If you are in the United States at the moment and you turn on your TV or pick up the paper or in most cases listen to a radio program you can not help but be bombarded with what is happening in the world of politics and the up coming election.
Now I must confess that I do take note to some degree, although I just have to shake my head in amazement some times with all the claims and counter claims. Of course this is not just about the US, but is something the world over, that is, in countries where the population is free to vote.
As a non American with no agenda, I must confess that when it comes to the Republican candidate for the oval office Mitt Romney, at times he leaves me speechless. I get the impression he feels he should be the President because it is his right. He makes claims that he has no hope on delivering on. NONE what so ever, yet half the country thinks he will get the job done and things moving again. Rubbish. America, look in the mirror and see why things are the way they are in your country and change your ways. The same can be said for Greece and Spain and all the European countries that are having to struggle at the moment.
But when I sit and listen to what is said by those on the right in America, I just shake my head. Ladies and Gentleman you do not have any idea what you are talking about in most cases. You do not answer the questions that are put to you by the media. You just spin and spin and spin.
I have a friend who tells me that the current president is a Muslim and a Communist who should be shot. Now this man claims to be a Christian, but wants his leader dead. When the Supreme Court hands down a decision and it goes against what he wants then he will not accept the umpires decision, but wants to tell the world he lives in the greatest democracy in the universe. He tells me that the US will be finished as a nation if there is four more years under Obama. What a load of crap. Life will go on. You see one of the big problems in the land of Uncle Sam is that, no one wants to pay for anything. They want it all for free. Well if there is no money collected who is going to pay the bills. Fix the bridges that are falling down and repair the roads. I could go on and on.
