It’s time for a change.

The buck stops here and he's fresh out of ideas.

It’ll soon be time to cast your vote, so you have to look back at what the current politico has done for you over the last four years.

I see auto workers in Detroit, who no longer work on the line because that line no longer exists, and now have to swallow the indignity of watching their families live on food stamps.

I see decent people, who once had homes and aspirations, now living in tent cities.

I see coal miners in Ohio and Pennsylvania, fighting for their jobs, because they know those jobs are at risk from a president who seriously thinks some kid installing solar panels, manufactured in China, will keep the lights on.

I see out of control federal agencies, who believe it’s their job to crucify industries they don’t like, and who don’t give a damn about the local job losses.

I see thieves from the financial industry, who’ve destroyed whole businesses and livelihoods, retiring early into multi-millionaire lifestyles, with absolutely no prospect of punishment, when anyone else gets jail time for selling a dime bag.

I see the anger of hard-working men and women, who are now on the bench through no fault of their own and watching some east coast idiot on daytime TV lecturing them on how to buy exactly the right investment realty, or an equally stylish idiot from California, who makes a handsome living selling feng shui advice.

I see a mainstream media, who are still hopelessly in love with Obama, despite him being nearly universally despised by the working man, irrespective of the color of their therefore automatically racist butts.

I see a president, whose only apparent accomplishment, is giving the order to kill a terrorist, when everyone knew there was always going to be that payback for 9/11, no matter who was in charge.

I see brave men still fighting and giving their lives in a war that everyone knows is unwinnable.

I see a president, who not only never had any idea about how to help his country through its hour of need, but who’ll also continue to be just as clueless, if elected again.

I see a man who was found out in his first year in office and even then failed to man up to the job. I see a man who’s out of his depth, barely treading water and drowning.

I’ve heard lots of words from him over the last four years but seen nothing more than reaction to events, rather than action to get ahead of, and in control of those events.

Oh America, my America, you deserve so much better.

    And it’s a hard, it’s a hard, it’s a hard, and it’s a hard It’s a hard rain’s a-gonna fall.

    Not only does America deserve better, there is such a depth of remarkable talent in America to draw from. Unfortunately the Old Media won’t let us see it.

    Four more years of this will bring so much weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth. Rise up America and take back your country from this spreading mediocrity.

    Pointman. You’ve expressed the heartfelt thoughts of so many round the globe. Just substitute the the name of one’s own country, (Australia in my case) change the leader’s name and sprinkle the appropriate place names around and it’s a universal cry for change.

    Australians are flocking to http://www.michaelsmithnews.com where the daily release of documents cataloguing the systemic, ongoing corruption in political and Union circles is both damning and breathtaking in it’s breadth and depth. It’s worth a visit just to read the beyond politics comments of so many decent thoughtful people just wanting the restoration of honesty, decency, integrity, fairness and an end to the endemic corruption and retention of power-at-all-costs attitude of a hopelessly inept government elected on a lie, kept in place by crooks and a cobbled together bunch of three self-seeking, self-serving Independents and one Green sitting member!

    We have the misfortune to be saddled with arguably the most corrupt fatally flawed person ever to occupy the high Office of Prime Minister of Australia. She has so trashed the reputation of that position with her lying, spinning, stubborn ,wasteful economy- wrecking actions that it will take many years of hard effort for the next occupant to get Australia back on track and regain respect for the Office of Prime Minister.

    The MSM, ABC , assorted academics and so-called professionals in other fields apparently live in a plastic bubble in a parallel universe! They haven’t got a clue what’s going on in the real world nor do they want to know.

    I hope you get the change you want in America. The world in general deserves better than what leaders of many countries are currently providing.

    Pointman,

    This article from a Left-wing hack is interesting in its perception of the importance of the American experience to our 2013 election ……

    “THE way the American media reported it, the second debate between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney during the week was a bruising, bare-knuckle affair – the roughest and most aggressive presidential debate ever.”

    http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/news/opinion/taking-notes-on-americas-civil-war/story-e6frezz0-1226499521232

    As one commentator wrote: “The 2012 US presidential election campaign is being fought with tweets, hashtags, Facebook updates and emails in a battle for digital supremacy which may be a key to victory.”

    Elections don’t seem to be about policy and past performance at all – it’s about who can command the greatest resources to manipulate and harness the cyber world. Are people really so shallow as to only absorb the ‘message’ through tweets and texts? I fear that they are. Any in-depth analysis seems to be beyond people who have the attention-span of a gnat.

    I guess our respective election results will tell us where democracy stands in the 21st century.

      Hi Swanny,

      It’s interesting that Obama’s natural supporters outside the chic liberal MSM, are exactly the blue-collar workers who don’t do facebook, blogs or God forbid, tweeting. He may be totally wooing the MSM but I think he’s bouncing off the fathers and mothers, who’re chasing a third job to keep it all afloat.

      They can do all the polls they want amongst themselves, but I think the one poll that really counts is going to deliver one hell of a shock to them all. Time will tell, I hope.

        I sure hope you’re right Pointy, but with entrenched corruption like this, I wouldn’t count on anything ….

        “In 2001, Queensland’s Criminal Justice Commission heard evidence that organisers for the AWU (Australian Workers Union) faction in Brisbane had employed inducements and threats to persuade Young Labor activists to commit criminal offences, which involved getting fictitious names onto the electoral roll and stacking branches with members who had no right to vote. Party workers who refused to comply were told their careers were finished.

        The aim of all this was to increase the AWU vote in pre-selection battles, so it could put its people into positions of power.”

        Ludwig is the Don of Australian politics. The Labor Party is the political arm of the Union Movement. Nobody sitting in our Parliament as endorsed Labor MPs would dare to blow their noses without the Don’s sanction. He’s the king-maker.

        While the case for criminal prosecution of our PM for fraud is building by the day, it’s unlikely that Ludwig will ever be tumbled from office – his ‘organisation’ has plenty of dispensable ‘useful idiots’ who would take the fall for him.

        We live in hope of truth and justice prevailing. However, after 40 years of this Party Machine that has put five Prime Ministers into Office, we take nothing for granted.

    I live in Old North Wales so the US elections do not affect me directly but what I hear first hand from friends in California, Kansas, and Texas is that Obama is going to get caned. They could be completely wrong of course but they are all quite vehement about it (and politically a mixed bag). Perhaps the MSM have given a false impression of a close contest ?

    Me no know – Me Mungo – Mungo no know – Mungo merely pawn in game of life.
