Slowly Awakening from the Second Awakening

I've mostly recovered after my awakening from a 6-week coma in 2013, thanks to intensive physical therapy. It has taken the United States a lot longer to recover from the Second Awakening. 

We're slowly emerging from the coma-like fundamentalist ignorance that took hold of the country more than 200 years ago. 

Don't say John Adams didn't warn us.
