After listening to Obama's interview with O'Reilly I can see more clearly what's going on. Though this is not new knowledge for many of you. Both Obama and O'Reilly fear the same thing. They just have differing ideas about how best to avoid the thing they fear. This is the position we are in as a nation: The United States is like the man who has been riding on the back of a lion for centuries, digging his spurs into the lion's sides, slapping the lion upside the head, pulling its mane. Now the man wants to get down off the lion. He fears that what he has been doing is wrong. He fears the pains he has been experiencing might be the result of his wrong doing. So is he just going to climb down off the lion and walk home? Will the lion just stand there and let him walk away. Maybe watch after him to see him safely to his front door? If it were just Africans the U.S. had been messing with that could be a possibility but those middle easterners aren't known for their capacity to forgive and forget. The United States has committed atrocious sins all over the world. Everywhere we go we steal, kill and destroy. We have incurred a tremendous debt, even greater than the seven trillion dollar national deficit. That's what national security is all about. We don't want to pay that debt. People like O'Reilly think we can indefinitely defer repayment by classifying our creditors as terrorists and beating them to a pulp. Obama hopes maybe we can negotiate for lower interest rates. That's the best he or anyone else can do. America will not elect a president who will do the right thing and declare moral bankruptcy. That won't even make a difference in the eyes of the nations we have hurt. Orr we can follow McCain and O'Reilly. Their plan will do nothing but capitalize on the interest thus increasing a debt that is already unpayable. In less than two months we shall see which way America decides to go.
