Update 30-08: So Barack Obama knows his opponents in the race to the White House. Ok, she isn't 83 as i guessed before, but the 44 year old Sarah Palin is the running mate of John McCain.
And guess what? She thinks the best solution for the energy problems of the USA is in her homestate Alaska. Lots of oil and other recources in the ground. The most promising opportunities to solve the energyproblems are in Alaska. Great!! Destroy nature, go-on with oil-drilling, pump-up as much as possible and don't worry about climate.
And guess again? Her husband works for BP. Unbelievable. Furthermore Sarah likes hunting and of course she is a proud member of the National Rifle Association. Always comfartable when she should visit all war locations where American soldiers doing their duty. Their duty?? For what? To secure oil and gas till the USA are ready to exploitate the Alaska resources.
So can we expect any change from McCain-Palin? I don't think so. What do you think about this?
Update 29-08: Yesterday Barack Obama officially accepted the nominee at the Democratic Convention. Al Gore speeched also yesterday and told agian why he is supporting Barack Obama. You can read his full speech here. Added new videos with the most important speakers at the Democratic National Convention.
Now Barack Obama is officially choosen as the Democratic candidate for the elections on Novembre 4th for the next president of the USA it is time to look to the candidates.
Americans can choose for Barack Obama and Joe Biden (Democrats), John McCain and ?? ( i expect a 83 year old lady), Bob Barr and Root, Cynthia McKinney and Clemente and there is also again mister Ralp Nader and Gonzalez. May be there are others, but i think my list is complete.
So Americans have some choice you could say. But is there really a choice? On lots of issues there is not much difference in the view of the candidates. I look only to Obama and McCain, because the other candidates can never win the election and they will never be the next president of the usa. That is clear in my opinion.
Why should Barack Obama be the next President of the USA. In my opinion it is clear that we need a change. We really need a change on a lot of issues. Albert Einstein knew that already a long time ago: 'Today's problems cannot be solved if we still think the way we thought when we created them'
Of course Einstein is right and that is the main reason why i believe that we really need a change and the only serious candidate to bring that change is Barack Obama. Or do you expect that a 72 years old men like John McCain is coming with new idea's, new solutions, an other way of thinking. No, you're kidding.
Barack Obama is on the right way. Ok, may be he is not so expierenced as McCain but he is much younger, in better condition and he has support from those who started to think in a different way, looking for real solutions for the biggest problems we have ever had in the world.
Wars we had before and we have still wars that kill many people, mostly innocent people. A war is ridiculous, it is stupid and there are never winners, only losers after the war is ended. Most wars go about money, about oil or about religion. All those issues are not important enough for a war. But the leaders of the world still fight with each other.
Instead of fighting about not that important issues they should work together on the biggest problem we ever had. The climate problem, i'm talking about and the energy problems in the world are just a part of that.
Barack Obama has the support of Al Gore, you know from an Unconvienent Truth and Bill Clinton with his own Climate Initiative. Both of them are convinced from our problems. Both of them are looking for other solutions than just pump up more oil. Drilling to oil before the coast of the USA is a bad idea. Looking for recources on the North Pole or on Antartica is also no solution. It is just going on in the same way.
No, we need a worldwide change, an other approach of the issues that really make the difference in the world. Barack Obama is in my opinion the best choice. He is the man that can make a real change. The world is at the moment on a lot of issues depending on the USA, but the country is in fact bankrupt. Nicely done by the Bush Family. And where did al that money go to? War, war, war.
May be it is time to see that a war is no solution and you know that John McCain already said that the war can go on for the next 100 years. As long as neccessairy to leave the war as a winner. Sorry mister McCain, that will not happen, because there is never a winner of any war, unless you forget all people (soldiers and civilians) who died in that war. For what? For oil? For nothing?
So the USA need Barack Obama for a change and the world need the USA for a change. The climate problems are a litter bigger than the wars in the world. Wars stops mostly by some borders and it is always far from home. We hear about it, we see about it, but we are not in that war, unless you're a soldier.
Climate problems have no borders. Carbon dioxide is in the air and it goes everywhere. Climate is changing fast. We are getting more and more extreme weather. Extreme weather will lead to more problems, deaths, damage and so on. What we need is a worldwide change and the USA should lead the way and as far as i can see it should be Barack Obama to be the next President of the USA.
What do you think??
