Good evening fellow Americans. My name isn't that important. I'm not running for office, but I am speaking to you this evening to deliver what I will call the Peoples' State of the Union. What do I want from you?

When you get a call telling you that you have been selected for a free gift, do you get excited?

Son: Just when I start to think Republicans might be right about Obamacare, they show once again that the only citizens they care about are the rich! The gap between the rich and the poor in this country keeps growing, and they won't even support increasing the minimum wage.

?Our coins say it--"In God We Trust." But surveys indicate that fewer and fewer Americans actually put their trust in God. For many, God seems to get in the way. To some, God and his commandments are the creation of an archaic Judeo-Christian belief system that just impedes needed cultural transformation.

As we once again inch our way towards Christmas, it's easy to be captivated by what C.S. Lewis called "the great cataract of nonsense that pours from the press and the microphone." Unwilling to let us enjoy a few weeks of holiday joy, political pundits trade barbed accusations with counterattacks.

With the distractions of Christmas sales, turkey dinners, big games, and the continuing Obamacare rollout disaster, you may have missed a critical Senate decision that changes our government in a way our Founding Fathers would never have supported.

Charles Krauthammer, former Democrat turned conservative pundit and columnist, said on Fox News, "If ObamaCare truly self-destructs,... it would really set back American liberalism for a decade at least.... It would discredit the entire enterprise of the expansion of government, which is at the heart of 'Obama-ism.'

President Obama has been this generation's Teflon president. Whether it's the poorly handled Benghazi attack and cover-up, NSA's information gathering, or the disastrous rollout of the Affordable Care Act, the blame has always rolled off the President's back.

If someone stole your identity and started using your credit for a spending binge, would you fight them? Would you immediately call your credit card company and try to cut off their access? Darn right, and you'd do whatever you could and proudly take the blame for stopping them. That's what conservatives have been doing!

As Ben Rhodes, Obama's deputy national security advisor, has said, "We're always open to diplomacy if we believe it will advance our objectives." The president talks of "trust but verify," but he's open to meeting our enemies halfway.

A leader's job is to keep hope alive. But as more and more Americans slip into prolonged unemployment and struggle to sustain their own confidence, hope is giving way to lower expectations.

As we approach the anniversary of 9/11, the numerous tributes bring back those painful days.

As a lawyer and politician, Abraham Lincoln was known for his stories and down-to-earth humor.

I couldn't help but wonder what might have been on the page our Founding Fathers would have crafted to guide them through the decisions they made in those early years. Here's my guess on what might have been on their page:

My dad used to say, "Life is a great trainer. You make your choices, and you live the consequences."

Special interest politics divide Americans and don't truly benefit those whom progressives promise to help.

On this coming Independence Day, may we not forget to thank God for this great country, for our many blessings, and for the importance of family in our lives.

Passing Obamacare without any Republican support invites partisans to focus more on repeal than support. When President Obama complains about Republican obstructionism and negative comments about his administration, I'm reminded of the words of Wes Purden, “Any politician who criticizes another politician for being negative is like a man going to a bordello and criticizing the woman for being scantily clad.”

On Memorial Day, tears were shed as programs across the country honored and prayed for those men and women who sacrificed their dreams in order that we might live out our own. Some Americans who had lost a son or daughter, a spouse, or a parent never got to see their loved one reach their full potential. Those soldiers who died left their dreams in their graves.

Over the years, even when I haven't voted for a given President, I've always come to trust that, though they were committed to different priorities and policies, they still had America's best interests at heart. I no longer think you do.
