Kinda, sorta… Author unknown on this one, but pretty much how I feel anymore…
I grew up and spent most of my life basing my interactions with people on their character, NOT their color or beliefs. In the military all we cared about was that the other people did their jobs so we could do ours and make it home to fly again the next day. I’ve spent considerable time outside the USA, including in 3rd world countries and seen man’s inhumanity to man. In business, it was about professionalism, honesty, and integrity. Now???
I never cared about your political affiliation, until you started to condemn me for mine.
I never cared where you were from in this great Republic, until you began condemning people based on where they were born and the history that makes them who they are.
I have never cared if you were well off or poor, because I’ve been both, until you started calling me names for working hard and bettering myself.
I’ve never cared if your beliefs are different than mine – until you said my beliefs are wrong.
I’ve never cared if you don’t like guns, until you tried to take my guns away.
I’ve never cared about race matters, until you called be a racist for being white.
But, now I care.
I’ve given all the tolerance I have to give. This is no longer my problem. It’s your problem. You can still fix it. It’s not too late. But it will be. Soon.
I’m a very patient person at times. But I’m out of patience. There are literally Tens of Millions of people just like me that are sick of all your Anti-American crap!
I’ve always cared about life, and all lives, but now you try to force the notion on me and my other fellow citizens and patriots that certain lives matter more than others. You protest, riot, attack, burn and loot. Your so-called “movement” has become a radical out-of-control bunch of thugs, criminals and anarchists who are doing harm to our Country.
We have had enough! America is the greatest country on Earth, and if you don’t like America, then you can LEAVE. We are done caring about your misguided “feelings”.
You don’t have the right to enjoy American freedoms if you are trying to take that right away from other Americans.
