I know there was a time in my life when I could never recite the candidates for Senate in Delaware or for congress in Alaska. I never understood how important a political race in Florida was to me, living out in Nevada or Arizona. In fact, I never thought it was all that important. I believed that the “red scare” was over with McCarthy and that I’d never see a battle to save the Constitution from a small elitist and leftist minority. Like a majority of Americans, I’ve always believed in God but I never thought I would see a day, in America, where a mortal man would be revered and worshiped as the second coming.
I’ve always been busy raising kids and working to notice that my country was slipping away. Now we are on the cliff and about to lose it all. I know I’m no different than millions of other Americans. Most of us were not paying attention. We took for granted that the Constitution was always going to be there to protect us and that most politicians – I said MOST – believed that their service to America and to their constituents was almost a sacred calling.
But how things have changed.
I believe that, in the words of Mark Levin, this is the most important election of my life. I believed that the ’08 election was and we lost. In losing that election, we stepped to the edge of the cliff. I’m afraid that we will lose this time around and I’m not sure that we won’t finally go off that cliff. I’m disheartened that 20% of Americans consider themselves liberal: that nearly 2/3 believe America “is on the wrong track.” A majority don’t believe that their children will have an America as good as they’ve had, let alone a better America.
We are now racially and economically polarized. We can thank the president for that. From “cops acted stupidly” to the dismissal of the New Black Panther case, he has shown America on which side of the race issue he sits. Funny that he’s half white, and no one seems to want to acknowledge that, including Obama himself. He demonizes business and insurance companies. Bankers and Wall Street are the havens of “fat cats.” If you make $251,000, you are rich and you are vilified.
Too many races are “too close to call.” Too close to call means that there are legions of lawyers waiting for contested races and when those go to court, liberals win. One need only look to Al Franken . . . If a race is separated by a couple of percentage points, it will be contested by the left. There will be no justice because the courts are packed against the Constitution and against the majority of Americans. Voter fraud seems to be taking place all over this nation. If you can’t trust the ballot and the ballot takers, who can you trust? I was going to vote early, but now I’m afraid that my vote may not be counted, at all.
I’m discouraged and disheartened. I’m afraid that on November 3rd, our nation, as we’ve known it, will be dying.
I can’t blog and I think I finally know what writers block means.
Okay wait. . . this was a blog.

I’ve had a week from some unpleasant place and it’s not over yet but I’m finally in a position (with time) to blog again. If you pray, please say one for my mother. If you don’t, just keep a kind thought for her because she is a good person and very sick right now.
Is it any wonder why Rasmussen polls say the white/black relations have NOT improved? Polls show a drop from 62% in 2009 to 36% now in those who believe that relations between races have improved. These are interesting statistics from Rasmussen:
Twenty-seven percent (27%) now say black-white relations are getting worse, up 10 points from July 2009, while 33% think they’re staying about the same. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
African-Americans are much more pessimistic than whites. Thirty-nine percent (39%) of whites think black-white race relations are getting better, but just 13% of blacks agree.
Confidence in the nation’s course among African-Americans soared after Barack Obama’s election. But then several prominent Democrats, perhaps most notably former President Jimmy Carter, suggested that opposition to the president’s health care plan was motivated in part by racism. Only 12% of all voters agreed in September of last year, but among blacks, 27% felt that way and 48% were undecided.
These numbers should come as no surprise to anyone when you remember this presidents remarks about [white] “cops who acted stupidly” and other politicians who continue to claim that anyone who disagrees with this president is a racist (Jimmy Carter, for instance.) The NAACP is “monitoring” the TEA Party for any signs of racism. And the liberal media is hammering home the race issue at every turn. It’s no wonder people believe that race relations have deteriorated since this presidents election.
Remember theObama’s words? He was going to bring us all together: he was going to be the president of ALL Americans. He was the post racial president. He was, according to Evan Thomas, “above it all. Almost like God.” And yet, the perception is that we are worse off than before, in regard to race. It’s as though the last 50 or 60 years of civil rights laws and affirmative action have had no positive results.
Some one needs to send that memo to Condi Rice, Colin Powell, Clarence Thomas, Thomas Sowell and countless other successful and respected Americans of Black ancestry.
