A Time For Change

On January 3rd, 2008 in the great state of Iowa the sounds of change could be heard, carried on the backs of blades of wind into the hearts and minds of the entire United States of America, and throughout the World. The sounds echoed the message – “NOW, IT IS TIME FOR CHANGE.”

On this day in history Barack Hussein Obama won the first many battle in the war of U.S. presidential politics. He won the Iowa Caucuses. Next up, the New Hampshire Primary – January 8th, 2007. This moment cannot be underscored enough. As the United States bleeds from 8 years of Bush battering, it is a wonder that we can have any hope at all. The Bush administration has left a great nation a shadow of its former self – A once beautiful statue that has been made to look an ugly stump. The savior we are hoping for must come with this next election.

My language may seem drastic, metaphorical, or simply over-exaggerated, but that is the situation in the United States. Bush has done little to raise confidence, even among his own Republican base. When die hard Republicans are running for the hills and supporting the Democrats, I have to ask myself, “Is Judgment Day coming?”

Now is the time to pay attention, for the next few months will determine the future of this great nation.

For some good reporting on the U.S. Presidential Race, check out these websites – http://www.nytimes.com/pages/politics/index.html, and http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/3032553/. The New York Times has some really good opinion articles that can give some delicacy to this moment, while MSNBC hits you with great facts and figures, and shows you the process for expert angles. There will be so many stories coming out in the ensuing months of campaigning. Now we will see what the candidates are made of. Stay informed.
