One of the main blemishes that people are finding on Presidential candidate Barrack Obama’s appeal is that the Senator has been in the political game for only a couple years.
Excuse me, but are people saying that they would rather have someone in the White House who is so power-hungry or so real-world-inept that they’ve made a career out of taking money from one section of the population and giving to another (mostly friends) and keeping a substantial chunk for himself and his retirement? That was a long sentence.
The government was founded on the concept that the government should be composed of the people which it governs. When we get into the situation where a certain group of people are constantly in control of 1/3rd of the U.S. economy, it becomes a class war that pits the government against the people, and that is a dangerous thing.
We need political novices in control. We need more than 8% of incumbents to lose their elections. We need new ideas in the stagnant government. Most of all, we need to keep ours a government of the people and by the people (i think that was right, Lincoln).
I don’t care much for what Obama has said with regard to health care and Social Security, or pretty much anything, but I like his demeanor, and I definitely like his lack of political experience.
