It's About You, Not Him

1/22/2009   Comment on This

After listening to Obama at the Inauguration, I appreciate the fact that he filled us with hope, but hope doesn't pay the bills. People are depending on the government to help, and that is insane. Obama talks about helping our fellow man. Is your neighbor going to pay your mortgage for you?

Come on America--wake up! Mediocrity has set in on this country in the worst way. Where is the ambition and work ethic we once had?

I am 53 years old, and I am not DEPENDING on social security. Do I hope it's there in 10 years or so? Of course. I don't depend on anyone but myself.

I have news for you: the Obama Nation is one big bag of wind. He talks about change. What is he going to change? Help your fellow man. How?

I'm not being selfish, just being honest. You have to depend on YOU, plain and simple. He is giving us this warm smooth feeling of hope, but there is nothing behind it. The government should be "in addition to" not "in place of". This Robin Hood mentality of socialism is not what the country was founded on.

Be careful what you wish for America. The guy is probably the most charismatic man we have ever seen. Have you read the papers lately about the guy who swindled people out of 50 BILLION dollars? Obama upped him one. He swindled America.

Depend on yourself, not him. As a matter of fact, always depend on yourself. No one is going to do it unless you do it yourself. That hasn't changed no matter what Obama says.

Am I wrong? Tell me.
