Do Republicans Have What It Takes To Keep America From Progress?

Feb 10, 2008
Fastforward; today is November 5, the popular vote has been registered, the people have spoken. They have cast their ballot and voted for the 44th President of the United States of America.

However, that Office is not yet secured. There is a second election. It is the real election. It is the one that counts from the office of the electoral college.

Yes "we the people" really don't have a say in who get's elected to this high office. But we do get to elect the people who will speak in our behalf.

It is amazing how many in the US are in the dark about our indirect voting procedure. And so it is with constitutional law that we engage in this charade, that starts off with, ironically, "We the people...

So remember when you vote it is your state electorate that will speak for you so make sure you select the ones who will support your vote... else it does become a waste.

So let's examine America's possible future, will you?

There are many possibilities with some representing profound changes in the way we see ourselves and some with, shall I say, "business as usual" outcomes.

These profound possibilities are crossroads for America. For two centuries this country, consisting as a melting pot, an amalgamation of all the people in the world, has consistently selected leaders that represent only one group, one type of leader.

This year for the first time in the history of this country, there is an opportunity to change that. This opportunity is seen in two politicians who have rose to prominence amongst the people.

These two politicians are representatives of different groups in the population of America. There is a Women and a Black.

Both of these groups were legally restricted in the course of our nation from voting and from having property.

Yes, it took a great deal of effort and growth from this nation to break with the old and ring in the new way when it came to both women and blacks.

So here on November 4 and 11, we have made our decision at this crossroad and selected representatives of both groups.

Is this progress for America or is this a set back?

Now let's revisit this moment in history. Again, it is November 4 and 11 and we have made our decision as a people.

This time, we have decided to continue with business as usual. We have elected our leader from the same group that we have for the last two centuries. Is this progress or a set back?

In both cases, we sit at the crossroads of the destiny of a nation. This is the crossroad that all great nations must pass through. So what will this tell us about this nation? Will we have come to that stage that makes a nation truly great in spite of itself or will we fall back in fear of what might be and abandon the chance to grow as a nation.

Though these are real possible outcomes, it really boils down to this. It is the force of the people and not the vote that will determine if we are really ready for progress.

Are we truly ready for progress?
