Power to the people - in this difficult time, the peoples of the United States of America have the future in their hands.

Very soon the peoples of America will be charged with the responsibility of choosing the future direction of a mighty country. I encourage you to make your vote count, to seek the facts for yourselves. Knowledge is power. Let not creed, nor background, nor charm, nor race dictate your choice. Rather determine whether your candidate is honourable, ethical, intelligent, decisive and of good stamina.

I googled for information on the policies of the two parties.

Here is Senator Obama's site. If you click on "Blue print for change - download document" you'll find his party's stance on some important issues.

Here's an overview from the document.

• Enact an Emergency Economic Plan to Inject Immediate Relief into the Economy
• Provide Meaningful, Permanent Tax Relief for Middle Class Families
• Protect Homeownership
• Make Strategic Investments in America to Create Millions of New Jobs
• Improve Regulatory Oversight of Financial Markets
• Fight for Fair Trade Agreements
• Crack Down on Predatory Credit Card and Lending Practices
• Support Working Families and Strengthen Labor Laws"

Senator McCain's website lists Issues. If you click on further information and then continue to click you will get an idea of some strategies suggested to address the particular issue.
I wasn't able to find a summary of proposed policies or I'd list them here.

I am posting this because the future direction America takes affects us all as we've so recently seen. I beseech you to choose wisely and after the decision is made, take some time and care for yourselves.

It's amazing how this election has captured and held the attention of regular folks throughout the world. Hopefully we will participate in the process with spirit and truth so our force can be the constant catalyst for change, for the World's sake.

Yes Usiku. Truth and honour and integrity are so important. Your country is held in high regard as a mighty world power. Such power can achieve so much when managed well for the greater good.

I posted again today with the words of one of our respected singers, John Farnham. I also posted a utube video of him singing "You're the voice". I hope this gives people the courage to stand up and be counted. We have compulsory voting. You have the right to vote voluntarily. It's an honour, a privilege and a big responsibility. The world has its eyes on America at this time. The policies of the new President will shape the course of the world as we know it. That's why we ordinary people in countries everywhere are watching and waiting and hoping.
