Divided We Will Fail

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.

  1. I like how you say that you are willing to give Obama a chance to make good on positive change. And I agree that there has been a paramount of "blame it on Bush" mentality. Some of it deserved and some of it not. You say that he has kept us safe for the last 7 years, but another way to look at that is that 9/11 happened on his watch. Is he to blame? I don't know. It might have happened anyway, who's to say. The 9/11 commission felt that the US could have done more to thwart it but then perhaps 9/11 might have happened some other way, some other time and we'd call it something else.
    I think we are all worried as to what the future holds. This fear crosses party lines. We don't like to feel out of control, afraid - unsure. No candidate can offer total safety and financial security. But can we all put down our polarized political differences and do as John McCain asked? Can we get behind our new president?

  2. American's need to toughen up. We have become lazy, overfed, and vulnerable. We find it way to easy to blame everyone but ourselves for our problems. No matter who is President, we need to all be Patriot's. Whether your ideals are liberal or conservative, we need to get back to the basics of instilling faith, leveraging the strength of our families, get back to supporting our local communities, and then the perserverance of our nation will shine. Begin to focus more closely to home and forget about the sensationalism of the media storm. I agree with Pam that I will cautiously support the President Elect. I am sure there will be things that I will be against, however, I will respect the office and dignity it deserves. American's should be ashamed for the treatment not only of President Bush, but even the Presidents before him. Some quotes from former leaders of our nation that still hold true today:

    "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free." - Ronald Wilson Reagan

    "We have nothing to fear, but fear itself." - FDR

    "Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country." - JFK

    I don't know if I can totally give up the Obama bashing, however I think all of us should focus more on getting better people elected to public office.
