Let me just start this blog today saying that I am no political specialist but I do have to ask a few questions about what I am seeing going on over in the U.S. What is happening over there? I can’t help but think that one of the super powers of all time is beginning to show signs of cracking up.
Are the candidates over there really for the people? Are the people as crazy for blood, for the minorities, as it appears? Who really is this Trump fellow and where did his rise to power come from? What’s with the violence against each other down there? It is all very unsettling, isn’t it? The reporters are saying it is fascinating but it seems broadly over the top.
One thing is for sure, the race to the White House seems to be just that, a “Race”. Don’t hate me but I think having a coloured family in the “White” house has just about thrown the country into a state of frenzy that hasn’t been seen since the unglory days off the 50’s and 60’s. It is as though a majority of American has quietly hated the idea and now have the voice of Trump to display their own racial propaganda.
I really don’t know, and I’m just a guy being fed images and clips just like the rest of you. I do hope that the U.S can pull it together. We all count on them for the voice of reason for so many crisis and issues around the world. I’m afraid what the future of the free world will look like if that is lost?
I do wish them well because from my seat it’s looking rather grim. It is easier to choose fear but wouldn’t that be a win for the bad guys? I can’t help hearing the words from a song the late Marvin Gaye song too beautifully “What’s going on?”
