Will America Grow into the Promise it once Held?

I’m reading Lennon by Tim Riley. I can not fathom why the FBI would waste time and money following Lennon and Yoko Ono around New York City and the rest of the country.

Hoover must have been the biggest joke in the history of America. Collosal waste of resources. I’m sure Nixon had something to do with it as well.

Sometimes, I have a hard time reconciling the actual America to the America in which I grew up believing. They seem different places. Sometimes I feel that way about the present.

The America that Christians envision for us is definitely not an America in which I want to live. Superstition, bigotry…these are not things that should be encountered in an enlightened nation with an intelligent people.

Perhaps, America has yet to exist.

America is a 200 plus year work in progress.  The fundamentalist Christians would take us backward to the days of superstition and backward thinking.   They would have the laws of their petty God codified into our legal system.  If they get their way, America will be little better than a Christian Taliban State.

I hope that the people of my nation truly believe in Liberty, Freedom and Justice for all.
