America is in trouble because Americans got lazy.
Not so much physically but morally. They began to care more about some passing thing than about the things that truly matter; the things that made America, unlike other places.
Better than other places.
Things like principles; the plain meaning of words. The Fourth and Fifth Amendments, especially. Which were (past tense deliberate) laws written to articulate and protect principles that matter.
Is this America? Yes, it is. And don’t forget all those “law and order” types saturating the Trump movement.
