One of the greatest problems with America today is the division amongst the citizens. I see a great rift, perpetuated by those with a vested interest in keeping the wedge of partisanship firmly in place. Once a people are split, it is virtually impossible to heal that rift.
Such rifts expose the hatred, kept securely under control normally, and shows it to the world with great speed. This is, of course, exactly what those in true power want. They want us to fight and disagree. They want us to be at one another’s throats.
It is this controlled chaos they create which allows them to move along their hidden agenda. One only has to ask who would benefit the most from such chaos in America to find the answer to this question of Who.
Those on the Right will, of course, answer that it is Barack Obama and his “socialist, fascist, communists” who are the problem. The Left will demonize the mouth pieces of the Right: Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, and others.
In truth, all these are at fault in some measure for the chaos which has been allowed to spread. As I am. As you are. We are all responsible for the chaos which grips this country, if for no other reason than we will not stand up and counter such depravity with calm resolution.
When hatred is spread, we should be spreading love. When idiocy and ignorance is put forth in the public dialog, we should respond with facts, logic, and rational discourse.
Yet, we don’t. We allow ourselves to be drawn by our short hairs into a firestorm of controversy which pervades our culture. We have, in short order, been manipulated by forces unknown into hating our brothers and sisters. Our mothers and fathers. Our sons and daughters. We demonize those who disagree with us, based solely on their political opinions! What madness this is!
I ask you, point blank, can you rise above the hatred? Can you see past your petty concerns and see that we should all be united, as a people, as AMERICANS, and find a path that all can agree with? Are you capable of it? Or do you prefer to continue the hatred and the fighting?
How soon until we mature as a country, as a people, and truly grasp the greatness which lies before us?
