A friend of mine named Andrew posted this on his Facebook Profile. I felt obliged to share it with all of you…
PEOPLE ARE SHEEP
To My Fellow Americans,
First of all to the liberals – congratulations on your win fair and square. Well sort of I guess…maybe. Yet again, the population of America has successfully been goaded by the likes of NBC’s wannabe political analyst Luke “shamelessly riding on the coattails of my late father” Russert (to Matt Lauer regarding University of Virginia students on the Today Shopw “You have to remember, the smartest kids in the state go there, so it’s leaning a little bit towards Obama”) and other such highly educated individuals as Paris Hilton. Congratulations on following through and electing just who the media wanted you to vote for. What can we expect from an unbiased media that was more focused on the cost of Sarah Palin’s wardrobe than Barack Hussein’s experience (or lack thereof), connections to the credit crisis (particularly his greatest supporters Fannie and Freddie), or ever-changing ways of avoiding the question at hand? Wait a minute did anyone outside of the conservative media minority dare to ask him or the campaign a legitimate question to begin with?
Maybe you wanted to feel like you were part of something bigger than yourself. Maybe you voted for who your friends or parents told you to. Maybe you wanted to make history. Maybe you have no real understanding of politics, the U.S. Constitution, or the idea that the benefits of someone else’s hard work and determination are not yours for the plundering. Maybe you thought it was cool to vote for Obama. Maybe you actually researched the candidates and honestly felt he was the best choice. Whatever you reasons consider that all actions have consequences and that a lack of experience usually leads to more mistakes than successes. Not much different than the idea that your mom and dad were never so keen on you borrowing the car when you turned 16.
I for one am not looking forward to watching this country slide further and further away from a democratic republic and align itself closer and closer with a socialist regime in which entitlement and handouts are the norm; while the drive to succeed and personal desire to achieve become less important to a people that have less incentive to work for anything than ever before in our nation’s history. Maybe I’ll stop going to school, working, and paying taxes. Hey why not if I do then everyone’s good buddy Barack “Robin Hood” Obama will just give me someone else’s hard earned money to support myself and my family with. The next four years will likely hold less mistakes in public address, but far more mistakes on the issues that really matter. Doesn’t anyone read Animal Farm in school anymore?
But perhaps I am wrong. Maybe it’s not your fault. Maybe the republicans did not get out to vote as they should have. Maybe the campaign was run poorly to begin with. Maybe Sarah Palin was not the right choice for the vice presidential nomination. Whatever the problem was, America has spoken and surely McCain did not have the answer. I guess I shouldn’t be so worried. After all, we have change and I guess there is always hope, but what exactly is that supposed to mean anyway? Oh I forgot, no one really bothered to find that out first. Ooops. I guess it will be okay, what can happen in four years?
