In the run up to the recent elections, and in the noisy din of its aftermath, there has been much talk by the sore losers that they needed to "take back America" and that they"lost America". Such bloviation angers and saddens me.
America belongs to all Americans, not one ideology or otherwise arbitrarily defined socio-economic-political grouping of citizens.
America is a grand, shared idea. No one gained it or lost it, because it was never theirs to possess.
