“What history distinctly earns through patience and concision futures squander in blind repetition and excess.”

Midterm elections are in less than three weeks and all of the politicians have their striped tents set up with three rings of circus acts, well-rehearsed, under the pointed tops of their campaigns. In my state, Louisiana, I have an Obama-backer, Charlie Melancon, and a republican, David Vitter, who is associated with the exploits of a brothel in New Orleans.

Barack Obama, not far down the road, will be up for re-election against someone else and that circus will be comparable to a holiday in Rome’s ancient coliseum, lions and gladiators, disingenuous baby-kissing, people all over the place being entertained by ruthless political posturing that serves no real purpose but to manipulate people to a higher degree than the opponent.

Until a vast amount of people in America can begin to understand that their happiness is not contingent upon the politicians they elect, we are getting nowhere as a nation. Self-assertion and serving a purpose of your own, with pride attributed to yourself and not to the pockets of others, is the first step in limiting government.

Some of the greatest moments and eras in history, such as when America fought for a revolution that they should not have statistically won, were derived from a sense of humble patience and a concise will for people everywhere to succeed as long as they chose to try. Great moments in history are not achieved by repeating mistakes of the past over and over again. The mistake I am referring to, which other countries have tried and others still practice is Communism. It is clear as can be if you take a moment to think about it. Assess your lifestyle and everything you have right now and then imagine being a citizen of Cuba or China. Do you want to be in the pocket of the government? Do you not want to think for yourself or not have any ambitions? Do you not want to have a voice? Socializing America even slightly is a contradiction of what America stands for and socialism is also a last resort for any country to continue. We are not in “last resort” status and for Obama to move in that direction is an insult to everything we work hard for everyday.

In America, great moments come from letting this country be what it was intended to be and President Obama’s decisions reflect no intentions of letting this country be what it was meant to be.

1,961.7 miles to go.
