America's Political Dilemma

The best way to overcome political dissonance is by taking decisive action directed toward domestic goals and cooperation among nations.

Courtesy: The Buffalo News

(PASO ROBLES, Calif.) - Republicans condemn Democrats for spending too much money on Healthcare Reform, yet encourage President Obama to send more troops to Afghanistan as an increasing expense to the nation.

A chorus based on the same tune was used to achieve similar results [domestically and abroad] where 130,000 troops supposedly will be removed from Iraq by the end of 2011, and where the act of military reduction ought to be well under way, but isn’t.

Adding troops in Afghanistan, as Republican’s desire, would be to repeat the Iraq error and defeat America’s better nature in the interest of meaningful domestic concerns, beginning with universal healthcare. The argument of the Right is meant to defeat the righteousness of the Left for reasons suitable to the goal of the Republican Party.

Mental incongruence is not a disease, but is due to the intention of the “Party of God” dedicated to the defeat of logic and human decency to fulfill its purpose; to see Barack Obama fail! But then what?

The best way to overcome political dissonance is by taking decisive action directed toward domestic goals and cooperation among nations.

I like your style, Ken. We are on the horns of a dilemma: Any good person in possession of even a modicum of conscience would not wish to see President Obama fail on critical local issues such as health care, the economy, etc...BUT, as he is semi-jokingly referred to by some as our "first Jewish President", he seems to be of a mind to continue to aid and abet the sinister plans of Israel to expand their influence, not only in the middle east, but globally as well. I find it difficult to believe that such an educated man would knowingly surround himself with the people that he has, and not have a grasp of their larger agenda. He just could not be that naive. If there is a God, may he give us guidance, to deliver us from this most un-Godly quagmire into which Bush/Cheney have seemingly inextricably immersed us.
