Thanks for posting that, Kat. Pretty spooky!
My loyalties are to a set of ethical ideas, not to any particular plot of land. The "America" that my grade school teachers spoke of and that my high school history and civics teachers talked about consisted, not so much of a piece of real estate, but a set of principles. If that set of principles no longer exists in the country in which I live, perhaps it's time for me to move on to some country where those principles do exist.
At my age it would be something of a jolt, but I must admit to giving it a bit of serious thought.
