I envision an ugly future. Despite the fact that I have joked with my mother that I was born during the Carter administration and everything turned out OK, I worry. I see my child being born into an America I can't even recognize.
I find myself channeling my inner Sarah Connor lately.
I used to think that we were living Atlas Shrugged. But lately, I think we're seeing a different ending. I don't see the politicians kidnapping Galt and asking him to fix it fix it fix it; I think they want the broken system.
I don't know how to live in a broken system. I feel like I need to spend some time learning how.
And even the plains aren't enough to calm my soul.

I share your worries. I try to comfort myself by remembering some history...in the dark days of the Depression, many believed the only question was whether America would go Fascist or it would go Communist. In the Cold War era, global thermonuclear war seemed like a real possibility. Yet we came through these things okay.
I'm not sure I believe myself, though. I'm concerned that something very bad may have happened to the American spirit.

I knew he was going to be bad, I just didn't know how quickly he could act and get so much done to ruin the country.
