I think this is going to be an election that chooses between the past and the future, a paradigm shift like we saw in 1960 as we moved from one generation to the next.

Environmentally I see a push to Alternative Fuels for transportation at a quicker pace. A move to more environmentally sound building practices and an energy policy that will move our power grid toward the next generation. I think most of that will be Corporate rather than Government.

Foreign Policy would be one of the best opportunities for this country. Much of the world is awaiting a chance to move back to previous relationships with America, ready to rebuild coalitions and reinstitute long standing commitments. No more cowboy politics.

The Economy is going to be tricky as it is an inherited problem. The problem only has so many solutions no matter who is in office. I think more thorough regulation will be in place to insure this does not happen again would be a good thing. Also putative actions against those who failed might be in order with an Obama Administration.

Iraq will have a different face in the mid time [2-4 year period] as more troops will be home and fewer will be garrisoned in country. In the short time, it will be Stars call on strength.

Security of the country will change as we rebuild Foreign Policy relationships and redevelop law enforcement methodology to combat terrorism.

I think we will be tested within the first year of an Obama term [or McCain term for that matter]

Health Care interests will start to manifest themselves as that package works itself through the system. The four current proposals will finally gel and at some point in the first 18 months Americans will finally not have to worry about whether they can take their kids to the doctor or whether they can get that problem addressed that has been bothering them for years. And all the myths will finally be dispelled [on both sides].

It will not be magic and it will not be the be all and end all of administrations. There will be stumbles and there will be errors, just like every other administration in American History.

But as I aim toward those retirement years I feel very heartened to see a new generation starting to take the reins and look forward into the future instead of always looking into the ideas of the past.

Let's see, the last three Republican jacked our National Debt by $9 Trillion of its $10 Trillion and you complain about Democrats and taxes. At least they put it on the table instead of charging it for future generations. What kind of irresponsible BS is that? Can't even work within a budget. Nice. What other management skills CAN'T Republicans execute? Just so we will know?

And nice bumper sticker philosophy. Somehow it fits.

Let me ask you, if Col. Sanders had been elected president in 2000, and fried chicken now sold for $20 per piece, would you be suspicious?

And middle class Americans voting Republican is like the hordes of assholes that show up at American Idol tryouts without any talent. You have to be stinking rich to afford to be a Republican - I know only one person who is technically rich enough to be Republican - but somehow the hordes of people who vote that way live under some illusion that if they vote Republican maybe they might get rich like those morons who go to American Idol tryouts and figure they might make it without talent. Rich people don't want there to be more rich people, they want more poor people. It takes a lot of poor people to make a rich person and rich, greedy bastards don't want to share their pools of poor people. So they go about making poor people. Like screwing around with money supplies/credit so they can acquire other's wealth at discount rates.

Someone wake America the fuck up! Jim
