Day15 Monday 09/13/10

I ran 3.2 miles today. I have surpassed the soreness transition and my breathing is adapting to the challenge. I find that Sundays are my weakest runs and Mondays are my strongest. That may have something to do with drinking too much beer on Saturdays, whereas I am certain that the success of Mondays is attributed to the sense of urgency I have to start each week with a big number.

The purpose this blog serves, as I have explained, is to help get Obama out of the White House in 2012. As monumental of a victory as that would be, what happens next, though? I have always listened only half-heartedly to other peoples’ grievances and let their unrests go unacknowledged due to the fact that for all of their complaints they would offer no solution. Anyone can stand on a soapbox and complain about everything under the sun, but to offer a solution, regardless of whether it is agreeable or not, is something that wears on the reticence of any listener. I now find myself guilty of protesting too much without a solution other than to elect someone else.

This week I will gather my thoughts and try to earn the time you spend reading these posts by presenting solutions. They may not be agreeable or brilliant but it is the least any reader deserves. There is nothing worse than a person who complains only for the sake of complaining and I do not want to be that guy.

Coincidentally, the President of the United States of America is the last person any American citizen wants to see on a soapbox complaining about his problems and blaming everyone else except for the people he appointed to be in control of solutions for the shortcomings we face. His solutions are new problems. He has stimulated our economy with monopoly money that our children and grandchildren are going to have to pay back with American dollars. He wants to tax the mildly rich all the way up to the extravagantly wealthy. None of this makes sense. The economy is reaping no reward in proportion to the unprinted money he is pumping into it, if he gets his wish to tax the way he chooses then he will force much of America’s wealthy citizens and the businesses they own to go to other countries, his Health Care plan is a proven failure everywhere that its model has been used, and, for God’s sake, will you just show us your Birth Certificate?

My impression of Barack Obama is that he wants to create a level playing field for all Americans, which is also level with other countries. He wants national and, ultimately, global equality where perseverance, talent, desire and will are all replaced by reliance on government, mediocrity, idleness and self-defeat. His vision is a utopia and it is deeply disappointing that in the twenty-first century a president of the greatest country ever would believe so ardently in the proven failure, which is Communism.

So what now?

2,046.4 miles to go.

  1. I agree with you 100%! If i weren't physically handicapped, I would be right there running along with you. I'm not a wealthy man by any means, but I've worked tooth and nail for the things that I have....and it kills me to see a communist trying his best to take it away from me to give it to someone who hasn't put in the blood, sweat and tears that I've had to. I will happily donate any of my time and talents to support you.
