On this day of the Inauguration of President Obama, I wanted to write down what I feel on this day and what I think will be required by President Obama to succeed.


First and foremost I did not vote for President Obama because of the color of his skin, but the color of his character.  I did not vote for him because he was a Democrat but because he was a man with moral ideals.  I did not vote for him because he was not Bush but because he was his own man, outside the system and holding to no one except the People of the United States of America.  This is why I voted for President Obama.  I voted for hope, the hope that America could be returned to its former glory and respect around the world and in the eyes of God.


To succeed in his Presidency, President Obama will have to face insurmountable obstacles in the complete overhaul of “business as usual” in America.  These obstacles will require not only every ounce of courage and moral strength that President Obama can muster but the complete support of all of the American people.  I for one pledge my allegiance to help this President in any manor that I can.  I hope you can make that same pledge.


As part of that pledge, I would like to point out the biggest obstacle to the recovery and change from “business as usual” is the legal branch of our Government which has accomplished a quiet coup taking total control of the United States of America without a shot in anger being fired.


Over and over again the courts have circumvented the will of the people by overturning the majority vote of the people to infringe their will and agenda on We the People.  These same courts have protected the criminals who have looted this country for the entire Bush administration, and these same courts has used the Constitution and the Bill of Rights as toilet paper only using its power to protect their personal friends.  These courts and all the employees of these courts MUST be investigated and held accountable for their actions.  A nation whose laws do not apply to ALL EQUALLY is not a nation at all.  Failure to do this will only assure President Obama’s failure to change this country’s present direction of destruction.


If President Obama has the courage and the free will to address this issue, I would be more than happy to work with him and his justice department with a starting point that if handled correctly could spell a real change in the way our courts do “business as usual”.


President Obama, I ask you to remember the oppression that African Americans have faced for decades is now being applied across the spectrum of all races.  That same racist, oppressive agenda driven policy has been applied not based on the color of your skin, but the wealth in your pocket. It is time to bring equal rights and equal treatment for all Americans across the board in all aspects of our society.


To the American People, a word of truth here.  If President Obama does the right things to destroy the corruption in America, clean up the politics and restore the economy, things will get much worst before they get even a little better.  We as a country must understand that and prepare for that and not lose hope that we will recover.  It will be a very hard road for all of us.  I have one idea that may help “jump start” the process.


It was the mortgage debacle that started all of this.  It would be my idea to pay off all of those mortgages for those who deserve it.  This would allow the banks to get their money plus a SMALL profit thereby making them stable and stabilizing the economy.  In exchange for this “bail out”, each home owner/family will provide a five (5) year mandatory community service contract to rebuild America.  There is no free ride in America.  This would build the country from the bottom up providing a stable solid foundation to our nation now and well into the future.


On this day President Obama I wish you all the best to you and your family.  May God bless you and your administration and guide your decisions for all the Americans who elected you.  God Bless you and God once again Bless the United Stats of America.
