I sometimes wonder how anyone could think of voting for Barack Obama in the upcoming November election. With that economy looming, liberals, Democrats, and water carriers are all spewing the same talking points again and again. What sets the question, what are Americans supposed to? Are we supposed to accept 8% unemployment as normal? Is 1% growth in GDP now considered to be great? Is the tax system that is already burdensome supposed to be considered too low?
We certainly can't take this opportunity to waste a long hot summer with few days of rain without mentioning our global warming is going to make something like mild winters and storm free summers and turn it into something terrible. This is something to be feared.
The changes that have come to this country in the past few years seem unbelievable. We have become more polarized politically than perhaps any other time in US history. We spend five or six years pleading for us to come together. That time has ended. Whether it's hopeless or not, we now stand to be hopelessly and helplessly divided. Welcome to the new era of the United States.
With the primary season finally winding down, the presidential candidates will finally be able to go head-to-head for the next six months. It's going to be interesting and it's going to be ugly. It's going to be inspiring and it's going to be negative. It will be a time to remember and a lot to forget.
