Being from Ohio we get endless visits and much media attention regarding the presidential election. I wonder how people in states where there is no doubt about who the state will pick feel about this. It's almost as though the solid red or blue states don't matter. I don't know if there is a solution to keep interest high in these states but it seems like we should strive to make every vote mean something.

We didn't build this?

Everyone has heard President Obama's statement by now, You didn't build that.. It doesn't matter how you reacted to the statement some saw it as a denigration of people who have achieved success in the business world others just saw it as a statement on the importance of the federal government in any ones success.

I think the big difference come from peoples mind set and how we view success and failure. because if we didn't succeed on our own we can also say we didn't fail on our own. I think this is a major difference between the left and right. People on the left seem to look for societal cause for everything. That's why they seem to almost always  be looking to government for solutions. On the right  people tend to see success and failure as coming from our own personal decisions. I tend to agree with the right because opportunities are there for everyone it's all in what we do with our opportunities.

To once again fulfill the greatness that is the U.S.A. we need to stop blaming others for our shortcomings and quit expecting someone else to pave our way.
