Fellow citizens of the United States, let us call a spade a spade. The current acrimonies, of lies, divisiveness, and all sorts of blackmails, deceptions, and slanders coupled with disrespect to the person holding the highest office in the land, President Barack Obama and the White House is not politics but pure racism. This is done deliberately by those we thought should know better in Washington. If we must preserve and guide our rights and freedom to speak and speak freely, think, associate and hold an opinion, the current cloud of uncertainty hovering over our nation must be made to disappear by our collective behaviors and attitude towards one another in the name of what is not politics. Pure politics is that which fosters progress amongst humans and not man’s inhumanity to man and retrogression. The Republican Party’s attitude and designs towards everything President Barack Obama has done since day one, and is still doing with best intention, are unholy, and it is very unfair to the people of this great country who are suffering from the unwholesome racist attitude.
This is the time for Americans to say, gone are the days when Blacks were lynched publicly with fanfare just because of arrogance of ignorance and a primordial state of the mind of some young species of human kind who thought that Africans were not human beings. President Barack Obama is a free born American by an African father who was on an educational sojourn in the land of the free, the United States of America. He had prepared himself and qualified for the Office of the President of the US. He was duly elected with a solid mandate, but some elements of the Republican Party have refused from day one to allow Mr. President to carry out the progressive plans that he has for the people of this country and the world. Whatever good he had done for the nation has one way or the other been turned upside down and is rejected as good deeds even when the ordinary people know them to be good deeds. Under his command while with his war council, America and the world’s worst enemy, Bin Laden was eliminated as he Obama had earlier promised; yet the Republicans tried to rob him of this great achievement. The Great United States was the only country amongst most of the known industrialized countries of the world that its citizens were without healthcare insurance policy. As a result, some Americans who are desperate to heal themselves would go to Canada where a healthcare policy can accommodate them. Especially that some known medicines that are known to cure certain killer diseases like cancer, are banned from entering America from neighboring countries like Mexico and Canada. Such a policy could only have been brought about by the likes of Romney, the corporations that manufacture medicines in America. There is no doubt that Romney and Ryan would say that such a policy is in the interest of Americans when it is actually not. President Obama brought about a universal healthcare Bill that was passed into law by Congress and validated by the highest court in the land, the Supreme Court, another great achievement for the people of this country, yet Republicans want Obama’s head for this.
Here is a man who inherited from the Republicans, a hopeless and helpless administration that had brought America to shame. There was general insecurity of life and property within and beyond the borders of the United State brought about by the arrogance and uncompromising attitude of the Republican led Administration of George Bush before the international community. Before the very time President Obama was elected, an American and America were scorned outside the boarders of the United States. American travelers could attest to this. We can still also remember that during the 2008 electioneering campaigns the former First Lady Hilary Clinton used to tell her audience that if she was elected, she will appoint her husband as an ambassador to the world to restore America’s image. This was expected as Hilary herself became that ambassador under President Obama. It was because America’s image abroad was in ruin caused by the Republican led administration of this country at the time.
The Republicans are also holding the unemployment problem in the country against President Obama. The Republican allies, the big corporations, created the unemployment in the country by willfully laying off millions of able bodied citizens from their gainful employments and replacing humans with robots. There are no more jobs for receptionists and telephone operators; most of them have been replaced by robots in many large corporations. They have unfairly held the country’s workforce to ransom with unemployment because they thought the economic condition of unemployment rate at 8% would be wrongly blamed on the President, and because they think the common people are too dumb to know Republicans’ mischievousness. Unemployment is the only issue with which Republicans think that the coming election would be won by their flag bearer, Mitt Romney. This is one of the lies too, Barack will be re-elected.
Republicans forgot that well meaning and thoughtful people in the country have been observing events in the political arena of this country. If Republicans have cooperated with President Obama, a bill on employment creation would have solved the problem. Obama looked for bipartisanship with Republicans for two years; he stretched both of his arms to the Republicans which they refused to accept ignominiously. The President meant well in his attempt working with the Republicans to a point that many people in the country were getting upset with the President because they knew that Obama was wasting precious time since the Republicans had stuck to their guns of no compromise with President Barack Obama, an African American. Every proposal brought forward to Republican leaders by Obama was “NO,” to the point that the Republican Party became a party of “NO” at the time in the eyes of most Americans.
It is an African proverb that okpishia o yo Inighu ne erthai puno oni Inighu, meaning that an elder does not allow fire to quench in the kitchen while he or she is there. The elder statesmen and women of this great nation must muster the courage to say the truth out, now. Republicans need to stop playing the so called “Third World” politics whereby politics becomes a do or die affair in which they have to tell incredulous and outright lies. It is only in some developing countries that progressive proposals are rejected by political parties just because such proposals emanated from the other party. It was never like this before in America, therefore, one reason one could adduce is because President Obama is a Black man, and if this is a correct assumption, it is racism that should be abhorred in the 21st century; humanity is moving on forward and not going back.
They need to stop telling “detasteful” and distasteful lies and making them look like truth by repeating the very obvious lies over and over. Republicans are still canvassing for the repeal of the universal affordable Healthcare law that has been upheld by the Supreme Court just because a Blackman has done what was thought to be impossible previously. Telling lies is what Republicans did throughout their recent Convention in Tampa, Florida. This attitude and behavior is not of any good learning benefit to our youth who we were supposed to prepare to take over from us. Are we saying to our children and the youth of the country who are watching us that calling White Black and Black White is politics and the best way? Is this not a bad example and miss-education for the youth to follow wrongly?
Governor Mitt Romney and his running mate do not have the quality and skills necessary for governing a nation of the type of the United States. America is no longer the Old wild west where only the kinds of Romney matters. America now is the melting pot of humanity and ideas. There are many other human kinds or ethnicities that are now living in the United States. This is not by accident for in the Atlantis Rising and the New Atlantis, by Plato and Francis Bacon’s respectively, there exists a bold resolution that was made that this western continent which is now the United States should become the site of the philosophic empire. This resolution was said to have been made in the ancient world thousands of years ago. You may read also, the Secret Destiny of America by Manly P. Hall for more understanding. Therefore, current immigrants of different starters and levels of humans who are now naturalized citizens of this Union are not here by accident; it was destined that they will be here and they are here. Republicans should remember this history. The new immigrants should therefore not be discriminated against by the likes of Romney, whose grandfather or father was an immigrant to the United States from Mexico.
It should be made clear that the Romneies and many Republicans are good human beings, but their policies as they relate to governance of a pluralistic society are enemies of the people and their welfare in a democracy. Consequently, the Republican Party and Romney will not seek for the good of all the people of this country. Their policies and utterances about human ideas are self centered and, are of negroephobism in nature therefore unfit in modern time.
There is another African proverb, “Akhayagboke” pronounced “Aa-kha-ya-gbo-ke.” Exclamatorily, this proverb means “if the people of the world were given the power to share or distribute the benefits of nature.” Interpretatively, the wise question in exclamation is, “who would have allowed a poor person to have a child?” It is the reason for another wise capsule which is, “Ayagboke” pronounced “Aa-ya-gbo-ke” meaning that the people of this world were not given the authority to divide the gifts of Nature, for Nature knows that like the Romneies would not give a chance for a common person to grow to become an employer like the large corporations. It is one of the reasons Romney should not be placed in a position to kill initiatives meant for progressive development as he is thinking that everything should be provided by the wealthy like him. Republicans claim that it is corporations that create jobs therefore they should be exempted from paying tax, but that ordinary Americans should. The question for the Republicans and Romney is, what is the role of government if corporations are to regulate and provide for the people in the name of free enterprise, personal liberty and individual right to do their biddings?
Our opinion therefore, is that Romney does not have what it takes to govern a people since he does not really understand what the actual responsibilities of governance entail. Experiences in business enterprises are not and do not translate to knowledge of the duties of government as is being demonstrated by Romney in what he says. Romney has not explained how he would create jobs when he becomes president. In the mind set of the Republicans, President Obama will not be re-elected if unemployment remains what it is. Republicans simply want Obama out because he does not look like who they want as President of the United States no matter how much and what he had achieved since he became President 3 plus years ago.
All the insult, ignominious disrespect on the Office of the President and the person holding that office which is President Obama, are nothing but a product of negroephobism. It is clear to most people, and the Vice President, Joe Biden alluded to it when he said, and “they want you back in chains.” The VP was right and Americans of high moral character need to speak up so that race relations in this God’s own country will become what it was meant to be – melting pot of humanity and their ideas.
Republicans should be reminded that within the realm of nature, no condition is permanent as everything is subject to change which is the only permanent thing in the universe. If African Americans were servants yesterday, which is the reason Republicans are looking down on President Obama disrespectfully while they insult the Office of the President, it is wrong because there is nothing stopping an African American, like any other American anymore today from becoming a president of America if it is his or her determination and desire. This rationalization is supported by yet another African proverb, which says that, Omo odo nbo wa do oga” meaning that a servant is coming to become the boss or master; it is a natural law that no condition is permanent. Race relation in America is improving and it should be allowed to continue to move on forward progressively.
