Respect Is Lacking
This presidential election is over, yet the “The Public Speaking” is filled with whiners who find it hard to accept that Romney lost. Some yearn for the days of Reagan, or consider all the “ifs” that might have changed the outcome of the election. You lost; get over it.
This newspaper had the presence of mind to understand the obvious reasons why Obama deserved another four years, yet took verbal abuse for endorsing the better candidate. Would Romney have won if The Pilot had endorsed him?
It’s clear to me that there is a deep-seated dislike for Democrats in this local area. Had Romney won the election I would support him, without comment, as president of this country. Why? Because the majority of the people voted for him.
This alone demands a level of respect and honor from every U.S. citizen. The comments and disrespect sometimes thrown at President Obama’s feet are unfounded, undeserving and downright un-American.
In today’s newspaper I received a brown paper bag to help support the “Heart of Carolina” food drive, a noble deed sponsored by many local businesses. Might we consider this act of helping those people in need in Central and Eastern North Carolina one of good Christian values? I only mention this because when the government does this, be it food stamps or a form of temporary welfare, it’s called “entitlements” or “gifts.”
I do not mean to diminish the efforts of the Carolina Food Drive. I just question the values of those taking a harsh stance when the government sees to those in need.
