When Did the Captivity of the American Way of Life Begin?
Today Joe commented on my "9 days until the American Captivity..." title of my previous post. He said, "I think the captivity began a long time ago; longer than most want to admit. November 22, 1963 is a pretty good benchmark for it." I was looking up the date for when I believed it began and found this introductory paragraph in Wikipedia. Can you guess which Presidents it was about? It would appear history has already been written. It will be easier to write this time around if we only have to change the names.
