Groundhogs Day

For the last year or so, I have considered the election of 04 to be, in a sense, like groundhogs day. I say this in the sense that on November 2, 2004, the voters (being the groundhog) would come out and tell us if there was going to be four more years of winter or not. I have an unshakeable trust in Reality and didnt really sweat the election results as I knew that there was an ebb and flow to life in which there would necessarily be periods of ‘darkness’. And judging from the election results, we, as a nation, have apparently not had enough winter yet. I have no doubt that our president is the best president for where we are at right now simply because he IS our president right now. I am not one to argue with Reality or complain about Reality because that has been shown time and time again to be a fruitless endeavor. What I can do is reflect on Reality as it actually is and see what it is teaching me.

What Reality is showing me today is that we are a much more conservative nation that I had thought. I see that we are experiencing a lot more fear than I had thought. Recognizing that we are a more fearful and insecure nation than I had thought was a sobering realization but how can I find fault with my fellow countrymen for simply experiencing fear or blame them for trying to secure themselves in the only way that they know how. So, I may be disappointed that things did not work out the way that I would have preferred but I dont lose sight of the fact that everything always goes in cycles and we have obviously not learned the lessons of this particular cycle yet.

So, maybe, what we need as a nation and as a global community is to take this conservative agenda to its logical conculsion to find out for our selves if thats really what were about or not. Anyone who has paid any attention to the conservative movement over the last decade or so has surely recognized that they are motivated, mobilized and most importantly, actively involved with implementing this agenda into the very fabric of our society. I cant help but to feel that its a good thing to finally let them have at it and show america once and for all what kind of america they really want. My feeling is that after four years of having the conservative agenda rubbed in our faces and shown for what it really is, we will experience a sling shot effect not seen since the summer of love in 1966. So, I say bring the ultraconservatism on….let them lay it on nice and thick so that they can make our argument for us. 😉 Love always wins out over fear…..its only the waiting that sometimes seems so damn difficult.
