the "country", America has contributed a lot to the world over time, even though you rarely hear about those stories. There are a lot of really fantastic people and also good people that have been lead astray and just need to be reminded they are decent.

 Americans just need to work on taking their country back from whatever ideology that seems to have taken control of it. Don't be ashamed of your country, only be ashamed if you do nothing about it.

I think America has always been great but, at times, it has done some really bad things. The present administration is one of them. It will get better. It may take a few years, but, it will get better.

I'm in Texas and right in the middle of Trump country and I'm not sure that it's an ideology. It's a Cult of Personality. If he came out against the color blue green tomorrow, his people would line up behind him (rabidly) and tell us they're always opposed the color green.

It's interesting that today I hear hopeful sentiment mostly from non-Americans. Trump is a horrible human being but he is not the problem. The problem lies in the American people. The problems were easy to ignore while progress was being made. Now, it's in our faces. Other peoples have adopted our philosophy and internalized it while we have turned our backs.

An interesting film with a misleading title. Michael Moore's 'Where To Invade Next' (2015) Nothing to do with military invasions. All to do with the ideas that made us great, how other countries implemented those ideas while we just paid lip service to them.

It'll be a quiet one here for me...rainy day...reading a good book...waiting for November to do my part and take back Congress. If all else fails, Maddie and I are moving on up to Canada. Hope you have enough room for all our stuff. We don't travel light.

Many of the snowbirds I know and their friends who own property in the USA are selling it now because they are so uncomfortable in Trump's America now. Lots of people are just going to Mexico or elsewhere now for the winter.

Our one daughter has a house not far from Nigara Fall on the Canadian side which she rarely uses. We are seriously considering buying it from her and moving up. I don't know the country will ever rebound back. Or move into Ottawa.

Alas I am pessimistic it can be reversed or retaken.

Sometimes I wonder if you guys are still not over the civil war, maybe you need to break up the country into a progressive forward thinking country and a racist, narrow minded, mean spirited country, just be sure to keep the nukes.
