Today`s post is going to be a little different from my posts of the past. There will no discussions about documentaries, it will simply be my take on the American election. I will get back to the business of discussing docs in my next post.
On behalf of the world I would like to thank the American people for making for making such a smart decision. The alternative(Mitt Romney) was very scary. Now Mr. Obama can get down to the business of trying to fix the economy, creating jobs, and stimulating investment in depressed areas of the country such as Cleveland ,Ohio. I always said that in order for Obama to win he would need the black, female and Latino votes and from what I have heard it is clear that he was able to accomplish that. Even though it was a close election the American people have chosen reason and logic over hype, fluff, flip flops, and lies.
The Republican party in my opinion is the dinosaur party. It`s core values and audience are stuck in the past. It`s belief system is based on convincing the bottom 99% that they will some how benefit if they support the business interests of the top 1% even though these groups have very little in common and more often than not have conflicting interests. In regards to the Republican party`s core audience it is mainly comprised of white males over the age of 60 which is one of slowest growing demographic groups in the country. America`s demographics are changing. The America of the future will be comprised of a growing Hispanic, black, and Asian population that will change the face and philosophy of the country. If the Republicans are unable to be more inclusive they will continue to lose presidential elections. They will also need to rely on facts to win people over. Waiting on big bogus announcements from Donald Trump will not win people over. Cheers to four more years.
