For All That You Have Done To Make America Great Again… I Thank You, President Obama!
I had an epiphany a few hours ago.
It was during a conversation I had with a few friends & coworkers of mine. A few of them claim to be apolitical but expressed concerns about the current situation in America…politically, socially,and economically. A couple more were either liberal or registered Democrats, but were expressing misgivings about the vote they cast back in November 2008…and were seriously concerned about others who claim to share their political ideology in this day & age. And then there was me…the only registered Republican conservative of the group.
We had a fascinating conversation about current events and politics. I had a chance to listen to their political views, I had a chance to rebut their political assertions, and I had a chance to express my own political views.
My epiphany came when I realized that, of everybody who was involved in our discussion, I was the most optimistic of us all.
More than all of the Obama supporters and disinterested participants…it was I who was most hopeful. Hopeful for our country…hopeful for our future. And I realized that all of this optimism that I held was solely because of one man…one man and his grand vision for America:
President Barack Obama.
So I am typing this blog to give sincere thanks to this ambitious man who has done so much to make the United States of America a better place…to restore the luster to our great country and to return America to its rightful place as the greatest nation in human history.
Because of Barack Obama, Americans are waking up…waking up from a decades-long coma. Americans are finally emerging from their self-involvement and realizing that our country has a serious problem: we have allowed the wrong people to gain access to our highest seats of power. People whose hatred of our country and our ideals have been the motivation for their avarice-addled aspirations to austerity and authority in America…all alliteration aside! ;-)
We have allowed them to have unwarranted influence over our most impressionable and our most important resource: our children.
We have been cowed by an agenda-driven organization that anointed itself “The Fourth Estate“, blithely ignorant of its machinations, its elitism, and its lies.
And now, we have opened our eyes and we are finally seeing just how troubling…how dangerous…how frightening…it is that these same people currently hold so much sway…so much power…so much control in America.
Correction: “…so much control OF America.”
America is finally taking notice.
And America doesn’t like what it is seeing at all.
And what’s more…America isn’t going to ignore this problem anymore!
Thanks to President Barack Obama, these power-hungry elitists were under the impression that the 2008 election was a triumphant culmination of decades of effort to achieve their lofty goals. They believed that nothing stood in the way of their final push towards their ultimate goal. They believed that the the finish line was in sight.
They just didn’t take two small items into consideration:
Reality and sunshine.
Just as they started down the proverbial home stretch, reality began to trip up their progression. The many European models that they held up in comparison to what they saw as America’s failing began to wither as paragons of example.
In spite of this, these elitists doggedly refused to see the writing on the wall; they stubbornly insisted that they were right…that theirs was the true way…and that everything would work exactly as they wanted it to work…once they got everything they wanted, the way they wanted it.
But that harsh reality was exposed to sunlight. And in that sunlight, the failings were brazenly displayed. So brazen, so obvious, that even the most apathetic citizen took notice. But what the citizens of America noticed even more than the flaws in their system was the behavior of those who continued to advocate such a flawed, failing system.
We saw their arrogance.
We saw their hypocrisy.
We saw their condescension.
We saw their utter indifference to our concerns.
We saw their smug disregard to our views, our feelings, our opinions.
And such displays shocked us. They troubled us. They angered us.
And it motivated us from apathy to action.
We learned of their secrets. We learned their own tricks and schemes from the very tricksters who taught them…
Soon, our ranks grew to formidable numbers. And what was most interesting about our numbers is that we weren’t a homogenized group-think army. We weren’t a seasoned band of professional activists. And we weren’t a rowdy gang of violent antagonists.
But there are words that definitely describes us best:
We are many rugged individuals, with nearly as many viewpoints, and yet we seek a common cause and speak with a unified voice in opposition to our freedom and liberty being trampled upon in the march towards Socialism.
Out Of Many…One.
Don’t Tread On Us.
And this is only motivating us further.
And that motivation will move us towards greater things.
A greater tomorrow.
A tomorrow without the corrupt, destructive, soul-killing policies that currently are poisoning the well of American prosperity and freedom.
So thank you very much, President Barack Obama.
Because of your effort and the efforts of those in Washington DC who support your grand vision, The United States of America will become a much better place.
Just not the place you & Congress are striving for!
