An Obama victory would be good for the country, because he posesses an academic mind and that is needed at this time to deal intelligently with the
issues at hand, it has been proven that in the past with the likes of a Rhoades scholar and great political mind, as with Bill Clinton, would elevate
the thinking beyond our current cretan like foreign policies and actually use reason to deal with the world and regain trust amongst our friends by
using diplomacy as the ultimate tool.
It has been proven from the last 8 years that cowboys that have axes to grind are not good leaders, neither are mediocre and non critical
thinkers, also as many have forgotten, the biggest injustice for the American people that could have ever happened was to allow 2 corrupt, big oil men
become the president and vice president whose main agenda was to line their pockets and secure future interests that were based solely on the
profiteering of their war machine, much of their strategies were based soley on their own personal oil interests and business ventures such as
Haliburton and the like, however, the purposes were spun into a this is good for America context .
With Obama we will gain a different perspective, a man that came up from meager beginnings and not some rich, elite dynasty, someone that
actually knows politics and people from the street and grass roots level, hopefully because of that we can begin to rebuild America internally and
deal more seriously with the domestic issues that we are facing from the broken infrastructure to the fractured education system.
He not only understands the political system and the constitution from a theoretical perspective he also has hands on experience, he will be able to
soundly apply many of the good world statesman fundamentals needed from the oval office to once again gain credibility, however, just because one is
not a warhawk that does not signal weakness.
We have abused our own military and economic resources to push our ideology onto others in the world forcefully before completely exhausting
diplomatic efforts and unfortunately had to make up much of the intelligence supporting our efforts, that mindset has eroded a great degree of faith
that people in the world and even our allies in Europe had for our great country.
Hopefully if Obama does become president we can begin to rebuild the relationships so if we ever do need a coalition of the willing again it will be
truly those that are for us and with that we start to regain the respect in the world as the responsible leader of the free world.
