Everyone is hating everyone

Recently, a world-renowned neurosurgeon was a guest speaker at the National Prayer Breakfast. Dr. Benjamin Carson’s address of just 27 minutes was filled with more inspiration, love of country and uplifting words than we have heard from President Barack Obama in the past fast four years (“Conservative Dr. Ben Carson speech upstages Obama at prayer breakfast”).

A student of history, the doctor spoke of the importance of educating citizens about the founding of our country to enable them to join in the current national discussion about the problems we face. If people are not fully informed about the carefully constructed republic in which we live and the brilliantly conceived Declaration of Independence and Constitution given us by our Founding Fathers, they will not know enough to defend the rights laid out when those documents are attacked. As a result, we will suffer under the shackles of political correctness.

Mr. Obama pledged to be the president of all the people. Never in my lifetime has this country been more divided than it is today because of the deliberate instigation of the president. Blacks hate whites, the young resent the old, illegal aliens demand the rights of citizens, unions oppose nonunion labor, the poor rail against the rich and the “have-nots” feel the “haves” have stolen from them.

Will we end up as the Divided States of America?

    Do you really think that America is divided because of Barack Obama? Our president is one of very few people in Washington putting forth real, true effort to work with those he disagrees with. Even as those who he’s trying to meet halfway make sure there can be no ground gained, the lengths the GOP has gone to in order to sabotage him are astounding! And sabotage is putting it lightly. You think these divisions are something new and they are instigated by the president… I don’t know how to say this, but the President’s agenda has always been clear: to ensure the American people’s wishes are carried out by the government. Or, at least the majority of Americans, that is. You know, the have-nots, the African-Americans, the young, the undocumented immigrants, the ones that voted for him!
    President Obama is everything bigots hate, and I personally couldn’t be more proud that he is my president and I couldn’t be more ashamed of the way the other half reacted. Yet each day I am let down again, and each day I pray for the GOP to see the American people in our true color and not as red or blue ballots in a box.
