I ate my dinner in front of the TV last night and watched the end of the movie Dave. I so think this country is heading in the wrong direction in so many ways. I am particularly bothered by how freedoms are being abridged in the name of security. I am also very bothered by the encroachment of religion into education, the courts, and private decisions. I am an avid believer in the separation of church and state. There is also a lack of tolerance for other beliefs in this country, and the certainty that what I believe is the right way to believe so I will ram my truth down your throat because it is good for you.

I found myself really wishing that we had a president like the character Dave in the movie. I don’t feel safe and comfortable in this country any more. I feel that my ideal America is under siege. I vote regularly and write my senators and representatives to express my displeasure. At least the recent polls are showing that others share my dissatisfaction.
