Maybe I'm a little too depressed today, but I'm really starting to think that no one is going to be able to take this country back. For the past three years we've all said that we can't afford a second Obama term. Obamacare will go into effect, we'll be trillions more in debt, more judges and czars appointed, etc. It was imperative that we elect someone in 2012 who could undo everything Obama has done.
It was an enormous task, but we had the strongest fighter with a proven record who we could put our faith into and work with to get it done. Now that she is out, it makes it really hard for me to stay in, too. It's hard not to think that Sarah is telling us it's a lost cause. I know, I know, I'm being way too negative right now and need to think of the bigger picture. But still. The Tea Party was my hobby. Supporting Sarah was my hobby. I took time away from my family to participate. With Sarah stepping back and saying that she needs to be with her family, that she's not willing to lead, then maybe I need to take a step back as well.
I'm being "Negative Nancy" right now I realize this. I'm not usually this way. But in my opinion there is literally no one who could change our country for the better like Sarah could. Even the strongest conservative doesn't have her bonafides and her ability to fight corruption and win. I'm starting to think that it's inevitable that our country will descend down into socialism and there's nothing we can do to stop it. We're too outnumbered. Yeah, I know her political career isn't over. She could be elected president when she's 65 and that would be great, but where does that leave us now, in 2012? Where will our country be in 20 years when she could come back?
I need to get outside and get some air. Sarah not running has changed my perspective on a few things. I'm being WAY too negative about our prospects.
