It's a dangerous political game we play when we pit ourselves as enemies against our actual friends. This is the result of believing the mistake Glenn Beck and others are making with an alarming increase in frequency, in that they claim that President Barack Obama is "Fundamentally Chang[ing] America". He is doing no such thing.
Many of you relatively older folks will remember (fondly?--I do) this video clip that I think was first aired as a commercial during the 1984 Superbowl. In my opinion, it is still one of the best commercials ever made.
This newer commercial remakes the classic, but with the fundamental substance changed in a fatally flawed way.
The problem? The remake portrays a message that is patently untrue. If we believe the essence of the remake then we are walking with too many Americans down the "Road More Traveled"--the wrong road--which will result in us never arriving at the real truth.
Barack Obama may have said that he wants to "fundamentally change America", but he is NOT fundamentally changing our country--any more than John McCain would have, or any more than several of President Obama's recent predecessors have succeeded in doing. He is simply carrying out the same Establishment plan that they have been carrying out, although perhaps at a slightly different velocity.
The sooner more honest Republicans AND Democrats will admit to this reality--that it is not a battle between Republicans and Democrats, but rather a battle between the Establishment and the rest of us--the better off America will be.
It's past time that we stop voting for the lesser of two dumbers at the ballot box.
