Yeah, I was about to post but was reading it and gotta say, take away the "great show" he apparently put on (I don't tend to fall for that crap.. a
boring speech in line with a constitutional republic would have had my blood pumping with excitement.. I am out of my element though in this era I
guess) and the speech REALLY falls flat.
Lots of bitching and moaning about the other party (can't say that I disagree, but find it funny considering he alluded to the fact we aren't a
nation of whiners... THAT RIGHT THERE goes to show ya how out of touch he is with reality *we need healthcare blha blah.. we need you to make the
employers raise minimum wage blah blah.. we need more food stamps so we don't have to cut off our internet and cable blah blah.. we got ourselves
into debt and we don't want to pay it back, help us blah blah)
Our government should work for us, not against us. It should help us, not hurt us. It should ensure opportunity not just for those with the
most money and influence, but for every American who's willing to work.
That's the promise of America – the idea that we are responsible for ourselves, but that we also rise or fall as one nation; the fundamental belief
that I am my brother's keeper; I am my sister's keeper.
And here is some of that speech that sounds "good" to the ears of those who don't pay attention. Should should should and need need need, but then
what??? "I am my brothers keeper; I am my sister's keeper"??
Blatant socialism.. You are NOT my brothers and sisters and not only do I NOT want you being my keepers, I don't want to be your keepers. I had one
brother (RIP) and I have two sisters.. positions are filled and no more apps will be accepted.
Just look all through out this speech. It is there, it is in your face, It is the tiger jumping out of the rabbit's hat that someone alluded to
yesterday. You just have to understand the hat is all.
Good luck everyone. I *think* we may be needing it more than ever.
