Today I am a little more resigned to the fact that our new healthcare bill is here to stay, at least for the foreseeable future. The courts will
side with the Federal Government; there will be no repeal; things will soon go back to politics as usual in Washington. No matter who wins in
November, the American people will be the losers.
Both parties still say they have the right answers, and both party’s members pretty much believe them. Have Republicans had the bulb go off in
their heads in the past year? A short time ago, they were spending like drunken sailors, the left was ready to throw the whole administration in
No one has forgotten, it’s just that no one really cares. Sure there are a few, but not enough to make the difference needed. Not enough for real
hope and change…
The majority of the public are still clinging to their parties, the parties are still clinging to their power and the idea of America is still slowly
slipping from the minds of the people. Freedom is all you make of it. It cannot be given and it cannot be taken away.
The liberty bell has finally split into. United we stand, divided we crumble.
This probably sounds to many like giving up. I guess in some ways it is. I like to see it as my eyes finally opening; the vail is finally being
lifted. There is no light at the end of the tunnel, no winners prize. We have all lost something in the battle. We will carry the damage and scars
into wherever they take us.
Freedom is a state of mind. I am free.
I do not wish to debate to the point of trading blows with my brothers and sisters. I want to withdraw and live the way I know I was created to live.
I can do that no matter what tomorrow brings, afterall that is all I have ever really wanted.
Life is short, and I have spent a great deal of it fighting the system.. trying to change it. I am the system. That is the fundamental belief seeded
in the birth of America. The individual’s mind is far greater than any state. How we live and treat others are what we are judged on. The laws of
men are weak because they are written to suit us. They are weak because we are weak; they are broken because we are broken.
Gandhi said: “Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
I think now, more than ever, I understand what he was saying.
