What I desire from a re-election

I write the post in response to a question put to me on Twitter. There are some things for which 140 characters are not enough. I was asked what I expect from President Obama's re-election. In truth, I expect nothing if Congress continues to be made up of those who seek nothing more than to discredit the President at the expense of the American people. President Obama showed to me, during his first term, his understanding of the desires of the American people. I am working with others across the United States to get out the vote to change Congress from those owned by the multinational corporations to those who desire to do what is best for the people of America.




Currently the President seems to stand alone in desiring to do what is best for Americans. I am not saying he walks on water. There are several executive orders from the Bush Administration that on the civil liberties of Americans which the President have not rescinded. The President's silence on laws that prohibit the rights of people to assemble peacefully for protest (Occupy) is troubling. However, a majority of the laws negatively impacting the quality of life of Americans are created in Congress.



We as Americans must seek out and obtain an education in American Civics. We have expectations of the president that should be held for Congress. Until we remove from office those who are obstructing our forward progress, we will have more of the same.

I am a lover of Fantasy and Science Fiction since childhood. What I have noted over the years is a common theme, humans(White people) have changed the environment to the point of either some horrifying human mutation or some climate apocalypse.  I often wonder why in these writings we don't see an evolution that leads to world peace.  Start Trek is one of the few that shows the possibility for humans after we  learn to work for peace not war.  However,  even Star Trek fails to accur…
