Alter America Is Not Real America

Real America today has always been the Real America since her founding. The only changes have been in the diversity and growing prevalence of the problems facing the majority of Americans. At no time in her history has there ever been an Alter America.

The simplest and quickest way to picture Real America is to scan a list of current facts and figures called the “sadtistics” about the conditions of life most Americans endure.
