A Wish For America

statue-of-liberty-ny.jpg“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me.
I lift my lamp beside the golden door.”

Ian Welsh, a Canadian, posts this excellent piece on the honorable history of the US, our recent moral decline, and a wish for our future. H/t to Firedoglake and may you all have a safe 4th of July.
