This is really hard for me. I mean, we've just been through so much together over the last 35 years. But the fact is, well America, I just don't
love you anymore. To be completely honest, I don't really even like you anymore. I know that may sound harsh, but you brought this upon yourself you
I use to think you were really great. I've come to find out you've been doing unspeakable things behind my back the entire time I've known you.
Growing up, I was always told how great you were and how I was just suppose to love you, and you know, I've tried, I really have. Even when I
started to realize what you're really like and saw you changing for the worse every day, well...I still tried to love you America. I can't do it
You've never been perfect, but now it's like I don't even know you anymore. First of all, you've turned into a complete bully, which I guess
shouldn't be such a surprise considering how you got your start. Coming to a new continent, killing the native population and stealing their lands,
well...I suppose you've always been a bully. I just didn't want to see it.
These days, you boss everyone around constantly and if you don't get your way, you throw a tantrum and start dropping bombs. Who the hell made you
the boss of everyone anyway? You're not even that old. Certainly not old enough to be telling countries much older than you what to do.
The next problem I have, is that you treat everyone who really loves you like crap. What's up with that? There are so many of us who really cared
about you, who really wanted to help you, who tried to warn you that you were headed down a dangerous path, and well...you just ignored us America.
Worse than that, you even seem to go out of your way to demonize and attack the people that really want the best for you and aren't afraid to stand
up and say something. You've turned on your own citizens. You treat us like criminals at best and livestock at worst. Well, enough is enough. I'm
not your property America and I'm getting tired of you telling me what to do all the time. I'm a human being. I can make my own decisions. You know,
we had an agreement America. This little piece of paper called the constitution. That was our agreement and you just walk all over it now. It might as
well not even exist anymore.
The thing is America, I just don't think there's anything that I can do for you anymore. You've become overrun with ignorant and arrogant
citizens. The saddest part is that their ignorance is willful. They don't want do better. They don't want to ask questions. They don't want
to dig deeper. They just want to live in their own little world with their eyes and ears covered and break into a chorus of "la, la, la, la"
whenever someone starts to say something that makes them the slightest bit uncomfortable.
And don't act like you don't encourage it America. You indoctrinate us from an early age through your public schools. You don't teach anyone how to
learn or how to think for themselves. Hell, these days, you don't even bother to teach them to read and write. All you teach them is how to sit down,
shut up and conform and anyone who doesn't gets separated from the herd or made docile with whatever drug you're pushing this week.
And speaking of drugs, you're quite the hypocrite on that front aren't you now? Drugs are bad right? I mean, it's just horrible if an adult wants
to smoke a little plant every now and then, but it's completely fine to put a five year old on Ritalin. I'm sure it has nothing to do with your
special little relationship with the pharmaceutical companies.
Another thing that really irritates me about you, is how you glorify the worst of us. You place worthless, talentless hacks on a pedestal and tell
people to look up to them. You encourage mediocrity. It's appalling that more people know who Honey Boo Boo is than Neil deGrasse Tyson. It's
appalling that shows like Toddlers and Tiaras even exist. The really sad thing though, is that it's all part of the plan. The systematic dumbing down
of your population is not an accident. Ignorant people are easier to control. Willfully ignorant people doubly so.
I just can't do this anymore America. For all your obvious flaws, I still believe at one time you were really great, but now you're just a jerk.
You're loud, obnoxious, and frankly, I'm embarrassed to be seen with you. You don't care about me, so why should I care about you? I'm tired of
making excuses for you. I'm tired of worrying about you. I'm tired of loosing sleep over you. I'm done.
So, what I'm trying to say is, I'm leaving you. I'm not sure where I'm going and I'm not going to be able to leave anytime soon, but we're
through. I'll keep to myself until I find a new home, but until then, I don't want anything to do with you anymore. I just can't stand to watch you
destroy yourself any longer. Don't call me. Don't text me. Don't ask me to help you when you get in a jam. Don't ask me to feel sorry for you when
things don't go your way. I'm done.
Maybe one day, you'll get your act together and we can talk about being friends again, but I'm certainly not holding my breath. I'm going to look
for another country who will treat me better than you have. Maybe I can even find one I won't be ashamed to be seen with.
We had a good run. I wish nothing but the best for you.
