politics as usual

We all need to get our priorities straight.

The brave new world awaits for US citizens who wanted change...but we are cautioned to be careful what we wish for.  If your expectations are high because your emotions are high in this post-election aftermath, prepare yourself for the possibility of disappointment.  Our government is the best system in the world at this point in history, at least considering the complexity of our society, but due to its size is also an unwieldy juggernaut of bureacracy that has its own inertia.  Like a slow-moving freight train,  abrupt stops and course changes will not occur when we grab hold of the rails along the sides of the engine and cars.  As an independent, I was not especially impressed with either presidential candidate in the 2008 election, however I tend to lean a bit to the right and felt that was the lesser of the poor choices inasmuch as my priorities are perhaps not quite as selfish as some.  Rather that look for an administration to take care of my personal needs such as health care, income, etc, I am more concerned with keeping this great nation safe from its many enemies.  I know from personal experience that a major portion of the worlds countries want to bring us to our knees and no amount of sanctions, talk, diplomatic meetings or financial concessions will alter that basic attitude. The radicals among them, and they are many, simply want to kill us and take our resources.  Our military and intelligence communities have been decimated several times by politicians who have a more narrow agenda, and historically, they have always been left-leaning socialistic in their attitudes.  Let us hope our new President has an open mind toward the reality of our world situation as he is exposed to facts and experience he has not previously known.
