The almost binary-choice involved in US-elections is daunting. When it comes to solving the world's solutions and choices in political parties/political programs that is a little scary to say the least! Is it really just a choice between good and bad? Right and wrong? Make the other candidate look bad? What always surprises me is the air of personal vendettas and mud slinging that surrounds US presidential elections. The 'person' seems to be more important than the political program during the campaigns. I like what Hillary tried to do for the US health care system way way back. She has a lengthy political career which is a bit longer and she has more merits to her name than Obama has. Both Clinton and Obama are political sly animals trying to play on the sentiments of the public.
I for one would applaud a black man becoming the next US president! Sure he will of course have something up his sleeve but so will Hillary.
I would also applaud a woman becoming the next US president! Women are powerful thinkers, strategists and leaders - a powerful woman at the top might be something the US/This World needs.
I applaud a politician who dares to say that the availability of (hand)guns / the right to bear arms are the cause of a lot of violence and accidental deaths in youths and not some video-game where pixellated blood is spilled. When the gun is there - there is a higher likelihood it is going to be used in some way. If it is not - well I don't have to go on right?
I applaud a politician who dares to say that some things in life and I especially mean basic needs like medicare and schooling should be available to all and not the happy few.
No doubt a lot of folk will just shrug and think nothing of the scribblings of a Dutch citizen, a country where pot is readily available and all 'Amsterdam mers' are dope-heads, we all wear wooden clogs and a little boy keeps the land from overflowing by keeping his finger in the hole of a dike. ;-P
Thank god I am not faced with the option to choose between the two. I can just sit back, relax and see what happens. I am curious to see which state will become the deciding factor in the 49%/51% 50%/50% outcome these elections will no doubt end up in.
