We live in a pretty ideal country, the USA. I don't have to devise a new country. We already have a fine place to live.
However, it's not a perfect country. As our forefathers said, they were going to form "a more perfect union". They knew they didn't have a perfect country, and they also knew they would never have a perfect country. They were simply creating a new and improved nation. The past 230 years has been the history of making this country a better place for everyone to live.
Over the past 230 years, we have abolished slavery; given women the right to vote; created equal rights for people of all races, colors and religions; abolished prohibition; legalized unions; improved working conditions for employees; created minimum wages and maximum hour laws; created Social Security and Medicare for the elderly, etc., etc.
Today's New Frontiers involve creating universal health care coverage; promoting embryonic stem cell research; establishing gay rights including the right of same-sex marriage and the right to serve openly in the military; protecting abortion rights for all women; legalizing marijuana and taxing the sale thereof (like liquor); creating reasonable gun control laws; safeguarding and protecting the State of Israel and not placing undue pressure on the Israeli government to jeopardize the security of its people; normalizing relations with Cuba and allowing all Americans to freely travel there; keeping religion out of the public sector so that all persons can practice religion (or non-belief) in their own way without imposing their religious beliefs on others, etc.
Conservatives call most of these programs "Socialist" -- which is a lot of malarkey. These are all-American programs and they are part of what makes capitalism work. They make the system function fairly so that many more people can participate in the abundance that capitalism produces, not merely the few at the top.
Conservatives have always opposed social progress and they continue to do so. Conservatives are Communists because, like Communists, they want most of the material goods and wealth to be concentrated in the hands of a few people at the top (in the case of Communism, that was the Communist Party leadership). Conservatives are America's Real Terrorists because their policies of de-regulation and using the tax code to re-distribute wealth to the few people at the top almost destroyed our
economic system, and because they fight tooth and nail against the social and economic programs that would make this a better, fairer, healthier and stronger country.
Obama is very much on the right track with his policies. As the Right-Wing Hate Media attacks Obama with ever-greater venom, it becomes even more important to expose their lies and show people how much damage the Right-Wing is doing to this country.
In short, we have a great country. We also have a duty to stop the Right-Wing from wrecking it.
