Nobody took anything back last night

I cringe whenever a politician says something along the lines of “we’re going to take our country back” or “we just took our country back.”

America does not belong to the Right or Left. Having temporary custodianship of a public office does not mean your side is more legitimate or deserving. Go ahead, viagra generic fight over the direction of the country. Argue about which approaches are more likely to solve our common problems. Wrestle over the ways and means. But quit claiming that you’re taking the country back.

It never belonged to you in the first place.

At least, no more so than it belonged to everyone else.
