U.S presidential election campaign has always been the a matter of world headlines. Statistics predicts too much about who’s winning and who is falling behind. Then there’s the outcry, blame-game; each candidate in criticism of their competition. This is the first time that I’ve followed the candidacy from very close using social medias and news portal.
One thing though, that I have observed as a common campaign slogan in these events is this. The new president is always the best option for otherwise a doomed American future, and that the residing president has led the nation to a historical failure. I would like to take example of Clinton, who got into controversy and was blamed for a poker-faced liar during the ending years of his presidency. Bush crossed all the boundaries with the rise of the 9/11 controversy theory, and waging an unnecessary war. Obama was the next hero, and it is no surprise that he is now tagged a bad choice for the Chief.
So personally I like to believe that this is just happens with the retiring old officer. It all started with Obama Care. And then his birth origin was questioned. His policy towards Syrian refugee is widely and openly criticized as blasphemy. Let’s not stop there. If you follow Donald Trump in his Facebook and #makeamericagreatagain, the comments are filled with hatred against the old comrade by the same people who voted him. Even people are expressing views that they are changing from Democratic to Republican just to vote Mr. Trump.
The new campaign, “Make America Great Again”, by Donald Trump, in my view, is a Christian Jihad (pun intended). Turning into offensive and aggressive in no time, from the defensive overview some months ago. He is turning against everything. Mexican migrants, China, refugees, and recently, the Muslims living in the country.
I have no idea if there are enough audience that are interested in what I have to say or that if I am even capable of putting my views on such a big topic, i am merely using my right to speak up. Might as well end up as a joke.
A recent buzz heating up the country about Muslims celebrating the 9/11as smoke drew up, has gotten my attention and willingness to express my view. I think people need to focus if this is really worth the attention. Isn’t this just an election heating up? What are you gonna do about it? Is there a law to punish people just because someone heard someone celebrating on the black day? Why is it now the best time to discuss something that happened a decade ago? Is not the basic right to respectful and dignified life of numerous American Muslims being violated by such worthless and nowhere leading facts?
It is just the election game, and a season for Americans to enjoy the election festival.
You know what’s inevitable? Someone’s gonna win the election. S/he is gonna bring a lot of agendas which will be hearty welcomed at first then gradually get criticized and openly opposed by the next presidential candidates, and the American People.
In Nepal we are experiencing an economical blockade. The Hill-residing ethnicity are unsatisfied with Indian attitude towards Nepal regarding our new constitution. If some bad events happen at India right now (which God forbid), I can guarantee there will be some ignorant people celebrating (a nonsense act). But it is not wise for a leader to bring it up for his election and use it for some temporary publicity.
