Change we can believe in?

After running the most effective campaign $ 1 billion can buy, Barak Obama has won the presidency of the United States of America.

If I sound bitter, I’m not. The American public has spoken. This election was about change; and clearly Barak Obama offered the kind of change that voters were looking for. My only question is, what kind of change exactly is that?

Throughout the election, I came across Obama supporters who had no idea what his record was or what he planned to do once elected. But , they did know that we needed change. My response was always the same, “Out of the frying pan, into the fire- That’s change!”

My brother David seems to think that Barak Obama will learn from the mistakes of the past. He believes that unlike Clinton, who also had the benefit of a working majority in both houses of congress, Obama will not adopt a far left agenda. For the nation’s sake I hope he is right.

However, I just don’t think Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi will be able to help themselves. When left unrestrained by conservative roadblocks, liberals seem to develop a policy turrets syndrome. “RAISE TAXES!” “UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE!” “END GLOBAL WARMING!”

You name it, they will propose it. It doesn’t matter whether or not it will work; or what the negative consequences may be. As long as it sounds good they will run it up the flagpole. But this time they have enough people to salute and actually pass their liberal agenda. The only question that remains is whether or not a man who was the most liberal member of the Senate will sign on the dotted line.

Forgive me if I am a bit skeptical.
