Politics and Patriotism...
CNN is running a video today and the headline is paraphrased to say something like Rush Limbaugh hopes President Obama fails. It seems like kind of an odd thing for an American to say. Kind of like the Dixie Chicks saying they were ashamed to be from Texas because of President Bush. Our country may be represented by the Office of the President, but it succeeds or fails because of it's citizens. We elect the government. We are the government. If we want CHANGE, then we need to be that CHANGE regardless of who is President. The Declaration of Independence plainly and adamantly states that we have a right and duty to participate in our own governing. President Obama isn't going to save us, but I hope he can be the leader we need to pull us together, unite us all, so that we can save each other together. As with every new leader, I am hopeful that our future will be better and brighter for both my and my son's sakes, for all of us. All of us need to be a participant in sacrifice, effort, cooperation, and understanding if we really want change and a better future.
