GOP terrified by hope, because people have have hope and faith, have courage.  They are indefatigable an undefeatable.

Of course we need change, and that is what Pres. Obama and the Dems are trying to do but the GOP and Big Money want to stop them with lies, mistruths and distortions.  Pres. Obama's administration has already passed credit card reform, healthcare reform, equal pay for women, and many other accomplishments.  He has created more jobs in his first 8 months than the whole 8 years of the Bush administration.  This is a fact.  He has also lowered taxes for most Americans except the top 2 percent, main stream media will not tell you about that little tidbit!  

The reason we Americans have such a high-tax burden is because for years and years, due to tax loopholes, and tax breaks, the wealthy and big business Corporations have had to pay very little or no taxes at all, so average, everyday Americans have to shoudler the tax burden.  Is this fair?  Let's be clear, Loopholes are just another way to lie, cheat and steal and basically, get over on the American people.  

And, why on earth would minority leader Bohener, would stand side-by-side over the weekend with a Nazi sympathizer and dignify that era is beyond belief?  If that does not tell you something about their dark mindset.  Of course, media did not cover that much either.  Along with the GOP, media too have sunk to a new low.  

By Tom Carney: "It is worth noting that the people’s victory in the 2008 election cycle which saw the election of the our first African American President was driven by the energy of Hope. Hope is Cosmic Energy. It is an aspect of the Mother. It is another name for Goodwill. It sustains and nurtures and makes a way for the Good to  appear.

That this Cosmic power has been the target of the onslaught of fear and hate generated by the sophists of darkness is understandable. They are terrified by Hope. People who have hope and faith, have courage. They can and do cooperate for the Common good and the General Welfare. They are indefatigable and undefeatable.

So today, the retrogressive forces have managed to create a virtual 100 year storm of fear and hate that has sapped the hope and faith of many of our brothers and sisters. What we need to do is realize that the dominant vision in the national media is a lie, an illusion ginned up to terrorize us and make us doubt our hope and faith.

As I said, this is nothing new either for humanity or for us here in this nation. We started this country because we were yearning for freedom from the control of the super wealthy and powerful "kings" rulers of the nations of Europe. We were faced with a battle to claim our freedom from such control. We called it the American Revolution.

We had the faith, hope and courage that enabled us to triumph over overwhelming odds at that junction of evolution. We triumphed then, but once again we are being faced by an identical challenge. Will we be a free nation or will we be subjects of kings, ruled again by the super wealthy by whatever new names they have tried to hide themselves behind?
I have lately found myself being drawn again and again to these words from one of our ancestors.

"These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives everything its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated." Tom Paine The Crisis #1"'

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
