Something real egregious just happened. John McCain claimed that America isn't a country that runs from history, "we make he history," he boasted.
What a lie!
If America didn't run from its history, we wouldn't have such racial and ethnic struggles. Barack Obama wouldn't be the first African American presidential candidate of a national party. If we weren't running from its history, poverty wouldn't be so pervasive. Inner-city neighborhoods would be the social quagmire that it is.
If we didn't run from our history, conservative "Christians" wouldn't be in such a push to force the Old Testament into our legal system.
If we didn't run from our history, we'd stop acting like we're the greatest country in the world and confess to the crimes of humanity we have committed across the world.
If we didn't run from our history, we'd stop electing Republican presidents who continuously make the economy worse for average Americans.
"We don't hide from history," indeed. Well, I guess there is some truth in that. We just outright ignore it.
The only absolutely honest thing he said as that, "Change is coming." Barack Obama will be our next president.
