About Time...

Of course, for a beginning, as a German born in 1939, I am not enrtitled to give any comments.

But, secondly, I think it was about time to give sound having watched the development of world policy or politics - as you would like to put it.

During the period of Cold War when the wall was erected on August 13th, 1961 I served in the Bundeswehr, and all the draftees got their service prolongued by another three months.

It was then that I realized that there had to be something worth defending - against whom I didn't know yet.

I hadn't realized that only five years after after World War II the US were involved in another war -the Korean. And the effects are prevailing up to now...

When Vietnam started, I really started a lot, a load of thinking - trying to imagine what a great nation might imply engaging in such a tragedy.

Gulf War No. 1 (Was it Desert Storm? Bush Senior?)

Present-day gulf warship with no end to be seen and a cost of 10 billion dollars a week.

In between the engagement in Afghanistan, arming the Taliban against USSR fighting them.

To put it bluntly: The United States have deserved anything that is being done or has been done already by their actions fostering the forces which just suited them. You armed the Taliban (against USSR), you armed Saddam (against Iran), and your only concern was getting hold of the world's greatest supplies of oil. So George Double-U Blockhead was an ideal successor to his father.

What I want to tell is, that I think it is about time, that an Afro-American citizen should become the next President of the United States. It would even be better if a native American - a Red Indian - became your new President.

Don't take me wrong: I love America. My sister-in-law is American but has lived in Europe for almost 50 years...

See you...

I'm surprised that people who have lived through Marxist opression don't see through the lies and cover ups of this Socialist candidate. He's already tried to infringe the first amendment, by trying to have commercials that tell the truth about points of his history shut down. He's against the Second. His life has been formed by Communists , Terrorists, Islamists, but he doesn't want this known. He wants to confisicate profits. Will your profits be next? <br />
No nation has ever, in the history of man, taxed itself into prosperity. <br />
It is possible for a President to declare a state of emergency and suspend the Constitution. This is the only man I have ever seen, that just might do it, to meet his ends. He's already proven he's against the First Amendent, and the Second. He foments class, religion, political, and race warfare.<br />
Divide and conquer.<br />
Tired of Bush? What, the Economy, that was caused by our Democrat Congress? Energy prices, caused by our Democrat Congress, decade after decade, refusing We the People access to our own resources, while insisting on the largest transfer of capitol in the world's history, to nations that actively work against us? Tired of Iraq, and the WMD's that Hussein swore they had, while blocking the inspectors so much that the UN wanted to make a move on him... The UN. Who passivly watches until action has to be taken, then they cut and run, and call on US.<br />
There were no WMD's. Except for the chemical and biological weapons he committed genocide on his own people with (are these not, Mass Destruction?), and the 550 TONS of Yellowcake. Hussein says he did this out of fear of IRAN.<br />
Arrrgh.

Agree that with the US military power comes responsibility to use it wisely. Obama voted against the war and he was right.

I do hope there are more people that notice things like I do. Its very interesting to me that a person from another county would have the view that the one man that is in charge of the armed forces in the US ties him directly to the "will" of the people of the country. Besides the fact that our so called electoral system is so very corrupt, there is still something to be gained from this. If people outside the US view the actions of our president as the actions of our "will" then wouldn't it be a good idea to elect a good and sensible representative for the "will" of our country?

"To put it bluntly: The United States have deserved anything that is being done or has been done already by their actions fostering the forces which just suited them.

These "actions" are not of the United States people. We the people have been wronged by our governments actions. I know not one person that is not angry everyday by the governments "actions"<br />
It would be simple to say that we elected him into office, but that has been debated by many Americans. As a matter of fact, a friend informed me that her family found out that her grandfather voted for George, in both elections. <br />
What is debatable about that you say??<br />
Her grandfather passed in 1994. He lived in the state of Florida. It is very likely he was not the only dead person to vote for George.

Though I think it is good everyone has a chance to be elected race, sex, etc...I do not think it is wise to support a candidate<br />
solely because of their race. Merits should be considered first and foremost.

yes it is time to show that america gives everyone a chance, being that George the second got in office the second time ,as he did.America the all seeing eye is looking at you,the mind of the people.

We are a global nation. We need a leader who can present a face that represents all that is good about this country. Obama is a self-made man who has overcome tremendous adversity. He is the American Dream.<br />
The fact that he is black is incidental. Let's keep the dream alive.
