On July 11th U.S. President Barack H. Obama made a speech to people in Accra, Ghana. Read his words and ask yourself why hasn’t he made that same speech here in America? All of us should challange him to do so.
Here are a few of the excerpts that really caught our attention.
“It is easy to point fingers, and to pin the blame for these problems on others.” (How does President treat the Bush Administration?)
“...it was partly tribalism and patronage ... and we know that this kind of corruption is a daily fact of life for far too many.” (Does the Democratic Party, it’s beholding stance to Feminism, Unions, or simply ‘Chicago Politics’ come to mind?)
"Development depends upon good governance। That is the ingredient which has been missing in far too many places, for far too long. That is the change that can unlock potential. And that is a responsibility that can only be met by..." (Americans).
“Repression many forms, and too many nations are plagued by problems that condemn their people to poverty। No country is going to create wealth if its leaders exploit the economy to enrich themselves, or police can be bought off... No person wants to live in a society where the rule of law gives way to the rule of brutality and bribery. That is not democracy, that is tyranny, and now is the time for it to end." (Whether handling the banking or automotive industries, or with state’s rights or a variety of other issues, in the brief term of the Obama Administration there have been repeated reports of ‘strong-arming’ others, using extortion and manipulation to achieve their agenda.)
“Yet because of incentives - often provided by donor nations - many... doctors and nurses understandably go overseas”. (If doctors in America can not earn a proper living because of government control and mandated health care, will many simply turn to jobs in research?)
(America) “...is not the crude caricature of a continent at war। But for far too many॥, conflict is a part of life, as constant as the sun. There are wars over land and wars over resources. And it is still far too easy for those without conscience to manipulate whole communities into fighting among...” (themselves). Does this remind you of Liberals vs. Conservatives as America’s traditions, mores and personal rights are hyjacked by political minorities masquerading as Environmentalists, Feminists and Gay “Rights” advocates.
If all these ideas are important for a foreign country, its popluation and society, isn’t the same true here in America?
It’s time for LEADERSHIP from a President in which he quells the agenda of an out-of-control Pelosi Congress, special interest groups who want to “collect” on campaign support and a wide variety of the ‘power and control hungry’ who -- without question -- are destroying America.
At the rate we are going the American economy and the proud, productive American society will be a footnote in history long before natural resources or the air we breathe will be exhausted.
