It seems a lot of people are calling for "change" & "unite America". Have people forgotten in only 7 years, George W. Bush ran on the same platform? George W. Bush declared we needed change, just like Senator Barack Hussein OBama. George W. Bush declared that he would unite the United States, just like Senator Barack Hussein OBama. George W. Bush ran on charisma, just like Senator Barack Hussein OBama. George W. Bush is a junior (named after his father), just like Senator Barack Hussein OBama. George W. Bush was able to raise of lot of money for his campaign, just like Senator Barack Hussein OBama. George W. Bush is Evangelical, just like Senator Barack Hussein OBama. George W. Bush has 2 daughters, just like Senator Barack Hussein OBama. George W. Bush had accomplished absolutely nothing legislatively before becoming President, just like Senator Barack Hussein OBama. So where is the change?
As a matter of fact, Senator Barack Hussein OBama called Dick Cheney his cousin. Dick Cheney is our Vice President who sent us to Iraq, and who is making millions of dollars along with Halliburton in Iraq. So again, where is the change?
I hear on news reports, countries like Ireland & Israel supporting Senator Barack Hussein OBama. Why do we care whom citizens of other countries want us to have for President? Do they ask us during their elections? No. Of course not. They vote for whom they believe will be best for their country, not ours. So why should we care whom other countries choose as our President. Oh...that is right...MONEY. Our Presidential campaigns are determined by money. And there is no stipulation on where the money comes from. So people in countries like Ireland & Israel can send money to candidates they like for U.S. President via the internet, which greatly influences our Presidential race.
It is time we, the citizens of the United States, take back our own country.
It is bad enough that countries like England come over here and have a hostile take-over of American companies...companies we depend on like Columbia Gas (our gas company that supplies & delivers our heating oil), and then they decide they need to raise our gas prices by 11% so they can make a profit.
It is bad enough that the dollar has plummetted, so European investors can buy up interest in American companies.
Now, the world influences our elections because they can fund candidates. The internet has made it very simple. And yes, money means everything in a Presidential election. Think about it...We hear about the Republican & Democratic parties because they are well funded. They have the money to be heard.
What about our less wealthy Presidential candidates?

Now, to be fair, money is not a new concept in politics. After all, our founding fathers believed that the average man was not intelligent enough to vote, and women were not allowed to vote at all. The only men that were allowed to vote were land owners...which meant men with money.
Today, women have the privilege to vote along with men, and no one has to take a reading test anymore before being allowed to vote. But not every citizen is allowed to vote in the United States. To vote, a person has to have an address. We have many homeless in the United States who are not allowed to vote simply because they do not have an address. So they are not counted. With returning vets; people losing their homes from natural disasters & the mortgage scam; people losing their jobs through no fault of their own because companies outsource to China, Mexico, India, and other countries; people not being able to get new jobs because of the power of the credit industry here, where credit scores can prevent a person from getting hired; there are many people becoming homeless in our country every day. And these citizens of the United States will not be allowed to vote.
Yet, people from other countries will have influence in our elections.
Lets start will Nigeria. Barack Hussein OBama's father was born & raised in Nigeria. By international law, this gives Barack Hussein OBama a duel citizenship. Of course Nigeria will help to fund OBama's campaign. After all, OBama has a stake in Nigeria as well as the United States, so he will want Nigeria to do well. Here is the CIA's site on Nigeria: https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/geos/ni.html
Now, according to the CIA website,
Joint Border Commission with Cameroon reviewed 2002 ICJ ruling on the entireHaving a father who was born and raised in Nigeria, and legally allowed to be citizen of Nigeria via international law, which side of this dispute do you believe OBama will take?
boundary and bilaterally resolved differences, including June 2006 Greentree
Agreement that immediately cedes sovereignty of the Bakassi Peninsula to
Cameroon with a phase-out of Nigerian control within two years while resolving
patriation issues; the ICJ ruled on an equidistance settlement of
Cameroon-Equatorial Guinea-Nigeria maritime boundary in the Gulf of Guinea, but
imprecisely defined coordinates in the ICJ decision and a sovereignty dispute
between Equatorial Guinea and Cameroon over an island at the mouth of the Ntem
River all contribute to the delay in implementation; only Nigeria and Cameroon
have heeded the Lake Chad Commission's admonition to ratify the delimitation
treaty which also includes the Chad-Niger and Niger-Nigeria boundaries
In all fairness, OBama is not the only Presidential candidate allowed a duel citizenship via international law. Senator John McCain was born in Panama. Even though the land was owned by the U.S. at the time, it is now part of Panama, and Panama could claim him.
So much for Democracy. We live in a country where some of our own citizens have no vote, yet we give voice to people of other nations who have the money to influence our elections. How democratic is that?
