America in Wonderland

Steve McCann

Over the past few years I have had the strange sensation that I, along with the American people, have fallen down a rabbit hole and joined Alice and her band of peculiar and anthropomorphic characters in Wonderland. A world ruled by nonsense wherein what is normal becomes abnormal and vice versa thus a place devoid of any substance or meaning. It increasingly appears that the United States, not to mention the rest of western civilization, is rapidly evolving into Wonderland.  Among the more notable, but certainly not all, manifestations of this evolution into a world of the nonsensical are the following......  This is the sort of logic and thought process that could only be appreciated by the Mad Hatter in Wonderland.

Alice was able to escape from her odyssey in Wonderland when she was awakened by her sister and realized her adventure was but a dream.  However, there is no one individual who will awaken the American people and begin the long march back to sanity before it is too late.  A majority of the citizenry is aware of the debacle at hand yet they are looking to others rather than themselves to initiate the long journey back to rationality.  Electing men and women to public office, particularly the presidency, that are honest, devoid of egocentricity, knowledgeable insofar as the depth of the problems at hand and committed to sound conservative principles based on the Constitution would be a vital first, albeit minor, step in the process.  But the ultimate fate of the nation and that of generations yet unborn rests solely in the hands of the American people and their determination or lack thereof.  The overall outcome of the 2016 election cycle will reveal whether there is any ray of hope to escape from Wonderland.
