I have been up this morning, trying to catch up on the State of the Union address. From what I have read, it went over very well. CNN conducted a poll that showed an impressive amount of people were in favor of what they heard. Of course, polls are given to only a percentage of people, but from all accounts, it was still a very good speech.
It appears that the speech covered immigration, socialism, and abortion, among other issues facing our nation. The President also stressed unifying and working together. Perhaps, that is what made the STOU so favorable. None of us can do everything alone. At some point in our life we all need help. This is true in the operation of the government. Exercising the almighty pen to circumvent Congress is the opposite of what the Founding Fathers intended.
Executive privilege aside, maybe now we can finally stop hindering each other and work to bring America back from the edge. It is high time that we move aside the petty crap that keeps us from working together. I understand that not everyone is happy with the president or his administration, then again, when is everyone happy? At the end of the day, there will be unhappy people. The hope is that we can work together to find a compromise that allows us to reach the best decision for our county.
That is going to do it for me. You guys take care and I will chat with you all soon.
