The State of the Union 2012; A Constitutional Perspective
_ The President of the United States said many great things that the
people want to hear. Yes, the people want to hear what is and what could
be and what may be but, now let's see all of this happen. We, as
Americans, have gone on long enough without seeing action. We deserve to
see our government work for us and with us instead of making us work
for them. There are still hundreds of thousands to millions of Americans
out of work. Jobs and the economy still does not seem to be the focus
of this President. The government should not be in the business of
Education. They should only be in the business of protecting our country
and securing our borders.
The President mentioned that the easy way to save more money is to
not waste it. Well, I would say that the best way to save more money is
to spend less money. Our money is being used for many things and then
when the government has maxed out the "Country's Credit Card" we are the
ones that end up flipping the bill to repay everything back.
The President continued on to say that we need to put half of the
money saved from being not being at war towards paying off the debt. If
our hard earned money would stop being used it would be so much easier
to pay down and eventually pay it off completely. Americans are not just
content with paying down the debt. They want it paid off. It is the
best chance we all have to truly lower taxes once and for all.
We are being taxed more than we should, law upon law is being imposed
and minute by minute, our rights are being infringed upon and taken
away. Tax cuts are one topic of discussion that the President hit in his
speech. Sure, tax cuts may differ but, we are talking about equality
for all Americans. This is what America wants and deserves.
Parties play a big part in making decisions for our country. That is
the first problem right there. This is where the people need to be able
to have the opportunity to be back in power. We have the power, we have
the rights, we have the authority! The government only represents us and
our ideas. But, the question is "Do They?" I do not believe that they
truly do on any level, local, state or federal.
The President goes on throughout his speech to talk about the State
of our Union being strong. It is most definitely not strong enough with
people out of work, constant imposition of laws restricting us as
Americans, etc. This is not a strong State of the Union. But, believe me
when I say that it can be strong. It will one day be strong. But, today
it is not strong enough. It is not where it should and could be. This
is where we, as Americans, must rise up and take upon ourselves the
mantle that we have always had and push our country toward a better
tomorrow. We can do it. Oh, yes we can!
The State of our Union is only as strong as we are as a country. We
must unite, not as members of different parties but, as citizens of this
great country, The United States of America! That is when the State of
the Union will become stronger than ever and we will live in a land that
flourishes. Now is the time for us to act and make things happen!
