I recently made a flippant request on Twitter. I asked for a wealthy Campaign Manager so that I might compete in the forthcoming Presidential Elections in America, but was is it so flippant or disguised as a plea for more radical thinking.
In the majority of free thinking minds America is still the most powerful and influential nation in this world even allowing for the facts that stare us all in the face. Russia has perhaps faded from the nuclear stage but it has immense persuasion in the emerging markets of China, India and Brazil, but it is to America that all the eyes of Europe, both continents of North and South of the States and those of all the English language speaking countries turn to for salvation and protection. In this regard their Government have as you say at baseball, “stepped up to the plate,” albeit as could be said with a vested interest but is not their interest, are own.
Sure their military have made mistakes and, with hindsight, often tactical decisions could be questioned but who was there in numbers bravely facing death. We of course were and why was that; because our leaders recognized that shared interest.
America has the infrastructure, the creativity and the drive from a vast diverse population to again save us from the financial crisis which people of every nation now suffer, or will, if we don’t all pull together. If I’m right then everyone with a desire to see a radical change away from big business and corporation politics dictating the path forward needs to have a say in that Countries elections. America’s influence affects all of us, not only where I’ve mentioned but with its educational policies, commercial and welfare ideals. The old adage of ‘if America sneezes we all catch a cold’ is still relevant worldwide.
That thought lead me to that worthless appeal I made but nonetheless one day this world of ours will need one leader. Not a man that allows self-interest to be his highest dictum nor that of his advisors, but a trusted man of the highest principles. Yesterday there were explosions of nuclear proportions on the Sun that threatened universal communications, suppose it was worse. A meteorite of a gigantic size heading this way. Can you imagine the thoughts in the so-called leaders around the world at present; Let me speculate.
“Well, no Mr President if we fire first and we only succeed in denting it slightly, then we will make it easy for the rest and they will take the glory.”
“Well, no Mr Chairman if we fire first and we only succeed in denting it slightly, then we will make it easy for the rest and they will take the glory.
“Well, no Mr Premier if we fire first and we only succeed in denting it slightly, then we will make it easy for the rest and they will take the glory.I didn’t mention our own Prime Minister, I wonder why?
Hopefully I will not, nor any of my family, be here to see that apocalyptic day unless of course that premonition concerning the twelfth of the twelfth comes about and I’m still hanging on, but one day it may. Would you in all honesty want your destiny resting in the hands of any of todays leaders.
