American Antiques, American Rebirth - Another Roosevelt Era Coming?

Jun 11, 2008
We watch historical moments when a woman of power and personal following has found herself sincerely urging her devoted followers to work to elect the first black man in American history to be their President, if Barack Obama defeats John McCain in the general election coming. Observers note that not since the electoral defeat of the Republicans during the midst of the Great Depression, has the opinion polls indicating such dismal approval ratings of a right wing convservative Republican Presidency as now.

Barack Obama brings the great hope of change, not only to America but to a worried world. John McCain has been seen generally to be supportive of the Bush policies, although distancing himself most recently. There has been such an outpouring of need, as eloquently stated by Hilary Clinton in her gracious speech in support of Barack, even to the frustrated boos of some. Hilary made the point that for any of her supporters to vote for McCain would be a denial of all they had worked to try to achieve, and civil wrongs they want changed.

The possibility looms high that this built up frustration of the American voters will create a sea change in American domestic, as well as foreign policy. The likelihood of a common universal health care system, as is in most of the civilized world, is much greater under a Democrat than under the leave things much as they are attiude of the right, and John McCain. Again, not since Roosevelt when human degradation had reached such lows, and a barrage of social security for those most in need began a proud tradition in America.

This social security safety net so proudly placed in position by Frank Roosevelt's Democrats has been allowed to unravel so extensively for tax cuts to the rich, America finds itself far behind most European and other western level of civilization nations. It is the shame of a great nation that America finds itself with more than 40 million people without medical attention. Hilary Clinton's touching example of the single mother holding three jobs and who cannot afford medical care for herself or her children.

Few civilized nations turn their back on so many of their own people as America in this way, and the need has become more than apparent. A likely Democratic Congress, Senate and President has the potential of seeing a renewal of social security network safety net tightening for those most in need, again. The Economist magazine estimated that a two percent tax increase on the two percent highest tax brackets could right the American budget. It could be that simple, yet right wing water muddying implies the Democrats need to tax those already struggling.

And, John, it ain't necessarily so. In fact, it is just not factual to imply that, as the right always does. America could again enjoy the prosperity of the Bill Clinton era, and his wise use of implied power, rather than the hasty use of it, as when he paraded the leaders of the mid east past hundreds of the mighiest fleet of aircraft bombers on earth at Akron. after seeing the power that America might feel itself required to use, all signatures were on the Akron Agreement.

We suspect also the bathrooms were quite busy after that raw roar of power not used, but wisely displayed, did occur. With such wiser tactical military use, funds could flow to do as Roosevelt and Eisenhower did, fund social equity and rebuild the road and communication systems to make a modern nation more efficient with its freeways, as had the Romans, to carry goods and troops quickly anywhere in the empire. The collapsing bridges and lungs of America need attention. The world does have a fever, and serious care is long overdue.
