I want to begin by saying that I respect and support President Obama and his Administration in its efforts and intentions. Personally, I could not imagine the pressure that they all live under when confronting the issues he and they must contend with on a daily basis. When you find yourself immediately responsible for policies put into place by the previous administration that essentially was an assault on the middle-class, working-class and poverty stricken Americans I can only have empathy for you.
When faced with a question of how to unite the state of America, I believe the answer is simple, but damn near impossible to navigate. To journey beyond the impeding mountains of ignorance, fear and the timid, both politically and socially is no easy task.
How does one Administration correct the noted and realized failures and assaults of the previous Administration? This is true not only for the Obama Administration, but also for the Bush Administration, Clinton Administration and beyond. This will be true for whoever comes after President Obama. In my opinion this is what everyone seems to be missing.
Have we become so blinded with a bland uniformity of opinion that we can not form a fair solution?
When the news become nothing more than liberal and conservative entertainment who are we to believe?
Republicans & Conservatives are just as guilty as Democrats & Liberals. Whenever one of either group speaks truthfully about an issue, they are almost instantly silence or discredited as if they are content with discord. If we are to unite the state of America we have to consider others beyond ourselves. The bland uniformity of opinion is what is aiding and abetting the purveyors of division, the insurgents of hate, our common enemy.
Those who are unfamiliar with history may not understand or misinterpret what I have to say next, but let them talk. Because I have not given up on the promise of America despite all the country has done and in some cases continue to do that contradicts that promise. The mindset of some who are fearful of anyone who doesn’t look like or agree with them is the same mindset of a domestic terrorist. I’m referring to the domestic terrorist not in the typical definition, but in terms of how their inconsiderate ideology continues to destroy and sabotage their lives with the bland uniformity of opinion.
So instead of criticizing the President with signs and protests that reveal more of who you are and what you represent, why not try to demonstrate consideration for a person who must consider you.
