So we were promised hope and change, but what's the difference?
Daniel Henninger in the Wall Street Journal says, "Hope is the helium -filled ballon of politics. Governing in office is the gravity that pulls it back down to earth."
Many politicians are giving the false impression that "giving people the rhetoric of hope, lifting them with words, is more important than delivering results, which some might call change."
Despair is when we are told that there is hope and promise, but we don't get meaningful, impactful, and lasting positive change.
The hard work of leadership is not just providing a beautiful Garden of Eden vision for people to salivate over and to get their votes, but rather it is making something REAL happen that makes people's lives and the world better.
As they say is plain english, "Words are cheap!"
We don't need any more fancy oratory skills--Hitler had those too and it led to the murderous genocidal Holocaust and disaster of World War II.
Time for some elbow grease and some results that aren't fake like the news we've been getting.
We've heard too many lies, too much spin, and been subjected to language control of the "media echo chamber."
Just one prominent example has been regarding terrorism and radical Islam which is not and never has been "workplace violence" and traffic accidents.
Who is the President of the U.S. fooling when he says that theres been "no foreign-planned terror attacks in 8 years."
Gee, ISIS and their numerous terror supporters seem to violently disagree about the many terrorist attacks we indeed did have on U.S. soil in the last 8-years, including Orlando, Garland, Fort Hood, San Bernardino, Minnesota, Ohio University, and many more.
It's time that we stop being fed a bunch of false hope and political malarkey and instead we get some genuine change, improvement, and progress in our lives and the nation. ;-)
