The response to 9/11 and invading Iraq. Passing the Patriot Act went against everything I was taught America was. My family are all military so patriotism was a very big deal growing up. My grandmother instilled certain principles into me and taught me why America is so awesome. All the good ways we have changed the world.
So yea.. it was the Patriot Act that woke me up. I knew nothing good was going to come after that.
