What of TV pundit Charles Krauthammer?

The dragnet is now complete, to corral the wealthy in the United States and their political cohorts around the world to support a Republican Party ticket that points to how they want the 2012 presidential election to be.

That Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan to combine as candidates and run against President Barack Obama and Vice-president Joe Biden, and the contributions will flow in for their (Romney/Ryan) campaign as never before in American history.

The ticket of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, as president and vice-president, respectively, has started an under current stream of the rich versus that average person; and more money toward one campaign, which happens to be the Republican Party's, is all there is to be done to win.

In other words, there can be no denying that a secret class warfare is underway, with the super-PACs, especially on the Republican side, reining in huge amounts in contributions to support their activities and advertisements in the media.

On the surface, there seems to be a quiet atmosphere of normalcy, but beneath it all is an unbridled canvassing for more resources to surpass the contributions needed now for present day campaigning than in any other time.

That is, if it must be necessary to "buy" the election, the means have to be there for it. On the contrary, the parties fighting on their merits will be secondary, until when the election is over. Winning is the only thing that matters, and one side is ready to go to any extent to get it.

That is how an email (8/14/12) by the present vice-president, Joe Biden, details the situation, by saying,

"Starting now, we can expect even more wealthy, right-wing ideologues lining up to support the Romney-Ryan ticket." and adding, "The people on the other side who are trying to buy this election are putting nasty, deceptive TV ads on the air right this very minute. They're not going away. They're getting worse."

Those are gruesome statements and they sound unbelievable, but they are true; and they must be taken seriously by the average voter, who normally tends to take everything that is going on for granted.

Thus, when a political pundit comes on national TV to say that, "Obama has no plan; no record to run on; nothing," then one must weigh in and ask,

"1. What about the 400,000 loss of jobs in 2009 that he has turned around to an average of 70,000 private sector jobs for continuous months? 2. How about the fact that the repeat of 9/11 or its kind has not taken place under his watch, and that National security measures to deter terrorists have been very strong to protect the American people? 3. In spite of all the controversies around the world, the U.S. seems to be at peace with its neighbors? 4. What about the alliance with Israel, in regard to stopping Iran's ambition for a nuclear weapon; and hasn't that been better than ever before? Etc., etc."

The economy has been a stumbling block for the Obama administration, which despite all odds, such as the "Arab spring" and the Japanese nuclear meltdown; he has been working extremely hard to get it on track.

Plus getting rid of Osama bin Laden, the perpetrator of the attacks on Washington D.C. and New York City, that have taken the lives of more than 3000 citizens in one awfully single day. He has engaged in a war with America's allies in Libya to oust a dictator, Moammar Gadhafi, without any American casualty.

The Middle East is practically "quiet", because he has the strongest military presence there to prevent Iran to wholly stop the oil flow from the Persian Gulf to the West, and so many economies of other countries have been functioning pretty well; including that of the U.S., of course.

If that isn't a good record for Obama to run on, as his opponents are making the American voters to believe, then nobody knows what that is. However, they are not asleep; and they know that he deserves a second term to implement the "change" that he has promised for a sound economy and a better America; one that rewards good work ethic, if any individual is prepared to take advantage of the opportunities that the country provides, no matter what his or her background.

Of course, he has plans to change "the system", and that is what the wealthy and the powerful are afraid of.

The idea of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan coming together will plunge the nation farther into the old system, in which only a small group of people prosper, leaving the majority (the middle class and working men and women) out.
