What We Could Be ...


Throughout our history as a nation we have grown, wept, and matured together. Under the tyranny of a distant ruler our people willingly spoke out against that king so much as to dissolve all bonds between them. We defiantly came to war with the most formidable opponent of the time and won. From the bottom up we became a nation based on the principles of equality, justice, and liberty. We struggled to find our own in the early stages of our birth but came out strong in the end and grew into something that had not been seen in the history of the world, a government chosen by the people for the people and ruled by the people.

As time went on we faced many challenges but we never backed down, always looking to tomorrow to be a brighter day knowing we had control of our own destiny. Be it slavery, war, poverty, or injustice we as a nation did our best to right the wrong and provide a better future for those who will come after us. Our own Constitution speaks of this right from the beginning stating that "We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union". This job is not done and will never be done. Striving for perfection is something which must be on the mind of all Americans when dealing with the affairs of our country. No one will be perfect but we must always be willing to step up to the plate and do something in the words of President Kennedy "...not because they are easy but because they are hard."

The reason why I have recited this rhetoric of history is based on the fact that I have not given up hope in America yet. I look at where we are with a slumping economy, war costing billions and much more in human sacrifice, and a loss of hope within the people of this country for a better future and I manage to still see a better day ahead. The past few decades of our history have made us lose our path from what we meant to be as a nation 232 years ago when our forefathers wrote "with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor." We have that chance every time we pick up a ballot. We must be willing to take our government back to the people because it is our empathetic duty to care for our fellow man. If we empower ourselves to be active in the process of making our country what it should be for the next period of time then we continue to strive for that more perfect of unions. We must make our choices based solely on our own terms off of our own intuitions.

I personally refuse to give my country up and let stormy seas chose where she will float to. I will not let a select few invoke fear on those who are already fearful. I cannot sit by and let what is collectively and rightfully the people's democracy be torn into a bureaucratic heap of what used to be the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. And as one president of this nation said on the killing fields in southeastern Pennsylvania, "...the nation, shall have a new birth of freedom, the the government by the people and for the people, shall not perish from the earth."
