From South Africa

Many of us hope and hold thumbs that American voters will elect an American as President of America next time round.

 We don’t need another foreigner for World President; get one of your own for your country and the World will be happy with y’all.

 Rick Perry sounds about right to me.

    Well said Sir Ike. No more Kenyans.

      Hi Lady BD

      Well, [smile] not from that particular family for sure. I still can’t fathom how he really got elected. Can’t the people see a con artist?

    Obviously not, Ike. I do not doubt that he was born in Hawai’i, but I doubt that he actually gives a flying rodent’s posterior about the USA. His loyalties belong more to America’s enemies than itself or its friends.

      Hi Christopher

      Obama is not the problem in America; my occasional references to his ancestry is merely philosophical and in jest. Nobody will in any event ever know for sure, but even that is not the problem.

      What is the problem is that nowhere, but nowhere or anywhere amongst the leading Nations of the World would someone be elected, or tolerated for long if elected, like Obama, to use his country as his personal toy. The ultimate responsibility for that rests on the voters that put him there; and that frightens me. America cannot recover or once more progress with that kind of voter having the final say.

      Perhaps we will see a World, though the thought is anathema to “free people” where we will have to look at Russia and China for stability in governance. I don’t share the fears of an Armageddon as some interpret the meaning of the word; for me the American or UK fear of the Muslim is merely a distraction from the truth.

      Voters must learn to vote for and insist on responsible governance, or pay the price for it. The unfortunate point of America as far as this goes is that what they do will rub off on the smaller nations …. erm …. hmm … yes, unless Russia and China and a few smaller ones will shoulder the burden and make America irrelevant, the latter which is rapidly becoming more of a possibility than what Americans will admit. Oh Yes, and we have Australia out there way down the Southern end of the World to back us up if it comes to chaos.

      So what have you got in your degree now? Are you going into the employment market? Are you going to stay in America [where you are now is much too close to Hollywood] or are you maybe going to Europe?

    I could well end up going to graduate school, perhaps in the Midwest, before entering the labour market. I’m concerned with what’s going on in Europe. It seems as if the EU is like a parasite that has grown too large for its host and is killing it. I have some job possibilities in Brazil, Taiwan, China, South Korea, and Japan, though. My degree is in history. True, not the hottest field, but it’s a respectable degree and since I have been able to hold my own in one of the most radical left-wing universities in the USA, I should be able to survive elsewhere.

    China has no interest in the USA becoming irrelevant. They’re economy is too dependent on it. The two countries have become like an old couple that hates each other but realises that it can’t live apart, either as everything they have has become so deeply entwined with the other. China also lacks the ambition to be the world’s policeman. They are not traditionally an aggressive power and prefer regional hegemony over global dominance and its obligations. Russia is simply so backwards economically that they can’t afford to irritate people too much. While the USA does not need to be assertive with China and Russia, it’s all a show. Much like the hysteria over Muslims, it’s a distraction fanned on by the media, to distract people from the social problems wrought by the collapse of culture and morality in the past 50 years.

      I am pleased with your first paragraph, including the references to the countries that you mention; there is an entire adulthood beckoning and I am sure with your philosophies that you will make the best use of it.

      Regarding your second main paragraph I need to explain that when I refer to stability or the absence of it I refer to the behavior of people visible in the streets and the job market; sometimes called “law and order” by some and by me. You refer to “social problems wrought by the collapse of culture and morality in the past 50 years” and that describes better what I mean when I say that Russia and China may get us through it.

      Fair enough; you describe China truly well but never forget the ability of “New” China Capitalism. Those guys work hard and don’t play games; they are also astute enough in business and fully understand the risks in their “dollar links” with America. Christopher, hardly a day passes here without some mention of China acquiring another hefty piece of fixed property in Africa; and you know what they use to pay for it? Cash in all their excess dollars. Don’t underestimate China. China is separating herself from America.

      Of course “China also lacks the ambition to be the world’s policeman.” I did not refer to or suggested any concrete efforts to make America irrelevant and China or Russia saying “there, we told you we would do it.”

      Perhaps I should say that America will become irrelevant without the aid of these two because Americans seem driven by obsessions and their moral vacuum is not helping. Sure, for heaven’s sake, I don’t mean all Americans, but a good half are not only morally immoral but also high on a memories of some vague past greatness that they never had; half of Americans are morally useless people, and not capable of feeding themselves. Their banking system is rotten to the core; dollar notes cost more to print than it’s worth. I don’t think you can say all that of Russia or China.

      But let’s keep in touch.
