A View from the North

Obama For President

As a Canadian watching the election process in the USA, I feel more like I am watching a docu-drama or a soap opera. If only our politics were this exciting, we might actually get people out to vote! And that is exactly my point to this article. Barak Obama is doing exactly that. He has managed to ignite a spark in Americans that has inspired the uninspired.

Where does this come from? As a student of the Law of Attraction and the Science of Getting Rich, I fully believe THAT is where it is coming from. This man has a message of hope and inspiration that his critics want to dismiss as a demonstration of his naivity, but call it what you will, he is bringing new voters into the mix, he is inspiring people and he has an amazing ability to bring people together.

Listen to his words. He speaks in primarily positive terms. His belief in all that is possible shines through. I have heard some Conservatives say that Obama's plan for Iraq is naive and even dangerous. They feel that pulling out of Iraq poses a real danger to the free world. I contend that those who believe this are the naive ones. They are failing to recognize the real danger while, as Obama points out, the US has been distracted by the war in Iraq.

What does the Law of Attraction state? In simplest terms, what we think about we bring about. Mother Theresa had stated that she would never join in a group focused on war, but she would join one focused on peace. I am not suggesting that the US President should attempt to negotiate with the Taliban, but it is clear that invading Iraq has done little to impede the progress of the real enemy.

"What we shouldn't be doing is spending time tearing each other down, we should be lifting the country up," was his response to Hillary's plagerism accusation. This is it in a nutshell. The "old" way of doing things, including winning an election, was to attempt to tear down your opponent. Obama chooses to rise above, and all the while he certainly does point out faulty policy of the Republicans.

In policy, Obama and Hillary do not differ much at all. It is in their delivery that there is a difference. Whichever one of these candidates becomes the nominee, he or she will most certainly become the first African American, or first female President of the United States. And that, my friends, is progress and history in the making.
