We Are The Ones We Have Been Waiting For


We can no longer blame our leaders, starting with President Obama, for betraying our trust and demand for change ~ for the time has come for Americans to realize that WE are the ones we have been waiting for: Allen L Roland

In 2008, I was one of the millions of Americans who voted for change. I felt Barack Obama represented a needed change from the blatant deception and lies of the Cheney/Bush administration.

I was one the millions of Americans who celebrated Barack Obama's victory and the chance for a new people oriented direction in Washington ~ based on integrity, transparency and honesty.

Little did I realize that a great river was beginning to flow .

I am now one of the millions of Americans who feel let down, if not betrayed, by President Obama and his promises of a new transparency in government, a withdrawal of our troops from Iraq and Afghanistan, the closing of guantanamo, the end of torture and renditions, the end of illegal spying of American citizens as well as the prosecution of those who betrayed our constitution.

The great river has slowly gained strength

With each column I write exposing the growing list of lies and deceptions of this administration I find myself joined by thousands if not millions of Americans who will no longer settle for politics as usual and are joined by our common desire
for truth and political fair play.

The great river is now beginning to run very fast .

Now I realize along with thousands if not millions of
Americans that I am in that swift river, trusting its destination and celebrating its power ~ for its power
is the voice of the people collectively demanding and acting for change .

For it's not the government we need to take back ~ it's the corporate control of our government and our citizens which must end.

The great river is now very powerful and swift and nothing can keep it from its destination.

It's message is clear ~ We can no longer wait for the leaders, we must all now be the leaders and demand honesty, transparency and change .

We must individually go inside and find our special role in an evolving loving plan in action and sing our song within a chorus of millions who are doing the same thing.

Only then will we understand this Message from
the Hopi Elders.

  1. The great river is in flow all over the world sweeping up people from all walks of life. We are all in this together.
    May God be with us.

    great work


  2. Its amazing to see so many people still believe in elections in the year 2010. Elections have never been real. They are just an illusion created to make people think they have choice, when in fact they have none. Its time to end political parties once and for all. We don't need them. There are better ways. We just have to take responsibility for our actions on a daily basis. Live by the golden rule. Unfortunately most people are still asleep and will never wake up. Its going to be a rough ride.

  3. For each and every one of you that were not perceptive enough to see that Obama is plainly a Corporatist, like every other POTUS to have screwed us around for a few decades, and that he is simply a continuation of the Fascism we have embarked upon (and almost succeeded in achieving) and belittled those of us who were SCREAMING this information while you were belittling us and pushing us to choose the "lesser of two evils":

    You dumb ass.
