Let’s pretend that we all live in a fairy tale world, where everything is wonderful..Were there is no racism, or sexism. Where the color of ones skin, did not matter. This would be a world, were everyone got along and loved one another. A world of hopes and dreams, that never stopped coming true.

What a wonderful place that would be. This is the world Obama would like everyone to have. At least that is what he says. But is it true? This sounds more like a Sunday Sermon, than a political thyme. The truth of the matter is, some people will say whatever it takes to accomplish their goal. Most of the time this goal, is a personal one. Meant to accomplish, there own personal agenda.

Through the ages, people have been fooled by promises never kept. This is a story as old as time itself. Since the time of the Pharaohs of Egypt, people have always wanted and hoped for a better life.

But what is hope really?

Definition:

want or expect something: to have a wish to get or do something or for something to happen or be true, especially something that seems possible or likely to happen.

So, we can conclude, that hope is wishing. But is wishing enough to gamble a nation on? That would be the question I would ask of every American. Wishing certainly did not make us what we are today.

Throughout this election season, we have been offered hope. But is it really possible? Can we get past everything that has happened? As a country, we all would hope we would. Or are some of us, just grabbing anything that might help us in some way. The truth of the matter is, we all want a “perfect world”, but that is very unlikely.

Empty promises will not make us a stronger country. They will not feed our children and end the war. A better world cannot be made by one person, it takes a entire nation. Many promises have been made by Obama, but step back and take a deep breath and ask yourself, “Would he help me and my country , or himself ?” The sad reality is that most people are only out for themselves, and I see no reason to believe otherwise from the Senator from Illinois.

Nothing in life is easy, and those things that are worth fighting for, are always the hardest. Our greatest triumphs, come about only by very hard work. No one is a savior or messiah to our country. So, beware of wolves in sheep’s clothing. For they can do the most damage to us, as a nation.

My greatest fear is that many will be deceived, and fall into this trap. Only to awaken in a few years, very very sorry. But by then, the damage will be done, and we will all pay the price.
