It was brought to my attention today that I didn’t get all political in Tuesday nights post. Cryptic I think was the word that was used. My explanation was that fear was the resounding thought on my mind. Started out as politics.
Anyway…now that I’ve had time to, well, sort of accept what has just happened here in America. After reading some other posts about the current issue and chatting at work with some folks, I have a big ol’ question.
Who did America just put into office? Does anyone know anything about his policies? His views on abortion? Gay rights? Big Government? Who cares that we just voted in the first African-American president? That should not be why this country is so excited about what just happened, and big day in history and all that. I’m not a racist by any means. If Obama had any good ideas I would have voted for him because the other options weren’t that great either, but in my opinion it was a lot better than what we are going to have.
We, America, don’t need a bigger government right now. Obama has made promises, dug a hole, that I’m afraid he’s going to bury himself in. He ran on change, well, we are going to get it. But any of that change we have left over, he’s going to take it and give it to someone, something, some cause, that doesn’t work.
People voted for a movement, not a man. Regardless of his issues. He wants national health care, free housing, free stuff for some folks. Who is going to pay for this if he is going to lower taxes?
Once you find out Joe across the street didn’t have to pay for his house your not going to want to pay for yours either (depending on the person) Some will be pulling the wagon some will be on it. We are going to have more people on the wagon than will be pulling and then the wagon will stop.
I do hope above all hope that I am completely wrong. I have a feeling that I’m not and the country, the folks that voted him in, are going to be ready to oust the guy after 2 years. Again, I hope I’m wrong. I have no choice but to give the man a chance. So I will.
So I ask, just in case I’m completely missing something, if you are reading this and voted for Obama, would you mind telling me why?
Be nice. I’m not wanting a debate really. I’m just wanting to see what I’m missing that you can see.
