 Ladies and Gentleman, Welcome to the 2012 Presidential Election.

The 2012 United States Presidential election is “Jeopardy Gone Wrong.”  Contestants on Jeopardy, along with the host, Alex Trebek, can and have displayed political knowledge, global awareness. ethics, morals and diverse intellect. Unlike the Governors, Senators, Representatives, and various third party and independent challengers half-heartedly attempting to replace current President of the United States, Barack Obama.


The election of a President is a milestone.  It defines mores, economy, social order of a nation, in turn, affecting other nations.


The Choices:


ONE:  Re-elect Barack Obama: A “Democrat”, along with his cabinet, all partially responsible for national and global madness. Hold hope that in four years the following occur: economy improves, jobs increase, health care is provided, funding cuts for education and art cease, wars end, all troops are sent home, occupations in other nations halted, and that citizens of America [and the world] gain trust in the American government, as well as its citizens.


TWO:  Play “Pin the tail on the donkey regarding the “Republicans” running against Obama. The candidates as of January 8, 2011 at 3:49 am [the players keep changing] include: Speaker of the House: Newt Gingrich / Former Ambassador to China, Former Governor of Utah: John Huntsman / U.S. Representative: Ron Paul [Texas] / Governor of Texas: Rick Perry /  Former Governor of Massachusetts: Mitt Romney / Former Senator of Pennsylvania: Rick Santorum.


THREE:  Do Not Vote. Many citizens may choose this option. Although many died for each amendment, one does have the right.



Regardless, there is still time, hope. Change is ever possible.



It will be the most difficult vote of my life.
