The thing that I hate the worse about the Tea Party, Glenn Beck, Bill O’Reilly, and Rush Limbaughs of our Country is that they all make the rest of us look as though we are a Nation of hate mongers, whiners,groaners, quitters and spoiled brats when we are anything but that. Americans have never been that. We are and always have been, a Nation of proud people, invention and hard workers who join together in a time of crises to help each other. We are the people who dismiss people who tell us that it can’t be done and instead show them that yes it can be done.
What exactly was the point of gathering at the Lincoln Memorial to bring Honor back to our Country by a group of people who have done nothing but destroy the honor of the American Spirit? How can people who have never shown anything but hate towards the President of our Proud Nation along with their fellow-man bring back honor when they themselves have never owned honor? They are the problem and certainly not the solution to what is causing the division of our Country. At no time have we been more cognizant of the sacrifice and bravery that our young people have shown when they arrived home or went off to war. As a Nation we have been committed to not repeat the mistakes of Viet Nam when it comes to our military families.
Yes, it is a time of struggle that takes great effort and concern to gather our strength to come back with hope for a better and promising future, but we as a Nation are not sitting around smothering ourselves in hatred towards the man in office that did not create the problem. No protests ever lasts longer, than those that are paid to throw up a smoke screen to the real truth,or the ones created by the special interests. It does not make one bit of difference to them what OBama does do or accomplishes they simply are looking for and finding fault in it. In years past when the economy tanked and another Administration came in we were allowed to hope for a better tomorrow while we geared up and got started on it.
Less than two hundred years ago we took a wide open plains with mountains that others felt impassable with the great desert to contend with and turned our Nation into one of transportation and agriculture that still surpasses every other Nation in the World. We went into an Industrial Revolution followed by technology that was, at one time,second to none. No one has ever been able to match the diversity and the man hours of labor to the American worker.
We are a Nation that was built on diversity and have shown the rest of the world how it can be and is the greatest Democracy ever to find its own strength through its share of hardship. We are not losers, quitters, or complainers we are the Nation of Invention and just as agriculture,transportation, industry and technology changed our economical future and our landscape we are now geared for and can do the same with renewable energy if we can get the naysayers, special interests, and greed out of our way and get it done.
Instead the right-wing politics and their message of hate has done nothing more than shift the blame away from the American Spirit that pulls together in time of need and reaches out to help each other regardless of race, creed, and color. As bad as Katrina was or 911 was, there was not a large city, medium size town, or small village that did not reach down in their pocket and help their fellow-man in time of need and crises. Just as an aside: Can any of us even imagine what would have happened to our Nation if this group of hate mongers had been organized and it happened on OBama’s watch instead of the Republican watch? We rose to the same honor when it came to Haiti, so I know our American Spirit is not dead. This is who we are. We are not a people who passes unfair blame and fault off as a smoke screen to blame someone else that did not create the problem.
My message to the right is: If you don’t understand anything else then understand you are the last people that we want to take back our Country. You are the very people who are responsible for tearing us and our tenacity apart. Why in the world would any feeling, caring, thinking American want any of you in charge of America? You are the very spirit of what the problem is in America and certainly not the solution.
