SOUND OFF: If There WAS NO Obama Who Would You Vote For President?
Since the GOP Electorate’s entire platform is based on Obama, what would it look like if he weren’t around?
Please forgive me for regionalizing because I know we have a lot of visitors from all over the globe but allow me if you will to talk for a second about America. I think I’ve reached a state of embarrassment for my beloved country. Sure this country continues to take part in racial inequity dating back to the Framers of the constitution. Racial disparities still exude in every industry and Economic structures are set up to eliminate the middle class, making the undeserved poorer and the rich to get richer. But honestly, that’s kind of why we love this country isn’t it?
These inconsistances aren’t just isolated to America. We see them all over the world however social oppression is often just a way of life…understood. Here we are placed under the hope (and sometimes delusion) that we can buck and change those norms. Hell, that’s how we got an African American President. Something we all believe could never happen in our lifetime, just a generation removed from the Civil Rights Era debacles.
But with a still struggling economy, a legislative branch at a stale mate on virtually all issues and an approval rating hovering at 40% its not surprising that America is looking into other options in advance of Obama seeking a second term. But what if he weren’t? What if the likes of Gingrich, Mitt, Perry and Citizen Cain were all we had to choose from. What if Hillary or maybe Edwards on the left jumped into the mix? Who would you vote for President if there WERE NO Obama to vote for? SOUND OFF!
