Post Election, 2008

I have avoided being political on this blog, on the rare times when I actually make an effort to post. That is because I intended this to be an outlet for my own creativity, such as it is.

However, in the light of the elections just finished in the United States, let me please say that I am above all disappointed in the results. Not necessarily disappointed that Barack Obama won, but that so many people who should know better are still under the impression that there is substance to the man. Never once during his campaign, nor during the time leading up to his campaign, did he outline a substantial indication as to what he truly believes in or plans to do for this country. He is a fine orator, and charismatic. But his record speaks for itself, and the few times he has allowed anything to be broadcast about his beliefs, it has come across, at least to me, as socialist.

Now, it's done. Time to buckle down and make whatever government we have work. Thomas Jefferson, in the Declaration of Independence, said this: "Governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed." (emphasis added) It is time for us as citizens to consent to that which is just,and not allow the government to have so much power that we are swept along for the ride, out of control, tyrannized. Make the voices heard for justice and freedom.

God Bless The United States of America. We're gonna need it.
