Barack Obama is the nominee of the Democratic Party for President of the United States. The way he became "that one" is by now a familiar story to most of us, debated and argued all over the Internet and the media. It is a tale of collusion, conniving and ultimate disenfranchisement of voters. We all agree we have some hard work to do to ensure this doesn't happen again.
Some of us want to punish or "teach a lesson" to those responsible by defeating Senator Obama in the general election. I have two problems with that approach. One is you end up punishing the general population as well by handing the keys to the hen house back to the fox who decimated it for eight very long, very unpleasant years. Our fellow citizens need help, not revenge. My other problem is rewarding the Republican Party who have yet to be punished or taught a lesson for stealing the last two general elections through disefranchisement and other more devious, illegal methods. I mean, what is the entire point of a Presidential election anyhow? Someone?
I think we need to work within the system; the exact same way those who engineered the appointment of Barack Obama as the candidate. They put people in place and worked behind the scenes to get it done. They modeled how to do it and they did an excellent job, from their perspective. Some of us sat back complacently, let it happen and didn't even notice until it was beyond our control. Some, like the Denver Group, tried valiantly to sound the alarm, but, sadly, it turned out to be too little, too late. They couldn't do it alone.
There are millions of us, unsatisfied, pissed off,if you will. I believe negative energy only creates more negativity. If we all come together with a common postive purpose to work, and I mean work, for change within our Party, we can achieve the positive outcome we desire.
Otherwise, we are forming that famous Democratic circular firing squad and once more throwing the baby out with the bath water.
