State of the Union, Part 1, September 14, 2009

Psychologically, ideologically, we are a failed state. We are a nation adrift. Yet we maintain our Union, and its government continues to function. Though that function seems to be only by the power of tradition. Were we not such an apathetic people, I believe this would be a time of revolution. Or, at the very least, a time of great change.

Change. Obama promised change. And now, even his most ardent supporters are becoming disillusioned at the lack of it. At his indecisiveness. At his lack of plan, a backbone, for his great behemoth of a vision. But what is the alternative?

The alternative is a rudderless Republican congregation, lacking not only a rudder, but even a captain. A party with no leader to deliver its message, but, no matter, it has no message to deliver.

And yet, we should not be hopeless.

Or should we.
