The election has come and gone. The people voiced their outrage and irritation with the establishment (read republicans) and now we wait to see what happens when the dust settles.
Throughout the blogosphere there are cries of frustration, cries of anger and cries of joy. But what gets my goat are the bloggers who produce these self-righteous posts of “I am going to spend the next two years chronicling the missteps and mistakes of the democrats” or “it will be fun to watch the democrats screw up. We’ll be back in a term or two.”
And of course there are the liberal blogs tooting their horns with “now we are going to fix all of the mistakes the republicans made.”
I dislike those as much as the former. Right now it feels to me like two teams of monkeys have been fighting over who gets to control the banana tree. Two groups have spent years engaged in finger pointing and what have we gotten out of it.
I am just sick of it. You all need an extra large dose of STFU. Stop talking and show me how you are going to make things better. Show me a plan, a coherent platform that illustrates how we can improve all of our lives.
This is not a country that is built upon one group. It is a potpourri of people and ideas. Let’s see if we can actually execute some of these plans. Let’s see if we can make it better.
I can only speak for myself, but until I see change I really don’t want to hear a word from anyone.
The sky is not falling. The country is not broken. We are not on the verge of civil war and we certainly are not going to be overrun by the hordes of Osama. We live in a country in which our impoverished are for the most part not as poor as some of those who live in the third world.
But we can and need to do better. I just hope that we are going to get to work on improving life for all of us.
