Excerpts from Obama victory speech 2012

Democracy in a nation of 300 million can be noisy and messy and complicated. We have our own opinions. Each of us has deeply held beliefs. And when we go through tough times, when we make big decisions as a country, it necessarily stirs passions, stirs up controversy. That won’t change after tonight and it shouldn’t. These arguments we have are a mark of our liberty, and we can never forget that as we speak, people in distant nations are risking their lives right now just for a chance to argue about the issues that matter, the chance to cast their ballots like we did today.
But despite all our differences, most of us share certain hopes for America’s future. We want our kids to grow up in a country where they have access to the best schools and the best teachers a country that lives up to its legacy as the global leader in technology and discovery and innovation, with all the good jobs and new businesses that follow.
We want our children to live in an America that isn’t burdened by debt; that isn’t weakened by inequality; that isn’t threatened by the destructive power of a warming planet.
We want to pass on a country that’s safe and respected and admired around the world; a nation that is defended by the strongest military on Earth and the best troops this world has ever known but also a country that moves with confidence beyond this time of war to shape a peace that is built on the promise of freedom and dignity for every human being.

…Democracy in a nation of 300 million can be noisy and messy and complicated. We have our own opinions. Each of us has deeply held beliefs. And when we go through tough times, when we make big decisions as a country, it necessarily stirs passions, stirs up controversy. That won’t change after tonight and it shouldn’t….

(A democracy of 300 million will never be just, it will always be noisy, messy, complicated, villainous and tyrannical.
A Democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting on what is for dinner, what sacrifice will the minority make to the majority?
We live in a constitutional republic, a government founded to protect fundamental natural rights created by a sovereign public.
In our constitutional republic we offer peace, liberty and justice for all through public equity and personal liberty
No power in this republic has the authority to make big decisions that violate our natural rights)

…These arguments we have are a mark of our liberty, and we can never forget that as we speak, people in distant nations are risking their lives right now just for a chance to argue about the issues that matter, the chance to cast their ballots like we did today…

(These arguments, this left and right voting feels like liberty, has the mark of liberty, but remember priests and rabbis around the world are dying in order to enact their rights, their true liberty to endorse a candidacy, or public justice; unlike our priests and rabbis acting happily under 501c3 restraint, which have as much effect as we had in change today)

…But despite all our differences, most of us share certain hopes for America’s future. We want our kids to grow up in a country where they have access to the best schools and the best teachers…

(Despite all of our differences, most people holding an ideal can’t dictate to the monitory, Even if the most want compulsory uniform government education, we minority maintain the right to government free schools, education and government free teachers)

…a country that lives up to its legacy as the global leader in technology and discovery and innovation, with all the good jobs and new businesses that follow.
We want our children to live in an America that isn’t burdened by debt; that isn’t weakened by inequality; that isn’t threatened by the destructive power of a warming planet…

(Some of us want a legacy of government free technology, private bank free national currency,
We demand a nation that can’t place a lien or debt on our children’s unalienable futures;
We demand a nation that is strengthened by the infinitely unequal potential of the individual’s freed independent potential, ingenuity, responsibility and stewardship of their own private domains; yet protected by law, justice and equity within the public’s domain
We demand to not be threatened by inflated fear of economic failure, terrorist invasion or the change of climates)

…We want to pass on a country that’s safe and respected and admired around the world; a nation that is defended by the strongest military on Earth and the best troops this world has ever known…

(We want to pass on a country that is free and just before it is safe, respected, admired or defended around the world by the strongest might ever released on earth.
Remember liberty over security)

…but also a country that moves with confidence beyond this time of war to shape a peace that is built on the promise of freedom and dignity for every human being…

(We must move with humility in order to have peace
Peace shapes itself because true peace can’t be forced or shaped but must be volentary.
We must actually allow freedom and no longer only promise it or attempt shape it; we must not merely restore currently ignored human dignities but truly uphold constitutional civil liberties, declared for all mankind)

…Tonight you voted for action, not politics as usual…
…But that doesn’t mean your work is done. The role of citizens in our Democracy does not end with your vote. America’s never been about what can be done for us. It’s about what can be done by us together through the hard and frustrating, but necessary work of self-government. That’s the principle we were founded on.

…Tonight you voted for action, not politics as usual…
…But that doesn’t mean your work is done. The role of citizens in our Democracy does not end with your vote…

(Actually Our Nation is a Republic of Independent States United under a Constitution and specifically not a democracy; it only contains democratic representation processes as an aspect of certain offices)

… America’s never been about what can be done for us. It’s about what can be done by us together …

(“Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country” The individual, the personal reasonability, the YOU, is removed all together, JFK roles over as Marx is resurrected before our eyes)

…through the hard and frustrating, but necessary work of self-government…

(Democratically selecting an oppressive government yourself, no matter how hard and frustrating, is nowhere near the same thing as a Republic, as real individual freedom, self-government, self-governance and self-sovereignty)

…That’s the principle we were founded on.

(No the Founding Principle is the peaceful personal pursuit of happiness under a self governing, free and unmolested individual, not what we as a collected democracy can do through concensus.
I thought this nation was founded on established fundamental natural rights, self determination and the demand for the free exercise of conscience and responsibility for ones own life.)

This country has more wealth than any nation, but that’s not what makes us rich. We have the most powerful military in history, but that’s not what makes us strong. Our university, our culture are all the envy of the world, but that’s not what keeps the world coming to our shores.
What makes America exceptional are the bonds that hold together the most diverse nation on earth.
The belief that our destiny is shared; that this country only works when we accept certain obligations to one another and to future generations. The freedom which so many Americans have fought for and died for come with responsibilities as well as rights. And among those are love and charity and duty and patriotism. That’s what makes America great…

…This country has more wealth than any nation, but that’s not what makes us rich. We have the most powerful military in history, but that’s not what makes us strong. Our university, our culture are all the envy of the world, but that’s not what keeps the world coming to our shores.
What makes America exceptional are the bonds that hold together the most diverse nation on earth.

(No, it is that we were unbound without claim holding us. It is Not the bonds we each have to one another, but our individual unalienable rights which can’t be violated, bound or liened. That is the wealth.)

…The belief that our destiny is shared;…

(Not the infinite indivisible individual potential and capacity of everyone but a shared destiny? You can’t really mean this?)

… that this country only works when we accept certain obligations to one another and to future generations…

(We have one obligation; to respect, protect and defend the fundamental natural rights of everyone from all forms of tyranny and oppression.)

… The freedom which so many Americans have fought for and died for come with responsibilities as well as rights.

(We only have one responsibility; to respect, protect and defend the fundamental natural rights of everyone from all forms of tyranny and oppression. To Defend the unalienable free agency and conscience of man.)

…And among those are love and charity and duty and patriotism. That’s what makes America great…

(Your saying I am responsible as a citizen to love people, to give to them, to be subject to them and praise the nation that makes this duty, this responsibility, this obligation as enforceable and valuable as my rights? That is what makes America great?)

…And tonight, despite all the hardship we’ve been through, despite all the frustrations of Washington, I’ve never been more hopeful about our future.
I have never been more hopeful about America. And I ask you to sustain that hope. I’m not talking about blind optimism, the kind of hope that just ignores the enormity of the tasks ahead or the roadblocks that stand in our path. I’m not talking about the wishful idealism that allows us to just sit on the sidelines or shirk from a fight.
I have always believed that hope is that stubborn thing inside us that insists, despite all the evidence to the contrary, that something better awaits us so long as we have the courage to keep reaching, to keep working, to keep fighting.

…And tonight, despite all the hardship we’ve been through, despite all the frustrations of Washington, I’ve never been more hopeful about our future…

(Are you saying…They, Almost stopped us from attacking Lybia, Syria, Pakistan, Egypt, etc, Almost exposed Fast and Furious, Almost exposed US drug farms and US drug war dichotomy, Almost exposed derivatives and global monetary exchange, Almost stopped nationalized health care, almost exposed smart grid, almost stopped EPA regulations, Almost stopped NDAA 2012, now I am a lame duck president and will not have those Washington frustrations)

…I have never been more hopeful about America…

(I bet you have hope for your belief in our Duty and Obligation to one another and Patriotism to our ‘Democracy’)

…And I ask you to sustain that hope…

(no Thank you)

…I’m not talking about blind optimism, the kind of hope that just ignores the enormity of the tasks ahead or the roadblocks that stand in our path. I’m not talking about the wishful idealism that allows us to just sit on the sidelines or shirk from a fight…

(I said no Thank you)

I have always believed that hope is that stubborn thing inside us that insists, despite all the evidence to the contrary, that something better awaits us so long as we have the courage to keep reaching, to keep working, to keep fighting…

(To keep doing the same thing over and over again, insisting that something better is going to come, despite all evidence to the contrary is the definition of insanity. My definition of hope is very different Mr. President and I will not sustain hope in insanity.)

America, I believe we can build on the progress we’ve made and continue to fight for new jobs and new opportunity and new security for the middle class. I believe we can keep the promise of our founders, the idea that if you’re willing to work hard, it doesn’t matter who you are or where you come from or what you look like or where you love. It doesn’t matter whether you’re black or white or Hispanic or Asian or Native American or young or old or rich or poor, able, disabled, gay or straight, you can make it here in America if you’re willing to try.
I believe we can seize this future together because we are not as divided as our politics suggests. We’re not as cynical as the pundits believe. We are greater than the sum of our individual ambitions, and we remain more than a collection of red states and blue states.
We are and forever will be the United States of America.
And together with your help and God’s grace we will continue our journey forward and remind the world just why it is that we live in the greatest nation on Earth.
Thank you, America. God bless you. God bless these United States.

…America, I believe we can build on the progress we’ve made and continue to fight for new jobs and new opportunity and new security for the middle class…

(‘They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.’
Nearly 1 million prison inmate employees, Over 15,000 new IRS agents, a DHS, civilian national security force that is just as string, just as powerful and just as well funded as the US military, Scanners, Drones, Homeland Security Partnership Council etc.)

…I believe we can keep the promise of our founders, the idea that if you’re willing to work hard, it doesn’t matter who you are or where you come from or what you look like or where you love. It doesn’t matter whether you’re black or white or Hispanic or Asian or Native American or young or old or rich or poor, able, disabled, gay or straight, you can make it here in America if you’re willing to try.

(Our Founders did not promise the idea you can make it here if you are willing to try and work hard. They promised personal freedom and you were free to fail, if one merely tried and put in hard work but planted seeds on poor soil, late in the season, without enough water or was foolish in any other way, they were free to try, fail, learn, risk and ‘make it’ or not, they were free to keep what they learned and earned)

…I believe we can seize this future together…

(You are wrong, I will not consent and you can’t seize my future, my families future or their children’s)

…because we are not as divided as our politics suggests…

(I think we really might be)

…We’re not as cynical as the pundits believe. We are greater than the sum of our individual ambitions,…

(Whoa there, Individual Ambitions are not cynical.
The individual ambition to maintain fundamental natural rights; my life, my agency, my liberty and my property; the food, clothing and shelter for my family and my free ability to provide it, those ambitions are greater to me than your sum and defendable as my most prized possessions as well as the purpose and wealth of my nation)

…and we remain more than a collection of red states and blue states…

(We are a collection of free and independent states and of a free and independent people)

…We are and forever will be the United States of America.

(Not quite the same thing and Texas could still leave the union, but I hope we will never stop fighting to be a free and independent people.)

…And together with your help and God’s grace we will continue our journey forward and remind the world just why it is that we live in the greatest nation on Earth.

(I think we diverge on why we are a great nation quite a bit and I don’t need to prove anything to the world, Can’t we leave everyone alone and all just get along?)

…Thank you, America. God bless you. God bless these United States.

(Okay that’s more like it)
