Well, people who are older than 14 might understand that you cannot fix such a global economic mess in four years. It took far longer to get us there and even the most aggressive Republican plan takes longer than ten years to fix things. Just curious, how would YOU fix things?
Or can't they see past his color? I did a mini-self-survey befire the election at school and asked who they would vote for and why. The answer? The president because he is the first president of that color. I'm not racial in any way, in fact I have a friend of that color and we are all equal in the eyes of the Lord, but this is ridiculous.
So, you have A
friend of "that color"? How progressive. In fact, the color issue has worked as much against him as for him. For those who are proud of this county's ability to progress out of the dark ages (quite the pun), there are just as many who looked suspiciously at the color issue. He has received more threats than any other president.
We as a nation need to wake up and smell the daisies. He burned the American flag when he was younger. Did he know he would be president? No, but is that really an excuse? |

Many people do things as kids they are not proud of as adults. I would almost hazard a guess that even you may have done a few things that you wouldn't want the world to scrutinize too closely. We all have. Youth can be a certain excuse.
One thing I CAN commend you for. You are aware. It is great when young people look at the world and start analyzing the ills. It is the beginning of, hopefully, being one of the cure instead of one of the problems. I will challenge you, however, to always try to see both sides
of an argument before you take a solid stance. It gives you perspective.
