It was my intention to write a response to the President’s State of the Union speech and though I had completed 75 percent of it I determined it would be more of the same. Many bloggers quote statistics and point out information that promotes his or her cause. I came in late to the State of the Union and so perhaps my first impression was not as it should be. What As I listened to the President I tried to find something positive to focus on without success. I admit, I never trusted him, there has always been something about Barack H. Obama that would not allow me to embrace him as someone who would be good for this nation and to date I believe I am right.
There are quite a few “issues” addressing the United States right now. Unfortunately, because of the leadership within this nation these problems are only getting worst. It is because of the leadership, in particular President Obama, that the state of the union is divided.
Once upon a time when Democrats and Republicans strongly disagreed with one another they found common ground to make policies that were good for present and future generations. After five plus years of Barack Obama this nation no longer chooses to agree to respectfully disagree. We are a divided nation, not just politically but spiritually, socially, economically and morally. It is now a good thing to blatantly disrespect traditional values, ignore the constitution and attempt to invalidate Christianity. Because of the agenda of selfish, ignorant individuals certain segments within the United States have made our differences the basis for laws, lawsuits and political policies backed by the Attorney General under the guidance of the President.
It does not take much common sense to come to the conclusion that no law can change a man’s heart. Americans are being forced to be accept individuals despite their private lifestyles, if the operative word is “private” then if no one ask no one should be telling: common sense! Those who refuse to accept homosexuality as a natural lifestyle;, do not want tax payer dollars to pay for abortions; want to stop individuals from entering the country illegally; and want the same high educational standards for all children in the public school system, are being systematically silenced.
Christians are being sued because they do not want to photograph a same-sex union, or bake a wedding cake for a homo-sexual couple. One atheist can sue because she does not want any Bibles in any hotels and win, though no one is forcing her to read it. Courts have to decide if nuns have to provide birth control pills to their employees. This foolishness that is running rampant throughout the country is the result of a group of self centered individuals who want it there way or no way.
The Liberal base becomes angry when Conservatives do not fall into agreement with their definition of America. Since 2008 we have had a President who agrees 100 percent with concepts that are anti-Christian, borderline unconstitutional and anti-capitalism which makes liberals happy. Most media outlets have taken it upon themselves to promote a socialist agenda that encourages the blatant disrespect of those who all themselves Republican. In exchange for not agreeing with the President Conservatives are called racist, sexist, homophobic and if you are Black the list of derogatory names is long. Liberals are angry and the spew their angry rhetoric wherever they can to the extent that they have now began the process of revising history to validate their ideas.
Ignorance is simply lack of knowledge. Day after day I see my conservative friends share facts that support their words while liberals share words that sound good but do not have a basis. Lies are acceptable to this current administration if it allows for the development of their agenda. Longterm consequences, unintended consequences, facts, and commonsense have no place in the hearts and minds of the Obama group.
“My people perish for lack of knowledge” (Hosea 4:6) is truer today than when God said it thousands of years ago. The amount of ignorance that plagues our nation right now is jaw dropping. Liberals, driven by their own selfish wants and desires, have been able to promote laws that divide this nation when it was on the road to unity.
It has been about a month since the President of the United States gave his State of the Union address, he has spoken many times since. With 2014 elections quickly approaching I have no doubt more divisive actions will be carried out by the Commander-in-Chief. It is bad that we do not have leadership within the Republican organization that is able to bring people together. Five years after the President took office we have become a weak and divided nation but this is just my opinion.
