The Americans, A Canadian's opinion [WeirdDave]

This goes back to the 1970s. Remember the 70s? Impeccable fashion, timeless music and fantastic American motor cars. OK, fine, none of that is true. Still, at one point in the 70s, highly respected Canadian journalist Gordon Sinclair felt inspired to write about us, his slightly wayward American brothers. We were going through a tough time then. Our tough times now make that look like a walk in the park, but still... We're going to get out of this, LIVs, and the FSA not withstanding. That's what we do, we're Americans. It's hard these days to hold on to that belief, but we absolutely HAVE to do it. Hang tough patriots, our time will come. We just have to hope and pray that it comes from our conviction and fortitude, and not out guns.


**Rah, rah, USA! Thanks, WeirdDave, for that boost of patriotism. Y-not**
