“NOW is the time for all good citizens to come to the aid of the country.” Before it falls apart or makes any more enemies.
When you are casting your vote this November, remember what Great and Envied Americans were. You need a leader this time who has policies so he can effect to repair domestic needs and dealing fairly with our allies. John Edwards has such a domestic policy (read it for yourself on his website). See also that he will effect a program which will repair our own great works of art and commerce before there are more bridges falling into troubled waters.
We need a president who is level-headed with a good history of action in the Senate or Congress: who will not churlishly cast aside treaties entered into by previous leaders because he didn’t believe in their necessity at the time of their promulgation. We need a president who has a good track record in dealing with the everyday problems of running one of the biggest countries in the world.
We need someone who is foresighted, since we have also been plundering our own planet until it’s sliding down into an abyss from which we will not be able to save ourselves without immediate and honest efforts to reduce the the grave problems of pollution. And we don’t have anywhere else to go to!
We need a huge amount of repair to restore the battered Middle Class which is the support of any government and has been bereft of many normal resources and aids, not the least of which is hospital care and medical advice as and when required. We need a strong enough leader to endure the calumny and dispute that will arise for such far-reaching alterations. But America has already abandoned many of the once shining values we should hold dear, and allowed others to be disregarded.
John Edwards has spoken broadly about our national and international problems, and has the fortitude and personality to see his programs not only begun, but rectifying the immense problems anyone will face on taking up the leadership of America. He is definitely my choice for president and I have no political axe to grind — only to see America strong, determined and united, and as proud of everything she does as she used to be.
NOW is the time for all good men and women to come to the aid of their country.
