Let America Be America Again
"Let America be America again. Let it be the dream it used to be." USED to be...We had a great dream a long time ago. That this would be the land of the free, a place to hit it big and become rich and famous and not have to answer to anyone...Now it's not the same. Now we answer to the government for the littlest thing...Why are we flying to this destination, why are we carrying a box of matches...soon it's going to be why did you buy this brand of shampoo...
Heres the thing though...Why did we let them take over like they did? Why don't we do anything to bring America back to the dream it once was? What are we afraid of?

I would think we are afraid of a bunch of things. Losing that protection for one. I mean we went from basically no protection to the extremes. But really I know I feel safer when I ride a plane. If we say stop, not like they would listen, but if we fight and fight until they stop. Maybe they will take to much of that security away and there will be another attack.
I really don't think that America changing happened over night. It happened over a period of time and I don't think anybody really realized the dramatic impact change would have on America. I don't think it's a matter of people being scared, I think it's just no one actually saw the evolution of change in America until it just so bad people started to wonder why.
