...why are people still buying into the idea of America being this nation of moral fortitude, where freedom and liberty reigns supreme, and political leaders can and never will do any wrong? "America participates in domestic spying!" Oh no! Not in America. Not in the land where everyone does the right thing, the governments have everyone's best interest at heart, and political leaders are esteemed as political gods of virtue and honesty. The world must be ending. Quick! Everyone, take cover!
Very few people here think of the US as the arbiters of morality, especially with regard to civil liberties and the like. The few who do are certainly not on the left side of the political spectrum.
