Hot - America


What do the Americans expect from their new President? What should Obama and Mccain address in their Presidential campaign? This is the hot debatable topic in America. Where should both the Presidential candidates Obama and Mccain concentrate to be popular among common American people? This is now hot-American.

If I were the candidate I would address common Americans’ day-to-day problems of their livelihood. In a tremendous financial crisis, foreclosures, mortgage payments, education of children, health insurance, rising gas price and even daily expenditures are matter of concern to everyone.

The federal Government passed $700 billion bailout plan but this will not serve purpose of common people. This huge money will go into the pockets of Wall Street traders or big corporate houses.

Indian concern


Common American people are loosing their jobs (160000 job loss in September alone). Total job loss in the year 2008 is 750000!!

Pay packages are either as it is or falling but consumer prices are rising due to inflation. Americans in general are finding difficulties to meet their expenditures required for their livelihood.

Neither common Americans nor politicians or Government have addressed employment issue since many years. They were living in a fool’s heaven during that time.

The President, Government, senate and congress have ignored tremendous economic growth in Asian region. They simply ignored power of China in manufacturing sectors and of India in service sectors but kept themselves busy in Iraq war or policing Iran. Both China and India have huge population who can easily outrage Americans from their jobs. Foolishly previous Governments supported Pakistan, the then a rogue state, and impose sanction over India because of their N-test. India has successfully faced the sanction and lost nothing but America lost lot of business with them.

Meanwhile educated and skilled Indian youth captured the job markets. USA needed skillful software engineers for their silicon valley and the Indian youths fulfilled the same. When American governments tighten visa rules the corporate houses outsourced their works. More than a million of Indian youths are working in call centers and other areas for American companies. Internet has provided them opportunity to work in house for them. Most of the financial giants opened their corporate offices in India to tap skill of Indian youth.

Should American Presidential candidates address problem of job loss in their campaign?

Asia factor and Presidential candidates in America


China, on the other hand, has provided facilities to corporations working in manufacturing sectors. Many big corporations have their manufacturing units situated in China. Cheap Chinese labor, cheap land and tax benefits made China a desired destination for the American corporations.

Not only India and China but also small countries like Philippines and Sri Lanka have grabbed lot of jobs. Investments, earnings and jobs are moving to Asia but expenditures remained in American side. This is a deadly combination.

No President can change this magically because it is too late for those who were living in a fool’s heaven for decades. This is hot for Americans! really hot!!

So the Presidential candidates Obama and Mccain have to address these as core concern. Did you see this in Presidential debates? Hot-American. Hot-American. Hot-American. Hot-American. Hot-American. Hot-American.

Addition: President Obama


This hub was written when campaign for the post of American President was at its peak. Long time have been past since then. Obama has won the presidential election and has taken charge of the office replacing President Bush.

President Obama has been in office since January 20, 2009. He has spent more than two and half months in office.

Large section of people in America and rest of the world had expected some charisma from President Obama. They thought that he will come out with some magic wander to solve their economic and financial problems. However, nothing like that happened so far.

Dow Jones and NASDAQ continues to plunge (With some exceptions), Industries and businesses are slowing down, job losses are at their place and common American citizens are continuing with their problems.

Recent terrorist attack on America again made them afraid. (updated on April 5, 2009)

Jyoti,

Though the election in the US is over President Obama should address these problems. Of course, he has taken some in his hands.

Dear Sunil,

President Obama does not have a magic wander, as people felt. He is as ordinary a president as others.

Americans can only do better if they change their habits and do not depend on a cherisma.

Hi Mohit and Mrinal,

Thanks for commenting. Indians are much skilled and irresistible. It will be better for President Obama to implement suggestions to bail out Americans.

Dear Constant walker and Shadesbreath,

I agree with both of you. All truths are relative. I request you to read the series. You may not come into a conclusion by reading a single hub. Problem is deep rooted so the answer needs to be wide angled.

Thanks for comments.

You're right, but it's not just American business and trade policies.  It's the culture.  We've legistlated out the ability to discipline children, and raised a generation of Americans who were too lazy to do their homework and who think the world owes them a favor, who have no respect for effort and the concept of "long term rewards."  The generation in school now is going to be even worse.  Wow, are they scary.  America is going to have to circle the drain for a long time to fix all the stupid crap we've done.  We did it to ourselves though, so, we get what we paid for.

Neither one of these guys can fix it. One "might" fix some of it, the other might fix some other parts of it. The people have to fix it if they want it done.

Good piece, Jyoti, and I believe you are absolutely right. And to answer your question: Yes, I have heard Senator Obama address these issues and concerns.

McCain pretends the problem does not exist and counts on his supporters to be too stupid to know what is happening... BEEN happening for many years.
