Obama's Acceptance Speech


Anonymous said...

Chris Matthews on MSNBC stated that he was glad hurricane sandy came and helped obama win the election! Is this what our country has come to? So much hate from people like him on TV that people suffering and dying is a good thing for their cause? Win at any cost even use people dying? What a sick man and sick (news) channel!


by Thelen Paulk

I had a dream the other night, I didn't understand.
A figure walking through the mist, with flintlock in his hand.
His clothes were torn and dirty, as he stood there by the bed,
He took off his three-cornered hat, and speaking low, he said:

"We fought a revolution, to secure our liberty.
We wrote the Constitution, as a shield from tyranny,
For future generations, this legacy we gave,
In this, the land of the free and the home of the brave."

"The freedom we secured for you, we hoped you'd always keep.
But tyrants labored endlessly, while your parents were asleep.
Your freedom gone, your courage lost, you're no more
than a slave,
In this, the land of the free and the home of the brave."

"You buy permits to travel, and permits to own a gun,
Permits to start a business, or to build a place for one.
On land that you believe you own, you pay a yearly rent,
Although you have no voice in choosing how the money's spent."

"Your children must attend a school that doesn't educate.
Your Christian values can't be taught, according to the state.
You read about the current news, in a regulated press.
You pay a tax you do not owe, to please the I.R.S."

"Your money is no longer made of silver or of gold.
You trade your wealth for paper, so your life can be controlled.
You pay for crimes that make our nation turn from God in shame,
You've taken Satan's number, as you've traded in your name."

"You've given government control to those who do you harm,
So they can padlock churches, and steal the family farm,
And keep the country deep in debt, put men of God in jail,
Harass your fellow countrymen, while corrupted courts prevail."

"Your public servants don't uphold the solemn oath they've sworn.
Your daughters visit doctors so their children won't be born.
Your leaders ship artillery and guns to foreign shores,
And send your sons to slaughter, fighting other people's wars."

"Can you regain freedom for which we fought and died?
Or don't you have the courage or the faith to stand with pride?
Are there no more values for which you'll fight to save?
Or do you wish your children to live in fear and be a slave?"

"Sons of the Republic, arise and take a stand!
Defend the Constitution, the Supreme Law of the Land!
Preserve our great republic and each God-given right,
And pray to God to keep the torch of freedom burning bright!"

As I awoke he vanished, in the mist from which he came.
His words were true, we are not free. We have ourselves to blame.
For even now as tyrants trample each God-given right,
We only watch and tremble, too afraid to stand and fight.

If he stood by your bedside, in a dream while you're asleep,
And wondered what remains of our rights he fought to keep,
What would be your answer, if he called out from the grave?
Is this still the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave?

If people wanted change, they would have voted with one of the other parties. The fact is, most people don't want change. They enjoy the status quo. They take the path of least resistance, as they were taught to or observed in others, never looking outside of that way of thinking, using the excuses "it can't be done" or "I'd be the only one if I did" or "we would all suffer". At least, until someone shows that it can be done.

This is the only country I know of where if you challenge your own thoughts and the cynical thoughts of others you can overcome your fears and help shape a better world. It takes practice. Like anything. But we can always be better. And it can always be done.

Lighten up folks. Do you really think it makes sense to change horses in mid-stream? The economy is recovering and the other guy and his party's only "plan" is to undo everything that's been done in the last 4 years because they didn't do it? If you feel so strongly, maybe you should lobby your congressional representatives to undig their heels and come to the table with ideas and a willingness to work toward solutions instead of their own agendas. I remember hearing the same gloom and doom when significant civil rights legislation was passed. Guess what? Thank God we keep maturing as a nation. And Thank God that our country lets you, me and so many others participate in this process regardless of our many differences. We can all love our great country and contribute to its success in many different ways.

Good god Republicans, you lost. Big deal. Face a few truths,

No one likes your ideas anymore.

The people that drove us into this ditch don't get to have the car keys back.

Romney surrounded himself with Bush people and hid his policy ideas and personal financial history. People didn't like that, he lost. They felt he was two-faced.

The Republicans outnumbered the Dems on anonymous SuperPAC donations 5 to 1. They thought they could buy this election, that with enough TV ads they could convince people to vote for their lies.

Well they did convince some people. It's time you realize they've been playing you for useful fools.


Every criticism we levied at your candidate was started first, by your party, in the Republican primaries. YOU didn't even like him until you had to settle for him.

He was a poor candidate with a running mate that wanted to end medicare and s.s... Get over it.

"my bad, lets try your plan"
and move on with life. Like adults do.

It was a constitutional election and your candidate didn't win ONE SINGLE battleground state. It's not a conspiracy, the nation hasn't changed, it's just you have been living a series of corporate media induced delusions that you now need to snap out of.

This nation has had 56 Presidential candidates and it will have many many more. Want to win another one?

Try something other than regurgitating the rantings of Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh... stop panding to the loudest nutjobs they can find to give them ratings.

Try to seem a bit more sane and a few moderates might vote for you.

Stop talking about the various shades of rape and stop trying to abolish Roe V Wade.

Stop clinging to trickle down economics that rich people are so eager to convince to you works. There is no economic data to suggest anything trickles down.
-High income earners pay less taxes than ever in history.
-There is more of a discrepancy between the regular Joe and those high income earners than there has been since the Great Depression.
-Corporate profits are currently at all time highs.
-The stock market has remained roughly double what it was the day Obama took office.

The rich have continued to get richer, the middle class is dying. And people like those that ran Bain Capital caused this mess, those that crashed the economic markets and faced not one day of court to answer for their crimes. The Monopoly Millionaire stole your nation, not the mythical evil poor people that plot to steal all your tax money.

Stop crying that Christians are being oppressed despite being the majority faith in the nation with more political influence than any other non-Government entity.

Stop trying to live in a constant state of manufactured crisis and fear. Not everything in the world is out to get you.

You lost an election. Again, good God, get over yourselves.

It's not the end of anything but your delusions about how the world worked, and what the majority of this nation felt about your far right neocon agenda.

Now if you could, write a letter to your house reps and ask them to stop playing politics with the government, end the obstructionism and see if maybe we can now get on the way with fixing the country's problems.

Let's give Obama a chance to fix some stuff. If it doesn't work, we have another election in 2 years. And another 2 after that. And so on.

You know... since this ISN'T the end of America and the world as we know it.

Harry Reed and his merry band are the ones slaming the door shut on every deal that comes along. Obama will not pass any bill that does not include huge tax increases! And not just the rich Joe Biden said taxes will be raised on everyone thats the way it has to be! Obama has had 4 years and made a bad thing much worse!

Time will tell.

Lets check the defacit in 4 years.
Lets see how unemployment goes.
Lets see how much of our paycheck gets taken.
And lets see if Obamacare hurts or helps.

I know I'll be watching.

U just think what he (Obama) didn't try to do for our men that died in Libya, tells us what kind of a man he is is. Mt heart aches for what our grandchlldren and great grandchildren are facing in years to come. I pray that perhaps our pres, has learned from his mistakes of the last 4 years. Not sure he is smart enough tho,.

Dude spends 9 trillion dollars in 4 years and you are still blaming Bush!!! Brainwashed democrats. Spend spend spend, tax tax tax. Then blame it on somebody else. We are now on the downslide to economical collapse where your muslim brother will declare martial law. If you think nazi Germany was bad, you havent seen anything yet. Go ahead and call me crazy. Im the guy you WONT see at the FEMA camps that will be there "to help you".

so basically you people in our poverty stricken area want the rich to continue to get tax cuts because they need to become richer? and you also want there to be no wic program to help low income families feed there babies? or and birth control that should not be allowed either. sounds like a good canidate right there. people having babies since birth control is not legal then no wic to help feed those babies sounds like a plan for alot of starving kids in this area. lets face it half of potter county do not make over 250000 a year so any tax increase that obama is proposing would not effect us in potter county.

Anonymous said...

How many businesses do you know of that dont have annual revenue of 250000? These are the people providing jobs to our locals. This will hurt them severely. Its not just about a guy that makes that much

Anonymous said...

Any military familys,solders or veterans that voted for obama should be ashamed! He watched on video as those people in Lybia got killed lied about it then went to fund raisers! Not to mention the people in New York that can't even get help! The FEMA offices were closed due to bad weather! NO leadership at all!

I would be interested to see a demographic breakdown of Potter County voters based on gender, age, level of education, income, ethnic background, religious affiliation, home and land ownership status, other places lived in the world, number of trips to museums, number of books read per year (by genre and literacy level), news media preferences, and critical perspective on political economy, and basic knowledge of the liberal arts, science and math in relation to presidential vote.
