The Importance of the
Everything indicates that the presidential campaign in the United States of America, which will climax on November 6th, is getting to be exceptionally important. This depends, of course, of the way in which, day by day, the events unfold around both candidates, the one running for reelection, Barack Obama, and Mitt Romney who is, practically, the Republican candidate although there are institutional details still missing to consider him as the official candidate of that party.
It seems that the theme of the economy in the nation as well as around the world will be the crux of the presidential campaign. Certainly, the economy has achieved and continues to achieve proportions that could be considered serious. Right now the United States has a debt of more than $15 trillion, which continues to increase on a daily basis, and on which very high interests are paid every month to the creditors, the most important of which is China. Since the beginning of the fiscal year in October 2011, until June of this year, the United States has paid interest on U.S. treasury notes and bonds, Savings Bonds and Series of state and local government bonds, of more than three hundred seventy five billion ($375,867,511,477.84). Obviously, this is a situation that can not go on, at least from the point of view of what is basic or elementally convenient for the nation.
Those who in both parties are able to present sensible and patriotic ideas about the present situation should do so with the goal of protecting the high interests of the United States beyond partisan conveniences or those of both candidates.
On their part, the voters must make an effort to analyze carefully the reality of the situation and the viewpoints of the candidates, not being influenced by ads that are often deceitful, almost scientifically prepared to confuse the voters in some way. It is not easy to confuse everyone, because there are many groups and individuals who for a long time now have been analyzing the situation with level headedness, at least in the most important aspects. It should be taken into consideration the need that the voters have an opportunity to orient themselves well in the midst of such difficult circumstances, because electoral campaigns in many aspects are manipulated by individuals who are very capable in politics, who master ways to deceive and confuse the voters. Of course, to confuse them exclusively on behalf of the candidate for whom they are working.
