What to think.

I am no more comfortable with the state of our Union today than I was yesterday. President Obama is an orator of the highest order, while listening to him it is easy to be swept along in the current of his words and the emotions of his message.

I like that as a Nation we are attempting to do something and I find it difficult to criticize with out offering another solution. I do not have a solution, I do have concerns, when the person directly responsible for increasing the size of government looks me in the eye and tells me he is against big government, it makes me uneasy. When the person responsible for increasing the budget substantially tells me he is going to halve the budget, I get uneasy.

I fear that without decreasing the size of the bureaucracy, and the fines, fees, and taxes associated with it, we are not going to arrive anywhere good. The new President is not decreasing the size of the bureaucracy, he is expanding it and that makes me feel uneasy.
