I like Barack Obama and I don’t like Mitt Romney. But I see America in crisis right now with debt swelling, a war continuing, and our wealth in decline. I can’t help but respect Romney’s business acumen. I can’t deny that, from a strictly business point of view, he is more qualified to tackle the turnaround that is needed in the United States. The economy is the most essential issue because fixing the business of America creates so many opportunities to fix other problems.
But Romney still has yet to earn my vote because as compelling as his business skills are, there is a win/win scenario that could really propel America’s future. Romney could extend an olive branch to all of America by offering to do what Jack Kennedy did and donate his salary to charity. This would be a first step to heal the divide between the parties but there are other steps.
My affinity for Barack Obama comes, not from his politics, but because of his compassion for the people of the world. His connection to foreign governments, through his birth, is a strength, not a weakness. He has previous ties to Kenya, Indonesia, and Pakistan. He is well thought of in many other Middle Eastern Countries that makes him uniquely qualified to help America in our quest to regain our wealth and prosperity. There is no other person with the unique qualifications to help America reconcile with Islam to promote PEACE. In many circles I am known as the PEACE DUDE and I have a number of articles and books that discuss the proposition of WORLD PEACE. Obama could help us bring the parties to the table for an unprecedented PEACE TREATY with all of the nations of Islam including Iran. If we asked him to focus on it I am quite sure he could persuade them to cease their pursuit of nuclear weapons… and we should get him to promise us during the debates that he will facilitate this soon after the election even if he loses.
Actually what I envision is the American People promoting Obama to Special United Nations Peace Envoy by voting, in November, for Romney. If Mitt would make a commitment to America that he would appoint Obama in his cabinet to help us usher in an era of PEACE, I would vote for Romney. Think about America’s position. We are in debt beyond anything we have ever experienced or has ever been experienced by any nation on the planet. If we were able to promote peace with Islam we would be able to cut the spending for our involvement in Afghanistan as well as the rest of the Middle East to thereby reduce our deficits. Combine that with changes that Romney would initiate by employing his toughness/turnaround tactics and we have the perfect situation for America to make real strides in the coming four years.
I don’t have to like a man to vote for him but the toughness I find …
