Writing Prompt: “How Does Obama Inspire You?”

Yet Another Blog Comment:

This has been a primary that focused on real dialogue around character and issues… Yes, race and gender politics have been discussed but people seem to be voting based largely upon the value of the person and not some tribal or gender-based association.

It is amazing to see a black man and a white woman fighting for the nomination. I choose the black man based, I believe, entirely upon the man’s character, intelligence and demonstrated display of moral courage.

I can’t think a democract candidate in my lifetime that I voted for that I could say that about… including Bill Clinton. Bill’s negatives made me hold my nose and vote against the republican… again.

I hope Hillary’s supporters will adopt the same “less of two evils” approach that I’ve had to use for many rounds of Presidential selection.

Obama stands for some changes I’d love to see implemented:

In conclusion, Obama is hope for change that can start to fix the “no tax and overspend” politics that has become the hallmark of Republican greed and manipulation of a once great nation.

Debt and fear are terrible forces upon the human and public body… they lead to a failed economic system and an early grave.

They will attack Obama for spending money to fix problems for “those who won’t care for themselves” but that great lie needs to be confronted honestly and with great passion: it’s a hard fight to get people to see the consequences of socialized greed and indifference and it will take a great orator to help more people see the value of giving to make a better world.

“Obliterating Iran” is NOT the message I’d like to see America share with the world right now. The world would hope we could manage Iran emergence into power in their region and NOT force them into becoming excessively hostile to our interests. We can have a positive role in the world and we lost that leadership through our ill advised actions.

What we’ve been doing for 8 years has made our people and nation less safe and Obama has the original vision to find a better path to confront hatred… at home and abroad.

Hope? Yes, we should.
Fear? No, not any longer.
Change? Yes, we can.

Count on it.
Make it happen.
Be that change.

Will he fail? Only if we let it happen… and even then, he will have stood for something that can only be termed a success: trying to make the world better.

  • avoiding a politics of divisiveness and character assassination that drives good people from the process and leaves it to the most deceitful and manipulative personalities that can work those strategies to great effect
  • reducing the effect of lobbyists on the legislative decision process
  • focusing on issues that divide the very wealthy from the least of us
  • improving the perception that a strong country does invest in good governance and regulation that benefits and contributes to the greatest good
