Obama is our only hope...

President Obama is our only hope of statesmanship, leadership and large vision for this nation at this critical time in our history. Obama has the courage of Lincoln. A self-governing, free society cannot function if a large segment of its population ceases to believe that government represents them, is working for them, is them.

The last several years in American society, tension has increased over cultural issues, such as abortion, the role of religion in public life, gun control and immigration.

Yes, courage is what’s required to reach out to those who are struggling to maintain personal dignity amid the minefield of emotions those attacks have created.

President Lincoln offered the bold action of freeing the slaves albeit in limited fashion initially, but did not seek approval of those who would destroy him. He made war against those who destroy our union and used the opportunity to lift this nation out of the sewage of slavery.
