What will become of America after the next election?

We all have concerns and most of them personal.

But in the broader framework of America as a nation, our country is hanging on the edge of fear and uncertainty.

No one trusts the candidates.

Nobody really has that much confidence in the direction we are going as a nation divided between the Liberal and the Conservative and that grey area, independent, that lies somewhere in the middle.

There are enough problems for us to bother with as is seen every day and evening in the national headlines.

In all my days I have not been so full of uncertainty about the direction our nation will take after the November elections.

We have our families to consider, our jobs, our communities and some are whispering in the dark the following words ... "I don't know who to believe in. I just can't live like this. Is our next president going to make or break us?"

Have you ever heard the saying, "You are full of brave words but in your heart are you not fearful?"

I suppose there are a number of checks holding Presidents back from doing too much or going too far in a wrong direction. Presidents have found difficulty in carrying out programs because they could not get support from Congress. Of course some of those were internal rather than external programs and were not supported because Congress and the POTUS were of different political leanings. But Richard Nixon was impeached and I think Bill Clinton was too? So there can be some checks on whoever is in power.

I've been "observing" America for a little over half a century. Biggest issue I see - and have always seen - is insularity. For a relatively large country with a relatively wide spectrum of immigrants, the country seems to have locked into a frontier mentality, in perpetuity. Distrust the unknown. Reward aggression and survivalism. Shoot first. Where can that end?

Agreed.
