What Is Going To happen Here?

  I knew it was just a matter of time before I got around to writing about Egypt.  I have been following this compelling story since it started.  I will make a separate post on the topic.  Do you wonder if something like this could ever happen here in the U.S.? And what would it take to spark off such a revolution?  I am a proud American by birth, by allegiance, and in spirit.  It would definitely be a sad day but could become one of the most defining moments in history.  I served in the military so I have been on both sides of the spectrum.  What I want is for Congress to put aside egos and to work with President Obama to help strengthen this country back to prominence.  Americans need to act like Americans.  Why not buy American and start supporting more stateside causes instead of the overseas causes until everything is good here at home?  We tend to use patriotism as a knee jerk reaction after the fact.  After something terrible has happened.  Use all of your energy constructively instead of becoming part of the problem.  I see the "Tea Party" as a joke.  They have a good premise but no substance.  The people that represent them have crazy agendas.  Not to mention all of the negativity that has surrounded gatherings and protests.  They have changed the atmosphere of politics but not in a positive way.  The whole vote with your guns kind of mentality has no place in this society.  Just take a good look at what happened in Arizona.  I strongly feel that, due to the volatile atmosphere in politics, this event happened.  Not everyone is strong enough mentally to handle the in-your-face style of politics without taking it a step further.
     The events that have happened in Tunisia and Egypt might end up being a precursor to what's to come over there in other countries. Hopefully, we can all come together without taking it that far in the U.S.  What do you think is to come here in the states?  What do you think about the way things are going here?
