Why aren't more American's upset over this development? Why are so many supporting this blatant disregard for constitutional law and separation of powers? Have Americans become so complacent in our affluence, so immersed in our entertainment and seeking of personal pleasure and leisure, so caught up in our own little worlds that we simply don't care and have been lulled into complete apathy? Or worse, have American's given up on the idea of preserving the very freedom and liberty that has been so hard fought for over the last 227 years?
Will my generation (the baby boomers) be the last to remember what it was like to have once been a free people, one nation, under G-d, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all? Is the Land of the Free now just a passing dream, a fading memory that will forever be gone when the last of my generation takes their final breath?
