A 2nd term president can produce real change.

Filed under: General Discussion — bobfunke @ 2:26

It is not hard to imagine that during the 2nd term of Obama, that the wars will finally end, there will be a drastic shift in funding away from the military and we will begin to prosper once again.

The rub is, it’s imagination. So far, all we’ve seen is an escalation in spending on war and it’s consequences. I can’t see Obama doing a 180  and changing from the current course, he’s a corporatist, well in the pockets of the war industry. Philosophically, he’s as bad as bush as far the use of armed force goes, in fact, he may actually be worse since he does not appear to realize that the lessons he should have learned from the previous administration just plain didn’t sink in.

Creating enemies, aiding and abetting more enemies as opposed to building lasting alliances around the globe will do little more than enhance deeper divisions in already tenuous situations.

The only thing we have is pressure congresscritters and Obama to do the right thing and end the violence around the world where we are engaged and damn sure don’t get involved in other conflicts. All of this death and destruction has done little more than add riches to arms producers, we’ve become the purveyors of death such as the world has never seen, and wiped out our economy while doing it.

Imagine a world without war…I can, but I don’t think Obama is capable.
