Why Should Voters Support Obama and Ought for a Black President?

Written By David D'Angelo on Wednesday, February 6, 2008 | 2/06/2008

I am not an American voter nor a US Citizen but personally I prefer Barrack Obama over Hilary Clinton to win the Democratic nomination and over the US elections come November.

Why should US voters prefer Obama over Clinton? The answer is quite simple because the American people deserves change. They deserve a new leadership under a president that can unite the American people and make vital changes to the most powerful country in the world.

Voters should prefer Obama because "YES WE CAN"... "YES YOU CAN".. "AMERICA CAN CHANGE"

A president that supports the campaign on climate change and cares for the environment is the most deserving candidate to lead a nation that was lead at present by someone who ignores it.

Obama has taken the stance that global warming is human-caused, and that it must be addressed. He has a record of supporting environmentally friendly bills.

"The issue of climate change is one that we ignore at our own peril. There may still be disputes about exactly how much is naturally occurring, but what we can be scientifically certain of is that our continued use of fossil fuels is pushing us to a point of no return. And unless we free ourselves from a dependence on these fossil fuels and chart a new course on energy in this country, we are condemning future generations to global catastrophe.," Obama says.

He has pledged to cut greenhouse gas emissions 80% below 1990 levels by 2050 by creating a market-based cap-and-trade system. Obama also has plans for improving air and water quality through reduced pollution levels.

The United States needs someone who respects other nations. A change in the current foreign policy is therefore needs and Obama is the person most capable of doing that. Yes American Can! We need a Revolution to Change! A Peaceful revolution!


His first major speech on foreign policy was delivered on April 23, 2007 to the Chicago Council on Global Affairs. He identified the problems the current foreign policy has caused, and the five ways America can lead again, focused on "common security", "common humanity", and remaining "a beacon of freedom and justice for the world":

* "Bringing a responsible end" to the war in Iraq and refocusing on the broader region.
* "Building the first truly 21st century military and showing wisdom in how we deploy it."
* "Marshalling a global effort" to secure, destroy, and stop the spread of weapons of mass destruction.
* "Rebuild and construct the alliances and partnerships necessary to meet common challenges and confront common threats," including climate change.
* "Invest in our common humanity" through foreign aid and supporting the "pillars of a sustainable democracy – a strong legislature, an independent judiciary, the rule of law, a vibrant civil society, a free press, and an honest police force."

Obama is a candidate that is of a rare kind. He transcend beyond race and his own party. He is a unification force in todays America.


Below is the Lyrics of the Obama for President 2008 Anthmen, "Yes We Can"

Lyrics:

It was a creed written into the founding documents that declared the destiny of a nation.

Yes we can.

It was whispered by slaves and abolitionists as they blazed a trail toward freedom.

Yes we can.

It was sung by immigrants as they struck out from distant shores and pioneers who pushed westward against an unforgiving wilderness.

Yes we can.

It was the call of workers who organized; women who reached for the ballots; a President who chose the moon as our new frontier; and a King who took us to the mountaintop and pointed the way to the Promised Land.

Yes we can to justice and equality.

Yes we can to opportunity and prosperity.

Yes we can heal this nation.

Yes we can repair this world.

Yes we can.

We know the battle ahead will be long, but always remember that no matter what obstacles stand in our way, nothing can stand in the way of the power of millions of voices calling for change.

We have been told we cannot do this by a chorus of cynics...they will only grow louder and more dissonant ........... We've been asked to pause for a reality check. We've been warned against offering the people of this nation false hope.

But in the unlikely story that is America, there has never been anything false about hope.

Now the hopes of the little girl who goes to a crumbling school in Dillon are the same as the dreams of the boy who learns on the streets of LA; we will remember that there is something happening in America; that we are not as divided as our politics suggests; that we are one people; we are one nation; and together, we will begin the next great chapter in the American story with three words that will ring from coast to coast; from sea to shining sea --

Yes. We. Can.
