American Values

Someday, somewhere, somebody is going to wake up and know what America is all about. We are a nation of many different lines of thought but united under two things no matter how you slice it. We are a nation under God and we are a nation of laws. Man made laws and God's laws are not that far from the truth. Sometimes man gets the idea of what God meant wrong but eventually we get it right. We are not a perfect country and we are forever changing as a nation. That is why we hold elections to move our nation forward. Where we are today may seem out of touch ten or twenty years from now. That is called progress. God is in the details and all he or she asks is that we love one another. Pretty simple message when you really think about it.

We as a nation will learn from our mistakes and our next President will not even remotely resemble the current one. Not to be overly religious but I thank God for that. George Bush will go down in the history books as the president that did nothing for his country but insight fear. Not a kind post for his work but the millionaires that will pay for his presidential library or whatever he decides to build to his own honor will matter little when it comes to the truth.

The candidates are lining up for the elections coming in November and you have to ask yourself if you believe in them as they believe in you? Do you want an honest government or do you want more of the same? Do you want new blood or more of the same corruption and passing the buck? How many special prosecutors do we need to run our country? How long do we as a nation have to look like we are run by a majority of crooks and liars?

When I was first enrolled to vote, my Dad offered me two pieces of advice that had always worked for him when voting. You should vote for the Democrat first and if he is Irish that is the one you vote for. He used to also say that the rest of them were in it for themselves. I'm thinking that Dad wasn't far off in his vote.

That's an interesting way to cast your vote, but I daresay it's probably better than what many people do, which is vote for whomever they're told to vote for, or who just vote "block republican" or "block democrat..."
