An America to be proud of

The United States of America may not be able to fix its broken two-party political system, or the intense polarization that it breeds among its own citizens, but there is a paradigm shift that this country is capable of achieving that would improve the quality of life for every person living in this country.

When we are able to see drug addiction as a health problem rather than a crime problem, and treat it accordingly, ever so much will change for the better.  When homelessness is viewed as wholly unacceptable in all circumstances, because we decide to care about our own safety and well-being as much as we care about having a competent military, and we start actually doing something about it on a national and systemic level, that will be the start of a new America that we can be proud to live in…

…an America that protects its people and takes care of its people.
