“We the People” vs. “We the People”…

Reagan evoked the passion of “Americanism”…

When we look at the possible matchups for President it is striking, considering all the problems we are facing today, that the POTUS is still polling as “high” as he is. Mind you he’s still well below the magic 50% number and his negatives on things like handling the economy are growing, but it remains curious nonetheless. I would point out that Jimmy Carter was polling similarly against Ronald Reagan in 1980. That said, there is something very different going on in 2011.

It is not simply the notion that American politics should stop at the water’s edge, but more the troubling idea that a President is so compelled to highlight what “he” sees as American flaws when addressing our international counterparts. And it is not just about flying a flag or reciting the Pledge of Allegiance in our schools, but rather why the calculated effort to revise, re-write and/or simply erase an ideal, that while not without trial, has transformed humanity for the better and like no other in its short 235 year history. I would also say to my Reagan friends, it is not simply a bad economy but rather a question of economic, Constitutional and social direction. There are far more folks today who have benefited from the free ride than in the early 1980’s. And still more who have opted out of the American dream in favor of the American hand out. The truth will actually shock many of you who have bothered to do your homework, but the reality is the number of Americans receiving some kind of assistance from the government is staggering and unprecedented, and there seems no end in sight. The entitlement evolution/revolution will apparently succeed where so many of our enemies have failed.

So I personally am not inclined to stare with confusion at the T.V. when I see the President polling two points ahead of Romney, because I know this election is not really about Mr. Obama. It is however about “We the People”. In the end only we can decide whether we will leave our children freedom or the chains of debt. In the end only we can decide if we wish to stop the revisionist train before it derails our future. And in the end only we can “elect” to return to success through hard work and individual achievement which knows only the boundaries of our efforts. No my friends, it is not as simple as Left or Right, Liberal or Conservative. That would be far too easy…

One Response to “We the People” vs. “We the People”…

    Wow, in all that you failed to mention the ” Corportate welfare ” that is going on.How a progressive tax structure is not progressive at all anymore.However i guess considering the party you seem to support that might right up your allie. The money that has been thrown into the pockets of the 1% and /or the “Elite ” in this country is catastrophic. Manufactured wars ,the revolving door in D.C. I believe that before Reagan the majority of the tax load was paid by those who make over $40,000 but since is now paid bye those who make that and less.Did you support the Citizen’s United decision? The best thing that could happen to this country is if every republician was voted, impeached , recalled whatever out of office.They are in my opinion the “legal ” marfia.Since they seem to be above the law.They appose consumer protection, no doubt because it might affect corporate profits.I could go on forever but i think you are well aware of what they stand for.All you have to do is open your eye’s and it is there in plain site.Which show’s the extent of how above the law they are.Its’s so so sad that the truth is that this goverment has been bought and paid for bye corporate America in my opinion,and, that it is not for the people bye the people anymore if it ever was.

Have something to add?
