A Rose by Any Other Name . . .

We were promised hope and change, and we were given excuses. Now we have four years of forward . . . indicating the same direction. So does that mean four more years of excuses? I'm not so hopeful even of that, except the supporters making excuses for the people who received their votes. President Obama has been a difficult blog topic, because basically to disagree with him, is racism or intolerance, or something negative. I don't disagree with him any more than I disagreed with G.W., but now in retrospect, the G.W. years were a kinder, gentler America. Although the USA Patriot Act declared war on we the people, the majority of us were aware of that fact. Now, with gun control and mental health data sharing, the majority is either clueless, or obtuse. You could disagree with G.W., you could even make fun of him, and it was acceptable, but Barack Obama is off limits for bloggers and comedians, much less pundits, who are having to attack peripheral politics, to avoid receiving more detrimental labeling than they already are. What isn't same ole same ole is the name calling and bullying of business owners and individuals who don't happen to agree with the present agenda. There is no free speech if you disagree! Free speech doesn't have to be removed from the Bill of Rights, the argument against free speech, just has to be presented to be progress and taking the rights away of someone with whom you disagree, to be your patriotic intellectually superior duty. Congress doesn't have to make any laws regarding religion, because Congress is forbidden, besides Congress can't make any laws regarding their actual purpose for making laws, which is a lack of their own efficiency. A jury of public opinion is all it takes for fundamental secularists to name call and bully, and now they do!
I have realized this President has given the secular fundamentalists the same political power the other side gives the religious fundamentalists. All in all, it's still fundamental extremism. Opposite ends of the same spectrum. I don't agree with either, but I do think the religious funadamentalists have a more difficult time garnering a majority. I'd say the last two elections have proven that . . . Righteousness will not be found on either side of the aisle, because fundamental extremism from either direction; is not righteous, nor is it prudent.
Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil. a Proverb of Holy Scripture
