Election Crisis 2016

For eight long years, Barack Hussein Obama served the United States of America. He’s been in office since I was an eleventh grader, which seems quite a long time ago. Now an historical era is set to come to an end, an era that saw the elimination of Osama bin Laden and the lessening of the great war overseas (and the rise of a new threat called ISIS/ISIL). It wasn’t the greatest eight years but who could have done better, right? The time now comes to elect a new president. It is a time when the country has a choice between two (and other) choices. Choosing a new president means shaping the future identity of the homeland.

Come this November, I’ll be choosing between either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton. My options are quite limited in terms of who is better, but I can narrow it down to two things: Trump is for the rich and will cut off all food stamps and health benefits for the poor; Clinton is for the common folk and will keep Obamacare and everythingย peachy from 2009 til now. Do I really care? I should but at this pointย I’ve got better things to worry about.

  1. Continue to follow the political arena. But a word of caution from an oldie…. and Mr. Jefferson. “The man who reads nothing at all is better educated than the man who reads nothing but newspapers.” This would go for the news cycle one. Be sure to watch many different news organizations. AND “Do you want to know who you are? Don’t ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you.” Be sure you know what people actually did do… not what reporters ‘say’ they did. Even common folk like us can see truth if we are careful not to be blinded by political hyperbole and rhetoric. I enjoy seeing well-informed young people seeking truth.
