Hey, I agree that these days are full of angst and uncertainty, and as you said, it didn't start with the election of Obama, it started long before
that. I am one of those who voted for Obama, based largely on his promises of repealing the Patriot Act, with all of it's constitution stripping
sub-sections. But he hasn't.
I believe that we aren't IN the middle of the problem, I believe that we are on the precipice, sort of teetering on the brink, we could fall one way
and the country could fall, or I believe that we could place aside all of the silly distractions and work TOWARDS something that will pull us away
from the brink.
The distractions I speak of, and the garbage about being born in Kenya, being a socialist, communist, and being a secret muslim. Putting an end to
the garbage that separates us would be a good start. Relentlessly attacking our only President would be a good start. Pulling together on something
that we can all agree on, and ignoring those that we can't agree on, well that would also be a good place to start.
As has been established, none of these problems started yesterday, they have been years in the making.
Alas, I am dreaming, because we are doomed. The religious right will not abandon their agendas long enough to work towards a single goal, neither
will the "Birthers", nor the warmongers, nor the social conservatives and neither will the liberals.
It's a nice start, but we are too divided, we are too ignorant, we are doomed.
And we will get the kind of world community that we deserve.
