Why has America failed in the role of leading freedom across the world?
Why has America lost the ability to lead nations?
Why has America stopped being the beacon of hope and freedom?
The leadership in America has no clue as to why it has failed in the three questions above. The leadership in America is truly shocked that the population of the world simply does not believe them and this is the first time in recent history that American leadership has been questioned and mocked.
The main reason why American leadership has failed, is solely due to the efforts of the citizens of the United States. In the United States we have free elections and it is not difficult to find your local polling place to vote. The issue is that the American citizens vote for politicians who will tell the citizens what they want to hear.
Americans want to hear they are right, even when they are dead wrong. Americans want to hear that they are not to blame for anything. Americans want everything cheaper, better, smarter, faster, without the concern of what that is going to cost.
So if we need to have products made in countries that use prison labor to keep the product cheap, it is Okey Dokey Pokey, because Americans must have things cheaper. It does not matter what international laws are broken, what the cost is to human kind, if it can be done 10 cents cheaper, then do it. If it costs American jobs to bad, because damn it, why should the American citizen pay an extra 50 cents for a product.
The same issue goes for the environment, if we could get products 40% cheaper, but it would cause endless environmental issues, too bad, screw the planet, screw you and you tree hugger hippies. We need that 40% savings, so we can buy more shit that we really do not need.
You want the American citizens taxes to go up so we can educate children better! The fact that these kids today are lucky if they know when to actually get out of the rain, should not concern you. Even worse, most of these kids could not pass a 6th grade test given 100 years ago.
If the United States of America get into a war of looking shit up or gaming on the internet we will win that war hands down, but actually knowing Science, Math, Biology, Chemistry, History, fellow Americans you are shit out of luck.
A number of sites and news services had an issue when Vladimir Putin, president of Russia, states the following in a New York Times OP-ED article .
My working and personal relationship with President Obama is marked by growing trust. I appreciate this. I carefully studied his address to the nation on Tuesday. And I would rather disagree with a case he made on American exceptionalism, stating that the United States’ policy is “what makes America different. It’s what makes us exceptional.” It is extremely dangerous to encourage people to see themselves as exceptional, whatever the motivation. There are big countries and small countries, rich and poor, those with long democratic traditions and those still finding their way to democracy. Their policies differ, too. We are all different, but when we ask for the Lord’s blessings, we must not forget that God created us equal.
You want to know why this quote pissed off a bunch of people, it is a cold hard truth. Americans are not accustomed to hearing the cold hard truth. Sadly, we are not exceptional, if anything America has become mediocre. What you see from Vladimir Putin is true leadership and it is something Americans are not going to see for some time to come.
We will have freely elected, two presidents, a total of 16 years, who have failed America as a nation and as a people.
They have dishonored our nation with lies, greed, and deceit:
- The Patriot Act is and will always be, an unconstitutional law. Allowing it to exist while you are president says everything that needs to be said about your ability to lead America and honoring the tradition of being an American.
- Knowingly lie to the American people so you can enter into a war for your own purposes.
- Knowingly fanning the flames of hate in the Arab world and creating a larger Islamist network.
- Knowingly spy on each and every American citizen and passing that information onto any nation that they deemed fit.
- Knowingly abandon citizens for the benefit of corporation and politicians to make an extra Billion or two on the balance sheet.
America needs real leadership and that is not going to happen until the 2014 and 2016 elections. We have to take these elections seriously and we need to vote our politicians who honor the lies, greed and deceit over our American citizens.
Strive to do more instead of fighting for your right to do nothing.
