Meandering thoughts of a Bay Area college student… be prepared for some bipolar vocabulary

Today. We celebrate. Our INDEPENDENCE DAY!

It’s been 235 years ever since our country told the British to go fuck themselves. Eleven years later, we wrote our Constitution. This makes the United States of America the longest lasting democracy ever in the history of mankind. In general, democracies are weak and short-lived, having a very poor track record. Indeed, most countries that even attempt to switch to a democracy actually fail completely, or they succeed only for a little while, ultimately leading to an authoritarian rule.

Our country as a form of democracy didn’t start off so hot either. The Articles of Confederation (precursor to the Constitution) was pathetic.

Actually, how about I save the history lesson for another post?

Not a single day has gone by when I haven’t been proud of being a U.S. citizen. All of my friends who’ve constantly dissed my country just to piss me off can all go suck it! šŸ˜€
