After speaking with a friend of my age group we got into the discussion of politics which usually occurs. I was shocked when he told me he hopes Obama wins in November. Both of us are full of experiences that would show this, with Obama's views, to be very damaging to our country. I questioned him to why would he want such a damaging thing to occur. His answer was that he felt that the people in this country was spoiled and that they needed to be educated with the hard times that Obama would bestow upon us. He was very confident that the working and energetic people would survive as they have in past destructive administrations. He felt that the hard times that an Obama administration would bring to this country would, if we survived, force the spoiled Americans to maturity. My friend may be right about the "me generation" that we older Americans have created for our youth. Perhaps we do need tough love for the youth of today in politics. We have become a nation that the youth choose to vote for a "fad" rather than the future of this country. Perhaps if we can survive an Obama administration we could become a nation that would vote for candidates that would strengthen the country and provide opportunity for those that have the energy level to achieve.
