11: Citizen

Angry white men with guns feel their power’s been taken away and blame the government that conspires against their families. They, not the government, own this beautiful country. They have a right to organize and carry arms for their own defense, march around the woods in Michigan, makes them feel more in control, although they don’t know what to shoot at. On the radio, a spokesman claims meetings made in smoke-filled rooms deny people a living wage, benefit the wealthy, internationalize business, infringe our national sovereignty. Too many concessions to feminists, immigrants, welfare mothers, abortionists, other races. It doesn’t pay to listen anymore; people must be either stupid or a part of the problem, if they disagree.
