Where are the leaders that will inspire us as a nation to stand among the world's citizens as leaders and set the standards for right and wrong, and to be seen as a nation that will protect the less fortunate, while encouraging individual achievement and success. We, as a nation are better than what we have become.
Our downfall is not a result of a democratic or republican ... it is the outcome of what we the people have accepted through the years. We've lost our way. We fight over nonsense while children are abused and not properly educated and our citizens live in poverty.
This election is not about jobs, or resumes or color.... it is about leadership! Leadership that will take the diversity of this land, be it black, white, asian, gay, straight, handicapped, rich, poor, smart or lacking, and inspire in us the desire to work, to provide for our families, to enjoy our national treasures and to share as a common people, as Americans, not as republicans or democrats.
Our success as a nation will come from within 'we the people' .... not from a executive order or program! We the people are the answer .... if only we had a leader.
