Ok, first of all, I’m a Canadian who doesn’t really follow politics in general, let alone American politics. However, we live in an age where it’s virtually impossible not to be drawn into the drama of an American election year. (can anyone explain to me why this is a 2 year campaign?)
I just finished watching Donald Trump’s big announcement where he offered to write Barack Obama a cheque for $5 million dollars to donate to a charity of his choice if he’ll just release his college and passport applications for the world to see.
Now if you’ve followed this election campaign at all, you’ll likely be aware of the speculation that Obama never should have been eligible to run for president because of his citizenship. I don’t pretend to know all the details, but what I do know is that we live in a strange era where this kind of scenario is even possible.
I have a feeling that the results of this particular election more than others in history will be a catalyst for some major changes – no matter who ends up winning. I believe the people of the United States, and for that matter, the world have been sold a book of lies for far to long and it’s time to wake up.
I can’t say I agree with much of what comes out of Donald Trump’s mouth (although I can certainly respect his ability to believe in himself and create wealth through real estate – say what you like about how he did it – he still did it). What I am intrigued by is that he’s willing to take a controversial stand and ask for transparency. That’s something I would like to see of all politicians.
Let’s face it, the western political system is broken, and it’s time for an overhaul. Even if a candidate has all the right motivations for joining public office (and I’m sure most do at some point) the system has evolved to the point where big business, and special interest groups have the wheel. Money is driving the system, and it’s not even the government that controls the money.
Do yourself a favour and research the Federal Reserve, or simply banking. Is there a nation on the planet that isn’t controlled by a privately owned central bank today? I believe it’s time for a reset. Let’s return to a system that utilizes real money. Let’s return to a system designed to protect the people from big government, not the other way around.
While I have a hunch Donald Trump’s proposal will fall on deaf ears and not really lead to anything, I’d like to think it will at least cause people to do some of their own research. This isn’t an attempt to discredit Barack Obama, it is an encouragement to educate yourself about how the world works, and what you can do to protect yourself in challenging economic times.
