Are we the United States of America? Or are we more divided than ever?
The Democrats are on an all time high. They are a bit bummed about losing the filibuster proof Senate, but they still have a great majority. One would think that would satisfy them. But NO. They want to strip Lieberman of his Chairmanship because he endorsed McCain. Al Franken wants a recount. What slime. He lost, but wants to spend tax payers’ money to prove it. Democrats are such sore losers. It is what it is, Al. Just as it is what it is in the Presidential election. Obama won.
There are many Americans that don’t want to accept Obama as our President. They’re already on the Hate-Obama bandwagon. Voter fraud and voter intimidation has been alleged. I don’t know if voter fraud played a part. I don’t even want to go there. I NEED to believe that it was a fair election. That may sound naive to some. But I REFUSE to stoop to the Democrats' level and demand a recount like the 2000 election. That is just plain WRONG.
It’s been said throughout the blogosphere and media that race didn’t play a part in this election. Yet 95% of blacks voted for Obama. That speaks volumes. With all that being said, and much left unsaid, I believe we are still very much divided. I’ve always believed JUSTICE to prevail. And as of today, I still do. While I respect the opinions of the American people and even my fellow bloggers-I won’t join in on the Obama bashing. I saw what the Democrats and the biased-left-winged media did to President Bush from day one. From the election recount to their hate-mongering and their Hate-Bush bandwagons--he didn’t get a chance. How can a President run a country effectively when half of it is against him? How can a nation unite when half of it hates its President?
I won’t lie, I’m frightened. I’m fearful Obama isn’t what he appears. I’m afraid of his radical associations and ideas. I’m afraid of all he’s said and everything he hasn’t. I’m afraid for my future and the future of my children. I also fear for the very foundation of our beautiful country. I believe in our Founding Fathers and our Constitution and what it represents to every American. I fear everything our country symbolizes will be changed or damaged and those transformations will be irrevocable. America needs Obama to succeed. And that’s why I’m not going to bash Obama.
I’m going to stick with my belief that justice prevails and hope that the change theme that Obama spread throughout his campaign is the change that’s best for our beautiful, free country. I hope that once he is versed with all the intelligence information he will see he CAN'T sit down with rogue dictators without preconditions. I can only pray that he will keep our country as safe as President Bush has for the last 7 years. I hope he doesn’t take us down the same roads a Carter or FDR presidency took this country with recessions, depressions and new deals--OR worse.
With that being said, I will blog and write my opinions, but I will not participate in the Obama bashing. However, if Obama does something that is detrimental to our country, I will not hesitate to shout out via my 1st Amendment right. So, for now--I will give him a chance. And that’s more than the Left ever did for President George W. Bush.
