In my opinion, now that the primary season is over, the many facets of the Democratic Party will unite and get ready for the general election. Both Barrack Obama and Hillary Clinton ran tough and aggressive campaigns and wound up very close in the popular vote. It may take a few weeks for the Clinton supporters to get over the hurt of a second place finish, but time should heal any lingering wounds. Once the millions of Democrats who voted for Senator Clinton reflect on the possibility of a third Bush term led by John McCain they will rally behind the Democratic nominee.
Without question, Senator Obama has been a very strong candidate. He has exhibited the ability to energize folks who have been shut out of the national political scene in past elections. They now see a bridge over the wide gap that separated them from the elite and powerful in America. Minorities are not the only folks who have been virtually shut out of this country’s political system and a meaningful place in the operation of the national government. Working men and women of all races have been on the outside looking in. It was evident that women had a champion in Senator Clinton, and those who supported her will certainly join the Obama campaign. There is no way that all of those folks who have been shut out can support the GOP candidate.
I believe you will see all Americans joining forces to bring about meaningful change in the way our national government has been run. The powerful special interests have had their way during the years of the Bush Administration and folks won’t tolerate four more years of Bush-Cheney-Rove rule. The issues left for John McCain to base his candidacy on can’t be viewed as good news for the GOP nominee.
The Iraq war and the horrendous state of our nation’s economy are a millstone around John McCain’s political neck and he is definitely on the wrong side of these critical issues. I look forward to working for the election of a man who has the right vision for America and the ability to carry it out. There is much to be done and a short time in which to do it. There are a number of critical issues that will assure Senator Obama’s election as the next President of the United States of America. The most compelling reasons we can’t afford an older version of George W. Bush are that:
We can’t afford for oil companies to promulgate our nation’s energy policy.
We can’t afford a national policy that leaves millions of American citizens with no health insurance.
We can’t afford for the powerful drug industry to control the FDA and put dangerous drugs on the market and at prices many folks can’t afford.
We can’t afford for powerful lobbyists for large corporations and other special interests to literally set policy for and run the federal government as an unofficial fourth branch of government.
We can’t afford for our court system to be closed to ordinary citizens who would be at the mercy of the powerful in Corporate America.
We can’t afford for global warming to destroy our environment and harm people all over the world as a result of the effects of climate change.
We can’t afford the outsourcing of industrial jobs to foreign counties.
We can’t afford to continue putting the tax burden on middle-income Americans while allowing the rich and powerful – including many large corporations – to avoid paying their fair share of taxes.
We can’t afford the wild and uncontrolled spending by the rich and powerful in political campaigns which may be the root cause of many of our nation’s problems.
We can’t afford to put our troops in future wars that have no justification when judged by any military or national security interest standard.
We can’t afford to continue the record trade deficit, which has put our nation in bad economic times.
We can’t afford the record budget deficits built up during the Bush years, going from a healthy surplus to a deficit that our grandchildren will be paying.
When you consider the sad shape in which George W. Bush has left our country – while his political buddies have become even richer – it’s easy to see why the Democrats should win, not only the presidency, but also both Houses of Congress. I am firmly convinced that Barack Obama will be the instrument of meaningful change our country so badly needs, starting in January of 2009. I believe he will put together a team of competent individuals who collectively will run the national government in an honest and ethical manner. There won’t be any Dick Cheneys or Karl Roves in the Obama inner-circle with agendas that aren’t in the best interests of the American people.
