Two opposing forces
Perhaps it is politicians out of touch with what the people want? I am starting to think that the difference between good or mediocre politicians and great leaders is their intuitive touch with their public and constituents.
Trump and Obama
Are two complete opposites with some common ground that nobody could disagree with:
- love of family
- love of country
- integrity of words
- commitment to commitments
Yet two areas they are on opposing views as the north is to the south, east to the west, on their vision for North America.
Whereas Obama's dedication to the environment may be his greatest legacy. He also had commitment to the safety of people. Recognizing through his real life experience, that anyone, regardless of genetics, history, paternity, color, race or beliefs, can grow and learn. Stretch and reach his goals of leading what was once the most powerful nation in the world, to grab the baton of legends like Roosevelt, Kennedy, Lincoln or Washington were born. Men of courage facing almost insurmountable odds, are reveled by history to which today's children and generations before or after to be learned from.
The commonality among the weakest links are not any less embarrassing for its citizens when it hits them hard, in their pride, love of country, and tenacity to carry on, despite everything. Those are things that resonate with me when I think of the United States of America.
I wrote about them imploding back a few years ago. I didn't really comment editorial on goings on in the world, but I have a few times. Prophecy or deep understanding with perception on how to bundle the facts into predictions or road being traveled.
My husband and I had this very hearty debate not twenty minutes ago. These really cool discussions burst out of the folds of our daily living where one of us makes a comment on the state of the world based on current events. In those brief five minutes, we nourished each out and boosted our viewpoints because we could defend our point of view in the safety of our appreciation and respect for each other.
Similarly, both Trump and Obama
clearly demonstrate love and devotion to their families, their wives, their children, their friends. Certainly how they differ on how conjoined the two are between family and office. What is a more obvious distinction is how it is made up.
Obama's love of wife and daughters
is crystal clear. His vision and direction were defined by leaving the world a better place for his daughters and the world. He went after safety with his heart on his sleeve. You cannot doubt his deep reflection on the devastation guns have self-inflicted among their midst. Such a contrary to the view that the world perceives them to have:
That they are the world referee, where countries like Canada and England mere peacekeepers when violence erupts. Upholding the rights of humanity and defending basic human rights by giving out riches in the form of monetary relief, protection, feeding the poor and saving the health of others before themselves.
"Your positiveness is like a beacon toward others, inspiring optimism and faith."
~ Jeannette Marshall
That is another distinct difference between Trump and Obama. Their approaches are so different. Obama's legendary empathy was trying to remove nuclear threat in areas that are war torn, corrupt or falling apart. Obama zeroed in on the most foreseeable threats, and I'm guessing here .....
- The greatest singular figure posing a threat to the United States, North America and the UN was Bin laden. As Bin Laden faded into the background, martyrdom growing as his survival held on. Leading the fearful example that you can get away with murder and be acclaimed and praised for it. The need to snuff it out clear.
- Corruption in the financial nucleus of American financiers was rampant. Made worse by his powerless capability to inflict any change. Handcuffed by the political system
on the environment versus it being a hoax seems apparent differences between Trump and Obama. Completely opposing views. The American citizens clearly confused between who is right, who is wrong, or is anybody right?
Health of the country views
communicated at odds. Where one says that if you believe, you can accomplish and the other says the country is at the brink of disruption.
Health is a necessity
they both agree. The journey or road map differing completely. Causing instability and fear to the ill and the elderly and the poor. Faith in its country ever brightly filled with optimism that the democracy alone can alleviate their concerns.
appear differently in each others' eyes. One sees the right to everyone to belong while the other sees it as being a privilege and not a right to live among the community it seeks to destruct.
Our home and native land
even has uncertainty clouding our core. The questions one must ask is whether we are on a road of redemption and worthiness?
Is the direction of our politics
in our eyes the vision we want for our future and children? If it isn't, are we facing the right direction and making the changes needed to survive and flourish?
What comes first? Safety security air?
Is the debate we hear resonating among everyone: the politicians, the media, our own voices. What is our greatest risk immediately is what panic makes us ponder. Our pocket books, our safety, or ability to breath for generations, not merely years to come?
There lies the difference
Who can make the strongest case in what should be the main focus today will be the winner. If the lowly citizen is left to deal with the consequences, will it spell optimism, inspiration, activation and execution.
Promise made, promised delivered
Execution is being able to deliver on promises shaped by plans and steps taken. When the promises are glowing brightly like a beacon as a lighthouse is for lost ships.
