I am an American citizen, and have been an American citizen for almost four decades, and I am sad to say that the country which I signed up on, back then, was very different from the country which I am looking at, today.

Back then we had no EPA so pollution was horrible. We had no OSHA so workplaces were deadly. We were at war when I was born, and were going through McArthyism. We had duck and cover excersizes for nuclear war in grade school. We had horrible racism, terrible sexism, and homosexuals were as outlawed here as they are in Russia. We had the draft, but only for men. In fact, a lot of things were only for men.
America only started going downhill with the 21st century and Bush and 9-11, when the sociopaths took over the corporations, which took over the government. THAT'S why we have all the illegal spying on the American citizens by none other than the American government.
As to big brother, one's big brother is seldom someone who narcs on you to your parents, he's the one who beats up bullies for you. Too bad it's the bullies in the corner offices who have the big brother.
