ah..highlight that perceived a bit more. The fact alone, that people
worldwide cheer for obama should get u thinking. Those people read at
max. one article in some backwater town newspaper about Obamas goals
and politics. They cheer for the entertainer. ANd probably not even
that, but actually for the smart people organising the whole thing.
I watched his speech here in Germany. Was about the ,pst uninspired
thing i've seen in ages. No facts, no real critic, nothing concrete.
Just some whitewashed "yes you can (vote me)" trash, other politicians
before him threw up. I didn't hear a lot of change there, except for
the fact that he is black and has no experience.
I'd welcome change, but voters should realize that change means pain, a
lot of pain. And especially for the many minorities that voted him.
The change i'd welcome most would be a new electoral law. This,
especially in such times, should be about politics, and not some circus
to keep the masses fed and entertained. YOu shouldn't vote to go to some

The rest of the world is much more well-read than the citizens of the United States. Most
well-read citizens of the United States are forced to read foriegn news in order to learn
what is really going on in their own country, as the corporate media is a failure in
communicating the news, being more focused on promoting that which will maximize
their advertising income.
