As I’ve been watching the RNC and listening to the speeches I can’t help but wonder,“Who is listening?”. I’m not an expert on anything and I’ve been wrong about many things, but in my opinion the upcoming presidential election could be the most important one in our history.I owe it to my people, my family, my country, and myself to speak up about this. I refuse to take the cowards way out and cut-and- run rather than facing the issue. I am not going to pander to the crowd who thinks I ought to be “politically correct”. I’m not trying to win friends and influence people. The cause is simply too great for us to remain silent.
Knowing how divided our country is, I have often wondered if Obama can be defeated. If the election outcome was based on logic and reason there would be nothing to worry about because on that basis there is no way Obama could win, but we all know that there are other factors in play. So, I admit, I have been viewing the upcoming election with doubt and fear. However, I have been encouraged by watching the RNC. It has revived my spirits and given me reason to hope—hope that the outcome will be better than I first suspected. I like what I’ve heard.
I truly believe that anyone who listened to these speeches could have been helped by them. But that’s the issue isn’t it—“who is listening?”, Are you? I have been enlightened and encouraged by what I’ve heard, but many who could and would have been helped have not heard. That’s sad. Many are like those who say,”My mind is made up, don’t confuse me with the facts”. Others simply have not seen the need of listening or they are so busy doing other things they don’t take time to listen.
So, again I say, “I can’t help but wonder, ‘Who is listening’?” If you haven’t been tuned in, I want to encourage you to find out what was said. It’s not that hard. Anyone with a computer, a smart phone, or iPad, etc. can easily find the transcripts or video’s on line. I urge you to do just that. Don’t just sit back wondering what’s going on and end up wondering “What happened?”. Find the facts, use commonsense, consider what is at stake, and vote. If we all do that everything will turn out just fine.
