13 years and 1 day ago the "patriot act" was non existent. The TSA didn't molest air passengers. The term "homeland" was just an ominous word. The NSA was under control. Preemptive war was unthinkable and not part of our values. We did not torture. We did not imprison people indefinitely without charges.
Remember what we used to be and what we stood for for 225 years.
Let there be HIGH water!
