Speak plainly love! Big words go amiss. Hope without the ray will lead to rope for the dope. What Americans want are Godly s-o-l-u-t-i-o-n-s to get them out of this spiraling, but solvable, dilemma. Too deep for you? Let's see.__________________________________
The terms, morose and depressed, have more appropriately defined the national mood before and particularly since the election of Barack Obama to step foot into the White House Oval Office. Commentators from all over (including this one) have escalated their voices against the Obama Administration agenda which is hurling our nation past socialism towards communism. And the American frustration, I believe, comes not so much from what Obama is doing as it is from what Congress and the judiciary are not doing to stop him and shut him down and oust him in accordance with the United States Constitution. Lord knows there are enough voices with enough evidence to support their charges against Obama.
Americans the most troubled by what they see happening in this country to try to destroy their families, banks, corporations, religious, and educational institutions are those who have believed the Constitution would prevail over any adverse situation facing this nation. What they are finding is that there is a lack of guts among the defenders of the American Constitution.
Local, state, and federal legislators have fought to be our elected representatives and squeezed out millions and billions of dollars from the hands of constituents only to turn their backs against voters. Then they go into hiding from them to do whatever it takes to make their elected office a stepping stone for a permanent place in the political arena or, at least, to shelter them for the rest of their life. Forget the little person.
Americans who speak in plain English are the least likely to get the ear of Congress. What's more, if they are perceived as not having any money or education or influence, they can just about forget it remains the arrogant response from most politicians. They have filled their offices with clones to shield them from trouble making outsiders who write or call them. And, if they really don't want to hear their complaints, they will shut down the telephone system and turn on their automated machines. I suppose their rationale for doing that must be -- at least they had provided a way for those who persist to be able to leave a message. But whether or not the officials or their staff would return calls or letters remains to be seen.
How can citizens trust their government which hides behind closed doors and invites in only their large campaign contributors or a few "victims" of situations which they can place on public exhibition during their "show and tell" moments in front of TV cameras?
The voices of the depressed and distressed are felt in the midst of riches. America must be rich, because government officials, beginning with Obama, are getting money from somewhere to put on their extravagant black tie galas enlivened with in-person entertainment and sumptuous meals and fine wines -- but not for welcoming foreign dignitaries, as was the case with recent visitor, Prime Minister Gordon Brown of the United Kingdom.
To add insult to injury from Obama -- somebody who is supposed to be savvy enough to be the leader of the free world -- the Obamas embarrassed America by coming up with some very cheap gifts. Obama had the nerve to present (and then announce) a gift of a set of 25 DVDs to the British Prime Minister. And, I heard somebody on TV say, "You know Michelle hurriedly ran down to the White House Gift Shop to buy gifts for the Prime Minister's children" -- toy helicopters!
The administration sent Secretary of State Hillary Clinton overseas where she had the opportunity to meet with a top Russia dignitary, Sergei Lavrov. She took out another cheap gift from a "green" box. She was so elated to be able to present it that she didn't even give him chance to open it for himself. She stood in front of the TV cameras and opened the box only to find the message they had inscribed in Russian said something totally different than what they had intended. To say nothing of the fact that Lavrov didn't hesitate to correct Clinton as she let out a guffaw as though it was nothing. Personally, I believe somebody in the state department (or the White House?) knew exactly what they had inscribed on the "gift."
So, if, as "they" say its not the gift that counts but the thought, then what kind of thinking is coming from out of the White House? They are playing not-so-cute games even on the international scene and it is degrading and disgusting.
But, of course, what do I know? I know this. That I don't know everything, but one thing I do know is that, if all those educated voices who profess to know so much really did, then none of us would still be waiting for somebody to come up with the solution and r-e-s-o-l-u-t-i-o-n to this ObamaTRAUMA. They would have stepped up by now and yelled louder than anybody else, except they would not back track or apologize when called out for saying exactly what the nation's citizens are waiting to hear somebody have enough nerve to say!
Tell me, if you can, about what solutions are being enforced by the United States Congress to shut Obama down while America is still the "Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave?" I am getting sick and tired of running into so many regurgitated reports which have already been published or archived about Obama and his edu(ma)cated(sic) Chicago crew but remains without coming up with anything near to Godly resolution.
Stepping up? Don't worry about stepping on toes! We know the solution, its just that Congress has closed its doors and shut its ears. YELL LOUDER!!! Impeach Obama NOW!
P.S. As I finished up this article, the Glen Beck Show came on (Fox News TV) and he is voicing what I have written in this article to publish. We are of the same spirit, but he has more listeners. Nevertheless, all of us must write what we receive when we receive it. God is the One who continues to confirm. Amen to Glen Beck!! pass it on -- Honestly, I did not plagiarize Beck's discourse on TV. All I know is that it is SPIRIT.
Oh no!!! Has Beck read my mind???????
