This nation is the proof of what can happen when people cooperate, when people stand for a cause. It seems lately however that we as a people are so self interested that we have lost sight of our cause. Its all become about power.
Our government is set up to combat that. I believe what we see happening right now with people speaking out, is this nation doing what our forefathers set it up to do, if it got off course. I know many people disagree on many things. I know many people reading this may not agree with me on a lot of things, but I’ll bet you we can find a lot of things to agree on.
Sometimes I wonder if we are so caught up repeating what we’ve heard, that we really aren’t thinking for ourselves. What I do know, and what I think most Americans can agree with, is that when you are in a financial crunch, you can’t spend your way out of it. I think we can also agree, we don’t know need people leading who say they know better than everyone else what we should do, but who’s solutions are political and not practical.
My hope is this state of the union will not be a speech to appease or please anyone. I hope this Speech will be one that is forthright and honest. That says, we need to change our plan of action. We have been majoring on the minors, and arguing over the peripherals while our nation is increasingly taking on debt and passing it on to our children’s Children. My hope is this speech will not be politically motivated but wisdom motivated. I Hope our President, doesn’t try to save face but instead faces the challenge of leading us out of the current situation. It doesn’t matter how we arrived here the time for arguing that is over. What matters is, that we think about our future. Not our personal political future but our nations future, our children’s future.
At some point Ladies and Gentleman in washington. Democrat, Republican, and Independent, this has to become about reality, not theory. The time for catch phrases and political posturing is over. We need you to pull together, and be solution oriented. I hope the president can pull the nation together tonight, and speak to the important issues, and take responsibility to lead us out. Then act responsibly, and competently for futures sake.
I honor our leaders, but if they can’t get together and put the politics aside and come up with a solution that will not bankrupt our children, and the legacy of this great nation, we should kindly ask all of them to step aside, and vote in some people who have the integrity to lead. Come on leaders, we need you.
My hope is that this state of the union speech will be the beginnings of a turn around that will make next years state of the union a much more positive reality.
That’s what I have to say, What do you have to say?
