While there are many aspects of American life we love, currently our nation is in a perilous position. However, many people are unaware of this truth. Some can’t see the danger, while others deliberately ignore the warning signs or just don’t care what happens to our country. It’s easy to be lulled to sleep because change happens slowly. Then suddenly we wake up and realize that America today looks nothing like it did in the past. By comparing its earlier state to its present condition, the dangers that await us if we continue down this path become painfully obvious.
