Yesterday, on Inauguration Day, I received an e-mail from one of the 22%, one of Bush's die hard supporters. It began with the line "On this most depressing day...." It was the same old tired bull about Obama coming to take our guns away. As if, with all the problems facing this country, guns are the critical issue. I get so sick of hearing this crap. Fearmongering. That's all it is. Bold faced lies and propaganda. Obama has addressed the gun issue, and has made it clear that he doesn't plan to come and take our hunting rifles. Now, people are entitled to their opinions, and can believe what they choose. However, when I send an e-mail that says, 'Let's just agree to disagree on politics,' it seems to me that the gracious and polite thing to do is respect my opinions and quit sending me your Obama-bashing e-mails. Let's admit it, people. Bush made some critical mistakes during his presidency. These mistakes were so grave that his own party began to distance themselves from the presidency during the primaries. I make no bones about it. I am a supporter of Barack Obama. I was from the very first time that I heard him speak. I am an idealist, and the things that he says make perfect sense to me. I'm not going to re-hash my views on President Bush. I am not going to defend President Obama. I don't have to. The man won the election. Overwhelmingly. I will say this: Our country is undeniably in trouble. I think that we ought quit worrying about who we wanted to win the election. Regardless of who you voted for, I think that we better start praying to God that Obama is the most successful president history has ever seen.
So, I ask all Americans:
What do you love more? Your politics or your country?
