ran 2.6 miles
Scanning over articles and current events from the past week, I found a lot of bone and not much meat. There was a lot of interesting news but it’s the same predictable material day after day. Countries in Europe are protesting and rioting, Obama is doing everything he can to save his cause, firing and hiring administrative members, blaming republicans for everything that’s wrong, the Pope and the Muslim religion can’t keep the ink off the papers across the globe, Senators and Representatives are spending millions upon millions of dollars to campaign for seats that only earn an average salary of $174,000 per year…

…Let’s take a step back. How can anyone justify spending millions of dollars on vinyl signs, billboards, advertisements and appearances when a candidate’s actual plan is the real substance of the matter at hand? And whatever this man’s or woman’s plan is should be intuitive and self-explanatory. It should not require millions of dollars to sell an election. It should take a plan, common sense, and voters who are interested in the state of their country and educated about its history and current events.

I’m going to crawl out on a thin limb and make a judgmental call. President Obama’s entire plan is to make things work out for everybody and to make things equally enjoyable in America. While I believe this effort is a tenet of communism, I am curious to know why Barack Obama, or Bush, because I know that is who he would blame it on, has not said, “Wake up, America! If you want something you have to earn it. The government is here to serve as little intervention in your life as possible. We want you to succeed by yourself and you have every ability to do it. So what are you waiting for?”

That’s my America.

1,993.4 miles to go.
