You will see I have posted pictures between paragraphs as a way to pause and think, not about my words, but your reaction to them, time to think, then time to act.
I have been blogging now for close to five months and have noticed a change in my personality, I have become much more aggressive and hateful. Although some of this could be to the current condition of our country, and the apparent path it “appears” to be taking I think the situation is the polarization of the current parties that has me most concerned. Never have we as a nation been so divisive in our individual opinions of what is best for this country than right now!
One only has to look at the current polls to see that the current leadership is still running a high approval rating, this fact is and has been common since the time of Dwight D. Eisenhower, the honeymoon as many call it is a time the new candidate can revel in that love/lust mode and can do no wrong. This appears to be difficult for the detractors to take, I myself fall into this group and by doing so I have lost sight and faith in the common sense of our great nation.
In short our United States has been borne from a group of rabble rousing independent minded men, (sorry ladies it was the times) they realized to be free, each individual would have to fight for a unified cause. So stirring were these nation builders that most of the great adaptations of previous societies came together in full force and thus was created our Constitution. No other society has garnered as much wealth, success, or stature since the time of the creation of that document. So I say, ‘Ye have little faith” if you do not believe we will survive this current crisis that has now spread to the entire globe.
I do not wish the current administration any ill will but I also expected them to live up to the platform in which they won the election. Now that the first 100 days have come and gone, I ask each of you to take the responsibility to view what has been done, passed, bastardized, and shoved down the collective throats of the American public. What is the economic focus, how are we going to pay for all this change, are we a more United States or are we a nation divided? All simple questions that should be answered outside of politics and looked at with introspection, not regurgitation of political spin masters or party lines.
Nation is inclusive a body politic, Country, not all have to agree, that is the beauty of the design, but nor should we be at each others throats. The commonality of the success we have achieved has been by our desires to excel, now with this current downturn, albeit the worst we have seen in 60 years, I see many questioning the validity of the system, and have even heard individuals speak of changing the Constitution to better serve the needs of the disenfranchised? Since when is that what our nation stood for, each man woman and child has been offered a chance, a chance of freedom to do as they see fit, no where on Earth is this opportunity greater than within these United States.
The current course of action is to make all men equal, which is where each of us starts per our group of laws, now we are choosing to legislate that right and force all people to be equal, take from the rich give to the poor and place the burden on the middle class, this is not government this is a travesty. I ask each of you that might read this group of thoughts to ask, do we care so little that we loose our voice of reason. Politics was designed to be a short term service to our country a return favor for all she has given us. and like all good systems they become dilitued. altered, and structured for the gain of the few over the many.
Politicians work for us, not us for them, the money they are spending comes from the fruits of our labors, if we are so lucky to have the ability to earn a living. It is time to clean house, reduce government, hold all accountable for the slight of hand and apathy we all have shown. Change we can believe in is, not laying down prostrate and allowing this to happen as if we have no voice. Time to become active, time to do some actual research, time to turn off CNN and Fox News, time to take responsibility for our nation, for we are the people, please do not ever loose sight of that noble group of words, our nations deserves our best, let’s all drop the party lines and find common ground for the betterment of the whole!
