Our Nation Is At Risk

Updated on June 13, 2010

I am generally a person whom avoid getting involved in Religious and Political Issues; however, this changed last week when I had to speak out about some religious views now I am sadly going to speak out about the madness going on in our country in the political arena. To be honest I am afraid. I am afraid of the events that are about to take place if everyone involved does not get a grip. We all are aware that politics has always been a mud fight. The politicians play dirty and it's all about the "POWER". We the American People (voters) only become involved when: (1) if it appears the minorities are invoking their rights, (2) the majority becomes the minority (either side) and last but not least (3) when racism is too strong to contain. I've heard it all: the bill is a joke, it's just another hand-out, it's unconstitutional, they are just upset because we won, they are just sore losers, he's your President,etc.,etc.. This is childish and this country needs to get a grip. How soon we forget; remember September 11, 2001? I can't! People we are still at war (actual war) and we are trying to compound it with a "Civil War." We have forgotten that in the midst of all of this propaganda, terrorist are still trying too kill us! We are still under attack! Don't get me wrong...democracy in action is a wonderful thing when it involves "adults". What's going on right now is not ADULT. Our children are watching not to mention "The World." We have stopped watching the gates and the enemy is setting up "OUR" Demise. Some are already in place and Our Nation Is At Risk .

We have become a joke and no one cares. We were once feared as the most powerful nation; now we are considered weak and petty. Why is everyone so dam angry? I have heard some rationalize that's its just another hand out for the so called less fortunate, it's a power play for President Obama, etc.,etc.. The most insulting comment is this (n) word is just giving his people more money. Let me be clear when I say this: (1) blacks have not received one dam dime because a black man is in office and (2) whites do not turn their backs on a black man/woman because of fear they are going to steal; therefore, trust the Black President has eyes on him. All of this is trivial considering the loss of life from this war, our children dying in the streets, the homeless, etc.. As for this health care bill is concerned; my concern is keeping my daddy around just a little while longer. A man I love more than this bull all of you are talking. Just because his options was too keep food on the table and a roof over his family's head or pay for the high cost of health insurance. He had health insurance that he paid faithfully for many years until he got sick and they raised his premium and eventually just dropped him and don't get me started on the "VA". This bill is giving people the option to purchase health insurance not give away free health insurance and guess what many still will not be able to afford it. Therefore, get a grip and get back to the real issues at hand and if nothing else grow up....your children and possibly grandchildren are hearing every hurtful word you are saying.

      Hi! SweetMoncha

      Thanks! A very good hub. I am also worried a little about directions general sentiment in USA is taking. In fact I feel a few important aspects have become practically directionless. But over all I am quite positive about USA, I have faith in ability and general attitudes of people in USA. That is still intact. I hope that will compel people in power to decide right things. I think that is your sentiment too? I quite agree with points you make as well as those made by Breakfast Pop.

      Breakfast Pop thank you so much for your kind words. I have been reading your hubs as well and I understand your position. I do not believe everything in this bill is fair; but we as voters and the American people need to approach this in a different manner as you have agreed. If our Congressmen are not voting as we believe they should and act more responsibly then it is our job to remove them.

      Terrific and important hub. I have no patience for all the hideous name-calling that has been going on. Frankly, it is Congress and main stream media who need to tone day their rhetoric and stop calling hard working decent citizens names for speaking out and exercising their right to free speech. I agree, the childish acting out has to stop. Now, having said this I must say that there are many fine things in this bill, but at the same time there are sections of it that will place an unfair and impossible financial burden on people and businesses that simply can't afford it. A family of 4 earning $88,000 a year is not entitled to help, but must buy insurance or face penalties. I don't think this is realistic. Seniors will face a very hard time when all the cuts to medicare are in place. Surely, we could have crafted a bill that was fiscally more responsible and aimed at preserving what is good about our system and fixing what is not. We all need to calm down, those in Washington, in the media and in the streets and get the job done responsibly. You wrote a fine hub.
