The 44th President of the U.S. of A.

November 10th, 2008

Between Obama and McCain, i rooted for Obama.

I am not for Mc Ain’t not only because his supporters hyped his being a POW war hero. The kind of hero who carpet-bombed civilian villages in Vietnam that killed thousands of innocent lives. I am for Barack Obama simply because I believed in the call, “Anybody but a Republican.” Of course, Obama being an African-American challenging a white dominated politics of the United States is an added value for my stand. His victory had surely sent shivers down the spine of the Grand Wizard and the whole Realm and Empire of the Ku Klux Klan, and of course its other derivatives and cousins – like maybe the NRA.

It is without doubt that Obama’s victory is something to be celebrated about. It was a culmination and pinnacle of a long history of struggle of African-Americans. Rosa Parks sat down in order for Martin Luther King, Jr to march; and Martin Luther King Jr. marched in order for Barack Obama to run…and ran he did and he won. Now the highest position of the land of the free and the home of the brave is held by an African-American. What more inspiration can one ask for.

But when euphoria subsides, reality seeps in. Barack Obama is now faced with a monumental task, especially that these tasks are coupled with high expectations drawn form his promise of effecting change that we need. He had shown the world that He Can win, now he must prove the world what He Can do.

I don’t care about how he would tax the US rich in order to feed the poorer section of the American population before they start shouting slogans like, “Eat the Rich!”. I am much awaiting for his policy positions on the US inovolvement in Iraq, Afghanistan and in the Philippines, and its continuing militarist foreign policy and relations all over the world.

What will become of Barack Obama being the 44th President of the United States of America remains to be seen, and the watch begins on his inauguration day on January 20, 2009.
