12. The Ugly Truth

 

When the then Candidate Mr Obama became the front runner for the Democrats I predicted that if he became President there would be a huge and ugly backlash. Unfortunately, seeing the real ugliness in Washington my prediction was sadly true.

I am truly appalled at the divisiveness here in the United States in 2012 and I believe we are near the abyss on the timing to have what is happening with what has been called the Arab Spring.

This election is between those who have and those who need. A small group of elected in our Congress and Senate have sabotaged or blocked any Bill that is Progressive or proposed by President Obama and replaced with no other viable option. That is why the GOP is the Party of No.

Had Mrs.Clinton been the Presidential nominee and I am being quite honest we would not be in this pot of ugliness.

"WE THE PEOPLE" need to stand up and stop the GOP in their tracks and not allow them to steal another election.

We are a melting pot of humanity made up of many cultures and religions. We are not a singular society and have the right to live our lives as we choose.

When I was in the Navy we were one and defended the Constitution of the United States from all enemies Domestic & Foreign. We raised our hands to take that oath. Some of our leaders have forgotten that so we need to remind them that we the Citizens will not tolerate one Party with one Negative idea to win. It was not what our Founders so many years ago wanted, not then or not now in 2012.
