America takes a new direction the very first day after an election. The people have spoken and have made a choice. Good or bad, it's time to get on with life.
There's always a lot of hindsight thrown about, and I enjoy speculating and analyzing where the turning points were. What were the significant events which changed the course of of democracy, and lead the electorate to the decision now cast in stone?
What I enjoy the most is that there is a new direction ahead. A fresh future and a chance to make things better. Or different anyway... And these days, different has to be better.
There is no question that America has hit bottom, and this nation we're past due for a new way of doing business in this world. You can measure this low point in the hysterical antics of our "hunker in the bunker - master of disaster" Vice-President Richard Cheney. The poster-child victim of terrorism.
The old guard and their old ways ways have failed us, and a new direction starts the instant we recognize that acknowledge that a new direction is needed.
