The Obama Opposition
Why is there so much opposition to President Obama? Barack Obama, has been elected our 43rd president. He won fair and swear, it was a landslide. Almost immediacy we began to see an increase of hated, and racism directed to this new president! As a child, I remember when each morning, we said the pledge of allegiance, with hand on heart and a warm feeling. I remember the powerful ending of, 'one nation under God, with liberty and justice for all'! The reality of what really goes on in politics was hidden from me them, but not now.
I fear for this country, not because of the possibility of outside forces such as terrorist, but I am afraid because of the war that is among us. We fight, attack and devour one another. Can we be one nation under God, when we are not even 'one' nation? We are a fragment of rich, poor, Hispanic, black white, Muslim, labor, non-labor, gay, straight. We live in one nation, but we are neither 'one', nor under God!
I have never heard such hatred and such disrespect one American to another. I do not recognize her. Will it take another terrorist attack to shake us from our anger and distrust of each other and cause us to love and respect each other once again?
Remember the Days after 911, every man was you brother and there was nothing we would not do to help at the site of the Twin Towers. Men and woman risked their lives and health to look for survivors and remains of the dead. Now we are killing each other and picking each other apart.
Taking the Country Back
The GOP, wants to take America back to the foundation of our forefathers. Do you realize how corrupt and ungodly our forefathers were? They created laws to govern a very different world, with very different people.
They too lied, slandered their fellow Senators and Congressmen, physically fought and did what ever it took to win politically. Is that what we want to return to? They were just like we are now!
The forefathers owned slaves, fathered children with them. While they were declaring all men are created equal, blacks were counted as 3/5ths of a person. Woman had no rights, and could not vote. I don't want to go back to that!
The So Called Moral Right
There is a movement of hatred for homosexuals, Muslims, Latinos and anyone who is different than ourselves. This ideology is promoted by the GOP. They are not the moral right that we claim to be? They are heartless and without compassion. Does this behavior represent the God they claim to, serve? God is love; God hates the sin but, does He not love the sinner?.
Can hatred turn a homosexual to a heterosexual? Can hatred cause a Muslim to love America? The Bible we live by tells us, others shall knew we are God's disciples, if we have love one to another. Where is the love?
Don't Swallow the Lies
Are you not listening, are your not watching? Things are not getting better, because we have blocked ever bill that would make things better.
Do you realize that we are the ones who want
to back people who want to continue to send our jobs overseas? Do you realize they don't care anything
about us? The Democrats promised change and change has not come and like impatient children we throw ourselves on the ground and hold our breath. Who told you any party is in charge of you destiny?
They live in expensive houses, with the money that they receive from big business. Their children have access to the best of education and the best connections when they graduate. Yet when it comes to our children, they want to cut spending in education and financial aid.
Can you afford to send your children to Harvard? They can! Do you have 80,000 put aside for each child your want to send to school? They do! Yet, how are our children going to be educated?
Show me the Money
Both sides want power and dominion over one another. We have to ask God, to reveal the truth to us and not be lambs to the slaughter. We are all being deceived and pit one against another. Are we not American all!
Both sides are greedy. They manipulate us, so that they can fulfill their agenda and when they are filled, we will be left empty, once again. When will we learn, they are playing us. All of us!
No matter, which party wins, they will all be OK. They will drive off in their fancy cars, go their million dollar homes and jet set with the rich and famous and watch their salaries and pensions grow, while we like foolish children tear one another apart.
Forget the Poor
The Congress and the Senate receive a double pension when they
retire, yet they want to play with our Social Security. When their
experiment does not work, what will happen to us? Do you really want them to privatize Social Security?
We want to do away with social entitlements. When there is nothing in place to help the poor, what to you think will happen. There will be a return to total lawlessness. Desperate people have nothing to lose, and should the poor of this county have nothing to feed their families. We will all suffer for our cold hardheartedness.
Do you remember the depression? Government intervention is the only thing preventing a rise of Dillians, Baby Face Nelsons and Bonnie and Clydes once again. They were birthed out of great poverty and destitution.
This Country Needs Prayer
Pray not for Republican nor Democratic rule, but pray that God’s will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. When God's will is done, then everyone will win. Pray for peace not on earth, but in America among Americans, black white, gay, straight, Hispanic, Christian, Muslims, Buddhists and the like.
I was a Republican for over thirty years, when I began to notice the hypocrisy of the party. I realized the party who was suppose to be religious, did not want to help the needy, the orphans or widows. I began to realize, that party that was supposed to know a God of love, hated gays, Hispanics, black and the immigrant population.
I saw the party that was supposed to have the moral high ground, disrespect of a president, call our President a liar, in a state of the Union address, a jackass on the news, pray for his failure and even his death! Needless to say, I am no longer a Republican! "Like George Clooney's character in Oh, Brother, Where Art Thou?" I remain unaffiliated!
