From the lodge at Oxmoor——-for many months now I have been writing my blogs along political lines. I have tried to call attention to some of the real dangers I could foresee with the election of the Romney/Ryan Republican ticket. From the assault on women, the danger of losing the rights so many fought for that could be reversed if the Supreme Court became more conservative, the annihilation of the Department of Education and, of course, the overturning of Obamacare, Social Security and Medicare, to name just a few.
I am filled with with great joy and relief that Barack Obama won the election and will be our leader for four more years. We may see adjustments in various programs and tax structures but President Obama will, I am sure, never do anything at the expense of the middle class and our most needy to better the wealthy. We will all be asked to do our part to move our country back to fiscal security. Our country has been limping along since the George Bush debacle that Obama inherited.
The men and women we have elected are good people. There are a few obstructionists still among the ones who are there to help not hinder. The majority can neutralize the few if they stiffen their backbone and stand their ground.
America is the greatest nation in the world. Its citizens are the most caring, intelligent and hard working. Let us all roll up our sleeves and be a willing part of the solution. More then ever I believe we live in the most wonderful country in the world. And more than ever I believe that if you can only complain or gripe if asked to give a little more, try living somewhere else.
