Michelle Obama speaks to the Nation

It is one of the most powerful speeches of our times.

Which one of the 301 Million Americans who has watched her was not moved by it? There was a point, an inneundo, a hint that touched every soul in that beautiful speech.

That couple, Michelle and Barak are the ideal leaders for our nation, they have a heart big enough to embrace every one, hug every one, empathise with every one and understand every one. Yes I am a man, and yes I was teary like several other humans in that audience. The last few times that brought such joyful tears were when the gutless, war mongering, sycophantic republicans were booted out of the congress on Tuesday November 7, 2006, when Nelson Mandela was released and when Carter, Arafat and Peres signed the peace treaty.

I hope the World does not think about us Americans by the actions of the Republican party and judge us. We are as good as any one in the world, we Americans want peace and are not eager to go to war with others. The extremists among the Republicans are the mirrors of the extremists around the world. I sincerely believe, it is time for the Republicans to believe that there is an Almighty God out there who is powerful than them. God is loving and not the hateful and revengeful God that the Neocons and a few Evangelists want to make it out to be. I really hope that the Republicans go back to their roots and rid of all the extremists who talk about war and who want to destory others... we need people who have the capacity and ability to dialogue. At this time it is hard to find a Republican who believes in a dialogue and I want to be disproved, because I have hopes with the republican party and the moderate majority will wake up and tell them boys enough is enough. http://www.mikeghouse.net/Articles/Republican-or-Democrat-which-way.asp

In contrast I listen to McCain and I cannot relate with him any more, they are about war, destruction, frightening others. They are loaded with hate and contempt towards others, pull any video of McCain and show me where he is not hateful and a war monger. Do I want a president whose proclivities are not solutions but wars? Is he capable of thinking in terms of sitting across the table and solving the problems?

My Dream

I have a dream, a dream to strengthen the pluralistic values of America, and the desire to encourage the community of nations to review our values of Liberty, Justice and co-existence as catalysts for prosperity.

No community or a nation can have undue advantages over others. Such benefits are temporary and deleterious to lasting peace.We have to maintain a healthy balance within our communities and with all nations, what is good for America, has got to be good for the world and vice versa.

God bless America

  1. Mike, I agree

    She was way better than Hillary. And still pleasant, calm and collected. Barack is the best political speaker I ever heard. Last Sunday we had a visiting Black priest give the sermon. Electrifying!

    You are from India. You know for yourself how chauvinistic most Americans are. You could not dream up a better resume for a cosmopolitan president than Obama And they say he is inexperienced!
