Siasa za Marekani bwana! Kuna mgombea anasema anataka kufanya Marekani iwe kubwa Kwa mara nyingine, hivi ni lini iliwahi kuwa kubwa, Ni wakati gani imekuwa ndogo, Kwa nini? Tukumbuke uchumi wa Marekani Kwa sasa Kwa vipimo vya pato la taifa unaongoza duniani, ni dollar 18,558 ikifuatiwa na China Kwa mbali yaani dollar 11,383. Hapo bado hujalinganisha mambo mengine Kama nguvu za kijeshi na kadhalika. Siasa zina mambo.
“we want to make this nation great AGAIN” – says one of the two bitterly contending US presidential Candidates, I got time this morning to think about a number of questions; when America was exactly great, when did it become small? Why? We all know the challenges of civil rights including the rights of women to vote America grappled with during her gloomy past. What about the cowardly act of dropping atomic bombs at Hiroshima and Nagasaki in WW2, could anyone consider that was greatness? If it was great at that time how could it be small now when her GDP is number one in the world (USD 18,558) and accounts for 24.5% of the global GDP followed by far by China (with a GDP of USD 11,383), when her current president is Barack Obama and has ruled America for two terms? When the most vicious enemy of US and leader of terrorism was taken out with no collateral damage under leadership of the current Commander in Chief, When for the first time America has a woman as the presidential candidate from a major political party? I would think there wasn’t greater time than this! You know what I mean!
