Barack Obama - Highlights from the 2004 Convention

Gone are the days of scapegoats. America, how divided though in health care issue, are still looking forward to deciding for either a new president to step in or the same old struggle to enjoy with in the person of Barack Obama, the incumbent president of the United States seeking for a new term . . .

Now that the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the constitutionality of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act or also known as “ObamaCare” on June 28, 2012, there can only be two questions the Supreme Court’s decision impliedly left to help Americans decide in 2012 presidential election: firstly, if Obama wins, ObamaCare will prosper and will continue to either challenge America or divide her. Then, what is the best move? Secondly, If Obama loses the game to a strong Republican contender, ObamaCare will face a total makeover, and America will face a new phase of beginning, a new phase of healing, or a new political ploy of reconciling. Then, which is better?

The 2012 presidential campaign, we all know, isn’t a monopoly of just one issue. However, what has become so dramatic and sensationalized issues that directly involved a candidate will bring either a good or a bad impact. America has quite several issues dramatized along the way of the 2012 presidential campaign period: the immigration law issue, the hostage crisis, the freedom of information uproar, the gay marriage endorsement, etc., plus not to be forgotten the marijuana and the latest ObamaCare constitutionality, and counting. But what’s the point of these issues to the 2012 presidential campaign? Presidential candidates know that these issues will help them make or break their ambition to the White House. But are these issues really helpful after all?

This 2012 presidential campaign is as tough as to convince the whole America to embrace communism. The campaign is unreadable, and even the most trusted political pundit can not draw an objective anticipation of who’s going to win, without a one or two reservations. However, now that ObamaCare has continuously won its negative popularity after the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the mandate of it, does it follow that this health care mandate will monopolize the debate in this 2012 presidential campaign? I must say, “A big yes.” Health care in America is as staple food as rice in the Philippines. President Obama, for me, is on his right tract to make health care compulsory. Does it follow that Obama will win or lose in the game? Most likely, yes. As far as my observation of the America’s election is concerned, majority of American voters are quite discreet but vocal of their opinions. It could not only be meant that no matter how dominating the notorious health care issue would be in most campaigns, Obama’s ambition to another term is terminated, at that level. He might win in the other side of a dollar coin.

However, if only I could vote and that my single vote could translate it into either a plurality votes or a non-appealable decision vote, then I will vote President Obama for a quit to give way to another hopeful. Kindness is also a virtue. To save face, Obama should have known that.
