In January

As I read the news these days, I can't help but think that the Obama presidency will be challenged in a most extraordinary way. His fans have a plan in their heads; a vision. And each one will be disappointed because it won't be the same as the President's vision. It might be close to it, but there will be disappointments when the reality of politics makes those dreams…simply dreams. And the opposition is furious. They are making nice right now; being civil and doing a lot of smiling for the camera. But after the inauguration, the knives will come out. Better get used to hearing the word, 'socialism' used for anything suggested by President Obama; even though those who speak the word have no idea of what it means. We live in a socialist country. We have for years; ever since we abandoned Jefferson's 'Yeoman farmer' model of governance. What's at issue is… how much socialism do we want?
