A MAN WILL SPEAK
The American Presidency carries with it an all-encompassing sacred trust. The clarion call to the elected one is to represent American’s health, safety, and welfare. This charge is not dependent on citizen socio-economic, health, educational background, marital status or for that matter anything else. When the President takes the sacred oath the people’s needs, wants, goals, aspirations are all his.
China, India, and the countries of the world are not his charge. He should be first and foremost an advocate of the greatest business system on the earth and its citizens. Tonight millions of Americans will hear Presidential words meant to give a caring reassurance to the millions who are out of work and many of whom who can no longer support their families. Those through no fault of their own, one out of seven Americans, are currently living off food stamps. They will be listening tonight and hoping for a better day. They will be hearing many adjectives and verbs meant to portray a vision of sorts they have heard before. Words crafted to give an impression of care and concern for the large audience.
Yet the underlying question will center on the man’s sincerity or lack thereof. Have his words in the past been accompanied by real actions? The answer when viewed historically is a resounding NO. With over twenty million Americans out of work, with millions now unable to pay their bills, with debt spending at an all-time high, with food stamps being used everywhere, is this man sincere? NO.
The time has arrived for the nation to entertain its divine given right. An election will be coming in 2012 and from the North, South, East, and West will come citizens who will vote for a new day of jobs, freedom, and dreams. People will be coming to cast their ballots and when it’s all said and done and their votes have been counted it will indeed be morning once again in America.
