A New Hope or…

Barack Obama, Election, Obama, Politics, President Obama

Well…here we are with a new President Elect waiting on deck.  Obviously I am extremely happy with the outcome on many different levels.  But I’m not writing to gloat, I’m writing about the opportunities I feel we have for the country.  I believe, as is so often espoused in an election year by politicians, that we live in the greatest country on earth.  The opportunities every individual has access to here is not found anywhere else.  This is in large part due to our freedoms and individual desires and motivations.  The other part is in how our governments support the dreams of so many people.  This is the opportunity for our government to make the needed steps for renewed opportunities in the future.  I think that the building blocks for renewed innovation and growth will be set under this administration.  Is it possible for those who represent the people to work towards setting things in place for this renewal?  I can’t answer that. 

I do think it is very likely that our government will move past disagreeing for the sake of not conceding to the other side.  I know, it sounds like something a person on the “winning side” would say, but I truly believe it.  We are in, and going further into, desperate times.  This should be the time that we look towards the long term future, instead of only acting on crises as they overtake us.

I know I’m not getting into specific details on solutions to current and future problems.  I want to know if others believe these desperate times will bring great opportunity.  Will they?  Has optimism for our future left the people of this country?  Is it foolish to be hopeful of the potential that lies ahead?  Are the thousands of people who celebrated Tuesday night crazy or was that a time for them to truely be excited and inspired?

Right now, I’m hopeful…

Adam, I cannot help but be nervous about the next four years.  I guess I am one of the few people concerned that we now have a Democratic President, Congress and possible Supreme Court nominations looming.  Though there is a lot to be said for getting things done, my concern is that this government is going to undo many of the fundamentals that former bi-partisan governments worked so hard, together, to get passed.  I fear that checks and balances, a pillar squarely constructed on the shoulders of the Constitution, may be compromised.  This is not something that I can take lightly. 

As an American citizen, I feel it my duty to whole-heartedly support our new President.  It is crucial for us to unite as a nation and work as one to keep America’s flame burning bright.  These coming years are going to test not only our national unity and Barack Obama’s merit, but most of all they are going to test the fortitude of our Constitution.  I hope and pray that our elected officials remember the ideals that this country was founded on and use the Constitution as a beacon to guide America through these dark times.
