I usually don't do political posts, but a thought occurred to me while I was trying to fall asleep one night.
America is like a restaurant.
There's a great neighborhood restaurant that you love with lots of different types of food that changes often and you always enjoy it. Yes, there's some scandals and health code violations, but other than that - you keep coming back.
Then they change the menu.
Not much. There's still a few of the same dishes, but the overall format has changed to a buffet style. You can stay and eat, or you can go to any of the other hundreds of restaurants available.
Oh, and the prices have changed. Not much, but there was a bit of a problem with some people walking out without paying, so they had to make some adjustments. Don't worry though - loyal customers will get a coupon to offset the raise in prices.
Are you still staying? You don't have to. You also don't have to complain quite so loudly because there are many other options. But the owners have changed and now we have to accept the changes and embrace them - or change ourselves.
