I wrote about this question awhile ago. In but not of
There was some baby steps in discussion but I wanted to put this back out to see if there is, indeed,any interest.
Our political landscape isn’t volatile, it’s not exciting, it’s not even promising. It’s scary, it’s glum and it’s full of 2nd rate politicians stumping for 1st rate positions.
Obama has been courting our fair city with lofty and grandiose promises and saying all the sweet-nothings that the liberals want to hear. Bill’s been here and little Chelsea even showed up to give press for the Clinton name and for Dear Old Mom this last weekend at a local sporting event.
Oregon is a big deal. Apparently. Who knew, eh?
In my opinion, Barak “Hussein is my cousin” Obama is the “token minority” in a field of politically correct pretenders. He is the epitomization of affirmative action. No merit, no quality, no passion. Just put in place to fill the quota. He’s freaky because he’s so waffle-y. A mouth with pre-determined talking points. A puppet. Well, that and his nebulous religious affiliation, his NAME (Hussein)!?!, and his insane little MIchelle “The Mouth” Obama.
In a world full of politicians THIS was the best they could come up with?
I have a friend of a friend, Rick Dancer. He’s a believer who has taken the responsibility of civic duty very personally. He’s running for Secretary of State here in Oregon. While I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting him, I’ve seen his passion for honesty, equality and fairness in his writing, his lifestyle and the reference from my friend.
Do we sit back and huddle in our churches? Do we stock up food and decide to pull a Ruby Ridge of our own? Do we march on Washington? Are we afraid? Angry? Indifferent? Judgmental?
It’s our country too. We can’t sit around apathetically saying and doing nothing and then blame the direction of our leaders on everyone else.
But that’s just what I think….
To quote Mr. Bill…
“What say you?”
