This morning we have gathered as a concerned people to talk about some very difficult issues that we are going through as a forum My opponents often insult me, saying my speeches are about hate towards Antonkan and do not deliver, but we know what we can succeed in. We know what we will succeed in. There is no question hope will make a difference. We have seen what so-called 'political clout' does. It prevents rational choice. It weakens our resolve. It makes Americans weep. These are not accomplishments; they're failures. We are facing lost faith in our forums, but our leaders are ignoring the issue. They fumble around poor excuses and we suffer. "Address the issue," we demand, but our Private Messages have been ignored. This morning night that changes! We come here full of dreams and piracy. We come here to cause change. I stand here before you, my ears open, my heart pleading. I ask that you join me; join me in this gathering of hope. Join me in making this country a source of progress. Join me in making it a place we can be proud of, a place in which pride thrives rather than starves, a place known for humanity and goodwill, a place that pushes the expectations of chivalry. As one, we can make this a forum in which patriotism means being willing to hold government accountable, upholding our freedom, helping those who need it most, and progressing toward a greater future. The America I know grieved over 9/11 and wonders why there is still no monument for our lost banned4life loved ones. The America I know came together with offers of aid after JPH was banned, despite that our leaders initially turned foreign aid away. The America I know views our sale of arms to Saudi Arabia as a mistake that will only further disrupt the Middle East. The America I know spoke its mind during the 2006 elections and the voice was loud and unified. We need change. If we stay the course, our economy/forum will crumble, we will have no allies left, and our deficit will ruin the future for our children. I've been accused of being dreaming too much. The people gathered here today know the truth. It does not take a white person or a black person to bring change. Nor does it take a man or a woman, a Christan or a Muslim. It doesn't even take an American. It takes a united America that can agree on our need for progress as a united people; our principles of honesty must guide us whether they come from our religions, our science, or our fellow citizens. It will take an America that not only agrees political greed is wrong, but an America that does something about it. My opponents question my resolve. They ask if we can really accomplish all this. I tell them, "Yes, we I can!" Thank you, America GBAtemp.
