Sent to me by a friend, probably in reponse to signed petitions seeking permission for their states to peacefully secede from the United States. I find this amusing, not neceessarily my point of view!
Dear Red States:
We're ticked off at your Neanderthal attitudes and politics and we've decided we're leaving. That's right, leaving. We in New York and California intend to form our own country and take the other Blue States with us. In case you aren't aware, that includes Hawaii, Oregon, Washington, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois and the rest of the Northeast. We believe this split will be beneficial to the nation and especially to the people of our new country, The Enlightened States of America (E.S.A).
November 9, 2012, 4:30 pmHappy Veterans Day
Here is my Veteran's Day Message:
I have purposely been quiet leading up to the election and waited until the aftermath to finally speak on this matter. As Veteran's Day approaches and with ffamily who put their life on the line in defense of the nation, my heart is really sadden by the hateful vile from both sides and extreme racist rant that I have seen from postings on LP, Facebook and Twitter (If you like for me to share some examples, I will gladly repost the trash I have seen) simply because the election did not go the way they wanted. I also saw a picture of soldiers attacking the White House with the intention of overthrowing the government if the election did not go a certain way. This is borderline treason.
Military personnel took an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States and the process worked Tuesday night, as set up by the document from our founding fathers. No where in that document does it say that we need to take up arms if the electoral process does not work out the way you wanted, nor draw up documentations to leave the union. This is the process that is outline in the Constitution, I suggest that we respect it.
To those that are on the Republican side, here is the question that needs to be asked - what is it about your brand that caused 94% of African American voters, 69% of Hispanic voters, 73% of Asian voters and 50% of the military voters in Norfolk, VA to go against you? Second question - if your party is what is best for the ENTIRE NATION, why did you lose the mid terms in 06, the White House in 08 and 12? You will need to do some deep soul searching to answer that question and stop throwing nasty vile out because you lost the election. Apparently, there is something wrong in your message.
To those that are on the Democratic side, here is the question that also needs to be asked- although the electoral college gave President Obama an overwhelming victory, do not misinterpret what happen Tuesday night. Half of the country did not vote for the President and the vast majority of these people are not racist, are good people and have legitimate concerns with our current financial situation. They also should have a say on what happens to this nation going forward. I would also say that there is something wrong with your message, because again, half the country did not vote your way.
I have always been able to think independent of party influence and vote the candidate of my choice. Bbecause in my limited time here that God has granted me, I have usually found that when you have two polar opposites with opposing viewpoints, somewhere in the MIDDLE is the truth. As a supporter of this President (Yes, I am supporting him and voted for him), not only do we all need the President to be successful for the benefit of the country. I also support him as our Commander in Chief (CNC). Happy Veterans Day to all who have served this great nation so we can have have this process and GOD BLESS THE ENTIRE PLANET that he has given us.
