What an environment of love and trust can do
Trust must be earned, and sometimes can’t be restored if broken. This is why truth and honesty are so important.
Sadly, we live in a society that has drifted dangerously far from the touchstone of truth. The entire country was lied to about Obamacare. Is the entire country outraged? Not so much.
About “Obamacare”…. remember, “You can keep you doctor”? Or, “It will prevent people from going into debt”, “ObamaCare will lower costs overall”. And how about this one: “More Americans will be insured.” There were more.
Where is the outrage? But hey, Walking Dead is on! We have drifted so far from the Ten Commandments, can we even name them all? They were written for our good after all.
For peace and unity, we need an environment of trust. We also need an envirnoment of love. Let’s look how “loving” our Administration has been:
“there will be hell to pay”
for Obama’s critics in the second term (Obama’s “beard”, Valerie Jarrett.)
-called American businesses soft and lazy and said they’d lost their ambition; they didn’t build that; they need to “up” their game;
-baselessly accused the Chamber of Commerce of accepting foreign contributions and said it had the burden of proving it did not;
-said Mitt Romney, in effect, killed a lady who lost her insurance;
-says the “wealthy” aren’t paying their fair share;
-stepped on the conscience protections of people of faith and attacked a Lutheran school’s right to hire and fire on religious grounds;
-uses “gay rights” as a wedge issue and depict opponents of same-sex marriage as bigots;
-manufactured a phony GOP “War on Women”;
-said Republicans want dirty air and dirty water and rejoice when people lose their insurance coverage, that they want a smaller America and don’t believe in rebuilding roads and bridges, that they are hostage takers and Slurpee sippers. He says they created this mess, and they should sit in the backseat of the car. We’ll have hand-to-hand combat with them on Capitol Hill, and if they bring a knife, we’ll bring a gun;
-crammed Obamacare down the throats of a strongly opposed majority;
-continues to scare seniors, the “middle class” and the “poor” into believing Republicans want to destroy Medicare;
-publicly ridiculed and demonized the Supreme Court on multiple occasions;
-disparaged hedge fund managers as “playing with other people’s money”;
-vilified immigration enforcement advocates as racists;
-waged a war against states on immigration and voter ID laws;
-worked against military ballots;
-lawlessly rewrote loans in the GM and Chrysler restructurings to favor unions and cheat secured creditors; and in Solyndra, to subordinate taxpayers to private investors; and
-exploited race and minority relations for political purposes and for ideological reasons, including Eric Holder calling the nation cowards on race, racializing voter intimidation laws and saying the GOP was after him on Fast and Furious because he, like Obama, is an African-American;
-appealing to Hispanics and blacks to vote as a bloc for Democrats because Democrats are their friends and Republicans their enemies;
-and accused the GOP of supporting voter ID laws to suppress the minority vote and immigration laws for racial reasons.(1)
With all of the deceit which breeds distrust, and all of the division which breeds hate, HOW can we have unity, “Mr. Community Organizer”? Geez, even animals who are “natural enemies” can co-exist in an environment of trust and love.
