The last six years of presidential executive decisions, has successfully changed the fabric of American society and also, the economic stability of America, as well as causing elevated racial tension and bringing many players into the 2016 presidential Election. Many feel the need for change, along with new dynamic leadership
It is not coincidence that the frontrunners for both parties are from the far left and far right of their parties. America is split between a strong nouveau left socialist movement spurred on by a socialist president, and the re-emergence of a patriotic movement, to take back America, that is led by a “get back to basics” plain-talking businessman, Donald Trump.
The two emerging frontrunners, Democratic Candidate, Bernie Sanders and Republican Candidate Donald Trump are as different as night and day. The American people are split down the middle between what party could best lead the nation forward into the next four years. Many Americans now believe the Obama Administration has totally failed the American people in nearly every aspect of leadership, from health care to foreign policy. Our military is being reduced, while potential adversaries are increasing military spending and becoming more belligerent.
Sanders’ platform appears to be further left than that of the Obama Administrations, but his supporters turn out in droves to support him, and his charismatic personality attracts the Hillary Clinton supporters that are leaving her in droves, because of her quickly emerging legal troubles.
Should the National GOP, not endorse Trump as their presidential candidate, their party would split even further than it has nationally. Trump has left his options open to an Independent campaign. Speculation locally in Delaware is, the Independent Party of Delaware would support Trump, along with many of the 150,000 unaffiliated independents. Whether or not, this would cause a democratic presidential win in 2016, is left to one’s own speculation.
Both Sanders and Trump have strong charismatic personalities and support, however Trump has gained a tremendous lead in a strong republican field, while Sanders is gaining hes support mainly from Clinton’s recent legal misfortunes. With fifteen months between now and the 2016 elections, many variables could change with a highly fickle and volatile American voting public.
This election will change the very fabric of American society and probably the balance global power and dominance. It is up the the American people to decide which path that America should pursue. Do we want to remain a free republic and an example of freedom to people globally, or do we want to become just, “one more nation” in a melting pot of mediocrity. The American voters should vote their consciences, no matter what they are told.
I am an eternal optimist and still have confidence in the American people and the Constitutional Republic that has lasted nearly two-and-a-half centuries. At any rate, this will be an exciting election and I believe the election results will surprise everyone.
