Sad but happy it's over As I write this I can't help worry about what is in store for America. It must be nice to be so taken with an individual that you feel the elation that is sweeping through the liberal community. I am not so worried about taxes or even the redistribution of wealth we have been promised. My worries are for the strength of our country. What will Obama and the House attempt to do to our military and how will it leave our ability to protect our shores.. Will he honor our commitments in the world that have made us the strongest Nation in history. I can care less about his race, it's his backbone that concerns me as an American. His ability to attract the young and the disenfranchised to his cause not unlike the Pidepiper of old is worrisome as he has answered so few questions and has left so many unanswered charges. To be a real President of the people of the United States it will take more than the backing of the liberals to get by, will he have the ability to reach across the bridge of discontent that is building? Will he be a leader of all the people or just those who seem to be in a trance following along behind his bandwagon?
I have so many questions and not one of the multitude of his believers have ever given me an answer that is anything more than rhetoric and talking points. All they do is repeat what he has said as he has no background to attempt to understand. He was a neighborhood organizer and a far left State Senator getting his backing from the Daley machine in Chicago. He has been groomed for this coup d'tat for the last 4 years. We as a people were manipulated by the press and the congress into creating this terrible financial disaster which propelled him to the forefront. He called for change and not one of the major press ever asked what change meant. As the problems grew in the financial system by the day we as a people stood by as the press and the Democratic Congress blamed Bush for everything that happened. In the mind of many the real culprits of the disaster are now the leaders of the free world, I just shake my head in wonder, how long can we remain free.
The President elect has stated he will support the 2nd amendment in regards to gun ownership but his votes in the Senate have shown a different side of him. He has stated he will cut taxes for the Middle Class but what is the Middle Class and will he destroy those that the Middle Class depend on for their jobs? He has said that he will consult with the Generals before doing anything about Iraq and Afghanistan yet I wonder how long it will take the Soros and The Think Pink constituents to change his mind? There is a great party going on in Chicago tonight but how long will the party last? At some point he has to come to terms with the 50% of the American people who oppose his liberalism, will he be able to weather that storm? I fear that the battle for the soul of America has just begun. Hopefully it won't come to a head in the streets. To the celebrants I say enjoy. The pendulum has swung in your direction but remember in your elation that a pendulum swings both ways and will eventually come back to the other side. The people who now feel deserted are Americans too and they just have a different view on how America should be.
The people of America have spoken and as an American I will respect their wishes. I can't say I will support this administration in an active way but I will watch carefully and decide on my feelings as I learn to understand Obama's motives and ambitions.
And that's my opinion,
