First of all, I loudly and defiantly proclaim myself an INDEPENDENT in every sense of the word. I am not a "Republican" nor a "Democrat." I do not
think the country would be doing any better if McCain had won, for example.
I feel that the office of the presidency has been dwindling since the days of Kennedy and Nixon. These were the last two presidents to make bold moves
and enemies among TPTB, and they were punished (in different ways) for stepping too far out of line (in different ways). Since then, each sucessive
president has had less and less power to do real things. You want to know where the power REALLY lies? Its not in the oval offfice: its at the Fed, or
the Goldman Sachs boardroom, or the Military-Industrial complex, or big pharma, or big agribusiness, etc etc...we live in an age of SYSTEMS, not
EVEN SO, the President does have a remarkable amount of POWER at his disposal, should he choose to use it. Andrew Jackson shut down the US central
bank of the time; why can't Obama? Lincoln refused to borrow money from the bankers to finance the civil war and created the greenabck instead. BIG,
So far, all we've gotten from Obama is smooth talks and snappy hand-waves. Let's cut to the chase. Its time for some BIG, BOLD MOVES. Is Obama a
Lincoln or an Andrew Jackson? Does he have what he takes? Or is he another Rutherford B. Hayes?
