Spit or Swallow?

i don't get americans. they are all at once puritanical and heinous.

they wish to err on the side of life for the brain dead, yet execute the healthy.

as if twelve yokels is a fool-proof way of determining guilt or innocence.

they scream, choose life. and yet opt for death so often.

i just don't understand.

i am an american. born and raised. i was fed the same food. the same public service messages. the same fitlered, 'morally' watered down television. the same god-fearing ideology.

i just never swallowed.
