Presidential Election Does It Matter????
I understand it does matter to an extent; but how much in todays world?
With companies today having their home office in podunk Oklahoma, their product manufactured in China/Korea/Japan and their tech support located in India/UAE/Pakistan; does our presidential election really mean a whole lot??
It seems to me the impact of the corporation today means alot more than the "leader" of one country.
As I watch the debates between the canidates, all they can do is bicker abuot how crappy the other canidate is; I am bored, and appaled at how two adults can whine an complain about the other. It bothers me that major TV shows such as SNL can mock a possible future leader of our country (Palin) and all we do is laugh and watch it on youtube 1xxxxxxxxx times; what message does it send to the voters, the uneducated and the rest of the world?????
I belive that there are too many issues in todays world for one person (USA president/any leader) to comprehend, understand, have a solution for. I mean come on we have everything from issues with drugs, immigration, abortion, terrorist, taxes, energy, welfare, medicare, huge financial crisis, debts to major "enemies." Can 1 person comprehend handle all these issues??? If our president comes up with an idea the senate and or the house can shoot it down, mix that up any way you like; gotta love checks and balances.
Like I said before I belive our country needs a leader, but how much "pull" does he have in todays world. I know where I live I have not been affected at all be the down turn in the economy; my local economy is not dependent on major car manufatures like Detroit, and there are no major financial institutions here. Kansas seems to be doing just fine, and I belive we will prevail becuse our local economy is greatly diversified.
I know my thoughts are random, and I may not make alot of sence, but I do read all the political comments on here; there are quite a few smart people on both sides of the fence on this board. So all a ask is "do I sound like an idiot or do I bring up logical questions?"
Flame suit on! LOL
