Look Mom, No burning flags!
If there was a greater gift, or a greater way to congratulate the American people it would be this... Have you seen a single burning American flag anywhere in the world since the election of Obama?
I guess this is something for the American people to ponder. How come, people around the world are so excited about Obama? How come people appear to stop hating Americans all of a sudden!? Democracy didn't change. Liberty didn't change. Freedom didn't change, so what did?
Looking back at historical data to figure out what's going on right now is something I do for a living. In a completely different form of course. But just like scientists who study seismic activity go over all the data they have acquired prior to an earth quake, this is one political earthquake that deserves it's own study and deep analysis.
So what really changed? Just look around and you'll know that the change isn't really all that huge. Just replacing one man, with another man. One with a hidden agenda that no one knows that seem to favor corporates, wars and appears to be dumb and destructing (internally and externally) to one that is open, clear, favors the people around the world.
These are historic times indeed. Not because the US has elected the first African American president. But because for the first time in the world the US have elected a world leader that THE WORLD favors.
I guess, there is still hope in self-correcting democracies after all. And the checks-and-balances we've been hearing about do actually exist.
I for one congratulate more than just the American people, I congratulate the whole world for being so great as to allow their sentiments to transparently send the greatest message of them all to every last small town in the USA; Choose wisely and we will love you! People are no longer burning American flags, but how things will progress remains to be seen.
