As an American, I have witnessed many events in our nation's history. Some of them great like placing a man on the moon. Some of them were dark and shameful events.
No matter what happened, it is the people that make this nation great. Each looking to the future with optimism and looking to improve this nation for all.
The United States is a great and wonderful nation and her people are her best asset. As Americans, we need to stand together and let our voices be heard.
Although I haven't officially made my choice for the Republican Party Presidential candidate, I like what I hear from Herman Cain. Originally, I dismissed him and was looking at a couple of the other candidates. However, this 9-9-9 plan has struck a chord with me.
I believe that a president must have a sound financial strategy. I haven't heard much from the other candidates and, quite frankly, they leave me cold. If the American people are looking for a true outsider, I believe that Herman Cain may fit the bill perfectly.
When Obama was running for President, he claimed that he would bring hope and change to the people. I haven't seen much hope or change. My healthcare premiums have gone up by 25% over the past 2 years. Unemployment still remains around 9%. Housing prices and new housing are falling to record lows.
When I listen to President Obama, I hear the same things over and over. Instead of having a truly workable plan for unemployment, I hear the same thing again. Nothing has changed for me and I would probably have to say that most of the people I talk with on a daily basis.
I believe that we truly need an outsider and that we need to send people to Washington who care more about the nation than getting re-elected.
