It never ceases to amaze me how some people parrot political talking points without as much as a yearning to know the truth. They will scour the Internet and find blogs and links that support their skewed positions and reinforce their belief systems with the ‘facts’ that support their conclusions. Once their opinions are set, it’s off to battle. I encountered one such person last year who accused me of picking a fight with her. I simply looked on my wall and saw an offensive picture of Obama and responded accordingly. Yes, I got acerbic, but this disgusting picture ofour President was on my news feed from a friend I thought had more intelligence than this. His friend and I went back and forth without ONE word from him. Hmmm. Anyway, the point that she was making was so off base I felt compelled to comment after I had already commented. I was rude to her at times and I apologized for being rude, however, I have about had it with idiotic and moronic behavior from people who refuse to go to the library and do the research necessary before they start spewing their lies.
I have spent the time researching our president because I wasn’t originally for him; I was for Hilary. When he became the choice I dug in to find out more about him. I was impressed and astonished by his dedication as a community organizer all the way up to the Senate. He was on a fast track but was well equipped to handle the ride. He is a deliberate and thinking man who weighs out the options before rendering decisions. He reads the letters of everyday people and understands their plight. He knows that our leaders have sold out the American people by sending our jobs to China. He knows that we must control guns more effectively to secure the safety of our children. He knows that we all need universal health care. Yet, the other side besmirches him for going after Osama bin Laden, drone strikes and the handling of our financial crises. They corkscrew him at every turn with their subtleracial remarks. Yet, he takes the high road.
We finally have a leader who cares about us and the other side does whatever they can to convince their constituency that he is corrupt, that he is evil and that he is NOT American. They only thing that they have proven is that they are nothing but bullies on a playground who want to get their way and they will do whatever they can to get it. They need to grow up, man up and people up. They need to realize that the world they once knew and used to pad their wallets at our expense is coming to a slow death. The lily white constituency is being slowly replaced by African Americans, Hispanic Americans and Oriental Americans. The religious right Christian Bible beating constituency is being replaced by Atheist Americans, Muslim Americans and LBGT Americans.
The war pig constituency is being replaced by those who seek peace in this country and value the lives of our young adults enough to not send them overseas to die. The corporate banker constituency is being replaced by those who want decent opportunities for growth and expansion without being subjected to financial slavery. The commonality in the above terms is American. We are growing and expanding into beings that are more aware of our citizenship in this world. We are becoming more advanced and we are doing it together. We are, in essence, blessing ourselves with Divine love.
There will always be those who will not see the truth right in front of them. It is our job to enlighten them and help them to understand that the truth in Divine love is the most important thing we can share. Please pray for this planet and all life on it. We are at a critical time in our history and as the Beatles said, “And in the end, the love you take, Is equal to the love you make.” ~Dean A. Banks, D.D. (Spirituality Guidance Channel)
