Having finally gotten around to navigating and posting on Google+, Two Wise Gals now realize our political incompatibility with a member of one of our circles. Sadly we sense anti-American sentiment that seemingly stems from a dislike of our capitalistic system and an even greater disdain for our corporate leaders that transcend our own citizens’ OWS suspicions, protests, and demands. Most disconcerting to us is this: on one hand, this non American tweets and posts inspirational messages, most of which have been created by Americans, and, on the other hand, condemns our way of life and incites readers with anti-American rhetoric. In addition to being disappointed and saddened by this realization, we are even more concerned about our affiliation with this thinking. America is a family…our family, and we have the right to criticize her and her citizens; but a foreigner should understand that attacking political boundaries by arousing anti-American sentiment makes him suspect.
We close with these wise words from Mark Twain:
Each man must for himself alone decide what is right and what is wrong,
which course is patriotic and which isn’t. You cannot shirk this and be a man.
To decide against your conviction is to be an unqualified and excusable traitor,
both to yourself and to your country. Let men label you as they may.
This is why Two Wise Gals have decided to follow our conviction and sever this affiliation.
