I've seen a lot of citizens, even prior to the election, fight about what is right and wrong with our economy, our policies, and our country. Virtually everyone who has commented on a political letter come firing back with insults and reasons as to why 'the other guy' is wrong. Perhaps that's the largest problem with our country right now. There appears to be no unity among the citizens of the United States.
But when the decision has been made, that is the time to join forces and work toward improving our situation, not making it worse by wasting time arguing. I do not for one second believe that the Obama-Care plan is what is best for this country but I am also not going to sit here and tell you I believe Romney had the perfect answer either. We need a compromise, we need our elected officials to find a resolve in which they can meet in the middle and create a near perfect solution. There will never be a "perfect" solution for any issue, but perfection IS what we should be striving for.
Right now, we are a country divided; our elected officials make up a government divided. Until we as citizens and our government as, not just politicians but citizens alike, begin to work toward a better future together and admit there is a need for compromise, I don't believe we are going to see improvements. I still believe that this election was a choice between "What we know and what we don't." It was a choice of 'hope and chance', Romney was a chance the majority just did not want to take, now people are hoping that Obama actually lives up to his campaign speeches and delivers some promise to our country. I voted for Mitt Romney, not because I am a Republican, that I'm not, but because I did not believe in Obama and felt it was time for a change.
I humbly admit that I'm as big a part of the divisive problem we have in America as anyone, but our only hope for the future is for that division to cease and for Americans to finally start standing up together and working toward a brighter future. There are issues that many people are never going to agree on. But there is plenty of room for all of us to work together and find a place where we can truly agree.
We as a people need to become more open minded to listening to each other and working together to formulate a solution. The time has come to set aside our differences and work together to make our country a better place to live now and in the future.
