The American People
If I hear another, skin flinted, helped to get us in this mess, Republican says that the American people reject something they want to derail, I feel my head is on the verge of exploding! Just because you SAY the American people are behind us to justify their quest to kill all things Obama, does not mean that it is true. The Republican Party once stood for something. They did not have the mind set of heartless, cruel, oppose at all costs everything that would help the American people, that I know. The once principled Republican party is now populated with Appalachian trail hiking, wide stance in a restroom having, liars, hypocrites, and racists.
Is this not 2010 and this country still can’t get it together when it comes to race. Make no mistake their opposition at every turn is firmly rooted in covert and sometimes, overt racism. America voted for an African American man to be our leader and their base of scared white people simply can not accept it. He must have been born in Kenya. He must be a Muslim radical. He has got to be stopped to take back “our” country. When they say “our” country, they do not include the vanishing middle class, people of color, LGBT Americans, the working poor or anyone else who does not attend a Klan meeting.
Surely this can not be the country that America aspires to be. The Republican presidential campaign slogan was “Country First”. What an insidious euphemism for what they really meant. The once proud and respectable GOP has become a party that constantly uses fear to keep their base riled up and vocal. Come on America, surely you don’t buy in to the crap they are selling you. For me, when someone is trying to scare me, it shows me only the weakness of their assertions.
If America is to be the beacon of hope as in the golden years of the country, we have got to get rid of the mindset that “I am more important than the least of my brothers.” The “Don’t take my tax money to help anyone but me” mentality and mantra must be shouted down by The American people. The rational people who would dismiss that ideology.
I pray for the greatest country in the world to re-discover its greatness and potential. Lord knows we can use all the help we can get. What do you think?
