“Renewing Hope, Rebalancing America!”

It will take sacrifice and hard work to regenerate and revitalize this dying nation!

America is a place of hope, a place where dreams come true. It is a place where the weak, the downtrodden, and oppressed can succeed. Even the humblest can be free. Everyone here can aspire to rise to heights others can not even dream of.

That is one of the foundations of our greatness. That is America’s promise. That is America’s allure.

But America’s promise has faded and with it the hopes of millions of people.

How did America lose its way, get so out of balance? What needs to be done to recapture the spirit from which our constitution was founded?

For the second time in our 234 year history we are confronted with incredible obstacles— challenges that portend more destruction before we can begin to heal.

America needs to rebalance and the process needs to begin now!

“Recapturing Hope to Save a Dying Nation!”

A Bipartisan effort is necessary to fix what’s wrong with America.

An earlier article, “The Evaporation of Hope!” discussed diminishing hope, disintegrating dreams, the need for change, and how we must rebalance this lost and dying nation. If we don’t, the consequences could be devastating.

This article will more clearly identify our biggest problems and begin to discuss the solutions necessary for the survival of this country.

Though campaign financing is at the heart of our path to destruction there is a lot we can do immediately to persuade our elected representatives to make the right choices. We can no longer sit idly by and allow them to continue to make their sordid mistakes. Too much is at stake to ignore the obvious problems. Collectively we must get active and apply pressure to make them do the right thing for ‘the people,’ instead of for the Special Interests.

Some think the Tea Party is that movement and that they’re doing the work necessary to correct the ills of this country. But the Tea Party is not the answer and if we’re duped into thinking they have the answers then we are in worse shape than anyone could imagine.

If the Tea Party is not the answer then what is, and how do we initiate it?

“The Evaporation of Hope!”

Just two short years ago we were promised hope and change!

After 8 years of a disastrous administration we, Independents like myself, Democrats, and some disgruntled Republicans voted Barack Obama into the office of President over the tired, old, destructive platform of John McCain.

The need for change was obvious and the promise of hope exhilarating. We had a dynamic, charismatic candidate that offered promise for the future; an opportunity to right the wrongs of the previous administration and 12 years of a destructive Congress.

It was clear that Obama understood the needs of the people and would work hard to restore the balances that make this country great! There had been a long, slow, painful 30 year erosion of that balance and America was in an agonizing death spiral. Obama promised to reverse that!

But, as an Independent, a year-and-a-half into his Presidency, I’m wondering…

Where is the change that millions of Americans were hoping for?
