Since his arrival on the national scene in the 2004 senate race, Barack Obama has inspired thousands across the nation with his riveting speeches that has been compared to that of John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King and Robert F. Kennedy.
It is not surprising that people refer to him as the Obama-rama because of the glow that he projects when speaking to crowds. It’s this inspiration and passion that moves us and inspires us to hope for something better for America — to move us forward to a more diplomatic foreign policy; to a better health care system; to a presidency that brings change that we can believe in.
Over the past eight years, we have suffered from an administration that lacks sympathy for the little guy, that forgets about the middle class and that leaves students and the sick to fend for themselves.
American’s have suffered for too long in a world where banks are foreclosing on homes at an astonishing rate, putting students in an economy with a growing unemployment rate while carrying thousands of dollars of debt and leaving the terminally ill to fight the health care crisis on their own. We have suffered from a president who does not listen to the American people when they say they demand a change in foreign policy.
Barack Obama would bring needed change in the Democratic Party. He would listen to the American people.
His policies exude change and responsible change at that — getting America out of Iraq in a responsible way, ensuring health care to all Americans and bringing tax cuts back to the middle class. He has seen disparity; he has seen Americans shut out by the government.
Barack Obama has what it takes to bring change to this nation. Change desperately needed after eight years with broken domestic and foreign policies. It his inspiration and passion that moves us and inspires us to hope for something better for America. To move us forward to a more diplomatic foreign policy, to bring better health care to American’s and a policy that brings change that we can believe in.
