With the re-election of the president, it is my hope that we as a country take a step back and look at the situation facing us as a NATION today. We as a nation threw the red flag, issuing a challenge to our leaders. After all, we are all in this together right? We put in place elected officials to represent us. President Obama faces the one of the most difficult challanges of any president in our history. The nation is truly divided. He must reach across the aisle more than ever before. Likewise, politicians who polarize issues must stop getting red in the face from anger and get red in the face from hard work, finding solutions to problems instead of creating more to push foolish agendas. I truly believe the next four years will set the precedent for the next fifty. If we cannot come together as a nation and get behind the elected leaders, we will fall farther into the abyss. I voted for Romney but I am prepared to not complain as long as our too-large government shakes itself free from the rust and begins running as a well oiled machine. This all starts at the local level. We the people must not accept sloth from our leaders. We must show them that we can work together and not be led like sheep to slaughter.
Do you guys think we can do it? There has been a lot of mud-slinging here the last few months. Are the main slingers prepared to trade in the mud balls for pies? Or will we continue the downfall of America, spitting and kicking like brats as we light the matches that burn our playhouse to the ground?
Will President Obama accept the challenge that this re-election presents? How with Republicans respond?
