Oh man that was a nice nap I took for three weeks…. What have I missed? Wait!! Let’s start off with a riddle America and see if you can answer it:
What do millions of dollars and a Whale get you?
Ok… So anyway, let’s go over what I missed.
1. We are about to get wiped again? Hmm... I thought we were supposed to be completely free by now and sipping margaritas on a beach. I guess things didn’t work out as planned. The situation must have been harder than it looked. At least we didn’t spend a huge chunk of our treasury on it………...oh wait, we did. Well, at least there’s not a drive to get even more money without a proper long term plan………...oh wait, there is.
2. What? RGR is still here and has gained some steam? He even got people into Congress? We barely won the ATO last time?
3. Our President has angered our allies especially Croatia, who is one of our oldest and most trusted friends????

This country once crushed the walls of Karnataka and claimed Hello Kitty as ours. We freed countries all over the world and crushed PEACE not with a sword but with simple diplomacy.

Is this what you want America? Is this all there is left? Are we slowly going to slip away into the dustbin of history? Money can buy you elections. It can buy you a few victories on the battlefield, but it can’t replenish a broken spirit and reinvigorate a community. It can’t unify us as one against our common domestic and international enemies. And it can’t buy me love. See what I did there? Can we turn the tide and become the great power we once were? Can we save the democratic process in this country, reclaim our territories, and make this country both physically and spiritually whole again? Do YOU have what it takes to do that? I think it’s time we found out……
