I found myself waking up yesterday morning, turning on the TV, and hoping that America had made the right choice. Why should I care as I?m not American? I care because I know what 8 years of Bush has done for the world and know how a wrong choice can effect the world.
I usually don?t trust any politicians, who seem to only be in it for themselves, a view tainted by local politics as well as on a national level, but for some reason Obama comes across differently. It may just be that I?m happy to see the end of Bush, but in Obama I see an intelligent person who I hope will restructure America to something that it used to aspire to, the land of the free.
Bush will only be remembered for war, the war on terror, the war in Afghanistan and Iraq, the war on Islam, and the war against freedom. It?s all too much to go into here but the demonisation of Islam, the detention camps at Guantanamo, and the enforced ?democracy? on other countries are things that really get to me, and I hope that this will change.
I won?t hold my breath just yet, but there is a chance now for change.
