Expectations Part 1
The President of the United States of America’s first and foremost responsibility has been and should always be the safety of the United States of America and the people that live there. That includes, but is not limited to keeping peaceful relations with other countries and putting the safety of the American soldiers first at all times. Our military and sciences is our backbone whether anybody wants to acknowledge this fact or not. Without the military or our sciences we would not be where we are today.
The North American people were not always just consumers; and believe it or not a good portion of the North American people actually does want to work and be a productive people. It was not President Obama that sent our corporations and companies out of North America back in the 1970’s and 1980’s, but it was President Obama that promised new corporations and companies with new and better jobs. That promise is still unfulfilled making the American people appear weak and foolish and as though all we want is to take and take without putting forth any effort what so ever to other countries. This is so far from the truth and a major cause for the unrest within North America today.
Even Pope Frances does not comprehend the full scope of the situation in North America right now. Every attempt at opening up new jobs for the American people has been blocked by one organization or another; for one reason or another. Farm and ranch lands are being bought up to build more homes when there are hundreds of homes just sitting and waiting to be filled with people. And still we have homeless because there is not enough work to support a family. There are buildings that once were homes and businesses alike that are just sitting and waiting to be torn down and rebuilt because of structural damages and such on and so forth.
Here in Muskogee Oklahoma where many people are desperately searching for work and wanting to make a living we have many buildings just sitting and waiting for something to happen and areas where buildings that are dangerous have been torn down leaving empty property. Muskogee, Oklahoma is not the only place with these problems either. Ask around about the buildings and nobody seems to know anything about them, except for maybe what they once were years ago. Did I expect this when I came to Muskogee Oklahoma in 2009? No; I expected the city to be better and have more jobs available to the people.
Herein is the problem. Each individual state within the United States of America was and is set up to be responsible for their people living within each state. Each state should be held accountable by the people that live within their state to provide what is necessary for their state. It had never been and should not now be the responsibility of the President of the United States of America to see to it that the people get their needs taken care of; nor is it the responsibility of any Federal Agency or Government to insure that the American people are doing anything. The Federal Government should be concerning themselves with the smooth running of the White House and providing protection for the White House staff, not playing nursemaid to the people of America.
The individual states within North America have always run independently of one another as far as points of views and laws go. For instance; one state allows young men and women to marry at the age of sixteen while another will only allow marriages for under eighteen year olds with a parental consent form and yet another will not allow any marriages until the female or male is eighteen or older. It is also a documented fact that the states with a law allowing people to carry guns with them have fewer crimes than states that ban guns from being carried, but nobody is trying to force the gun carry laws on those states that have the gun ban; yet those states want to have guns banned in all states, including those with the current carry a gun law, This is wrong.
I suggest that if you want to live in a state that bans guns then do your homework and move to one of them, but each state is entitled to run as they see fit for the majority of their people. In fact that is each state’s responsibility. The heads of state is also responsible for reporting and answering to the office above them who reports to the President the statistics of each state whether good or bad. The President in turn should tell them what he or she expects of their state leaving all decisions to the state representatives. This leaves the main focus of the President of the United States of America on the issues of foreign relationships and dealing with keeping our nation safe.
