Empty Promises And Loose Change
President Barack Obama’s resigning of the Patriot Act on May 26 left me and millions of others with a bitter taste in our mouth.
No changes to personal privacy where made, more of the same to come from a person who’s campaign was heralded as the ideal solution that this country needed in 2008.
I supported president Obama. During his campaign I encouraged others around me to give the man an ear, hanging at every word he’d say, with my optimism and common sense in the same hand.
But it’s June 2011. Guantanamo is still open, the aforementioned Patriot Act is still in play, the countries economic landscape is in shambles and people are fighting harder now then ever for the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
I should have known better, I guess. After all, they say politicians are always going to be politicians, but I expected more, something different.
It seems the only change most Americans have and will see is the change that rattles in their pockets.
