Random Thoughts and Questions

Already the Right Wing Press has attacked Obama as a "flip-flopper". That term is incorrect. When has changing your mind became a negative label on a person who can change their mind over new information, evidence, or observation? If people were never allowed to change their mind, what kind of world would us Americans be living in today?

Answer: read the Bible. We would still be living in that era.

Also, Obama is criticized for changing his position with what the polls say. Again, what is wrong with that. Isn't the idea of "Representative Government" is a person representing the population as a whole? So shouldn't our politician's ideas be the same of what the public wants? Or does the media want the only viable candidates to be afraid from diverging from party lines? Because polarizing the people = ratings!

But Corporations never change their idea of what they want. They want power and control and money.

Who represents the interests of America, us citizens who hold no control, no power of persuasion (i.e.: not being a campaign contributor)? a "flip-flopper" or a "hard-liner"?

And if the people want a President who doesn't deviate from his or her's political or contributor's causes, and tells us Americans that the decisions he or she makes is "good for you" no matter what the polling says is the people's will, then why is the Nation called a Democratic Nation? Shouldn't we just turn into a Dictatorship? Then will we never have to worry about what the country should do?
