Today’s Wichita Eagle editorial is typical of many that wish our new president success — for the good of the nation, of course.
What, however, does success for President Obama mean? There are two (or more) ways that success might be realized.
One definition of success is that President Obama is able to lead our nation into a long period of peace and prosperity.
A second definition is that he is able to implement the items and programs on his agenda. This agenda includes things like quick implementation of an economic stimulus program, but also longer-term goals such as nationalization of health care and cap-and-trade to reduce carbon emissions. The problem is that these things, I believe, will be harmful to our country.
So how can we wish President Obama success in implementing harmful programs?
We don’t wish success in implementing harmful programs.
We support the President of the United States and
share and receive respect as provided within the
constitution of the United States of America.
We are not a perfect people. We allow and respect the
President the opportunity and
gift of learning, evaluating and giving us knowledge of what
challenges exist in the United States of America,
beyond our own immediate knowledge.
We work as a people and learn and teach when allowed.
We respect not all of the decisions made by a leader
could be construed as
‘healthy’ for the country.
That is why we have elections every ‘4’ years in the United
States of America.
In all parts of the world there are elections.
Those elections are not always just about the people in the
country of the election. The people ‘elected’ are
representative a majority of the population and allegedly
‘opinions’ most times.
When a new leader is elected, there is an opportunity for
a type of different point of view, ‘country housecleaning’ or
a kind of International Tribunal for a country.
That involves what kind of
respect you share and receive when
interacting with representatives of all countries of
Have a nice day please.
