An Open Letter to the World

An Open Letter to the World

Dear World, I hope this reaches you in all of your corners. You – especially you. Citizens of the world. I feel that it’s urgent that I speak with you directly.  There is something I need you to know.  You see, I am an American.  And while there are a number of things about my community and my country that I am proud of, I know that right now – from the outside – it really does appear that the entire United States has gone batshit crazy.  In some cases, I fear that it has.  But the rest of us are still here. I know that you haven’t seen me on the news.  I don’t own a soapbox – nor do I belong to a church or club that might provide me with one – and I don’t believe in winning an argument by simply yelling the same thing over and over again hoping my opponent will simply get too tired to continue to oppose me.  I don’t think that “because my God said so” is a valid argument in ANY political forum.  I don’t look like a dirty hippy and I often wear suits to work, so the media is unlikely to use me to represent protest or dissent.  I also – perhaps most importantly – don’t hate anyone, which apparently isn’t very newsworthy.  I believe that all people are created equal until they prove themselves to be idiots or assholes. I know it seems that people like myself are vastly outnumbered here, but that isn’t true.  It’s only that being rational and accountable doesn’t make good television.  It doesn’t make anyone richer. Unfortunately, I don’t imagine I’ve been alive...
