In a previous post, I quoted Patrick Henry, who said:
“[I]t is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts.”
That quote is inspired by a bible verse: Hear this, O foolish and senseless people, who have eyes, but see not, who have ears, but hear not. – Jeremiah 5:21 (ESV)
Now the siren’s scream is being muffled by the truth of change. Barack Obama just can’t seem to exclude “change” when it comes to his tax policy.
$50,000 - $60,000 - $70,000
How low will he go?
Will he change on abortion to 3-5 years? Will he change on military spending cuts to a buck a day? Will he change on gun control to jail anyone who owns a gun?
I just can’t take this so called “Change we need” anymore.
