No, no! I really have NOT lost my mind. Bear with me. Barack Obama may just be the best thing to happen in a generation for a number of reasons. In the many years I have been watching American politics - from a distance - he has done more to engage, awaken the American people than any other president. Oh sure, when George W. Bush was in office, certain pockets of America were afflicted with Bush Derangement Syndrome, which perpetuated oft-repeated demonstrations and slogans: Bush Lied, They Died; or No War for Oil, blah blah, followed by 'all in good fun and taste' posters that made any decent person cringe. Mostly though, while the fringe elements (aided and abetted by the mainstream media, of course,) were making asses of themselves, regular Americans were busy raising their families, earning a living, pretty much secure in the knowledge that America was safe from outside attacks.
Now we have Obama, and I see a conscious decision on the part of many Americans to be engaged in the protection of their country, that I had not witnessed before. Yes, I also see a huge divisiveness since the election of the silver-tongued senator who promised to unite America. This community organiser, who campaigned on the slogans of "Change yoiu can Believe in" and "Yes, we can!" is discovering that Americans who feel the most basic fabric of their country under threat, are not willing to sit idly by, and allow ANYONE, foreign or domestic, to tear apart the communities that ARE America.
After many years of watching America the beautiful on the world stage, I now see an underbelly of America that is ugly, with a president who travels the world in fine style (what about the carbon foot print?) and apologies to the world for the stellar reputation that America has enjoyed as a leader.

Now is not the time for couch potato politics, but for each and every one of us to get involved and active.
It is the time to remind our "Elected Officials" that they work for us, we don't work for them.
It is the time to teach Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and the other leaders of the Democratic Party that dissent is not treason.
It is the time to stop fearing our government, but have the government fear us.
It is the time to prevent the Tyranny of the Democratic Party from destroying our nation, our liberties, our rights.
Get involved, stay informed, speak out!
