Vote 2010: United We Stand. Divided We ALL Fall!

Updated on October 18, 2010

When you are the leader in anything (even on Dancing with the Stars!) there is only one way to go – down. And there are always many happily waiting to take you top spot. America is the world leader and there are many ‘vultures’ who want us to slip so that they can be the world leader – number one. As the lyricist Des’ree said, “You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold, you gotta be wiser, you gotta be hard, you gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger, you gotta be calm and you gotta stay together!”

America – we MUST stay together. We MUST unite or divided we will all fall. The rest of the world is uniting against us. Wake up! Unite!!! Did you hear or read the news report on Thursday that Russia is helping to build a nuclear power station?! Read the following articles for details:

Most Americans want what’s good for America – we just have different ways we believe we should go about making America successful. What we seem to forget is that there are more than one way to skin a cat, a deer or a gator.

If we continue to fight amongst ourselves as we are doing now, NONE of us will benefit. Right now we are like a nation at a four way traffic intersection and we all moved at the same time. We are all in the middle of the intersection and no one wants to back up so we are all stuck. And everyone behind us is stuck and we’re backed up for miles without a solution in sight.

The top 10% of America has 90% of our wealth. That 10% is receiving tax breaks from our government so that they will create good jobs in America and put us back to work. But that’s not what they are doing. They are taking the tax breaks and shipping tens of thousands of good paying jobs overseas. This means that the top 10% are getting our tax monies from the government and they are getting more money by shipping our jobs abroad and saving millions. Why do the 10% wealthiest get to have their billion dollar cake and eat it too? Why aren’t we screaming at them?

We have to look at who the real culprits are and rebel against THEM. President Obama is giving these big businesses the tools they need to hire Americans. These businesses have accepted the tools but they refuse to use it to help the middle class Americans they are suppose to help. They are lining their pockets and sitting on their money eggs while we lose our jobs.

America we have to unite against big business and we have to unite as a country before we drop from number one to number three or four.

We have to be smart citizen politicians. We have to make decisions that help us; not the 10%. We have to realize that the only way to rebuild America is for all of us to work together and get America out of the hole we’re in. When we’re out of the hole we can debate our doctrines and personal preferences.

If we do not remain united, foreign powers will have a real opportunity to slip in and take bits and pieces of our country and businesses until they own America. Is that what we want to happen?

We can only point the fingers at ourselves if this great country collapses.

This is not the time to snicker, bicker and point fingers. Know is the time to set America right so we can continue to live in this great country as Americans and not become foreigners in our country.

So, what are you going to do? Are you going to vote and unite America on November 2, 2010 and continue the work already started so we can all get jobs again? Or are you going to vote to further divide the country and we will all fall?

United we stand. Divided we fall.

What are you going to do?

If America fails, which country do you want to rule America? Which new language do you want to have to learn to speak? Chinese, Russian, French?

United we stand. Divided we fall.

What are you going to do?

Peace, Love and Understanding!

      Happy Sunday Mr. Happy! The reason that America is still the 'world leader' is because there is no other country in the free world with the military capabilities and force that America has. That's why we North Americans have to be careful and we have to keep our eyes on Russia forming relationships with China, Iran and Venezuela. They can combine and create enough military weaponry and force so that one of them will become the new world leader. Russia has the scientists and know-how to nuclear build weapons and China has over 1 million soldiers.

      Love your latest hub. You hit many important points. Americans have to realize that we the middle class are being used and abused. We have to get up and out and let OUR voices heard. We cannot sit idly by and watch a few 'non-thinkers' take over the political system and then we will have to live with their decisions – that is CRAZY! What about what WE want. It seems to me that those who know do not speak and those who speak do not know. We have to let OUR voices be heard. American must vote on November 2 and those who can should Early Vote.

      Captain: Thank you for visiting! I read your post and it is a must read! I always thought Americans were smarter than we're proving ourselves to be. We are not the sophisticated thinkers we once were. If we the 'thinkers' do not unite and make our voices heard we will all have to live with the decisions that the non-thinkers made and it would be our fault. See you at the polls. Early vote if you can! God Bless!

      I agree with you on much of what you say and I would suggest you give a read to a blog I posted yeaterday titled "Fii pregatit (Be Ready)".

      What I do disagree on is the America as being the leader in the world. That is no longer the case. It was indeed, after the Cold War ended. Now though, things are different in North America: living of standard has gone down for most people, the education system is getting from bad to worse and so on. The only thing America is leading now in my opinion is in crooked bankers and military spending.

      Cheers for a good blog!
