Eulogy or Epiphany for America
Eulogy or Epiphany for America
America’s Eulogy Could Begin to Take Shape on Election Day
Well it seems the election is upon us. It’s time to decide the direction of the United States of America for the future. Much of the world has voiced their preference and the American media has long demonstrated its preference. The first exit polls are in from Israel and they were a bit of a surprise. Reason as opposed to faith in the iconoclast seems to have ruled the day in Israel, going against the wisdom of prior polls. However, it’s too early to cheer for a possible epiphany occurring widely in the electorate.
Nevertheless, I have high hopes that an epiphany in working America’s psyche IS taking place. What else can I do, given the alternative that a eulogy for America and her Constitution will be coming in the not too distant future? Therefore, I choose to have HOPE that a majority of Americans will search their heart of hearts and say, NO, I’m not going to put America’s future at risk with someone who in so inexperienced and unknown.
I have hope that a majority of American’s will say, NO, I’m not going to be told who to vote for just because 90 percent of the media is in love with their fictionalized portrayal of Sen. Obama. I have hope that a majority of America’s will say, NO, I’m not going to vote for someone just because my spouse or kids may be infatuated with the illusory idea of the “One” who can solve all America’s problems – I will rely on reason as opposed to faith. I have enormous hope that a majority of Americans will say, NO, I am not racist just because I oppose Sen. Obama, there a hundreds of valid reasons to oppose the Senator.
I have high hopes that a majority will say NO, I don’t want America to go down the path of becoming a socialist nation because there has never been a successful socialist nation that didn’t trample individual freedoms. I have hope that a majority of Americans will say, NO, redistribution of wealth by the government clearly puts us on the path of socialism.
I have high hopes that a majority of Americans will say, NO, it is really important not to forget what we learned from 9/11; that there is a patient deadly enemy of America who is set on our destruction and imposing Islamic law worldwide. I have hope that Americans will say, NO, Sen. Obama’s inclination towards appeasement will not work to protect us from such dangerous, determined foes. I have hope that a majority of Americans will say, NO, remembering the lessons of Chamberlain’s appeasement before the start of WWII. I have hope that Americans will think about Sen. Obama’s recent possible violations the Logan Act regarding Iraq and Kenya.
I have hopes that a majority of Americans will say, NO, we don’t know enough about who Sen. Obama is and we refuse to be sold a bill of goods without facts to back his narrative up. I have hopes that Americans will not suspend their common sense when analyzing Sen. Obama’s connection to ACORN and their connections to voter fraud.
I have hope that a majority of Americans will say, NO, I’m not completely convinced that Sen. Obama has played by all the rules in this election. Why would numerous lawsuits spring up that challenge Sen. Obama’s eligibility to hold the Office of the President? The lawsuit Berg v. Obama being the most prominent is now filing motions in the Supreme Court. I have high hopes that a majority of Americans will say, NO, I’m not going to vote for Sen. Obama unless he steps away from his instinctual role of legal tactician and provides credible evidence to refute the allegations raised in Berg v. Obama. I have hope that Americans will say, NO, we do not want a Constitutional Crisis being the focus of our attention for the coming months.
I have hope that a majority of Americans will say, NO, one’s past close associations do matter in judging a candidate’s judgment, beliefs, predispositions, and goals. I have hope that a majority of Americans will say, NO, the media has not been a purveyor of sufficient or completely accurate information regarding Sen. Obama’s past associations.
We need to know more about Sen. Obama’s past associations. We need to know much more about Rev. Wright and black theology, William Ayers and Socialism, Frank Davis and Communism, Bernadine Dorn, Rashid Khalidi, Tony Rezko, ACORN and voter fraud, Farrakhan, Father Pfleger, Larry Sinclair and sex/drugs, Robert Blackwell, Jr., Nadhmi Auchi, and many, many more. I have hope that Americans will say, NO, because they want to know who will be sleeping in the Lincoln Bedroom.
I have a determined hope that a majority of American’s will say, NO, it really is OK to be patriotic and be proud to be Americans.
It continues to amaze me that the media has managed to accomplish their goal of having Sen. Obama on the verge of taking (not winning, since that implies playing fair) the Presidency.
In an America where the schools are not focused on teaching American history and its system of laws and justice, why should I expect people not to be easily misled? I suppose in an America where everyone is working so hard to make ends meet, there is not enough time to teach and learn the traditions and history that have brought us this far as a people; and has guided our decisions about governance. In an America where many focus so much time on You Tube, I-Pods, the Internet, Video Games and MTV; it must be hard for people to acquire a personal awareness of American principals and understandings; those set forth in the Declaration of Independence and our Constitution.
I worry that many today see life as a big American game show with few real consequences concerning each person’s individual participation. It’s a game and each wants to be the Obama avatar created by the media as cool, hip, and inspiring; or one of his devotees. Unfortunately, it’s not a game. Each voter must look closely at their choices and realize that the consequences of making an uninformed decision cannot be undone by pushing the replay button.
Today, the meaning of America seems to have been lost from our common lexicon. We must get it back if America is to have a long and prosperous future. Don’t get me wrong, many of us do know America; however, our numbers appear to be dwindling. A McCain Presidency will buy time to get America on the right track for all of us by bringing ethics, honesty, courage, and experience to Washington. I know the America I love and I will hold fast to my belief that America’s journey has been a noble one, not a perfect one, but a truly noble one. I’m not ready to write her eulogy and that’s why I’m voting for McCain/Palin.
In the privacy of the voting booth exists the time and space to have an epiphany and make a sound choice for America’s future. Here’s hoping you all have a grand epiphany soon!
Even if you are a minority of one, the truth is the truth.
