HALF THE AMERICAN NATION WAITS WITH DREAD, hoping the other half (The Great Entranced) might finally be able to see the danger the little, sad, frightened, terribly insecure man behind the curtain that we all see – poses to our nation.
I know that we have little reason to hope, yet some of us still do. Why? Because despite the manifest sins of this nation, we want to still believe in the America we once thought we could be. We don’t want to let the dream die.
After all that has been, after all the maddening blindness that surrounds us at every stoplight, after all the cynicism and sarcasm thrown at us, we do not want to let the dream die.
