I'll be the first to admit it. I fell for the hope and change dream in the false belief that the election of Barack Obama meant an absolute triumph
for the little guy, and that he and Joe Biden you know had our back, instead of our back up against the wall, heck i'd climbed the freaking wall and
was hanging from the ceiling throughout the Bush years. I ruined my life and i'm a Canadian. So i wept openly during his inauguration. I might have
even said "thank GOD" or something to that effect. I went for it all the way down the line.
During a lunch meeting with a client, i expressed my supreme hope and optimism that things were about to change, and for the better. I said it with a
knowing smile, utterly confident in my assessment of the world situation, as if Obama would bring healing to a nation wounded by the 9/11 attacks and
the ensuing wars.
For some reason i was consoled by it. So i climbed down off the wall, and started to get a life. And everything was good... birds were singing, the
sun shon brightly, the wind like a breeze blew freely - Liberty was in the air!
..until, that is, Mr. Obama proceeded, to carry on, with absolute 100% continuity, every single one of the policies that arose during the historical
nightmare or what i have come to refer to as the "oh oh's".
I figured it was ok, and that everything was in good hands. I prayed for the man, for the office of the Presidency, for the United States and the
World at large.
I was a turning point in my life, first 9/11, then the election of Barack Obama who was going to make the world right again.
Boy was i ever wrong.
He (my client) with whom i shared my ebullient outlook on the state of affairs upon the historic election of Barack Hussein Obama - looked at me, i
can remember it now in hindsight, you never see these things at the time of course, with a slight pity at my ignorance, and said simply that when he
either doesn't bring deliverance &/or continues with the status quo, that the American people will quickly change their hearts and minds, and given
that no one man even even if President of the United States (sure sounds impressive) can possible put things back together again as they once were -
his entire Presidency was doomed from the beginning.
And Engineer. Had it all figured out before anyone.
I didn't really listen to him then.
What he was saying sounded absurd to me. Not even in the realm of believable or conceivable, so blinded was i by my bright hope and faith.
Just like Glen, my client, said - nothing but a disappointment.
This is not a condemnation of the man, the person whoever he is, Barry - but of the entire system, which he inherited and then ran with the ball down
the field for what amounts to an evil agenda and the looming prospect of a totalitarian police state. He moved that ball down the field, even
accelerated the process.
He didn't change course, on the way to "Prison Island". He did nothing whatsoever to undo the wrongs or heal the wounds that wounded us, simply
BECAUSE we saw him run that ball down the field, but the team that he plays for, they wear nothing but black and don't play by the rules, and that's
And as far as i can tell the ball has been fumbled, so there's it's an interception - as the people become relevant again while the fruits of the
ruling class the "elite" is clearly seen and recognized for what it is.
The world is changing and will change, but not by any help or assistance whatsoever of Barack Obama when push comes to shove and the data, is in.
Big government is not a good thing, as modern history attests to.
Will we all learn though, that's the thing..
I don't see how we can't.
I know now that i was totally blinded and mistaken in my overall assessment of the situation.
Did they restore Liberty, and Justice, which bends to the ends of the universe?
Did they make any move in that direction whatsoever?
Sad to say, and for me of all people, given how much i am moved by these things and God willing also move others, but i was terribly mistaken.
He lost his mojo because he didn't change a damn thing, not where it really needed changing, but only adopted and even accelerated the various
leftover doctrines of the Bush years, done with a brilliant whitetoothed smile, but he never got done what needed to be done for the sake of the very
cause of Liberty itself, which makes the sun shine and the birds chirp and the winds of liberty to rustle the trees with fresh air.
Everything needn't have changed if the very change itself was based on a monstrous lie.
Why Obama went with the corporate whores is beyond me, but he totally changed, not America, he was the only thing that really changed, but the overall
historical nightmare continued unabated, and now the American people have woken up.
Good morning... welcome back to the real world.
Bu bye Mister Obama. You may no longer be relevant to the American people any more. They were utterly exhausted and you've gone and burned them out.
It's too tiring trying to hang on to that early hope and optimism, it wasn't based in reality.
It's funny though in a way so thanks for the irony, for the lesson learned, namely that slick politicians fundamentally can't be trusted unless we
the people become them and run for office for all the right reason, en mass, a new generation, but for the all the right reasons, the one's Mr. Obama
promised but did not deliver on.
The flame and the throne is ours when the "relevant political community" has become no longer relevant.
Their darkness is our foil for a new age of reason informed by spirit and truth, love and mutuality as the very basis and cornerstone of an authentic
Civility without which there cannot be a functional Civil Society.
The keepers of the flame dropped the ball, to use a mixed metaphor, and, yet again "it was the stone that was rejected by the builders that became
